Thanks for both replies. I'm waiting for my tax refund to get a heart rate monitor. Seems like a very valuable investment.

Patricia, logging intervals isn't easy because there is too much variation from person to person when it comes to calorie burn. if you know the calorie read out from the treadmill you were using, you can manually enter that number into the tracker.

There's a button called "manually enter calories burned" on the page that pops up after you click on the add cardio button.

Hi PATRICIAANN74,

As you discovered it's difficult to track interval training because of the breakdown in pace, incline, etc. A few option to use are a general aerobic feature or in the best case scenario consider investing in a heart rate monitor that tracks calories burn and then you can manually enter in the calories burn that way. Just remember though all calorie calculators are just estimates of calories burn--even a heart rate monitor.

I hope this helps!

I switch up both speed and incline on the treadmill. The fitness activity list has lots of options, such as 5% at 3 mph or 10% at 6 mph, but there no options for intervals. It's not like I know how many minutes I spend on each speed or incline. I just push myself as hard as I can and slow down/reduce incline when I feel like I absolutely can't do anymore.
