I was wondering what others do / consider best practice for definition of seasons within intervals.icu for comparing against previous bests / training load etc (on the /power, /fitness, /compare, /totals pages for instance).
I have tended to simply have a season per year, but am thinking perhaps that is not the best thing to do. For instance at this end of the year my power bests and training load are down compared to my bests during the Summer (Northern Hemisphere-er here!), so comparison there is of no real benefit. And come January 1st, it doesn’t really make sense to zero everything as my January efforts will be of interest compared against my recent end-of-year efforts.
I’m thinking it may be better to set up e.g Summer & Winter seasons to compare easier the type of training that I am doing. Perhaps aligned to Spring & Autumn equinoxes? Which would be season changeover at end of March & end of September. But then I may still put some good efforts in during October with the last of my Summer form… so maybe would be better to have unequal length seasons, e.g November - March (5 month winter season) & April - October (7 month summer season). And that would align with clock changes for daylight savings…
What do you do / think is best?
