Adding Custom Metrics
If you want to add several custom user metrics for deeper analysis and trends, you can use the usermetrics.doc file below. It’s a work-in-progress, but you can use at as a starting point.
To use: rename the file to usermetrics.xml and copy to your Golden Cheetah athlete library. Make sure you back up your current usermetrics.xml before copying, especially if you already have custom metrics.
If you already have custom metrics, you can copy and paste the contents of the usermetrics..doc below into your current usermetrics.xml.
Downloading activity charts from the cloud:
View – Download Chart. Make sure you select “All” for chart type, and you can filter for sport and language.
You can download “Garmin and Stryd” for a chart that will plot many of Stryd’s metrics. It’s set up for Garmin’s running dynamics as well.
