I like this tool. The last 5 days, I’ve been going much easier and 9t shows in the reduction of my fatigue level (the grey area). It also shows that my fitness is plateaued. I think that has more to do with 6 rest days over the past 11 days. I think if I can maintain 6 easy, 60-80 minute sessions a week, I will keep fatigue in check and make steady improvement in endurance. That’s a good thing to do if I’m gonna row more than 20 miles in a race in July.

Yes im finding it a useful tool myself as well – not just for tracking fitness but also helping ease my concern when I miss sessions/have to cut sessions short for whatever reason – previously I would beat myself up about it but now I can see that the effect is usually minimal and I can recover quickly.
Downside’s would be although its good at matching “efforts” for workouts that are different (i.e. 60′ at 20 spm vs 10 x 30″ sprints) its not good at showing your race preperation – by that I mean im sure I could reach a value (i.e. 60) by doing very different workouts (long and slow vs short and fast) and yet if I had only done long and slow I wouldnt be as ready for a spring regatta than a head race for example – but it is a useful tool
