Attackpoint - performance and training tools for orienteering athletes

Discussion: Attackpoint frequency

in: Orienteering; General

On a typical day, how frequently do you visit attackpoint, and how much time do you spend on attackpoint?

I'm curious what everyone's habits are; if only I could reasonably log my attackpoint time as "training..."
Jun 29, 2009 5:42 PM # 
I check maybe two or three times a day, about five minutes per visit.

This is AP not AA

I started out using AP infrequently. Now I need to little AP in the morning just to feel normal.

O Steve!:
Ive already checked toddp's log 4 times today.....its bad....
Jun 29, 2009 10:34 PM # 
Geez, anyone who checks AP more than once per day clearly needs help.

Interesting question.... I work for state of NH &, early on, could access at work - but it was quickly filtered out - I think as a sports category but perhaps under "terrorism." For addictive personalities, it could be a challenge.

Usually not more than once per hour, I think.

A! is always the first thing I do when I turn on the computer in the morning. Then, I'll come back at some point to log my training; maybe twice if it's a multi-workout day. If there's a discussion I'm interested in, I might check in a few times for that, too.

I'm going to be checking a lot more now that JWOC is about to start! Go USA. of course the athletes will probably be too busy running to post much, but I hope that there will be a lot to read here...opening ceremony is July 5th.

I check it so frequently I don't even need an RSS feed. *shame*

What with training and logging it and reading about it and other people's training, I'm sure nobody has paid employment ... or another life. Like me.
Jun 30, 2009 7:19 PM # 
Once a day. About 15 minutes per day.
Jun 30, 2009 8:39 PM # 
On every day that I do a training, about 5-10 minutes...
Jun 30, 2009 8:40 PM # 
Only when I post my own training log, about 5-10mins per visit to look around at what's new.

I worry that Ken is tracking how much time people spend on AP, although it is possible to have AP up in the background (as I do) without checking it. But, if it is there, it is hard to resist.

I guess logging frequency, which is tracked, is a reasonable proxy.
Jun 30, 2009 10:32 PM # 
less than i used to do, but 2 or 3 times a day, depending on workouts and access to computer....
Jul 1, 2009 6:04 AM # 
logging every workout.. also checking coleagues.. more or less few times a day..
Jul 1, 2009 12:20 PM # 
1-2 times per day for 5min, longer if there are interesting discussions
Jul 1, 2009 12:34 PM # 
I am used to browse AP with my cell phone's browser at toilet. So basicly the frequency is up to my stomach.
Jul 1, 2009 6:58 PM # 
A few times per day except when I have no internet connection (like the past 55 hours) and experience withdrawal symptoms. The amount of time depends on how many of my 'favorites' (especially the Webster XC runners) have posted training.

Not as much as I used to, but certainly daily if I have access to a computer.

I'm sure nobody has paid employment ... or another life.
I´m lucky to have a paid employment - and I´m also lucky that my employers don´t know I live another life that they pay for ;)

I always have it up in the background and check it a few times per day, more at the first of the week when I analyze what I did the previous week.

So how many of you have it as your home page? I guess this means it's time for another donation. Thanks for the reminder.

It has gotten a bit out of control with the MNOC regulars. Often when we meet face to face and start to tell a story about a workout or race, one will hear, "Oh yeah, I read that on your log. You don't have to tell me the rest."

I visit AP whenever it comes time to log training for the day, so I'd say its about once a day, 4-5 days per week on average.

How long I spend us usually about 10-15 min, unless I have a major schedule revamp or find a discussion thread very interesting.
Jul 3, 2009 6:34 AM # 
once a day, for about 16 hours
Jul 3, 2009 3:34 PM #

I just read this whole thread at the end of my lunchtime. I read some other discussions at the start of my lunchtime. In the middle I did other stuff.

Derrick Spafford:
2x per day usually....just after training each time.

I check it about once every 4 months or so. I have a real problem remembering to go to a website to look for a discussion thread. It's much easier for me to follow a discussion if it comes to my e-mail inbox. The only reason I checked AP today is because Glenn Schorr posted a note to the USOF ClubNet that he was starting a couple of discussion threads here.

Usually 2 to 4 times a day, 10 minutes each.
