As a marathon runner, I am not only running, but also cycling, swimming and aquajogging. Therefore the calculation of the TRIMP and Cardioload is a great tool for me. It helps me to get an great overview of the overall training load. In addition the Vantage V informs me when the training leads to an overload and I can test my daily readiness to perform with the orthostatic test.
When I started running as a child, my dad gave me a Polar watch and a chest belt already. So I basically grew up with doing sports and monitoring my heart rate while running, biking or skiing. It was interesting to see how my heart rate developed over the years.
