Technology in Triathlon Training

The first long distance runners were astonishing. Dave Scott and Mark Allen finished stunning accomplishments in triathlon well before technology assumed control over the game. They didn’t have measurements like we have today and they unquestionably didn’t have the greater part of the data gathering capacities we have. However, they set records and contended valiantly. Actually Mark Allen still holds the marathon record in Kona right up ’til today. Technology is an awesome companion to marathon runners however is has a drawback.


So technology has assumed control over all aspects of triathlon. A standout amongst the most generally inquired about regions is the zone of the triathlon watch. Every last year there are new watches accessible for buy that have regularly expanding estimations for the long distance runner. My undisputed top choice is the Garmin 910XT. This watch gives me heart rate, control (with a power meter), pacing (with discretionary foot unit), speed, rhythm (with discretionary rhythm sensor), mileage, yards in swimming, and significantly more. Each of these estimations help me in measuring my prosperity or disappointments in every single training session and race.

Technology has been making colossal walks in bikes and wheel sets. The measure of research going into these two things inside the universe of triathlon is mind blowing. Every last year there are new and energizing advances in streamlined speed in bikes and wheel sets. A great part of the time these advances can go up against two altogether different vantage focuses. This was most obvious at the 2016 World Championships in Kona. Jewel Bikes disclosed their Andean bicycle which fills in all the space in the middle of the front tire and the back tire with a strong piece to influence the breeze to go by this region for streamlined features. Another bicycle appeared at Kona this year with the correct inverse thought. The Ventum bicycle wiped out the down container of the bicycle and made an empty space in the middle of the front tire and the back tire with just the best tube remaining. These are two altogether different thoughts regarding optimal design. This is an astounding aspect concerning the headway of technology and one of the drawbacks also.

Every single bit of hardware in triathlon is experiencing consistent technology progressions. Shoes, wetsuits, socks, sustenance, caps, shades, head protectors, hustling units, and whatever else you can envision. This universe of technology in triathlon isn’t close to fruition and will keep on pushing the points of confinement.


Technology in triathlon is astonishing. These new things are energizing and make every last year extraordinary. There are new progressions that assistance marathon runners go speedier and more. These new advancements assist even the novice long distance runner to go speedier. Simply the buy of new wheels can mean the contrast between being on or off the platform. The headway of shoes has supported numerous competitors to maintain a strategic distance from the wounds that torment such huge numbers of, for example, plantar fasciitis. Technology will keep on aiding the game in winding up better and better.


The drawback to technology is that the novice marathon runner touches base at their nearby race officially unequipped for winning since another person has the cash to get a portion of the most recent technology. The greatest buys, for example, wheel sets and bikes can be taken a toll restrictive to the normal marathon runner but there are people who buy these things at disturbing rates. The beginner long distance runner can likewise feel overpowered at what to buy and what not to buy. A few things of technology are not worth the additional cost since they don’t diminish hustling time fundamentally enough for what they cost. Since these new advancements have been out momentarily, thump offs have started to influence lower to cost things. It will enthusiasm to watch the surge of these thump offs into the market and perceive how that influences the enormous young men of technology.
