Adjust splits in online logbook

Post by carlosr » January 9th, 2019, 8:25 pm

Allow to change the splits distance (or total splits) for an existing workout in the online logbook. Since the per stroke data is there this shouldn’t be too hard (at least a close enough approximation).

You can sign on to your log book page, and make any changes that you wish.

How? I don't see anyway to make the change you suggest for rows that are uploaded from ErgData. I can download the data and write a simple program to calculate a different number of splits but I don't see a way to do that from the online logbook itself.

There's an edit icon at the end of each workout line in the online logbook.

I just looked at your log (from link in your signature). Looks like you are entering your workout manually via web interface. If you do that, sure you can edit them, however you only get to make a single entry for the workout. I am using the ErgData app on my phone to connect to the PM5 which makes the logbook entries for me. Not just that, it also sends the per stroke data and provides graphs for the workout. Check my logbook to see what I mean (ignore the short cool down entries).

To understand what I am after, take a look at one of my 10k entries. You will see a "Splits" section with a chart showing 5 splits every 2k meters. That is the default. I would like to be able to tell it to calculate 10 splits for example. Granted I could set up the PM5 to do 1k splits for the 10k workout ahead of time and that is what would be displayed in my logbook (I think. I have not tried) but as I said before, the detail for each stroke is there (as you can see from the graph next to the splits) so they should be able to recalculate the Splits chart from that data.

The ErgData FAQ page says it is compatible with the SkiErg. You may want to give that a try.

It can't be done. The splits are set by the PM5 and can't be changed after the workout is finished.

Why can't it be recalculated from the stroke data? Here is a sampling of a CSV download available from the logbook:

Code: Select all

Number	Time (seconds)	Distance (meters)	Pace (seconds)	Watts	Cal/Hr	Stroke Rate	Heart Rate
1	0.8	2.6	161.6	83	585	0	85
2	3.4	11.3	161.6	83	585	0	84
3	6.5	22.1	145.2	114	693	22	84
4	9	30.9	145.2	114	693	22	89
5	11.6	40	143.1	119	710	24	94
6	14.2	49.5	143.1	119	710	24	94
7	16.8	59.3	135.6	140	782	22	94
8	19.4	69.2	131.9	153	824	24	94
9	21.9	79	130.5	157	841	23	94
10	24.5	89	131	156	835	23	94
11	27.1	99.2	128.7	164	864	23	95
12	30.2	111.6	127.6	168	879	22	102
13	32.8	121.8	125.5	177	909	22	102
Obviously the meters are not perfectly aligned with the interval distances (or time for time based workouts) but it should not be hard to do a good enough approximation. Could probably even do it browser client side in javascript to avoid burdening the server.
