Steve Dean

Steve Dean has been doing triathlons for about 10 years on and off with varying consistency. 2007 was his most active year and he did a lot of self-tracking--which was when he was first introduced to Quantifed Self. He now runs the Quantifed Self group in New York. His last race was in 2012 and it was about 6 1/2 hours long. The last two years, he was racing a lot so he wanted to do something different and ran a QS experiment called Project Faster in sensing, measuring and tracking watts to increase his cycling power output. He ran the experiment for six months. In this talk, he discusses his experiment and what he learned.
