Solo challenger is an application that gives you the tools to set yourself personal goals based on your past performance.
We all love a bit of healthy competition to get us motivated and give us something to work towards, and who better to compete with than yourself?
You set yourself challenges by selecting a target time period from the past where you achieved some distance, time, speed or gain stats that you'd like to beat. For example, you could choose last November, or any month that you achieved some healthy stats!
Once you have chosen your target time period, you choose a date that you will begin your challenge - this is usually today's date or a date in the future. This is the date that you will begin attempting to beat your stats from your target time period.
When you select your challenge start date you do not need to set your end date, this is because the time that you have to complete the challenge will always be the same as the target time period.
1. Select the activity type - ride, run, kayak, etc.
2. Select your target time period - this is a time period from the past from which the totals that you achieved (total distance, total time, etc.) become the targets for you to accomplish in your challenge.
3. Select the date that you will begin your challenge - this is usually today's date or a date in the future, it is the date from which you will start trying to attain or beat your target period stats.
Challenges can be over any length of time - 1 week, 1 Month, 1 year - the choice is yours and you can set up as many challenges as you like.
Once you have saved your challenge(s), you can log in to Solo challenger at any time to check your results.
I have set up a cycling challenge where I started the challenge on the first day of April 2017 and selected March 2017 as my target period.
Solo Challenger gathers your stats from both time periods and puts them together showing your current results, your target and where you were at at the same point in time back in the target period.
Solo Challenger also shows how your total distance, activity time and elevation gain have built over time on a worm graph to give a clear visual representation
Solo Challenger also has a host of similar features for statistic enthusiasts
