Running and Cycling Workout Editor

:: activitylog2

A Garmin fitness device can use workouts during a bike or run activity: they are a collection of steps with a duration and intensity (such as heart rate, pace or power). While running or biking, the device keeps track of the duration and will sound an alarm if the intensity is too high or too low. Workouts can be created on the Garmin Connect website, but I decided to write my own application for creating workouts.

Bike Trainer

:: bike trainer, activitylog2

I bought a bike trainer last June for indoor riding during winter (which in the southern hemisphere is in July and August.) and I decided to write virtual ride simulator to use it. The simulator would follow a predefined course on the map: the current position would advance based on the speed received from the trainer, and the application would control the resistance based on the slope at the current location.
