How to import history into RunningAhead (Read 137 times)

Harbourboy


    Hi. Sorry if this is an easy question but I've looked through several pages of posts and the guidance on the site and I still can't figure out whether it's possible to do a bulk upload of my historical information into RunningAhead.

     

    My several years of history are currently sitting in:

    Garmin Training Centre

    Garmin Connect

    Smashrun

    Strava

    An Excel training log

     

    can someone please let me know if there is a way of bulk uploading this, rather than one entry at a time?

     

    thanks

      Go to Training Log -> Tools -> Importing Training Data to RunningAhead

       

      Of course you have to export them from the other services (GarminConnect, Strava, etc) to your computer first before they can be imported.  Some of them will only export one at a time.  Once you have the files, you should create a zip archive for each source.  Eric's importers will break the zip file into individual files for you.

        If I understand you correctly, does this mean I would need to individually export over 1,000 files in order to import the last three years data?

          For import you can select multiple files now instead of one at a time Smile

            Hi Harbourboy,

            It depends on where your data is.  If all your workouts are in Garmin Training Center, then all you need to do is export the workouts as a TCX file and import it into RA.  If your data is scattered across multiple services, then it depends on whether these services allow you to export your data in bulk.

              Before the garmin connect/RA connection, i was using https://tapiriik.com to sync my stuff (i was able to sync 4 months worth without major difficulty). Don't know if that helps, but it might.

                Brilliant.  Thanks for the help.  That seemed to work pretty well, although initially it didn't look like anything was happening.  I guess it took a while to wor through that file of 5 years worth of data.

                  Glad it worked!  It's a funky little site but gets the job done when no other will

                    So I think I accidentially uploaded all my data twice... Is there a way to delete it and reload?
