Gear/Equipment Tracking - 23 February 2013

  • Gear Tracking
    TitanXT now offers the ability to track the gear you use during your various workouts. Tracking your distance by gear will make sure you update equipment at the appropriate time and will allow you to compare workouts with specific equipment. You can manage information about your running shoes, bikes, etc through the "Account->Update Profile" menu item (click the "Manage Gear" button) or whenever you are entering a new workout, uploading a workout via GPS or viewing the new gear usage charts.

    You can retire old gear by marking it inactive. You can still report on inactive gear, but it won't show up in your gear choices for new workouts. You can also set default gear that will automatically be assigned to to workouts uploaded via the Titan Tracks iPhone app or the Tracks2TitanXT Android app.

  • Gear Charts
    New charts are available that show your time and distance by workout type for each piece of gear you have tracked. You can view active, inactive or all gear. It's easy now to see how many miles or kilometers you have in your running shoes or how many hours, miles or kilometers you have logged on your time trial bike or in your wetsuit.

  • GPS Heart Rate
    We also made some improvements to the handling of heart rate data uploaded via GPS. We now ignore gaps in heart rate data from your workout upload. This results in a more accurate average heart rate when your device fails to transmit data for certain periods during your workout.

    Planning workouts helps you stay motivated and focused. This TitanXT release adds a number of key enhancements to the workout planning process.

Calendar and Facebook - 30 September 2011

  • New Calendar Workout

    You may now create a new workout from the calendar view. Simply click in an empty space on the day where you want to add a workout. You will be brought to the new workout screen to enter your data. Note that if you click a day in the future you will be prompted with the standard "create workout plan" options open.

  • Update Workout Date

    If you inadvertently create a workout on the wrong day (which may happen if you are creating a workout for a past date and fail to alter the date in the create workout screen) you can now simply drag the workout in the calendar to a different day. This is also useful when you have a planned workout for a certain date and you execute the workout on a different day. For example if you had a long run planned for Sunday and you chose to do the run on Saturday instead, you can now simply drag the workout from Sunday to Saturday in the calendar view.

  • Facebook

    We have created a facebook page for TitanXT. You can now follow TitanXT on facebook and make posts to the TitanXT wall. You will find the facebook link in the footer of each page on the website.

  • Workout Time of Day

    We altered the workout time entry so now it includes 5 minute increments instead of an option for every minute. Users found the long dropdown list there to be unnecessary.

  • Workout Pace Fix

    Under certain circumstances a workout pace could show up as 8:60 instead of 9:00 minutes. This has been addressed.

The cue sheet will be available to you and anyone with whom you share the route. A compass icon Compass Icon is available when mapping a route to see the generated directions.

Workout Planning - 1 August 2011

  • Workout Planning

    TitanXT now includes workout planning!

    Now you can plan one workout, a week’s worth, a month’s worth or even a year’s worth of workouts.

    Here’s how it works. To plan a single workout just go to the menu item “Workouts->Create Workout Plan”. Select the workout date and workout type and enter a planned duration (time) and/or planned distance in the Workout Plan section. That’s it. You can add a description of your planned workout as well.

    When you are entering a completed workout you can enter what you planned to do, even if you did not create the plan ahead of the workout.

    To create a plan with multiple workouts you (or your coach) can create your plan in a spreadsheet and then you can upload it using the menu item “Workouts->Upload Workout Plan” and following the instructions on that page. You have the same option to add planned workout date, type, time, distance and description.

    Once you have completed a planned workout, simply view the planned workout in your calendar or workout list view via the menu item “Workouts->Show Workouts”. From the calendar, click on the workout to view it, then, click the edit (pencil) icon and enter your actual workout results. From the list view click the edit (pencil) icon next to the workout and enter your workout results. Your plan data will now appear when you view a workout.

    If you upload completed workouts from a GPS device and there is a matching workout plan (same workout type and date) in TitanXT, we’ll automatically tie your completed workout to the planned workout.

  • Copy Workout
    You may now copy a workout from the workout view page. Just click the copy icon at the top of the workout summary
