In preparation for a post about a very serious subject I am looking for a little help from my fit friends who use fitness tracking software. Rather than try each of the different apps out myself to work that into my post, I’m hoping I can simply use your experience with your favorite app to make my conclusions.
Now, with most trackers, they take weight into account and if they are like Endomondo, they factor that into their calorie burning equation. This shouldn’t be a problem for what I’m looking at so don’t worry about it if you don’t want to get that descriptive. Also, if yours is anything like Endomondo they factor speed in as well. This will be an important factor.
Here’s what I would like to know (please leave a comment or email me at BDJ[dot]fitrecovery[at]gmail[dot]com):
Which fitness tracking app do you use?
Which type of cycling? Mountain Bike, Road Bike, Hybrid, Commuter or running etc.
How many calories does it say you burn per mile during a ride or run?
What was the average speed for the ride or pace for the run? (or simply give me the distance, average speed and the calories burned and I’ll do the math – and preferably a long-ish ride 20 miles plus or minimum 5 km for a run).
I appreciate the help in advance. Thank you.
