Check your distance units

Thu, 03 Mar 2011 01:07:16 +0100

As some of you may have noticed the site went down a couple of times on the evening of March 2nd 2011. This caused a loss of the distance unit user setting. In order to restore the default distance unit for your account I have set your default unit based on the data that you have entered in the database - for example if you logged your data in kilometers your default unit has been set to km. If your default unit shows up wrong you can set your default unit in the contact me (/index.php?option=com_contact) with your username and email and I can fix it for you.

Barefoot Running

Mon, 17 Jan 2011 12:55:28 +0100

Article submitted by Ms. Sara Martinez About two months ago, I would have purchased my 8th pair of high-end running shoes. These are comfortable shoes with great fit and impact protection. The stability on this shoe to support my foot from chances of pronation is locksafe. There is a martyred gel in its sole to take the abuse of my heelstrike shock away from joints and spine. The off-center lacing is heralded as innovative in promoting a safe transfer of energy and wrapping around the top of the foot. This shoe is a marvel of technology spawned from brilliant minds and millions of research dollars towards engineering. They had served me well, and I credit thousands of miles (and around a thousand dollars) to them. But, about two months ago, I bought a certain book about running and people who run well on low-tech. I had never questioned why it took such feats of technology to help me…put one foot in front of the other? It broadened my perspectives, asked basic questions, invited me to do my own fact-finding, and take an $85 risk and investment. It’s been great, and I’ve...

August is Alzheimer's Month

Thu, 29 Jul 2010 16:18:18 +0100

Everybody runs or bikes for a reason and sometimes the reason is charity. I have been thinking of ways in which LogYourRun can help our users with their charity goals and for the month of August I will test what kind of response putting a link on the front page of LogYourRun will generate. At the end of August I will be riding around 350 miles over 4 days to raise awareness for Alzheimer's disease. This is part of the donate ( or take a look at the petition ( to see if it is something you agree with.

Calories calculated using METs

Sun, 06 Jun 2010 10:50:36 +0100

The calorie calculator has been updated to use the metabolic equivalent (MET) to calculate the calories burned during exercise. The calories burned are based on activity, distance, time, and weight - so all of those factors have to be present in an exercise activity for the log to calculate calories. Currently calories are calculated for walking, running, biking, and swimming.

Running log: using online versus Excel

Sun, 31 Jan 2010 10:54:38 +0100

Back in 2006 before I created LogYourRun I was training for the Saint Louis half marathon and using an excel spreadsheet that I got from one of my friends to keep track of my mileage and running times. The spreadsheet worked great but I quickly found that when training it is also very useful to keep track of pains and aches so you can correlate pain with the amount of effort put in. I also found that I often wanted to enter my data when I was not near the computer that had my spreadsheet on it. So I created a very simple online running log to keep track of my mileage, time, and injuries. This way I could see my data from any computer and I could visualize the data any way I wanted. Since 2006 I have continuously been adding new features to LogYourRun, largely based on great suggestions that have come from the users of the site.

iPhone application

Fri, 06 Nov 2009 00:12:23 +0100

The LogYourRun iPhone App uses the built-in GPS of the iPhone as well as the built-in accelerometer of the iPhone and iPod Touch to measure the distance of your exercise activities. By working both as a pedometer ( and a GPS device you do not have to wait to get good satellite reception to start your run - the pedometer will measure your distance when the GPS signal is poor.

If you are not using explorer you will still be able to use the previous two versions of the route tool (these can be accessed from the routes main page). In addition to updating the route tracing tool, it is now also possible to edit your saved routes and save them as new routes. Let me know on the forum if there are any bugs or additional features you would like to see.

Garmin Connect Import

Tue, 24 Mar 2009 00:01:14 +0100

The new series of Garmin Forerunner watches (50 and 405) as well as the new Garmin Edge cycle computers (605 and 705) can be setup to automatically transfer your activity data to your computer and from there automatically upload the data to Garmin Connect. To make it easy to import the data from Garmin Connect we have created an import function. This function requires that the activity is made public and involves copying the numeric part of the URL from the Garmin Connect website. The function will automatically import the type of activity, date, distance, time, calories, and heart rate data if present. In addition a link to the route is preserved so you can always go to the Garmin Connect site to take a closer view of your data.

Percentage body fat

Sun, 22 Mar 2009 00:38:44 +0100

The most common way of measuring percentage body fat is by Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA). This is an affordable but not so accurate way to estimate body fat percentage. To measure BIA two conductors are attached to a person's body and a small electrical current is sent through the body. The resistance between the conductors will provide a measure of body fat, since the resistance to electricity varies between adipose, muscular and skeletal tissue. Factors that affect the accuracy and precision of this method include instrumentation, hydration level, eating and drinking behavior, and the prediction equation formulated to estimate the Fat Free Mass. Another criticism of this methodology is based on where the conductors are placed on the body; typically they are placed on the feet, with the current sent up one leg, across the abdomen and down the other leg. Bioelectrical impedance analysis is available in a laboratory, or for home use in the form of body fat scales and hand held body fat analyzers.
