Yeah, those mapmyrun figures do seem inflated, and they don't pass either of two reality checks.
First, you can expect to burn about 100-120 calories per mile run.
Secondly, most people burn about 6-10 calories per minute on a sustained basis - 6 on the moderate end, 10 on the more vigorous. Somebody who was fit and really pushing themselves might burn 12-13 per minute - figures above this are not really feasible.
760 for 4 miles in 40 minutes.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
