Hoping to see gpx files of your neighborhood routes.

I sent you a "connection" request on Garmin Connect. There were 3 Bob Lux's. I hope I selected the correct one.

I want in on this - just opened up more on my Garmin Connect - sent a connection request to the Ernst Linder with the familiar photo

Jim, Bob: You both are in. Now we can really spy on each other without having to draw inferences from cryptic AP posts.

Just curious if there's a reason why you don't want your tracks to show up automatically on AP (completely understandable if that's your sentiment, there are plenty of reasons why people might want to not have that show up publicly).

I just now donated for the first time to AP so that I can download Garmin stuff. Most of my tracks are boring. If I have some interesting O tracks, I will download to AP. If I have interesting road running routes, I probably will post to Strava.

You can set it up so that all Garmin stuff goes to AP automatically, which makes posting training simpler.

Thanks. Yes I figured that out and set it up. So now it automatically transfers the numerical stats. Convenient!

There you go!

As a contributing AP member, the automatic garmin upload is one (of many) really nice features. Once my watch syncs with Garmin Connect, the workout just automatically goes on my AP log - time, HR zones, gps, the works. If you're just now becoming a regular AP subscriber, poke around, Ken has a lot of really nice features for the supporting crowd. The training calendar is nice as is the TRIMP/training load calculation stuff. The freshness/fatigue values it provides correlate pretty closely to how I'm feeling on any given day.. The latter don't show up on your current 7-day graph, but if you jump back a week or set a custom period in the URL, it should show you the graphics. You may have to enter your HR zones in settings first and provide TRIMP values. There are old discussions on some of these features kicking around in the archives.
