This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new Power BI report, and load the running data from the CSV file in the above folder:

Training data

The file contains training data for a Wise Owl for the Manchester Marathon in April 2020. As for so many other things, COVID had other plans for Shaun.


Create a line chart showing distance run by month:

Line chart by month

See the notes below for how to do this!


Here are some extra things you'll need to do:

  1. You'll need to sort the month name by the month number column to get the months to appear in the correct chronological order.
  2. You will need to add a Y axis constant line to show the initial target of 45 km per month.

Save this report as Oh COVID, then close it down.
