Get Your Geek On! Accuracy, Precision, and Resolution: What’s the Difference?

Oftentimes, the words accuracy, precision, and resolution are often mixed up or misused altogether. While this is forgivable in day to day use, it is taboo when it comes to science or engineering topics. Let’s differentiate the three and discuss their implication in sports science (i.e. lactate testing).

Are You On Track?

With less than 7 weeks left before Cobra Ironman 70.3 Cebu, the most important thing on the agenda right now is to practice your specific race pace. Race pace effort should not be confused with a hard time trial effort as the name might suggest; rather, this is the highest intensity that you can sustain for the 1.9km swim, 90km bike, and 21km run.
