Polar F11 and Marathon Training

Guest Author
I've started uploading my running log using Polar
F11
to their website.

A monthly view provides a summary for the entire month and shows the days on
which any kind of physical activity was recorded by F11.

A weekly view provides more detail in terms of finish times,
high and low limit of heart rate and total time spent in the week so far.

A daily view allows you to specify the different types of
Activity ("Running" below). It shows the timing to the
exact second. If I wear the heart rate monitor during the activity, then it calculates the
calories burned, fat consumption, maximum
heart rate
(HRmax) and average
heart rate
(HRavg, aka resting heart rate).

I'm planning to use this for tracking my marathon
training
this year. 

I wish, and hope, Polar define a Web service so that users can
access their data programmatically or at least allow the data to be exported in
a usable format.
