Polar Vantage V | How Emma Pallant trains with data


Morning! I think the sun came up earlier this morning. Our bodies are so interesting and there’s
so much we have to learn and to explore. I’d say I’m definitely better at the training
side of things than the recovery side. If you know it’s a weakness that you have
that’s where I tap into external things. Using my coach, she knows me very well
just not as an athlete but also as a person. If I may be a little bit more grouchy she’ll definitely start looking at
how much training I’m doing. And just knows my mood, so she’s better
at that kind of subjective measurement. And then there’s the objective measurement. So I would rather look at the data. Then there’s a black and white
sign that you can’t argue with. Whereas the face in the mirror,
I think you can argue a lot more with. Often in the biggest, most key harder sessions the trick is to turn off the brain and just put
the maximum amount of stress through the body. And the only way to recover from
that is switching off the body and the easiest way I find to do that
is have the brain stimulation. Kind of one of those people that
can just go in front of the TV and switch off and just totally relax. I want to be doing something with my mind. And talking about the recovery, the more balance you can have,
the healthier you’re going to be. If we can do things like using the data,
monitoring everything we’re doing and have that concrete evidence to back those
moments where everything does go right; so the feelings, the cues, everything
you’re doing along with the data, I think they are a super powerful combination.
