Training Metrics to Track Readiness for Ironman Competition
Short description: Training and racing an Ironman triathlon is a long and difficult process. While just finishing the event is a goal for many, I've set my goal to qualify for and compete in the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. Quantifying and tracking my training and relating it to performance is essential to my success. This information allows me to know if I've done the required work to meet my goals and provides me with some estimation of my fitness on race day.

I am passionate about all things science, especially physiology, psychology and sports science. As a hobby, I've been competing in triathlons for the past 11 years.
Short description: During an ASU class led by Dr. Eric Hekler called “Designing Health Behavior Interventions”, I completed a do-it-yourself project, which was a Quantified Self based intervention designed to increase the amount of miles I biked each week. The core of the intervention was tracking miles biked, and the presentation will discuss complementary behavioral principles, results, and lessons learned.
