Questions the app is trying to answer
Here are some of the questions who motivated me to write this app the way I did. I am very interested to discuss what else to look for and what is of interest to do with the data.
Where was I fast or slow in my run?
This is the purpose of the map with gradient. Beside speed, you can rotate through other data like where was your heart rate, cadence or power high or low.
What was the real pattern of my speed over the run?
This is the purpose of the smoothing and the blue line. I always felt the plots in the garmin site were too noisy to really see what was the pattern of the speed over the run, so I tried to come up with some smoothing procedure and a moving average overlay that gives better sense hopefully of what happened. I am quite open for people to send me sample of runs or activities where they feel the plot is not very representative of what happened to think further about how to improve it, feel free to send me a bug report with an email contact to discuss.
How does my heart rate relate to my speed overtime
This is the purpose of the scatter plots in the stats page. The gradient color indicates the time of the points, so you see your evolution over time as your training improve (or worsen)
How am I doing compare to last month or last year
This is the reason for the cumulative graphs in the stats page
