Garmin ROUTE uploading is a separate feature.
The Beginner Triathlete training log will upload your workouts from:
Where to upload your workouts
Go to 'Training Log' and click on the 'Upload' link in the black training log navigation bar.
You will be able to choose the device to upload.
Specifically for the Garmin devices, you will be able to choose more than one workout*Make sure your workout is recorded in the correct sport.
1- Garmin software updatesYou need to have the latest Garmin software on your device and your computer. The best way to handle this is with the Garmin WebUpdater. Please install this and run it on your computer before using the workout uploader. Even if you bought your Garmin recently. The software it came with might not be the latest and this requires the latest.2- Smart recordingMake sure your Garmin device is set to Smart Recording, otherwise the data files will almost certainly be too big to work with this feature.3- Stored workout limitations
If you have a lot of workouts stored on your device, the upload process may take a while. This was designed to upload only the data absolutely required, but if you have 6 months worth of workouts on your device and the upload process seems slow, you should look at deleting some workouts from the device.
4 - Correct workout types
Your Garmin needs to be set to the correct type of activity (running or cycling) and imported into the same type. The importer won't find a running activity if you import into the cycling log.
*We designed this to be efficient and quick. Pulling off the whole workout history and working with it in the browser, or uploading it to the server could get problematic and/or slow if there are a lot of other sport workouts or a bunch of long workouts to go through.
You can access your Polar .hrm files by following these instructions.
You will need to download the Timex Device Agent first to generate .pwx files.
.PWX files will be located in:
Vista or Windows 7: C:\Users\[Windows user]\TrainingPeaks\Device Agent\saved\[username]
XP or earlier: C:\Documents and Settings\[Windows user]\My Documents\TrainingPeaks\Device Agent\saved\[username]
Heart rate zone setupIf you want your time spent in your heart-rate zone, you MUST have your zones setup in your training log. See instructions.
The Heart Rate zone totals won't exactly match those in Training Center or MotionBased.
This does not mean they're incorrect. It means we use a slightly different means of calculating the time in Zones. We're confident about the way we calculate this. The times are actually similar. Actually, if you check, TC and MB don't match each other and MB is owned by Garmin. *Also, the HR Zone data is based on how your zones are defined on BT. How they're defined on your device is ignored.
**Active hr zone in your training log needs to be in the format 'xx - yy' and not '>120' or '185+'.
NOTE, HR data graphs are a Performance Member feature though the data is recorded.
Lap DataLap Data has to exist on the device for it to be transferred to the training log. When importing a workout that contains data for more than one lap, the following data is imported into the workout Comments for each lap: duration, distance, pace, Max HR, Avg HR.
You need to have >1 lap for the lap logging to work.
NOTE, Lap data graphs are a Performance Member feature, though the data will be recorded.
We've had help from some great people who put a lot of effort into testing this. They found a lot of things I wouldn't have and were very generous with their time and effort.PLEASE POST ALL QUESTIONS IN THE TRAINING LOG FORUMS
