American Record Holder 5K,10K, Half Marathon
As someone who is comforted by and interested in data, Polar has given me some great training tools. I feel that these tools help me find exactly where the fine line between progress and overtraining sits and keeps me on the productive side of things!
As someone who is comforted by and interested in data, Polar has given me some great training tools. I analyze daily workouts and weekly progress on the PolarFlow App and have been using the wrist heart rate and recovery tracking tools like the orthostatic test to guide my ever-evolving fitness levels during my last few marathon buildups. I feel that these tools help me find exactly where the fine line between progress and overtraining sits and keeps me on the productive side of things!
