All endurance sports demand some combination of three components: 1) High oxygen transport capacity, 2) High fatigue resistance in working muscles, and 3) High efficiency of transfer of physiological work to mechanical movement. Every endurance athlete brings to the starting line some combination of Performance Power (1 and 2). The third variable, Efficiency of Power Transfer (3) links the engine to the specific movement task. These variables combine to determine Potential Performance Velocity. Finally, on a given race day, performance potential is influenced by psychological factors and the accuracy of pacing. The end product is
