Is there any way to see my speed or pace zones for an activity recorded using a Garmin (forerunner or edge, I'm training for triathlon and use both)? Something like a chart or a table detailing how much time I've spent in pace zones within an activity? Like: 2mi at 5 min/mi, 3 mi at 5:30, etc.
There is a similar table in the garmin training center, but it's hard to read and based on configured speed zones. That does not help if you train for speed one day and endurance the next day, or if you do hills etc. I need something that can sort of configure itself based on the given activity (I don't want to configure software every time).
Garmin connect seems to lack this feature entirely. There is a report but it seems to me that is based on historical data, like how much time I've spent on a speed zone in the last week. That might be useful for monitoring your load but I'm more interested in analyzing my performance on an activity basis.
There are like a gazillion applications for garmin but the ones I've tried all look alike: a diary, a map, a few basic charts, some basic reports. They seem to cater more to the recreational runner looking for a community of peers than to someone who's actually interested in analyzing his performance.
I tend to agree, most apps look alike, and show very little data. I had a problem with calories time ago, so I asked in this forum and got a suggestion for a very different app, the sportietech studio:
thank you so much! It's exactly what I was looking for, and more!
I thought I knew most apps but I had never heard of sportietech, perhaps because they're still in alpha. You're right, it's a bit rough, but all those polished apps I've tried show just a small fraction of the data I've found on sportietech. Let's hope they keep it up (and keep it free!)
