Ok, enough whining…well, at least for a day or two. Points well taken…gotta think long term, and not get thrown off track by a shaky couple days, which is what I want to do…have success in the long term. Anyway, enough of that, onto a cool new tool that might make you drool – (or at least be kind of geeky for some of you.)
I was trying to figure out the best way to ride from Keizer to Woodburn the next time we golfed at the OGA course. I wasn’t sure exactly how far it was, or which route made the most sense, so I started searching when I came across The Gmaps Pedometer, a site that allows you to plot points along a route and then get distance, elevation and other bits of info from your points. By using the Gmaps Pedometer, I could try different routes and adjust my overall mileage for the trip. Turns out, it’s a pretty good clip out to OGA at nearly 20 miles each direction, which may be more than a little warm up for a round of golf at this point.
I did however use it Saturday and Sunday to plot my two rides for the weekend.
The Gmaps tool allows you to save your routes as URLs,
so here’s my Saturday 24 mile ride:
and here’s my Sunday 12 mile ride:
So there you go. Curious about how far you walked, jogged, ran, rode, or drove? The Gmaps Pedometer site can help you find out!
