I noticed recently that my “distance traveled” graph has large ups-and-down despite the fact that I do some sort of cardio regularly-walk, ride a bike, etc. It turns out that when I walk, I don’t enter a distance because I don’t know it usually and Gyminee records that as a “Zero.”

It would be very handy if there were a button that could “guestimate” our distance, if we so choose, based on our time spent doing the activity and the intensity level. This wouldn’t have to be perfect-but rather just something that would make our graphs somewhat more realistic and useful.

I think it would be better if we were able to trace the walk on a map, that way it’ll be more accurate and not just Gyminee’s “best guess.”

Oh yeah—I remember you mentioning that. Is there somewhere on the net right now with that feature? That would be nice.

I would suggest RunningMap. I use their product regularly and have always wanted to integrate the functionality onto Gyminee. There’s another post somewhere on the forum about the mapping stuff.

Wow—RunningMap worked perfect. OK, you can forget my request then, LOL. I’ll just use that until Gyminee incorporates similar functionality.

Yea, I suggested MapMyRun in one of my previous posts. It lets you zoom in a lot more than RunningMap, so it makes the mapping more accurate if you’re running on something narrow, like a sidewalk. Though their interface is a bit weird.

Sure, there are other tools availalbe, but it’s nice to make Gyminee your one-stop-shop for everything exercise and nutrition.
