|My photoshop skillz are second only to my running style|
As a rule, triathletes are data and gadget freaks - and I am no exception. In the pool, you can usually spot a triathlete by the selection of "toys" they bring down; on the bike cyclists despair at our covering our beautiful machines in power meters and storage boxes; and I feel the run revolution is just getting going. Garmin's Run Dynamics (now a proper ANT+ profile) and Stryd's power measurement are well known - I had the opportunity to try out SHFT.run's two-pod system and report my experiences from my first few runs here.

In Part 3's exploration of mathematical thresholds we were looking at methods of approximating a rider's power curve, which allows us to estimate maximal power for a given duration. However, that's rarely how we ride (or run, except on the flattest courses). The models discussed assume that an athlete stays at precisely the same power for the duration of their effort, but in the real world only TTers even come close. So this post will look at ways of dealing with variation.
