I have been always looking for different statistics about Ironman races and Triathletes, however there are almost none to be found on internet. Our company Instarea is focused on Data Monetization, we work a lot with data, in most cases with annonymized and aggregated data of Telco operators, digging out of them different insights about population, e.g. how people move between cities, to which countries they travel and so on. As we have the skills, and as we are passionate triathletes, we have decided to create a side project in the company, and together with our Data Scientist Tomas Repík


I just made it under 5 hrs, and I have never thought it possible.

First of all I’m not certified trainer :), so I’m only sharing my experience from the amateur endurance sporting I do. I want to make it easy for you to understand the topic of proper training intensity, as many of the articles on web are scattered or to complex to read for novice.

If you are new to endurance sports like biking, or running, triathlon, swimming, it is most important to start training with right intensity levels. It’s not good for body to run too fast, too soon and stress your muscles without proper endurance in place. On one hand…
