There's got to be a better way to upload my run data (Read 179 times)

Brilliant


    I've got a really inefficient method of uploading my run data.

     

    I use a Garmin watch.  It's supposed to be able to upload directly to Runkeeper, but for some reason it won't - I've tried to troubleshoot without success.  So I have to upload to the Garmin website, then export to Runkeeper.  And now, thanks to the recent shoe-tracking thread, I know that Running Ahead has better tools than Runkeeper.  So that just added another step, exporting from Runkeeper to Running Ahead.

     

    Is there an easier way to do this, or am I stuck with this process as long as I want to keep both Runkeeper and RA?   (I mainly like Runkeeper b/c some of my friends use it, so that's more of a social thing, commenting on each others' activity, etc.)

     

    How do you handle tracking your run data efficiently?

      Skip the export from Runkeeper.

       

      If you can upload to Garmin, you should be able to upload directly to runningahead.

       

      So, it would be two uploads (one to runkeeper and one to runningahead) but no export from runkeeper...

        How do you export from runkeeper?  I don't use it anymore now that I have a garmin instead of the app but I wouldn't mind getting my data from there to here.

          You can get your information from runkeeper as follows.

           

          You can export individual workouts with the GPX file or you can export a date range with a ZIP file.  RunningAhead takes both of them.

           

          To do the GPX you look at the individual workout and click on advanced data and it will pop up an option to save the file as GPX.

           

          To get the zip file, click on the little down arrow next to your name up in the top right hand corner.  Then select "settings".

           

          Underneath your profile information there is a little hotlink down at the bottom left corner of the page that says "export data".

            Now I have all my Data since July 9th when I got runkeeper.

              Brilliant.

               

              I was just able to successfully (and quickly) upload to runningahead.

               

              This makes the 2-step process to Runkeeper even more unappealing.  I'm seriously going to rethink that one.

                While I am asking.  Is there a way to export from mapmyrun?

                Then I can get back to April- ish which would be nice
