What do you use?

What do you all use to know how many miles you've done? I'm guessing a pedometer.

Do you use anything to count the calories you've lost?

I use FitDay to monitor calories ect. Gives me good charts and shows me how I'm progressing. The free version online is good, but I use the paid version downloadable software. :) (PM me and you can have it for free!)

as far as calories go, if i remember correctly from looking at the treadmill you lose about 80 calories a kilometer running at 15.5 km/ph

I use walkjogrun to plot my routes, I'm sure that program comes in handy though ;)

Luckily I only live about a 5 minute walk from Sherwood Forest. It's literally more or less at the bottom of my street. When I go running in there, or just walking with my Dad and the Dog I work out other possible running routes for myself.

I use a Garmin Forerunner 305 it's pretty awesome. Measures and records speed, time and distance along with calories burned and heart rate. It's all done via GPS.
Unfortunately mine has just broke. Thinking about upgrading now to the 405 model, it's much smaller and looks more like a normal watch and less like a brick. :smile:
If you can afford one, get it, it has a virtual training partner for you to push yourself against.

I've been using the 405 for about 3 months now and it's a pretty decent piece of kit. On the whole it's good points out weigh it's bad, but there are still a few pitfalls with it. For example the new touch sensitive bezel that they've replaced the buttons with is impossible to operate when your running along and it still loses satellite comms now and then. I've also experienced software/connectivity issues and its still too bulky to use as an everyday watch, although this is probablly down to my weedy girl wrists.
