>Suggestions and Feature Requests>Graph 7 and 30 day rolling totals by day
I was using an excel spreadsheet before I found RunningAHEAD. One of the features I loved about the spreadsheet was that it provided a graph of 7 and 30 day rolling totals. This was an excellent tool to evaluate running consistency over time.
If this option is already available, I apologize. I cannot find out how to create the graph using the tools provided.
I'm pretty sure this isn't possible given the built-in charting tools that RA offers. I agree it would be a nice option to complement those already available.
[I'm assuming you're already aware that you can export your data to Excel and hence generate your graph that way, although I appreciate that's a manual process you won't want to do every day.]
Totals are provided in the basic summary page (check out my log for that) for rolling seven and 30 days totals.
Check out my reports for examples of rolling 7 and 30 day runs.
To do this, simply go to Reports in your log. Hit "new graph." Set the time span to 7 or 30 days, then "save as." It will stay in your reports.
You can add this to your main log page with the "Activity Graph" widget.
"When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem." Emil Zatopek
I may be misinterpreting the OP's requirement, but I think what they wanted was a graph of the rolling total mileage completed in the last N days.
For example, if I've been running 5 miles a day for the last year, the graph would be flat at 150 miles - the total miles I've run in the last 30 days is constant at 150. If I now step it up to 6 miles a day, the graph will slowly climb from 150 until, in 30 days' time, it hits 180.
I may be misinterpreting, too, then, as isn't that done numerically by "Rolling Run Totals"? How would a graph of a single number be any different?
I'm not trying to be a smart ass, I just honestly don't know .
You're right, it's exactly the same number as the 'Rolling Run Totals' you (and I) have displayed on our training log summary pages. I think what the OP is after is a graph showing how that number has varied over time - i.e. a graph showing how the '30 day rolling total' figure from his training log has changed over the last month, or 3 years, or whatever, day by day. It would give a good, somewhat smoothed, view over how his mileage has developed over time.
How about something like a graph of Last (However Many) Years with X-Axis set to either Week or Month, like this?
(I know this is not QUITE the same thing, and I suppose I should wait for OP to chime in. But all my students are at a field trip, so I have nothing better to do.)
Heh. I agree that what you're showing there is the closest thing that can be done with the available tools, but I suspect the OP is aware of that option. I think he's going to have to resort to Excel for now...
I think NICKP has a pretty good understanding of what I am looking for. I would like to take 7 and 30 day rolling totals from each day and create a graph throughout time. This graph would provide real-time trending data of my mileage. I can look at it each day and know exactly where I am in comparison to the last 7 or 30 days.
This is very useful for the 30 day trends; if you miss some time due to illness or injury this graph provides some insight into the mileage you still have "banked."
