    I just started using the Training Peaks training calendar.

    I am a mountaineer, and trying to find best descriptions for my workouts for the calendar.

    I do Stairs with a pack, and spend time at the climbing gym. (and cycle, run, hike, weights, etc)

    But what icon should I use for my Stairs and climbing workouts? I only see “run, bike, crosstrain, strength, custom, other, and walk” as choices for what I do.

    Is there a way to add a workout type, or do I just pick one of the choices above for my Stairs, Gym Climbs, and Hikes?

    Thanks!

    What we coaches at Uphill Athlete do with our coached athletes is is the following

    Hiking both gentle and steeply = Other
    Rock Climbing = Strength

    Thanks Scott!

    I plan to purchase one of the plans from your UA , and am loading my workouts for the past few months, so I want it to be usable for you to help my plan and training when I get a package from you.

    I get over-detailed with most things, and TP icons are no exception. Here’s what I use:

    * Walk: For hikes and uphill work in the summer
    * Brick: For rock climbing, because the icon looks like a 3-finger pocket
    * Swim: For resort skiing, because the waves look like snowdrifts
    * Row: For skimo and BC skiing, because the oars look like skis

    I use the rest of their icons as designed.

    I like it this way because then I can look at the volume charts and have a good idea of volume per activity.
