Runalyze Annual Review – 2022 in Numbers

, Posted in General

Our system works around the clock. Last year, a total of 65,600,000,000 seconds of training data were processed and analyzed. Of this, just over half of the activities were running data. But other sports are also becoming more and more popular. We have gathered this information and more in our 2022 Annual Review.

The Effective VO2max is probably the most interesting, but also the most controversial metric in Runalyze for runners. We are sure: With a little fine tuning, the value (as long as reliable training data is available) is helpful for everyone. There is a clear trend towards two seasonal peaks in spring and fall – of course also due to the fact that the particularly cold or hot temperatures can get to you in winter and summer.
