Abstract

Fast development of mobile ICT technologies has enabled and imposed their implementation in many business, private and sport areas. As mobile technologies enable quick and two-way communication, independent of the present location of an athlete, their trainer or expert hardware and software systems, it is of the significant importance to utilize the advantages of that kind of communication in order to maximize the chances of achieving excellent results in a specific training process or in a key race. In this paper is shown one ORT (Online Running Trainer) system, which was developed for preparations of long-distance runners. It describes a new algorithm for calculation of training equivalents of set and achieved trainings, which was used for the success analysis of every micro cycle of the training process. By using all available telecommunication channels, ORT system communicates with its users in real time. Moreover, it analyses their performance and, if necessary, dynamically corrects their training parameters in order for them to achieve better results in needed moment. Described methods and procedures are verified on a selected sample of marathon runners.
