And This Is Why I Dig Endomondo…


I have written often about Endomondo, my tracking software of choice, and about many of the Challenges that I take part in. I received the following email this morning:

“Hi Jim

The month is coming to an end and we will soon be selection this months winners across the prize levels. You are currently at the gold prize level with 403.55 miles logged.

Don’t forget to log your miles no later than the last day of the month to have them count in this months prize selection”.

That should be well over 500 by the time the end of next week rolls around…

I’m currently in 8th place of over 400 participating local riders. Nationally I’m 864 of 24,342.

    That’s a really cool aspect of the app that you can see where you rank among other users ! You are killing it. keep it up !

      Thanks Sandra, and hour and fifteen minutes a day whether my head thinks I need it or not. Pretty soon your shaving your legs and telling people about it. It’s a crazy world. 🙂

        Well, I like your philosophy. . . of course, with one day off for recovery? (my coach would kick your butt, LOL) By the way, it’s a good place to be! My husband and I hope to do the BRAN next year (Bike Ride Across Nebraska). It’s just a matter of fitting it in. I knew once he got a new bike he’d forget about his 1983 Centurion!
        You are motivating, thanks for all of your awesome posts!

        I take days as I need them and I do try not to push hard every day – the days off just happen to coincide with the significant falling of precipitation. That ride across Nebraska sound like a blast! Enjoy that one, it’ll be something to remember.

        I definitely don’t recommend emulating me. I’m in the middle of a pseudo-scientific study to find out if it is possible for me to get burned out on riding – it’s going well, so far I’m at “Not a chance”.

  3. I have been using the Strava App, have you tried it as well?

    • bgddyjim says:

      I thought about switching because it’s a more popular app and from what I’ve seen the GPS tracking of elevation is a little more accurate, I just haven’t made the move yet.
