1. A method of electronically providing athletic performance trend coaching information to a user based on an analysis of performance data from a plurality of athletic activities and identifying user improvement in an activity, the method comprising:

  • receiving first electronic user position data and first electronic user heart rate data related to a previously completed running activity on a portable electronic device, the portable electronic device including a microprocessor, a display screen, a user input, a satellite positioning system receiver, an accelerometer, a memory, and a wireless communication transceiver, the first electronic user position data and the first electronic user heart rate data being stored in the memory;

    collecting second electronic user position data and second electronic user heart rate data related to a running activity on the portable electronic device, the second electronic user position data being determined via the satellite positioning system receiver, and the second electronic user position data and the second electronic user heart rate data being stored in the memory;

    receiving third electronic user position data and third electronic user heart rate data related to a previously completed cycling activity on the portable electronic device, the third electronic user position data and the third electronic user heart rate data being stored in the memory;

    collecting fourth electronic user position data and fourth electronic user heart rate data related to a cycling activity on the portable electronic device, the fourth electronic user position data being determined via the satellite positioning system receiver, and the fourth electronic user position data and the fourth electronic user heart rate data being stored in the memory;

    generating first electronic comparison data and determining whether a running performance trend is present based on an analysis of the first electronic user position data, the first electronic user heart rate data, the second electronic user position data, and the second electronic user heart rate data, wherein upon determining that a running performance trend is present, determining whether the trend represents improvement of the user'"'"'s running performance and generating running performance trend information;

    generating second electronic comparison data and determining whether a cycling performance trend is present by comparing the third electronic user position data, the third electronic user heart rate data, the fourth electronic user position data, and the fourth electronic user heart rate data, wherein upon determining that a cycling performance trend is present, determining whether the trend represents improvement of the user'"'"'s cycling performance and generating cycling performance trend information;

    displaying the running performance trend information and the cycling performance trend information on the display screen; and

    sending the running performance trend information and the cycling performance trend information via the wireless communication transceiver over at least one server to a remotely located computer for display on a display screen of the remotely located computer.
