keeping miles and kilometers straight is already hard enough, but then keeping the "," (German) and "." (English) thing in numbers straight, too.... to much to ask :)

Also why not actually log it properly? Kinda fudges numbers really

Because I'd rather not having my log saying I've done 110km this week

Acampbell:
Yeah but it breaks it down anyway and you can play with the order the bar graph has so that the stuff you want to see is first anyway.
But then I’ve noticed most of EUOC not logging anything other than running so really just curious as to what the befit you thought was of doing so? Interested that’s all

If I have a week of orienteering, running, and cycling, then I wanted to glance at my kilometers and see what I'm on for the week. I can do this from the homepage without going to my log, so it's very convenient. Adding cycling distance into that means I can't glance anymore, and to know the distance I've run I would have to go to the graph at the bottom and estimate or add up my orienteering + running distance separately. This seems like more work to me than not logging the distance, but keeping the time since for overall time trained in a week I want to include cross training.

Acampbell:
Seems fair enough to me. I just like knowing my overall load. But then been forced to cross train a lot lately so that’s probably why.
Thanks for clearing up the mystery :)

Also so glad to see your out enjoying the british countryside. Stuck in Glasgow is a bit depressing haha

Yeah, but you put the comma in the wrong part of 1,797m of climb.

The main reason is cycling isn't training

Ye jeezo if you log cycling you need to have a good long hard look at yourself
