Profiles of pain

I was just looking at some of my Garmin training logs and they look quite interesting, I'd like to call them profiles of pain.....

There's some obsession with these graphs, especially when you come home after some particularly hard training session - just having a quick peak at the profile before hitting the shower.... ;)

For example:

3 x 15 min threshold - easily visible

Can you see what I did here?

Graphs generated with SportTracks application.

I love sportstracks and playing with the graphs! Everyone says I am geeky but hey it's fun!

If you are using a Mac, give Ascent (from montebello software) a go. It has a really easy to use interface and makes even prettier graphs.

I just want them to add power to it now too...

No on a PC.

Are you over at Drumlanrig next weekend for the NPS? I rode SSUK there this weekend and the riding is amazing!

Cool, yes, I will be at the NPS - will you? Do they use the same tracks? What's it like? Very technical?

trio25 said...

No I'm nowhere near fast enough for something like that!!!

I imagine they will use some of the same trails, they were really technical. Lots of routes and very tight singletrack which I'm not used to at all! But we had hardly any fireroad which is always good.

I'm looking forward to the race report on your blog.
