Thanks for all this insight. Now just to work it all out.
I have no idea how many calories I am buring, after I posed that I worked out how to add the milage tracker and I end up adding it that way, it basicaly cut down 300calories from what the previous calculations were. (guess I had the worng speed in there or somthing) That just really confused me even more. How many calories am I buring? How can I get a bit more of an exact account. I know it is all guessing work and averages, but that is what makes it so hard for me it seems like every where I go to calculate it gives me total differnt values.
For exampel for todays run
Sparkpeople milage tracker : 108
Nike+ : 524
Map my run : 633
both nike+ and map my run know my waight so why are they so much higher. what is the correct amount. Those 2 are closer compared to sparkpeople. This is waht is confusing me.
Currently I am trying to run just over 5ks evey second day (10min warm up, 1 min walk, 2 min run, then cool down till I get home, I will up the running by a min each week, but keep the distance the same for now, later on when I am fitter and faster try and keep it around 45min run)
and then I'm also doing this
Though quite modified. It takes me about 20-30 mins at night while watching TV. I take it easy doing that. So it is diffently somthign I can keep up over a longer period of time.
My Program Setup looks about like this
strength training days (meaning that link from above) 7 days 30 mins
cadio training days 4days 50 mins
What is about right for waht I am doing. Though right now it is summer so I am speending more time at the pools. Swimming and playing in the water with the kids. I also walk there most of the time what is a 1.5k walk there and then back again.
