Coach Denise,

It's fixed!! When I go into the 5K tracker and looked at tracking 30 minutes it now says miles not kilometers. Thanks soooo much!!! Sure makes it a lot easier when you were raised on inches, miles etc LOL Metric still blows my mind LOL

Thanks again for all your help,

Joanne

I just heard from the tech team that this should be fixed now. Please take a look and let me know if you are still having trouble with it.

Thanks!

Hi,

There is no where on my account/email preferences to check either one. My fitness page has alway been set to miles. When i go to the 5K fitness plan to log a day, it may say in top miles, but when you enter in info, it says kilometers. I just put miles in but would think it should say miles.

Thanks
Joanne

Hi everyone! I am looking into this for you. By chance did you happen to use the metric system for tracking anything (there is a metric system box that can be checked in your account/email preferences page)? I am wondering if you may have had that selected at some point. Or have you at any time had kilometers selected on your fitness page? I just tested it on my account and miles comes up as an option, so I'm trying to pinpoint where the issue might be, so any details would be helpful.

Thanks!

Thanks Janet

I'm curious if I'm not reading something right or I'm missing something.

Joanne, now I'm confused, too. Let me check with Coach Nicole to see what is up.

Janet,

I did what you suggested and it was already set to miles. When I do the entry on the walking program, it still wants kilometers. I'm confused LOL

On your fitness page there is a button labeled "fitness setup". It will take you to a page where you can choose miles or kilometers. The only time the program should ask you to record in kilometers is the actual 5K which is 3.1 miles.

Hope this helps.

... to post miles you have to enter a time and a distance in kilometers. I had to find a conversion calculator to do that. Then on the training chart it converts the Ks back to miles. Maybe I'm missing something.
