I hope 2017 was a good year for you and that target setting was as motivating and was as much fun for you as it was for me (at times).
I had a strange swim year as you can see from this chart.

I 'AGE UP' in 2018 - YEAH!!!
Does anyone else tell everyone they meet that they can't wait to grow older? Or is it just me :)
You do get the strangest of looks......
Have a great year!

No New design features for 2018
New design features for 2017
New design features for 2016
New design features for 2015
(BUT with your target for the whole year firmly in focus!!)
Hints for new users:
STEP 1:PC or MAC with MS Excel (2007 or later)
(e.g. "Dave's swims 2018"; "Anita's rows 2018"; "Pedro's cycles 2018"
*Experienced users will probably want a copy to be saved in the cloud to access from anywhere, on any device - see my solution below.
Hints for not so new users - using mobile devices:
STEP 2: Using iPad & iPhone (NOT to be done before step 1)
Ipads and iPhones CANNOT import these, highly formatted, Excel files directly
without messing them up completely!!!!! - try it and see !
You will need to use Excel for iPad or Excel for iPhone
My Workaround Method - there are other ways of doing this!
Remember to Google every time you get stuck with anything - there's loads of help out there
Technology that we are using successfully at home
(there are many other ways of doing this I believe):
All devices are able to access the spreadsheet in use, via Dropbox, so that the latest data is accessible from any device.
The latest spreadsheet copy is automatically loaded into the memory of ALL our devices - if/as they are switched on.
This means it is available to view or enter data on any device at any time we choose anywhere in the world. Brilliant!
