We use BF calculations in order to balance your training load and avoid overtraining.
The Boost Factor (BF) indicates how hard the training is, and how much time is needed to recover before further training. BF is based on research on how to calculate training load, and the value is much more precise to use for load balancing than just counting the distance.
BF depends on distance, intensity and your personal running speeds. We count this into every detail and accumulate it into a total value per training trip and per week. Every time your plan is adjusted, we use the Boost Factor calculations to make sure you are still training effectively.
