Oscar's Everyone Day

Sunday 23rd June 2024
In 2021 Oscar the Grouch proposed one day each year where "we unite as a community and EVERYONE records an activity of some sort - a dog walk, a run, a swim, a ride, ski if you want...".

Sadly we lost Oscar in March, so I'd like to dedicate Everyone Day to him. Thank you for the inspiration you gave us Oscar.

Is it possible to restore accidentally deleted training?

*Now*, you should see a bit in the top right of that individual run, that lets you export as a TCX (or possibly FIT - if FIT is available go for that).

and there it is
thank you so much for holding my hand - do you know they used to let me actually be responsible for real people, frightening isn't it
I owe you a pint or two at Draycote

I was only bothered as i appear to have just run 10 miles 2 minutes faster than my actual 10 mile PB and didn't want to lose the evidence

:-) Don't forget to delete the other ten miler, unless you did two today :-)

unfortunately it's not taken off the paused time when I was retying shoelaces etc so doesn't look as quick, but I know it was 1:56:09 really :-)

I like a story with a happy ending :-).

To piggyback on a question, fetch: why is a FIT better than a TCX better than a GPX? It is moot for me, as all I can export is GPX, but that does seem to include all the information needed (including not including pauses).

It’s simply the amount of data available, D.

Hi Ian - back to TCX vs GPX. In the rare cases I reload a run (or walk or bike)* from Garmin Connect, it's 'better' to choose TCX over GPX?
*Typically happens when I'm half way home in the car & the Garmin is busy bleeping each mile, so the activity needs a bit of tweaking to remove the non active bits.

Hi um - yes, if you've ever opened up a TCX file in a text editor, versus the same file in GPX format, the TCX is usually far richer in detail.

Thanks - will use TCX in future.
Do you know of a run or time related XML editor - eg remove everything before of after a specificied time or distance? (other than my method of deleting ~50 entries, saving and then checking via Google Earth if I've got the right bits left).

If not - when you've exhausted your improvement list, and sat around just itching for something to do, a map driven XML auto-editor would be great!

Not off the top of my head, but I like the idea of making one :-)

Got something to say?
