Hands down the ultimate training experience…

For years power meters have been the standard in the world of performance cycling. They changed the sport dramatically and created a way for athletes to use data to their advantage and outperform traditional training methods.  Finally, this technology is available to runners!  As it did with cycling, power meters will revolutionize the way us runners train and race.  

Benefits of power based training:

  • Immediate and quantifiable feedback on your workouts
  • The ability to measure your running efficiency and wattage output
  • Maximize your running form and efficiency through micro-adjustments
  • Unlike traditional heart rate and pace training, power output is not influenced by external factors like heat, fatigue, and elevation. This allows you to get precise, measurable data.
  • Prevent overtraining and allow for predictable race performance.
  • Wattage based power zones for more precise training during each phase of your training cycle.
  • Racing with power provides a constant pacing strategy which prevents bonking

Prana Endurance Training partners with Stryd Power Meters to incorporate this ultimate new technology into your training plans. At the core of Stryd’s technology is a wearable sensor that measures a variety of factors which include Heart Rate, Pace, GPS, Vertical Oscillation, Leg Stiffness, Cadence to name a few.  We know this information can be overwhelming and that is why we are now offering power based training for runners. Working with a coach that specializes in using this data to lead you through your training is paramount to achieving what you may have once considered impossible.

Running with Power FAQs

Why Power? In one word – Precision. Power while running is measured in Watts which is an output of how much work your body is doing and how quickly it is doing that work. By knowing your power output, we can pinpoint your training, finding exactly what your critical power is at any given time. This provides us with the information we need to race and fuel in a more precise manner yielding the best results possible.

Why train with power?  Training with power will build your endurance, increase your speed, make you stronger on hills races, improve your form and running efficiency. Pacing by power will yield predictable results, and prevent bonking during your next race as you can monitor your watts during a race to stay within your target zone and race at your personal best. Simply put – You get the most out of every second you are training when you are training with power.

What is the advantage of training with a power meter over heart rate and pace? Traditional methods of training using heart rate or pacing by perceived efforts can be impacted by external factors such as heat, wind, cardiac lag, fatigue and even caffeine intake. Power output is constant and not affected by external factors, providing the most objective means of measuring your performance. At Prana Endurance Training we combine traditional means to performance measurements with wattage outputs to track your progression and formulate training plans and strategy. This guarantees peak racing performance and prevents overtraining or injury.

Do I really need a coach? Personalized coaching can provide not only a safe way of reaching your goals, but also the accountability and experience to ensure you are getting the most out of your training. This is especially true when training with power, which can quickly become overwhelming to most athletes. A knowledgeable coach will create workouts tailored towards you and analyze your key workouts to ensure you are always getting the most out of your training sessions and at the same time resting sufficiently. A coach will also help with your race planning for the season and provide the best strategy for each event.  At Prana Endurance Training we unique create training programs and plans for each of our athletes, adjusting them when needed to ensure that our athletes get the most of our their training and never have to play catch-up.
