Tracking a Jogging route

Monday, August 06, 2012

I tried tracking my route I jogged, but couldn't get it right as i backtrack over a couple streets.
My pedometer said I went 3 miles.
from what I could track on the Sparkpeople Fitness page it was a little over 2 miles, but as I said, a couple streets were missing.
Any suggestions on how i could get the route milage tracker to track my whole route?
What would be more accurate, my pedometer or the thing on this site?
I have a clip on , round, OMRON Pedometer. i always thought it seemed accurate, I had tested it long ago driving the route. Car is in garage can't check it that way. emoticon

    Thanks , both comments helped a lot.
    I track on site a little over 3 miles. My pedometer said 3.88.
    I wonder why pedometer is saying I went further?
    I have a short stride/short legs could that make a difference. There isn't away to set the stride lenght that I know of.

    I won't say how long it took me to go 3 miles. It is sad, very sad.

    I try to go faster. i only started back jogging about 2 weeks a go and missed 3 days because of rain

    Make the track as big as you can. then put the points .... for me when I went down coves I would put my first point on the right side of the road where the two road connect, put a point at the end and then a point on the left side of the road back at the beginning. That way my it would show that I went down and back up. And if you go one way then turn around and come back the same way there is a button that you can click. It's under the "build your route" It has "and back?" It will double what you have pinned, so you only have to pin your roads once. (took me away to figure that out.) Hope I'm confusing you.

    I had the same problem with my route, so I had to click outside the first track to make additional points for the route. But I think that there's a way you can click return route and it should route you back to your starting point.
