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.
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:
