Hi @ All,

I want to renew the training plan feature request, respectively give some ideas for this feature ;-)

Today I have found a program called "BikeXperience" (http://www.bikexperience.de). You can run it on Linux too. For me this program is in the whole not usable because there is no srd-file support...and its not open source. But it has a nice feature for planning your training.

BikeXperience plans your training by setting the amount of kilometers per year automatically. I personally don't like this automatic plan, because its not very individual, but I like the way the result looks like.

You can see (diagram or table) the total amount of kilometers and time per week including the heartrate zones.

I personally would like to manually set the amount of time I want to spend at a special heartrate level per week (kilometers are not useful for planning - important is the time you spend at a special heartrate level). The plan could be displayed in a short way within the weekly summary in the calender. Additionally a target/actual comparison would be helpful.

I know there are actually no heartrate zones but in future at least 4, better 5 zones will be useful.

Thanks a lot for this great program :-)
Greetings,
Tim

    Hi Tim,

    thanks for the link to the BikeXperience software. It's a very interesting application. Unfortunately it's not open source and the user interface is quite complex.
    Anyway, it could become quite helpfull when we going to start adding tranining support.

    Bye,
    Stefan
