Event #10 - Quantified Running
Running is one of the most popular fitness activities in Northern Ireland and almost all runners are into Quantified-Self (even if they don't yet know it) by measuring every time they run and then studying their stats.
This event focuses on those running technologies and their metrics and will aim to provide runners with a better understanding about their gadgets and the data they deliver and how best to apply to reach running goals. The session will cover the basics of heart rate & GPS, but will also highlight why you should be using a power meter on runs.
This event will be led by the QS Belfast Organiser, Dr Jonny Bloomfield, an experienced Sports Physiologist and British Athletics Running Coach who will lead an informative session with case studies and will answer any questions. Jonny will also be joined by Jim Vance, author of Run with Power, who will be dialling in to join us from his home in San Diego to share his knowledge and experience of running power metrics. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Run-Power-Complete-Meters-Running/dp/1937715434
