A tally of ALL training hours
as an elite athlete there are a few metrics that I look for at year end.
- Total hours training
- Total tss
The total hours training should be easy for TP to program. It can even be a number right next to the pie chart.
And yes, I know I can add these up myself, but on occasion, the pie pieces are so small that the scroll over isn't accurate.

I agree with the commenters. These basic summary metrics are pretty much required for any multisport athlete and coach. Even a sport that is highly seasonal or has a lot of cross training like xc skiing or rowing, being able to summarize total volumes or stress is very much fundamental.
Yearly totals that are always accessible are a REQUIRED data point! How in the world are we to know what to schedule for, or what our target is without knowing where we came from?
I HIGHLY suggest that you make this data available, and even more so, tally the previous 4 years and have that data available!
OK, the data points that are of importance, in order of importance.
1. Yearly total for TSS
2. Yearly Hours
3. Yearly Miles
As you well know, the best metric to train by is TSS! This takes into consideration the effort put forth in a given training session, week, month and year. Knowing what my total TSS was for the previous year would inform me on how to plan for the current.
This is a VERY easy metric for you, the programmer, to create! It's as simple as writing a script that would tally ALL TSS for ALL logged events and put it into a bar chart.
PLEASE make this happen!
