Newest mPaceline Features

Average Watt/Output Graph

Check out the Output Graph on the Ride Detail Screen.  We have added Average Output to the line chart.  Now you can view Output, Resistance, Cadence, HR and Average Output.  This is a moving average of your output over the course of the ride. In areas where you worked harder, the average will increase. Similar if you let yourself slow down a bit.

Water Intake Monitoring

Your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work properly. A good guage of water consumption is to consider drinking half of your body weight in ounces each day. That is a reasonable goal. However, different people need different amounts of water to stay hydrated. Please consult with your doctor to identify your specific consumption goals.

mPaceline can help you track your daily water intake and help you stay hydrated during your busy day. You’ve got the workout piece down, now make sure that you are consuming your recommended amount of water daily.

Note that the Water Intake Features requires an additional payment and it not included in the base purchase of mPaceline. To purchase, go to Setting in mPaceline and then tap on Optional Paid Features in the App Store section.

How it works

After you purchase, go to Settings and set the amount of water that you would like to track each day (i.e. your goal). The Home screen in mPaceline will show you how you are doing towards this goal. You can easily acknowledge each drink that you take in the mPaceline iPhone app or on your Apple Watch. It’s quick and easy.

Monitor your Progress

All water intake is stored in Health Kit so you can use the Health App to view your intake over time. You can also go to the Results screens in mPaceline to see daily, weekly and monthly progress.

Receive Drink Reminders

mPaceline can send you notifications throughout the day to remind you to stay hydrated. Pick from a number of timeframes throughout the day.

If you have and Apple Watch and have installed the mPaceline Watch Companion, you can also recognize drinks that you have taken on your Apple Watch.  Tap on the mPaceline App on the Watch and then swipe to the Water Intake screen.

Note that you can also set the Complications on the Watch to show your achievement of your daily intake goals. See settings on the mPaceline App and then set the complication on the Watch.

Purchasing this feature will allow you to view the following metrics for each workout and produce graphs of their values:

Acute Training Load – ATL is a measure of your Fatigue. It is typically based on the workouts that you have done over the past week. Fatigue is important because it can help you forecast how much recovery you may need. As you ride, your high-TSS workouts add up and increase your fatigue. The higher the TSS, the more quickly your Fatigue will increase. Your body will soon start to feel the effects of your training and at some point you should think about taking days off.

Chronic Training Load – CTL is a measure of your Fitness and is usually based on efforts that you have done over a 6 week period. If you are training daily or every few days and your rides are getting progressively harder (TSS is increasing) your fitness will go up.

Your current Fitness, in combination with your TSS from a ride can be used to determine the difficulty of an effort

Hard Effort – A TSS score 50%-100% above your current Fitness.

Moderate Effort – A TSS score 25%-50% above your current Fitness.

Easy Effort – A TSS score less than 25% above your current Fitness.

Training Stress Balance – TSB is a measure of your Form or preparedness for an effort. Form is simply your Fitness less your Fatigue. This is an important metric and can be used to determine how prepared you are to take on a race, challenge, etc. Every individual is difference, but consider the following with respect to Form:

Lazy Zone – Form greater than 25. Do something, you have rested long enough. Fitness is decreasing.

Ready to Race Zone – Form between 5 to 25. You are in pretty good shape for an all out effort.

Steady Zone – Form between -10 and 5. Not building or losing Fitness.

Training Zone – Form between -10 to -30. You are in the optimal zone for building Fitness.

Danger Zone – Form less than -30. Consider resting, you are going to hurt yourself.
