I used the where did I go feature from SP initially. Then I got Runkeeper for my iphone but the GPS has been going wonky lately and was going to try some other apps.

Welcome and congrats on the distance/time.

You can try mapmyrun.com or SP has a mapping feature on the fitness page. You could also drive it to see the distance.

I personally use a Garmin 305 which tells me distance, pace, times my intervals, etc.

Hello, my name's Ashleigh, I'm 22 and have just started jogging a couple of weeks ago. So far I've been doing 25-30 minutes depending on how many walking breaks I take -- my route stays the same. Today I managed a whopping 47 minutes (by doubling back on myself to a certain point) which was awesome! I don't know what distance I'm doing unfortunately, do you guys use app's on your phones or anything? I know it's pretty daft but I actually have no idea how to accurately judge distance so if anyone could give me some tips or advice I'd be really grateful :)

I've found it easier to get up at 5am and go jogging when nobody else is about than go in the evenings when there is more human traffic, plus it helps kickstart my day like I never imagined possible! Never considered I'd be a runner to be honest, but am really enjoying myself so far and liking the challenge - I really want to make this a part of my lifestyle =D

Looking forward to getting to know other people who enjoy running too and I can maybe learn something from!
