    Anyone have experience, can one use running power to measure power from jumping straight up?

    Would love to incorporate that into those explosive sessions. Thanks! 🙂

    I power my runs by listening my favourite power songs like Edge of Glory or Eye Of the Tiger 😀 – Have you seen this inspirational running video? -> running is anything else than boring

    I use 65-80% zone 1, 80-90% zone 2, 90-100% zone 3, 100-115% zone 4, & 115-130% zone 5.

    So… I'm glad this video was made, I'm very interested in running power. However, using my sport science super powers (aka being a nerd) I've found very limited evidence to suggest that power is accurate. Most papers on running power and running power metered conclude that, at the moment the technology and algorithms aren't good enough to train on running power alone and suggest that currently running power is just as accurate as using HR. Thoughts?

    call me skeptical, has GTN just become a subtle advertising platform. I would say yes, you would say no . . .probably

    good job, Mark! But I cant understand how can i belive the power meter that based on a gps-data, but gps in vantage v is not very accurate and pace have more fluctations than in v800, for example. Thats's why and power plot is not consistent your real efforts

    I have been hesitant to try running with power since running is so much more affected by heat than the bike. We just can’t cool ourselves as well. So if you set your run power zones but it is hot or humid, you probably won’t be able to hit those zones correctly – especially long intervals. Has this been an issue for you? Do you have to retest frequently depending on weather?

    It makes sense if you think about it. When we run we can use all our power, the way we were designed to. On a bike we can only use the power in the way the machine (bike) will accept it, so it will be less. Like how cycling vo2 max is lower than running vo2 max.

    Dude ran a half marathon at 3:25 per km. That's incredible

    I'm trying to understand running with power by comparing to cycling with power. A cycling 20 min ftp test gives you a power you can hold for 1 hour and training zones. A running 6 min map test gives you training zones only? Why is running with power such a different time scale? Shouldn't the training zones and power numbers be fairly close to each other (except for the slight rise in running because it uses the entire body)?

    Great 1/2-marathon !
    But I dont buy, how awesome running on power is.
    HR is a much more precise tool, that also automatically incoorporates factors like fatique, illness and overtraining.
    Using only power, overtraining and injury is a latent danger.

    I think the biggest benefit of a power meter is instant feedback as opposed to your HR lagging behind. This is easy to monitor on a bike with a head unit. However, I can't imagine constantly looking at my watch to check my power. Especially during harder intervals. Has this been a problem for you Mark? What was your experience with having to look at your watch to see the power numbers?

    Great job on your half marathon Mark! I’m waiting for my Polar Vantage V that I won on your show. Until it arrives I will be running by pace and feel. Love the show

    Sounds really interesting. One question I've always had with biking (and now with running) is how this relates to heart rate training. Do you find that when you're in these zones, it lines up fairly well with your heart rate zones? Meaning, when you're on a steady run in Z2 for power, is your HR also in your Z2 as it relates to lactate threshold? Regardless, I'm excited for more metrics to dive into and it's something I'm considering adding to my training.

    Sorry if this sounds controversial, but real pros run on feel not any sports watch, surely?
