ErgData not counting rest interval meters

Post by longhorizon » November 30th, 2023, 1:49 pm

I've just now started using ErgData with my PM5. One of my favorite workouts is 2000m pieces with a 4 min rest interval between. On my PM5, meters rowed during 'rest' count (and in fact make up more than 1500 additional meters once done with workout). I noticed during my last 2 sessions that ErgData only transferred the 2000m intervals, not the rest meters to my log book. How can I fix that? Can I fix that?

Thank you.

The overview "header" shows only meters rowed in the intervals, but there are also rest meters and overall meters listed below the header with the bigger numbers.
Probably you haven't seen that? Or is it looking completely different?

Have a look at this entry: https://log.concept2.com/profile/1580803/log/81042385
Does it look the same as yours?

I think the issue is that your 'front page' of the logbook ie the listings of your workouts will only show the intervals programmed in, say 6k for 3 x 2k, but the rest metres are added to the total logbook distance.

They are accounted for in the finer detail page as Sascha shows above too, but it won't show them on the main listings of your sessions as rest metres are discretionary as you may like to rest or keep rowing at any given pace.
50 HWT; 6' 4"; 1k= 3:09; 2k= 6:36; 5k= 17:19; 6k= 20:47; 10k= 35:46 30mins= 8,488m 60mins= 16,618m HM= 1:16.47; FM= 2:40:41; 50k= 3:16:09; 100k= 7:52:44; 12hrs = 153km

So, I did an experiment and, of course you are right. Thank you for pointing that out because I never would have figured it out for myself!
It did in fact transfer my total meters to my total meters logged on the logbook page. Thank you both. Kai
