What is my Training Age?

Your "age" is one of the key factors in how you are likely to respond to different training.  Your training plan uses three different "ages":  Age, Sport Age, Training Age.

Age - This is your normal age--how old you are.

Sport Age - This is how long you've been training in a particular discipline.

Training Age - This is your 'functional' training age calculated by subtracting a portion of your Sport Age from your normal Age.  i.e.  A 45-year-old person with a Sport Age of 15 years can handle more training than a 45-year-old who is new to training.  This 45-year-old may have a Training Age of 38.

The impact of Sport Age diminishes as your Sport Age and normal Age increase.
