    After you have logged in, go here:


    Depending on your 'training presets' (accessible through the control panel or  icon), you will either go to the 'blog' or 'calendar' view.

    At the top of this screen and ALL OTHER training-related screens including calendars, reports and graphs, you will see a bar at the top that looks like:


    This is your navigation to all the different blog-views, reports and graphs.  Each link is intuitive and gives specific information depending on what is chosen.

    HELP?  The question mark button will take you to all of the log articles.

    The default 'blog view' is a SUMMARY of all of your logged activities with comments including the comments of others. 

    Mini-calendar and icons

    BT's color-coded mini-calendar will be very important to you.  It allows you to quickly glance at the current or previous months to see what/if you did any training and what you logged.  Below is a picture along with the colors and what they mean.  NOTE, depending on your computer monitor and settings, the colors may not be exact.


    This is your blog training mini-calendar.


    PEACH/LIGHT RED = Strength data
    PINK = Run, bike or swim data.

    BLUE = No Logged workouts, ONLY health data.

    YELLOW = Only logged 'Overall Comments'

    RED = Injured/Sick.  Supersedes all other colors.



    Blog View
    (see full picture)

    If this is your first time, it will appear empty like this:


    To log your workouts:

    Just click on 'Edit today's log' and you will be taken to the logging screen.

    It's pretty much self explanatory, you log everything you want to here.  Just hit any of the 'Save and return to' buttons at the top.

    Your blog will quickly fill up to look something like this.


    3 -CALENDAR VIEW (see full picture)

    Your calendar, like your blog, will be devoid of info if your new and will look a little something-something like this:


    To log your workouts:

    Simply click on the number of the day you want to log.  You will then be taken to the logging screen.

    It's pretty much self explanatory, you log everything you want to here.  Just hit any of the 'Save and return to' buttons at the top.

    Your calendar will quickly fill up to look something like this.  OR see the full example here.


    What's those funny icons in my calendar/blog?

     = Nutrition data (text only) is logged.

     = Sports Data

     = Strength Data.

     & = Yes, it's true.  You have been blogged.  Somebody has left you a comment or as we like to call it, 'inspiration.'  Simply go to your blog-view of the corresponding day and click on the number in 'inspire me' to see the comments such as the one below:

    You can see all of that data by returning to your blog-view.

    Just use the navigation bar to click on the type of link for the report you would like to display.



    5 - PLANNED TRAINING LOG - Performance Members

    Logging your workouts
    This is exactly the same as the blog and calendar logging.

    To log planned training, go to the links and click 'planned' for the view you want to see:


    Repeat the above logging procedures.

    Don't get confused as to if you're viewing your planned or actual training.  Look at your headers and titles.  It's an easy switch back and forth.

    One last thing to note, when you have the planned training option enabled your next three days of planned training and your next upcoming race will appear in you 'actual' blog daily:

    Getting the next weeks workouts to show up in your actual blog
    If you have data in your planned training log for future dates, this will automatically show up in your 'Actual' blog for a quick reference.


    As you can see from the pictures, if you hover over the date, a box will appear giving you that days full workout details.


    Additionally, if you click on the '>>' next to the date, that will take you directly to your planned training log.

    Pretty cool.  Now you can't forget your workouts coming up.
