Track usage of shoes and other equipment by Endomondo
Endomondo’s tags can be used for many different things – to separate training and races, running on different surfaces or weather. They can also be used to measure how worn the shoes and other equipment is.
Runstatic recently released a new feature which allows you to measure how worn your shoes are. From what I saw, it is a great thing. You can see how many kilometres you ran in the shoes and how fast you were.
New feature alert! ? Shoe Tracking is now available in your Runtastic app! ?https://t.co/G8MmeJeQb9

The disadvantage is that it can only be used by runners. Endomondo has its own system that allows similar functions but it’s not as simple and it definitely deserves some improvement. Measuring how worn the equipment is can be done by a system of tags. You can assign unlimited tags to the workout which can represent:
- bike parts like chain, brake pad or bike tires
Basically, anything that comes to your mind. But there are a few catches. Tags can’t be added in the app and you have to enter them on the web manually. Normally, I tag my workouts once in a month because I don’t want to do it separetly, one by one. It’s great that I don’t change my equipment that much, so it is easy for me to remember what I used.
Display how worn the equipment is
Again, you can’t count on filtering by tags in the app. It can only be done on the web. You can do it in these two sections.
From History, you get a regular list of workouts, that you completed using the equipment. But statistics are much more interesting. You can select to view the number of kilometres ran and switch to years. And now you have to count the number of kilometres manually because it can be shown year by year only. You can also view the number of hours you used the equipment for.
Unfortunatelly this function is only for premium accounts.
Do you measure how worn your shoes are in Endomondo or in a different app? Which one? Reply
Race 1000 Miles Adventure 2015, day #1 – How it all started
1000 Miles Adventure is a 1600 kilometres long race for bikes, feet or kickbikes through Slovak and Czech mountains. Everyone is on their own – you have to carry your own food and drinks, find a place to rest and sleep. Racers have to follow a GPS path and have to hand all tracked data to the organisers at the end of the race, so they can check that they didn’t cheat. And this is my story of how I struggled on the road and faced a lot of challenges and dangers.

Race 1000 Miles Adventure, day #8 – How I coudn’t trust my GPS
The eighth day was one of the best in the race. It was nice to have some rest before the second checkpoint. I was told that the Czech part is harder than the Slovak one, but I have to say that the roads there were much easier.
