interval name question (Read 410 times)


Maggie & Molly

    Hi,  I sometimes use my garmin to record a walk but when I change the default from run to walk it then won't save without my naming my "interval sets".  I've been naming it just so I can save but I am not sure why it is doing this in the first place.  Any help would be appreciated.

            hahaha but my question really is why is it asking me that in the first place.  I wasn't doing intervals.

              When I import from my garmin, it defaults to GPS Interval (or something like that).  Probably because I have auto-lap set to record every mile.  Because of that, the system thinks I am doing some form of interval.

                Interval sets are created for anything with a GPS record attached to it--it doesn't imply a type of workout.

                 

                If you want it to stop asking you for them, go to Options --> Manage My Activities --> Edit your "Walk" workout.  If you add a new interval set, I think it'll default to that and quit asking you each time, though.

                 

                Hope that helps!

Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

                  The interval set is primarily for run entries.  When you do an intervals workout, the workout type would be set to "Intervals".  Intervals describes a wide range of workouts, such as:

                  - 12 x 400m

                  - 4 x 1000m

                  - 50 x 100m

                   

                  Searching for all run entries that are "intervals" will return all of these workouts.  By specifying a name for the interval set, such as "4 x 1000m", you can then look for all 4 x 1000m intervals.

                   

                  RA is a running log.  It allows you to log other activities by reusing the same form for running.  The interval set name is an artifact of the reuse.  When I get around to redoing the workout entry form, I'll remedy this issue.
