Stuff I like: Dailymile

For my birthday in April I got a simple Garmin sports watch. I love the way it’s so easy to stop and start (which I have to do often as I live in London) but I have really been missing the nicely laid out stats that Runmeter used to give me.

Garmin Connect’s online interface just doesn’t do it for me at all but I didn’t want to start carrying my phone with me again, especially because in the summer the arm band for it can rub a bit (I have the quads of steel but my upper arms are chubby like my inner thighs :).

Today as I was catching up on blogs, I saw the Dailymile widget on Jen’s blog Two Itchy Feet. It looked cool so I popped over to the Dailymile site and 3 hours later I have an account, 8 friends and all my 2013 stats imported into it from Garmin and Runmeter!

I love the way I can also record my CrossFit sessions (last one in the screenshot above) and I love the way it visually presents the stats.

See the huge mileage leading up to Paris Marathon in April? – I miss those days!

The only thing I haven’t figured out yet is how to get the analytics for CrossFit alone. If anyone knows, let me know. From what I can see, the ‘activities’ list in analytics does not include CrossFit even though that label exists when you add a workout.

Anywho – if you’re on Dailymile, ‘friend’ me at http://www.dailymile.com/people/MrsB_00

If you’re not on Dailymile, you can see my updates in this widget that’s also on the right side of my blog:

    Love that you’re on it. It’s such a great tool to keep on top of all your workouts. Not sure whether you can get a CrossFit analysis, I’ve never tried. But will let you know if I figure it out (and you please do the same). :)

    So funny reading that you added this. Dailymile was a staple in my life in 2010-2012, and when I quit using it I felt lighter and happier. Its primary purpose is a social site, whereas I was using it for logging only. I moved my logging over to TrainingPeaks which I adore, as not everyone has access to my log now :-) Make sure to friend Brian Adkins on Dailymile, he is one of the original members and a great motivator.
