I am a several decades climber but pretty brand new to training more seriously and I am working to get my training plan in shape. I am embarking on the 24 week mountaineering plan and trying to figure out how to get all the data logged appropriately and synced up.I hope this is the right place for this.
I have an apple watch SE and a Polar H10 HR monitor. I am set up in Training Peaks with the fitness plan. Run data tracked with the Apple Activity app syncs just fine across platforms. What I am struggling with is figuring out how to track uphill effort for ski mountaineering efforts. I am in Fairbanks and for the next 6 months most of my training will be backcountry skiing and Nordic Skiing. Any suggestions on apps and settings for tracking these activities?
For instance, if I track my xc-skiing as such in training peaks, I don’t get the Pa:HR metric. I have to change it to running to see that.
If I use Slopes app (free version), to track altitude gain and loss, when skiing, it assumes the uphill is on a lift? Is there a good app for tracking all the work getting up the hill on skis? Or do yo all just track as outdoor walking?
How about inputting Ice climbing and rock climbing workouts in Training Peaks? I don’t see an appropriate field for these.
As I said, I am new. I may be paying attention to the wrong metrics here and could just be tracking all my effort as run or walk or strength, but I feel like I will be less able to remember what I actually did when I look back in the future if I go that route.
Am I just using the wrong technology for my chosen sports? Thanks for the help folks!
