Our ever ongoing conversation with coaches brought our attention to the topic that the core problem of training data management is BAD MEMORY – people simply forget to log or plan their training in time. Therefore, Sportlyzer’s task is not to only provide sports teams with a platform for training data management, but also to help them not to forget their daily duties around it.

Some Sportlyzer users prefer to set the limits of heart rate zones in their heart rate monitor and type in the time spent in zones while logging their training. We have added some tricks to make it as smooth as possible.

Training intensity is a critical factor for successful training plans. Training too much at high intensities compared to aerobic trainings can lead to accumulation of training stress and overtraining. Tracking of training intensity is easy if you have a heart rate monitor and it works. But what will you do if you forget it at home, the battery runs out, or you just don’t have one yet? Is there an alternative?

We couldn’t be happier to announce that we just launched visualized training cycles. Now you can see your progress through your training cycles and get explanations what kind of trainings really matter during different parts of your preparation. There is also a small teaser in the pic below about what’s coming next .
This is another step towards our vision that it’s not just the race that matters, but every training, every week, every cycle is a small goal that helps understand why and how to train.
Sporltyzer’s sports scientist Jarek Mäestu wrote a great article about preparing for races where he also explains the theory behind Sportlyzer’s algorithms. The article was published in Runaddicts blog and we think it’s a must read for all endurance enthusiasts.
