How To

Five ways to judge your effort

Feel, HRM, power meter, Garmin Connect, and Strava

Garmin Connect

No matter what activity you’re doing there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing progress. From faster average speeds to higher power outputs at lower heart-rates each can act as their own motivator to help get you out the door and on to the bike, but it’s also important to record and track your ride data over time to ensure you’re moving in the right direction.

Garmin Connect offers an online platform for logging and analysing your training in a simple and user friendly way. By uploading your ride data you not only track every workout but have the facility to check your progress, set goals, see personal records and train against a virtual partner on a course, and at a speed, that you have defined – a great way to stay focussed if you spend most of your time training alone. All of this can be used to judge your effort both on the bike and as part of a structured training plan that you have full control of.
