A thought and/or feature request that came about as I was looking through some of my data yesterday:
- some way to summarize/compare training periods year over year
example use: compare months/seasons to each other in terms of hours trained, percentage in zone, and then change in FTP over those periods.
I remember using something like this when I was playing around in Golden Cheetah last year, but I dropped use of that program (and TrainingPeaks) and only use the TR calendar now - I need simplicity in my life and maintaining 3 calendars was not simple.
In my training case, I had been thinking that my training hours in January were well down YoY, but then noticed on the sidebar in Strava that I’m only ~90min down cumulative YoY. The likely key difference in fitness is what I carried into the start of the base block (lower than previous year) and the later start (Dec. 1 start vs. Nov. 1 start).
I was wondering about the “how I trained portion” and considered starting to pull time in zones into a spreadsheet, but then I started wondering why I couldn’t quickly do some analytics on my core calendar versus starting to pull together a manual spreadsheet and figure I’d check in here.
Not sure if this is something that others have an interest in, but thought I’d throw this out as an idea.
Cheers and thanks for giving me the tools to make me faster (even if I’m not using them as consistently as I should be!)
