Marathon Guide WKT file - is it mac compatible
I have just downloaded the 16-week marathon guide for my Garmin Forerunner 305 but have been unable to import it into my Training Centre programme for syncing with my forerunner unit.
I use a mac running osx and the latest Training Centre application is up to date at vers 2.0.3 (although windows versions are up to 3.3)...
Is the wkt file that i downloaded only windows compatible..... any help would be appreciated
thanks in advance
I've been able to download the schedule but it's all a month earlier, so apparatnly I'm doing the FLM on March 13th! On my own..
Any ideas on what's wrong?
i have recieved a comment from gamin europe who commented..
"At present the Runners World workout plans are only available in the .wkt file type, which will only work on the Windows based version of the Garmin Training Center."
But I am sure I had uploaded a previous workout schedule (WKT type file) through previous versions of Training Centre software..... i will hold off for some more advice.... if i hear anything else from Garmin I will post it on the message board....
Thanks for letting us know about the issues you've been having. There appears to be two themes, both on here and in another thread. Firstly, the downloadable Garmin schedules were never available for Mac users. To get around this we're going to try and build a function that allows the user to down their schedule straight for this site and into their Garmin, thus making Training Center irrelevant.
The second theme is based around the date version downloading a month before the FLM ie the 13th of March. That's really odd and it's not something we or the good chaps at Garmin found during testing. Therefore if you're having this problem I'd be grateful for as much information as possible. The following would be ideal:
Thanks for all your patience and your feedback. As ever it's much appreciated.
Hi Daniel RW
Me too: date version downloading a month before the FLM ie the 13th of March
Look forward to a quick fix!
I downloaded sub 3.30. I am using the most up to date version of training center. I have now had to move all runs by hand.
Can you please send the file you downloaded to my email address?
Thanks and sorry you had to tranfer everything by hand.
Daniel- no probs. Have sent you file. Hope it helps.
Thanks for the speedy response
Cheers for sending the file over so quickly. We'll have someone take a look at tomorrow.
I downloaded the sub 3.45 for FLM and also getting it with the marathon on 13th March. I'm also using version 3.2.0 of the training center.
I am also getting the marathon to be on the 13th March - I thought I had got around it by re-downloading it with FLM @ 13/5/08 but around week 6 onwards, the long run ends up on a Monday so it will need some manual reshuffling.
I am using version 3.2.0 of the training centre.
I've also had the problem of my schedule sub 4.00 and the marathon date is coming up the month before. I've emailed Garmin about it. I've a 305 forerunner. I am using vista os and though there might be some kinks with vista as there is with everything else!
Please could you let us know how your testing has got on. I'm in the ecommerce world, so know what you're going through!
Aw - so i have spent ages putting stuff on my mac for no good reason
righto have got the schedule on the GPS!
can I ask if the schedule says to run 4M and I happen to run 5M does it stop recording my pace and distance after 4M?
Ive just bought the forerunner based on the reviews in RW, and am also on a MAC. Unfortunately no mention of these issues on the review!!!!
Im assuming theres no fix to this problem - so being PC'less whats my best course of ction to get the schedules, or am I sending the 305 back???
