The environmental performance analysis allows you to identify the real value of each of your running activities..
The vertical drop you face and the atmospheric conditions affect the average pace to a variable extent and depending on your level of acclimatization .
A high level of acclimatization indicates that the run you performed was carried out in conditions of climatic stress comparable to that detected in the course of previous activities. High acclimatization levels positively affect performance and general well-being , while very low acclimatization levels can negatively affect it.
If the performance you completed was performed at maximum intensity the absolute performance is an estimation of your athletic potential over that distance simulating a run on a perfectly flat course, at the altitude of sea level and in ideal climatic conditions.
If the activity you performed was carried out with a light or moderate effort , the absolute performance indicates the actual load of the activity on your body. p>
In the case of high vertical drops, normalization on a meteorological basis can be less accurate due to the microclimatic peculiarities of the crossed environments.
