StravistiX…This is pretty cool.

I’m just getting going on this, but I think I am going to make it a part of my data routine.  I’ve plugged in all the workouts that I’ve done over the past couple of weeks and I’m starting to see the utility of doing this.

Here’s my “form graph”.

So, this says that I am in overload, which I guess is about right.  I need to make sure that all my training gets into Strava.

This should be interesting to watch with the Marathon training plan.

    Agree – TRIMP is new to me as well and I agree its very cool – i’m looking forward to trying to plug power data into it as well once I have my power meter up and running as well as it promises a more accurate training zones than HR – but even HR is interesting to track

    As Sander says – you don’t currently have enough data to say whether you are overtraining or not – in my Strava I started logging data end of August and judging from the amount of overtraining it was spitting out through september and early october i should be suffering from serious overtraining at the moment! 🙂 Once you have enough data for your fitness line to stabilize is when you can start making conclusions.

    What really stood out for me when I looked back at my data was twofold really –
    1) checking the dates of the races I had done last year it was very interesting to see compare my own personal assessment of the result of the race with what my TRIMP was suggesting at the time – for example HOCR had gone well and that showed I was peaking fitness and my form was just outside of the race ready setting (maybe I could’ve done even better with a better taper?) where as some other races I had done I had clearly had a fitness blip or was carrying too much fatigue from training

    2) Since Jan 1st I have gone back to the Rojabo training plan – partly for a change but also because I have less time to train than I did and the shorter/sharper workouts fit in better – what I find interesting is so far the slowly increasing workout loads that Rojabo are giving me are closely following my fitness line without pushing me into over training – suggesting its pretty effective training
