Golden Cheetah intervals

I've been playing around with Golden Cheetah a bit the past couple of weeks, trying to decide if I'm going to pay to upgrade WKO or not.

I like several things about GC, but I don't like the graph and ability to zoom/view selected intervals. Unless I'm just not finding it, there's no way to select an interval on the graph and then view the data from that interval.

Any easy work-arounds for this?

You know, your WKO 2.2 isn't going to stop working. You can still use it

That was helpful..

I could've also mentioned that I have WKO on an old desktop machine that I no longer use much, and with WKO's "single machine" BS, I am forced to either upgrade or call and beg them for a transfer of my existing license to another machine. My wife also wants to start training with power, and I would like to have multiple computer usage of whichever software tool we use.

Right now, you have to initiate the intervals on your powermeter head. Apparently, in the next build of GC, there will be intervals, a performance manager, and a host of other new features. It's a rough program compared to more commercial options, but it does it's job and it's free and open source.

I use GC because there is no WKO+ version for mac, and I don't intend to buy a PC or a copy of windows just to run a single program.

email them. when i reformatted my computer I needed a new key. All i did was give them my name and email so they could verify i bought the program. I had a new key in 15 minutes.

I thought for sure this thread would be about how to go for the kill at 70kph and achieve gold.

Yeah...set your wife on a scooter with a rare steak on a stick, have her accelerate to 70 kph...if you catch her, you get to eat. Take that however you wish...

I had WKO+ running on two computers this summer - I thought that was supported by the older versions? Just had to enter my reg-key in the other version. (perhaps this helps someone)

Anyway, I'm liking this new 70kmh/scooter/steak approach to training.

Yep, that and more is in the current developer builds. It's way better than 1.2. I don't know the release date but there's been a rush to get stuff in and bugs fixed because its pending. If you want it now you can check out the code and build it, it's not that hard if you are familar with software development.

I think WKO 2.0 allows two computers.

At least on Linux you can use the Wine emulator to run WKO... no Windows license or install needed like with a VM. It might work on Intel macs too.

Best I can suggest is do the "find best intervals", grab the start times from those, and then highlight them in the ride plot graph window. Sorry, it's not great, but it's better than nothing..

BTW count me as another mac user who's not buying a copy of windows just for one application.
