Thanks Nellers.

TheBeard, it's just another stat to track really. For much of the lockdown (with no races) I've been doing all my training at 142bpm and I've seen some encouraging progress at that effort when I do a 5-mile run on the flat. The "beats per mile" stat contributes is helpful as alongside the pace hopefully getting quicker, the "beats per mile" should get lower as you get fitter.

There's a very good runner who has a blog that mentions it here. There is a paragraph just above his graph in this post.

Beats per mile was the one infallible measure of fitness that I used to believe (when I had a reliable HR monitor! The old strap with Garmin 305 and 310 worked way better than the modern fance optical HR monitor that I now have!)

Welcome to Fetch. Any questions, just ask. Some great threads on here about HR based training. :-) G

So, is there a difference between following a Fetchie and buddying them?

There is indeed. Following a Fetchie means you'll get a notification up there ^ whenever they log some training. Buddying a Fetchie allows them to see blogs you've limited to "buddies only" (but not vice versa unless they buddy you back) and gives you an additional filter to use for some lists.

May I suggest that everone who logged a run on strava today, whilst wearing the magnificent green colours posts a picture on there - I have never had so many "kudos" for a simple run before. Great way to get the site publicity!

Hi Tooms - I hope someone who knows and can explain more coherently will be along soon, but until then you could try going to the training log page fetcheveryone.com/training-add.php (cross fingers that’s correct). Can’t help you with strava because mine uploads automatically to garmin connect and I have set up permission for it to come over to Fetch. You probably need to set up something similar - it’s pretty simple, IIRC. This might or might not help, but someone else will be around before long.

It would have helped if I’d remembered to include the link. Only real drawback I can think of on this site is the inability to edit posts...
