When will the app be updated to be compatible?? I really don't want to change running apps.

Kristiel says:

I am grateful for the site still working. I'm hopeful that I can continue tu use it in the basic way I do. Thank you very much for not shutting it down.

Strava Export
Thursday, 24 August 2017 - Written by tim [profile]
For people who would like to try out the export to Strava please click on the exercise log link and type in "strava" at the end in the URL box. I know this is a little like a treasure hunt - but I have only tested on my own account and do not want to make this to easy to use until I get some feedback from other users that this worked for them also :).

logyourrun.com/runninglog/strava

Also, unfortunately there was no way to get the route information transferred along with the activities so the transfer is limited to activity type, distance, time and notes.

stampinmiss says:

This worked for me. Thank you. I appreciate you giving me the means to transfer my data since 2008. I will miss "logyourrun."

coachhunt says:

My data transferred nicely back to mid-2010. However, I still have back to mid-2007 to transfer. Is there any way to transfer just certain dates of the data. I was hesitant to just export it again because I might have seven years of duplicate data. Thanks for you support and the years of a great site.

rknutsonratto1 says:

Only partially works. 2015-2017 but only spotty data captured from 2010 to 2015.

And no routes populated and I can no longer even access my routes from within LogYourRun and I had a ton of routes I wanted to try to copy and now can't even see them. What happened to our routes?

ycmrun says:

Thanks Tim for building and supporting this wonderful site. I made good friends and will definetly miss blogging and logging here. I had logged my runs since 2011 and was able to export all of them to Strava. Kudos for giving a means to do that. Good luck with everything.

tim says:

I am not sure what happened to the routes but will take a look. Maybe those tables of the database crashed. Also not sure why for some the export is not full - I know that there likely is a 5 min timeout on sending data - so maybe if you have a lot of data the export times out. Starting over will export from beginning so that is not recommended.

chriscreene says:

Seems to have copied most of the data, but only the minutes and not the seconds sadly

topeka says:

I think my transfer timed out at 5 minutes. I got 750 activities but 550 older activities did not transfer. If you could make a "date" option for transfer I could get the rest of my activities. Thanks for trying to help us!

rob says:

I have data back to 2009. The upload screen displayed stopped at 10/5/2013, though the tab is still spinning like the page is active. I am leaving it just in case. Strava now shows my data back to mid-May 2015.
I am guessing the upload has died. Hopefully we will be able to enter dates to upload since if I start it over, it will double up a bunch of data.

tim says:

I will look into setting up a field for setting the start date before starting the export

Jim54 says:

The transfer worked for my data since 2011 with the exception from mid-April of 2017 until the second week of August of 2017 which did not transfer. I tried a couple of times but each attempt gave the same result

Jtal03 says:

All of my data exported perfectly with the exception of 0.1 miles somewhere in 2012!!! I think the folks that didn't get everything to export easily must've ran too much!!!! LOL. Just kidding. Thank you so much for making this happen for all of us. We're all a bunch of running data junkies and this has made loosing this website a little less difficult. Best wishes to you and your family and thank you for all you have provided us with Log your run!

heelstriker says:

Tim,

Any idea when the site is going down for good? Just want to be sure to download my logs prior to it and don't lose a few months or so.

cmccmc says:

Thanks, the export to Strava worked for a bunch of my runs, just missing a hole from 2009-2012.
I can add manually, but looking forward to a date bounded export which might bring them over if possible!

ceskoml says:

First of all, I'm sorry to hear that LogYourRun is going out, but I understand the decision. Best of luck in other projects!
Secondly, I tried the strava ecxport and I have a couple of comments regarding the export to Strava:
1. It exported my Runs, Walks and Swims without any major problems. It even positioned them in the correct categories. :)
2. Unfortunately it didn't export any of my Rides. :(
3. It'd be great if the user could get a some feedback after the export is finished. Something like: "Export to Strava finished. Successfully exported XX Runs, YY Swims, ZZ Rides."

Thank you again. :)

rob says:

Any progress to adding dates so I can transfer my older data?

I have enjoyed this site and use the Nike+ site too but I prefer this one. I do understand the reasons and wish you well and God's blessing on you for your investment in my endeavor for a healthy life. May your return be 100-fold. Thank you does not say enough so I say, Bless you.

tim says:

Thank you and thanks to all that have been using this website over the years. I have been lucky to share this experience with everybody.

tennesseezoo says:

Sad to see it go. Focus on family is the right priority. Do you know if a GPX export is available. Not a big fan of Strava and a GPX export would allow the moving of data to other running/cycling apps (can't import from Excel).

It's been 5 years...

I used to be a frequent logyourrun blogger. Looking back my last post was in 2012. However after having 2 babies my priorities have shifted. I still continued to use the excersise log to track my (almost nonexistent) runs. Want to say thank you to the person who handles the site, for fixing it so quickly. I was sad thinking it was gone forever.

strutton1313 says:

It's good to hear from you!! I used to post more as well but have just been l using the run log. It will be a sad day if and when this site dies. It will be like losing a friend. I'll keep logging and reading the blogs until that day comes.

chrissy1 says:

Thank you! It's good to see you still on and active. I understand what you mean. It sure would be like losing an old friend. Im going to try and commit to the blogs alitte more, in hopes of increasing my consistency with running. Fingers crossed

Tim's Letter
Wednesday, 16 August 2017 - Written by Kev500 [profile]
Thank you , Tim, for your letter telling LogYourRun users of your challenges with the site. Before that, I had come to the conclusion that the site was unmanaged and nobody cared. It is good to know there is a real person who still owns and operates this site.

I have used LogYourRun for several years now and regularly blogged and even shared information on the now mostly neglected message boards (Forum). So I am grieving at the thought of it going away. It feels like I am losing a close friend.

Perhaps I will be able to find something that will fill the void. I just checked out Strava, but was overwhelmed by the complexity (at almost 60, I'm not quite a Luddite, but I do find learning new apps to be a challenge). There must be a way to enter data manually, as much of my running is NOT done with my GPS.

Anyway, thank you again for all you've done on this site for the last 10 years. And for my blogging friends, never stop running until someone catches you past the finish chute...

Where was the letter? I have used log your run since 2010 and would hate to see it go.

Never mind found it.

Thank you Tim for the years of Logyourrun, a great app that does exactly what it says on the tin. Completely understand that priorities have changed but grateful for the time and effort that you put into it for all of these years. Also thanks for the suggestions about alternatives and your concern for our data. Much appreciated!

Not everything was fixed
Tuesday, 15 August 2017 - Written by Kev500 [profile]
LogYour Run appeared to have crashed and was down for a day. Unfortunately, they never fixed the route mapping. That is too bad. I always liked the simplicity of that application. Instead, I shelled out a few bucks to Under Armor to get MapMyRun without advertising.

Jrpincus says:

It was much more than a day for me but glad that the app is back. Though the absence of an explanation does make me feel that perhaps its time to i) back up the data; and ii) look for some alternatives.

tim says:

the route tracing should be fixed now

Kristiel says:

Please please keep this site alive. Even at a basic level. I just love using it

nyrangerfan says:

Agreed! Please keep it - let us know how we can help!

Men in Skirts

I had a great time running the Kilted Mile at the Portland, OR Highland Games last Saturday. I finished 3rd in the Masters Division, losing out to a couple "kids" in their 40s. I beat my time goal by a few seconds and, using the age adjusted charts, my time wasn't too far off my high school PR, especially if I deduct a couple seconds for running in a heavy wool kilt on a hot day. For a guy with no fast twitch muscle fibers, I am pretty happy.
