Track Activities with Strava

Do you have a Strava account?  It’s free!  And it can link to your existing activity tracking app to download your workouts automatically.  I use Garmin products and I  have my Strava account linked to my Garmin Connect account and thus there’s no need for me to do anything but look at the results.

Below is copied directly from the Strava website:

Strava is a community of athletes from all over the world. We are a tribe. Alone or together, we strive. Strava lets you experience what we call social fitness – connecting and competing with each other via mobile and online apps. No matter the weather, day after day, we prove ourselves.  Strava lets you track your rides and runs via your iPhone, Android or dedicated GPS device and helps you analyze and quantify your performance. Strava provides motivation and camaraderie, and helps us prove that we’re out there doing what we love to do.

Along with tracking all your activity’s for your review, Strava has segments that have been created by the members.  A Strava segment is a route, sometimes very short (a quarter mile or less) or sometimes many miles long.  And Strava will tell you how fast you went during that segment, it will also point out if it’s P.R. and it will rank you compared to anyone else who has done the same segment and also has an account.

Here is a link to my bike ride at the Oh My Goddard Olympic triathlon.  You can see that someone created a segment for the whole course, plus some smaller segments within the course.  Also, under my picture in the top left, there’s a link, “View Flybys.”  This feature can show how you raced against people who also have Strava Accounts.

Also, the RMHP club has a club page.  If you do start a Strava account, feel free to join the club page and follow the progress of your teammates.  Link for the RMHP club page below:

I hope this was helpful.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
