There are a lot of metrics available to runners these days – pace, distance, time, V02 max, recovery advisor, race predictor, stress score, heart rate zones, lactate threshold, vertical oscillation, performance condition, and on and on…
It can be confusing and overwhelming to even try to understand all of these metrics much less improve them.
Today I want to take a look at a few key metrics and explain what they mean and how you might be able to improve them.
The 3 key metrics you want to pay attention to as a runner are: VO2 max, lactate threshold, and running economy.
I’ll explain what each of these is, how they affect you as an endurance athlete, and what you can do to improve them.
