Site unable to load workouts in TCX compressed ZIP format (Read 23 times)


    Hello Team,


    I tried to upload my workouts on the TCX format (each file is compressed using ZIP) and the site allows me to upload the workout but they never show up when I click on the 'Imported Workouts' button.


    Has anyone else experience this issue? The uncompressed TCX files look well (properly formed XML) and I can uncompressed the files (just to make sure the .zip file is not corrupted).


    Total size for the upload is 15M.


    I had no issues uploading several workouts at the same time in the GPX format.


    Should I convert the TCX workouts to GPX?


    Thanks in advance,




      Update: I decided to convert the TCX files to GPX using the following tool: http://jwhgt.worldwidehome.de/


      Then used it like this (also compressed the resulting files to .zip format. I'm running this on a Linux terminal):


      for file in $(ls *.tcx); do

        new_file=$(echo $file| sed 's#.tcx#.gpx#g');

        java -jar JWHGT/JWHGT.jar -con -exsd hrec -ifhf tcx -ifhrm "$file" -off gpx -of "$new_file";

        zip "$new_file".zip "$new_file"



      The upload works but the site fails silently again importing the files on the new format.

        Interesting. I don't have a specific solution for you -- but as information to help you find the problem:


        1. I was able to upload a single TCX file in native format, that is, uncompressed. No errors. The RunningAhead importer processed the file.


        2. I was able to upload a ZIP of multiple TCX files and the RunningAhead importer extracted the files and they were available for import as individual workouts.


        In my #2 test -- I used 3 files, so I didn't test at the scale it seems you're may be working.

          Something is off. I tried a single uncompressed file, didn't work. Also put all the TCX files inside a zip and no luck either. Without a log on the server I cannot tell why the importer doesn't like the files.


          Anyways, thanks for the help.

            Reads to me that your TCX files aren't valid for some reason...but that's speculation on my part.


            Just to confirm...the 'click path' I used was:


            Main page (...runningahead.com/forums) > click on inbox icon in main title bar, 3rd icon on right (...runningahead.com/logs/{guid}/tools/import)  > browse > [select file from file system] > upload > data importer then generates dialog:


            Your data has been transferred to the server and is being processed. It will take a couple of minutes before your data becomes available. You can leave this page to browse your log or the forums as you wait. A message bar will appear at the top of the page when the data is ready.


            > uploaded file count appears in import inbox in main title bar > click import inbox (or  training log > tools > upload from file (tab) ) > click save (disk) icon on imported workout.
