It’s easy to measure and control frequency, volume and duration in a distance-based coaching relationship. You simply follow the instructions on your training schedule and wear a sports watch while you train.
Measuring and controlling intensity is a little trickier. How do you know how hard or easy to go while training? By using a heart rate monitor. Heart rate monitors are an effective and inexpensive way to measure and control intensity. As part of your Mid-Atlantic Multisport training program, you will receive instruction on how to use a heart rate monitor plus specific heart rate zones for each training session so you can be sure you are working at the proper intensity each day.
