Manual TRIMP Calculation

Manual TRIMP Calculation

Postby wmckean » Thu Feb 18, 2010 8:32 am

With the new feature in 1.4.2 to put in a TSS score in the notes: TSS=XXX, is it possible to do the same thing with say a swim workout and put in the TRIMP score for it? I have some runs (with a HRM, not a Garmin) and some swim workouts that I have manually calculated the TRIMP value for.

Yes. TRIMP=xxxx and TSS=xxxx for any category workout. This is exactly what I've been doing for my swim workouts.

So you have to write it in the notes field or can you input it directly in the Custom data field for TRIMP?

And does anyone have a good way of calculating TRIMP for swim sessions (not just guessing)?

1. You need to put it in the notes field.
2. TRIMP is calculated by time spent in different HR Zones, so a good way to calculate is record your HR during swimming, otherwise you need to guess.

I manually add a HR data track to my swims. I typically put my active laps at 140ish and my rest laps at 120. My rest laps are usually pretty short (ex runners hate to stand around the end of the lane :D . Then Training Load will calculate TRIMP.

I don't know of any HR monitors that will send and recieve a signal while swimming. If there is one, let me know. My garmin will not send through the water.

Take a look here: http://www.heartmonitors.com/exerciseti ... t_rate.htm
From the above link "Almost all heart rate monitors are waterproof, with the following recommendation: do not press the buttons underwater as this may break the waterproof seal."

In ST2 Forums I've seen a picture where someone had the HR Monitor under the swim cap.

Putting the device under the swim cap helps obtaining a GPS position but does nothing for HR measurement. Old Polar equipment or a Suunto memory belt are the two options I know of for HR measurement in water.

I knew the GPS trick, but had no idea the older polars and Sunnto memory belts could monitor HR underwater. Thanks for the info.

I tried my Garmin, but couldn't keep the strap inplace while swimming. I was hoping to get HR data durring rest periods. I settled for the old standby.....two finger method

You could use a tape to fix the HR Strap. Don't forget to post a picture here. :lol:

That would be interesting considering that the older I get, the less hair I can keep on my head and the more it seems to show up on my chest......ouch :shock: as the tape is riped off.
