Workout type pie chart (Read 86 times)

    It would be great to be able to pie chart workout type. If so, I'd consolidate my workout types into Race, Fast, Medium, and Slow, and then I could see the distribution.

     

    Thanks

        Now I'm really curious - you've left me hanging.

            This sounds fairly simple, but IMO it changes quite a bit depending on what the runner is training for. Someone just running for general fitness will have different priorities than someone trying to maximize performance. A person who runs 5ks will do much different training than one who does marathons or ultra marathons. Someone early in their buildup will have different priorities than a person getting close to a goal race. Age can also play a big role, as older runners usually need more recovery from hard workouts than younger runners.

             

            The rule of thumb is run mostly easy. Add long runs and faster runs as needed. Stir in interval or track workouts, strides, hills, etc as needed. A coach could take a lot more details about you like what your goals and background are and help you build a plan that would help you get there. There are lots of books by tons of authors on how to get there. (Daniels, Hanson, Magness, McMillan, Lydiard, etc, etc.)

             

            Hope that helps...
