I've been told I don't blog about my projects often enough, so here's a feature update on my Chrome Extension that adds various improvements to the Strava.com fitness tracker.
All the features are optional and can be individually enabled in the options panel.
This adds aggregate data (fastest, slowest, average, etc.) when segments are repeated within an activity. It's particularly useful for laps or—like this Everesting attempt—hill repeats:
Changes the default leaderboard away from "Overall" when viewing a segment effort. The most rewarding training often comes from comparing your own past performances rather than those of others, so viewing your own results by default can make more sense.
You can select any of Men, Women, I'm Following or My Results:
Hide feed entries
Hides various entry types in the activity feed that can get annoying. You currently have the option of hiding challenges, route creations, goals created or club memberships:
Calculates a Variability Index (VI) from the weighted average power and the average power, an indication of how "smooth" a ride was. Required a power meter. A VI of 1.0 would mean a ride was paced "perfectly", with very few surges of effort:
Automatically loads more dashboard entries when reaching the bottom, saving a tedious click on the "More" button:
Estimates a run's Training Stress Score (TSS) from its Grade Adjusted Pace distribution, a measure of that workout's duration and intensity relative to the athletes's capability, providing an insight into correct recovery time and overall training load over time:
Hide "find friends"
Hides social networking buttons, including invitations to invite or find further friends:
"Enter" posts comment
Immediately posts comment when pressing Enter/Return key in the edit box rather than adding a newline:
Changes the default sport for the "Side by Side comparison" module to running when viewing athlete profiles:
Shows running cadence by default in the elevation profile:
Running heart rate
Shows running heart rate by default in elevation profile:
Selects "Show Estimated FTP" by default on the Power Curve page:
Standard Google map
Prefer the "Standard" Google map over the "Terrain" view:
