Been learning a bit of data science/machine learning and thought wouldn’t it be cool to have the integration between wearables and training plan adjustments. This has definitely been the biggest unknown for me – when I wake up feeling a bit off, without a coach how do I decide if I’m ready for that big session.
More importantly, even if I can do it (just because I can, doesn’t mean I should right?) will I get the intended benefit or will I confine myself to the bed?
I’ve been observing this disconnect between data collection companies (apple watch, garmin, strava) and training providers (TR, coaches). Wouldn’t it be neat to feed your biometrics into a machine learning platform that could give you a predictive answer on whether you should keep training on that day or better off with one day off?
I understand that this takes the “human” out of training, which to be honest I am quite fond of anyways. But for data geeks/scientists/machine learning professionals out there – wouldn’t this be a great thing to build? (instead of relying on human judgement, which is inherently flawed…)
