Strava Addict
Strava, for tracking and sharing bike rides. Totally addictive.

Anyone else have a fave app to add to the list?

Re: Strava Addict
I downloaded the Strava app awhile ago, but I haven't used it. I must explore it. For now, I'm hooked into the Nike+ ecosystem for running.

I'm with Dave Carr. I just hope the zombies never find my treadmill.

Is Fitbit too obvious?
What I like about Fitbit is that it tracks your whole day, and you can add activities to the diary if you forget to wear your wearable. For example, I can add a 30-minute, 3-mile run to the log and Fitbit will calculate steps and calories burned. It keeps track of calories burned vs. calories consumed, so you can earn yourself a little wiggle room for an extra beer or dessert while still maintaining your weight.

Re: Missing Fitness App
Thanks, Misty. Will check that one out, too. There are some great ones. I looked for newer apps, including apps that had been recently upgraded, which is one reason I avoided some of the obvious choices like RunKeeper.

Re: Strava Addict
>Strava, for tracking and sharing bike rides. Totally addictive.

I'm curious what you find addictive about it. As someone who spends a lot of time on the computer, I'm disinclined to do anything more technological when working out than start a music playlist. Once the time is up, exercise is done and I'm really not very curious about distance travelled or much else.
