While out on today's run, I started pondering how to get a Garmin workout schedule, such as those offered by Runner's World, on to my HTC Desire. I use my 'phone for everything these days, so it made sense to have my training schedule on ther, too. However, it would be a PITA to load a 16 week programme.
So, I've written a web-based utility that will take the workout schedule that Garmin Training Center exports and convert it in to a CSV that can be loaded in to Google Calendar. It carries through the name of the workout, the date, and detail.
In Google Calender, I created a new calendar ("Marathon Training") and imported the data in to that so it's easy to remove or hide the schedule if I gets in the way.
I've only tested it with my own workout and calendar, and it sync'd to my phone within seconds. Anyone interested in trying it out? The utility doesn't save any data, nor do you need to provide any detail other than your Garmin export file (a .tcxfrom File > Export > Workouts ...). It's simply uploads your export, convert it and then sends the CSV back to the browser.
If anyone's interested, reply here or drop me a PM. Alternatively, if the Mods. agree, I'll post the URL here for anyone to use.
It's offered without any warranty. The format of the source rwschedule.wkt is slightly different, so that won't import correctly at the moment.
I'd like this if possible!
Not sure how to send a PM so if you could post it here that would be great.
