Well, on Saturday it was my turn to take baby Archie out for a stroll. My instructions were to exit at 930am and not to return until 11am. He was supplied fed and sleeping.
All I had to do was leg it around Marlow keeping him quiet for a few hours. I thought it might be interesting to track my movements so when I was half way down the road, I risked a pause in the gentle rocking of the buggy to locate and download Endomondo from BlackBerry’s ever-improving App World. Endomondo is free, light-weight and entirely brilliant.
I installed it, registered an account in 5 seconds. set it to ‘walk’ and pressed ‘start’. 4.7 miles later I arrived back bang on 11am. I then sought out Endomondo.com and boom, there was my ‘workout’ (‘buggy walk’) highlighted and route perfectly documented via Google Maps. The service itself offers a heck of a lot of flexibility — including the ability to challenge your friends.
If you’ve been looking for something to use to track your walks or sports, do check out Endomondo. They’ve apps for nearly all the platforms too. Thanks for the recommendation, Kip!
