FS has the calories-burned running at 7 mph as 1075 per hour. However, the treadmill at my gym shows it to be about half that. The question is: which one to trust Doubt ...

I have a Polar heart monitor/watch. And go by that. My treadmill shows a lot lower, but my bike shows higher. I just stick with what I have on my Polar. Find one and stick with it.

155 or less by 9/1/2014

May I be free to be the me that I came into this world to be.

This is a good tool to use for runners when calculating calories http://www.runnersworld.com/tools/calories-burned-calculator
But I would say the average is 100 calories per mile.

corifeo... thanks for the share. I'm sure many people will appreciate getting accurate figures.

Yes, thank you, Corifeo -- a very useful link -- and to you, ClassicRocker, for the advice. The figures on the website compare pretty closely with my Omron pedometer so, from now on, I'm entering my jogs as an 'Other' exercise. That way, I can put in much more accurate figures for calories burned. I thought my calorie deficits looked a bit excessive and now I understand why!

Hi Luckster, Ok, thanks for the technical stuff. Did not realize it was a facebook thing with the 'friend list'... I signed in with Google, and it did not ask for any address book or friend list ...

INSANITY!!!
Let's say you were uncoordinated, would Insanity be hard to follow? I have the hardest times learning new routines, I end up sitting down and watching but still not getting it.
