Tech Tip: Log Your Run Online Training Log

Let me start by saying — I am NOT a runner.  But I still keep an online training log. Why?  I happen to be a girl who loves tracking stats, seeing GPS in action and dreams of being in shape. (Thanks to Erin for some extra motivation here!)

When my dad, a veteran of 30+ marathons and counting, shared Log Your Run with me, I knew it was technology I could really use, and it was free!

What’s so great?  First, I can access the same data from my computer or my phone, no need to reconcile data — Yipee!

The tool tracks multiple types of activities (walking, swimming, etc.), my routes are mapped and my pace is calculated.  So while I may be a few years behind my dad’s lifetime mileage of 16,000 (more than half way around the Earth!), at least I’ve taken the first step!

    Dear Amy,

    Yes, keeping maps of where you walk (or run)in the world is fun. One warning…if you post them online for others to see, like mapmyrun.com …don’t start and end at your house…they will know where you live! Privacy sensitive! But keeping walking(running) anyway!

      Good tip! I noticed you can mark your routes as “Private”, too. The very reason this post has a generic screen shot of a map…no need to entice any more stalkers to follow me!

        I don’t run either, but, I know a lot of people online who use mapmyrun app … you can pick an ID/pwd and just share it with your SO/friend so they will know where you are on the run (without making it public)
