Hi, I just came across this link:


(click on Timex Training Software at the bottom)

Maybe you know already about it (I always arrive late to the best things )

Is a training software. You can track how many time in which activity have you spend and in which
Heart Rate Zone. You can also track your
weight and your resting pulse.

As long as you define your own HR zones
and there are 5 of them, you can have two for aerobic training. other for anaerobic and two for apnea: O2 and CO2 zone. This way you can track how many time/week (day or month)
you have spent in this two zones (and also track aerobic and anaerobic). You can make graphs of time spent in every zone. You can also define activities, so you can create 'O2 static' and 'CO2 static' 'CO2 walking' 'CO2 dynamic' and so on...
You can also track you Personal Bests if you fill the daily Weigth and Resting Pulse boxes with them

Also, It's pretty easy to use. And really complete. And... freeeeee

No, I'm not getting paid by timex!!! :D

something has gone wrong with this post...
please some moderators can delete the void posts? I don't have permissions to do it.

The valid post is the one at:

10th-August-2004 15:01

No idea of what happened. In fact, you can't post a void message
Yesterday It seems like there was a time were the server was too busy to allocate bandwidth to reply to the request, but enough cpu and disk time to save the post. The result?
A post repeated for many times without me even noticing it. Later, I realized that everytime the server told 'too busy to post', he (or she :D ) posted actually.

Sorry for the mess :D
Now seriously,
As I said I try it, but have some questions:
How I introduce the resting pulse and dayly weight, and also how you define O2 and CO2 zones ( you mean HR while static?)
Thanks for the help
Hi Frank!
Each time you record an activity (the + sign) there's a tab called
'daily data' where you are asked to enter your Body Weight and Resting Pulse.
At the Edit>Preferences>General>Manage activity types you can add activity names. I have defined CO2 static, O2 static, CO2 walking, O2 walking and CO2 dynamic. By doing this, I can track
weekly/daily/monthly/whatever/ time spent doing these activities.
As dor the heart zones: Edit>Preferences>Heart Rate Zones:
here you have the classical 5 zones: Recovery zone, Low aerobic, High aerobic, Aerobic Threshold and Redline Zone (for doing intervals, sprints, etc). I never use Recovery zone (for me is below 113 ppm :), so every apnea training I put in this category.
This way I can track total time spent in apnea. I was planning to use this lower zone for O2 apnea and the highest (sprints) for doing CO2 apnea, but as long as I do intervals and want to keep track of them, only track apnea time. And that's it! :D

Tons of health,

Gracias Oscar.

Now is all clear.

I'll see how it helps my training
