Initially GE is offering participants of the Hyde Park Dextro Energy Triathlon the chance to trial GE’s triTRACK in the three months leading up to the event.
GE’s triTRACK system logs and visualizes…
1 Daily swim, bike and run sessions versus perceived rate of exertion and corresponding heart rate for those with monitors
2 Quality and quantity of sleep
3 Quality of general diet and hydration
By collecting weekly training data from triathletes, GE aims to identify trends linked to specific training routines by sex, age group and triathlon distance. So that individuals can compare their training and gain learnings to help them improve for future events.
Tracking training is something that many athletes do already and a number of the elite BTF athletes have confirmed that they will be using GE’s triTRACK ahead of this year’s Hyde Park event.
To help encourage usage, all Hyde Park competitors who use triTRACK will be entered into a draw to win one of two pairs of top tier, grandstand tickets to the Triathlon at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Richard Allen, 9 Times British National Triathlon Champion, 70.3 Ironman Winner and Triathlon Coach comments; “Having had a preview of the system, I think it will be hugely beneficial to individuals looking to track their training and understand its correlation to their race day success.
He continues, “What I love is the simplicity and the visual way it expresses data. There are other more complicated systems available, but a lot of the age group athletes can find them too demanding and this can intimidate triathletes thinking about logging their training. GE’s triTRACK is a great system to start tracking your training on and I am sure that the additional incentive of winning grandstand tickets to Triathlon at the London 2012 Olympic Games will help provide a bit of extra motivation to keep ones logs updated.”
