TNM is excited to announce that long-time TNM Ironman and Xterra athlete John Strayer will be on board the staff now as our “power specialist”. He has spent countless hours studying power data and has attended several clinics and seminars on the topic of power.
John will be leading various clinics and will also be available for personal consultations. His first clinic is about “getting started”. How to use your cylcops joule and garmin with your powertap and how to interpret the basic data once downloaded. He will also give you some inside tips on training and racing with your powertap, and maybe even share with you “what the coaches see”.
With added data comes a lot more knowledge to be learned!
This is GREAT for everyone currently training with power and for those thinking of training with power in the upcoming seasons.
Sign-ups for TNM members will be up on the class calendar by this weekend.
Location: TNM facility at 911 Western Ave suite 506
Date: Friday March 11
TNM is excited that more and more athletes are choosing to race and train with power. With this added element of data much more information is provided to the athlete and coach on how the athlete is progressing. We feel lucky to have John on board to help decipher and understand such data to make it usable knowledge.
Knowledge is POWER!
John grew up in Ohio playing soccer but switched his pursuit to academics to earn his BS in Biochemistry with a minor in Mechanical Engineering and Medical Degree from Ohio State University. In 1998, after completing his residency in Emergency Medicine, he moved to Seattle to work and enjoy the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest. He has been an avid cyclist for years, and on a challenge from a friend, he entered his first triathlon in 2007.
His main interest is the use of current technology such as the power meters and GPS devices to optimize training and performance. John has been using power meters for 8 years and has experience analyzing power data files using software such as WKO+, Power Agent, Garmin Training Center, and TrainingPeaks.
John feels that “Technology that was once limited to the professional ranks has now become available to all level of athletes. The key is to know how to use this technology to maximize your time and energy to achieve your goals. ”
