humidity field (Read 988 times)

    And for that matter what are you going to do with the info? Prove that running sucks when the dew point is 73? File under "duh."

     

    Come on mikey -- you log the temperature! The dewpoint is at least as relevant as the temp, if not more.

     

    Of course I just use the notes field for everything, like srlopez.

      Yeah but I don't know WHY I log the temperature. I've stopped logging time of day so...baby steps.

          Depends what kind of logging to which you are referring, but yeah, I'll bet he is.

           

            I haven't added any new fields to the workout editor because it's already very daunting to new users and runners.  As I hinted in other posts, I'll be revamping the training log this fall, which would allow me to simplify the workout editor while allowing me to add more data fields.  Once that work is done, I'll consider which fields to add.

             

            In the meantime, what's the consensus?  Dew point or humidity?  I can see argument for either, but please don't make me add both.

              Neither is important to me. 

               

                I made the humidity as a checkbox because it's somewhat subjective.  While temperature is easy to obtain, dew point/humidity are not unless you have the proper instruments.  If I change the humidity check box to a number field, then that would prevent many people that can't obtain the number.

                  I also vote neither. I'm in the process of weaning myself off of obsessively recording useless data that I'll never use for anything in my running log. It's a process and I'm taking it one day at a time but the less temptation the better.

                    Neither for me as well.  If I really feel that is necessary to log the humidity I just write "It was muggy as #^^$@" in the notes field.

                      Neither.

                       

                      But if you do add one, I vote for dew point.

                        I vote for making the humidity a checkbox.

                        If you MUST add a field, dewpoint dewpoint dewpoint.

                          Me thinks he already added it,,,,,,,,so no vote

                                Humid checkbox (as is), and +1 for simplicity, maybe with a hidden section for all the fancy stuff.  Or maybe a customizable entry form.

                                Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
