How about we log all miles on strava? Have them create us a challenge to track there? Does that count as a grievance?
That would be awesome. No way I'm doing the challenge on the ST training log. In fact I'll open a ticket to suggest that.
I don't know about a Strava challenge. I was thinking of just a private group. That way only the ST people that sign up for the 100/100 are allowed. I highly doubt Strava would do a challenge just for ST.
I think we are stuck with the ST log. It is imperfect, but what it does is it forces us to come to ST and go through the forum to get to the log. As a result of having to do this, people actually stop in on the forum and share what they are doing. Any group training is largely useless unless people talk to each other about the training they doing. In real life group training, it is the social aspect that makes a group ride more interesting than just going to the basement and getting on the trainer and riding at 95% FTP. The entire idea of a virtual training camp is to virtually bring us together as a community.
So on that note, my biggest grievance is people who participate in the challenge but post NOTHING about what they are doing. No pictures from run, no stories about feats of strength, no challenging their buddies to get off the couch etc etc. That's around 90% of what makes a virtual training camp more interesting than doing it solo. So unfortunately, we're going to force you to come through the forum to get to the ST training log....yeah sure, slowman will get some extra eyeballs on his website and that is fine too.....I'm here to contribute to this community and not stava's or garmin connects or training peaks, even though most of us happen to also use one or more of those. It's not about the tools, its about the community.
