That's great Richard. Are you Richard Sudworth on FE or do you have another nickname?

I am my alter-ego soapyFez on FE.

I tend to veer wildly between boring and stupid internet names when I register with sites.

<goes to look up soapyfez>


Great name by the way. :-)

LOL, Richard - "Sudworth" has gotta be one of the better ones!














What do you mean, "that's your real name"? Oops.....

Another option would be to use an existing spreadsheet with the new google spreadsheets server. You could then still access it from anywhere.

But, Foo Bar, you don't get hugs from a spreadsheet. Or messages of support.

A supercool running tool is www.runningahead.com. It not only allows you to log all your runs, compute your pace, and caclulate the efficiency of your shoes (miles per pound)etc,etc,etc but it also has a really nice tool for mapping out runs to get the distance covered and the elevation of the run.

Miles per pound? I'm not sure i want to know that,lol, it does sound good tho' Steve.

Have you tried FetchEveryone? Just to compare...

How excellent Foo Bar :)

I was going to be really blonde & ask for a link but that would have been too too silly

Arrgghhh - tool overload!!

Steve - runningahead looks very nice - good graphing but it wouldn't do what I want it too. Also, not quite sure about the benefits of having to draw your own route - why not upload like motionbased?

Here is my wishlist (to all the tool developers out there):

1. Garmin/Timex/etc upload of training history (like Sporttracks, MotionBased, TrainingCentre)

2. Ability to edit training history, like Sporttracks.

3. On-line community like FetchEveryone, runningahead, motionbased. With racing leagues, blogs, chat, racing history and planning, buddies, locator, clubs etc..

4. mapping with google or OS maps, like Sport tracks, memorymap (not TrainingCentre or Motionbased - eugh!)

5. logging of shoe use like, erm, most of them actually

6. flexible graphing like runningahead (only better) or Excel

7. recognition of laps like TrainingCentre (for some reason Sporttracks gets this wrong all the time)

8. ability to add notes like most already have

9. ability to save a training run as a "course" that I can repeat - like TrainingCentre

Flip that was ages ago, Blackers.


Was lovely tho'.

Blackers have you sent your list to fetch? He's always asking for ideas...I never have any, so you could make up for my lack of gumption.

:-)

Gumption?

Is that a word?
29/06/2006 at 00:28
http://www.answers.com/topic/gumption
suggests that it is: Guts, spunk {Scots} apparently?
29/06/2006 at 08:48
Thanks BW.

Gumption was also some sort of toilet cleaner i think
29/06/2006 at 09:26
My dad always calls Cif (formerly Jif) cream cleaner gumption. I think it is because it's rubbish compared to modern foamy spray grease dissolving things so you need to 'apply some gumption', i.e. work hard when you use it.

On the topic of running logs - am really missing having a list of favourite routes in Fetch. My old log let you pick a favourite and filled out the distance automatically, plus you could see your personal bests for each route.
