Understanding a Marathoner’s Running Power via Stryd Data

We analyze Patrick Smyth's power data collected via the Stryd power meter device he wore during the NYC Marathon.

Patrick Smyth placed 10th in the New York City Marathon on Nov. 6 in a time of 2:16:34. During the race, he wore a Stryd power meter foot pod which provided data that measured his power, pacing and fatigue. You can see in the gallery of slides and images below, Smyth’s information from Stryd. For more insights, we asked his coach Ryan Bolton—the founder and head coach of Bolton Endurance Sports Training (B.E.S.T.) and The Harambee Project elite training group in Santa Fe, N.M.—to analyze Smyth’s power data.
