New Feature: Workout Tagging

iPhone-screens-v2

To all the gear and stats geeks – you can go crazy and tag your workouts as you like with customized workout tags. That means that you can keep track of your total mileage done with your sportsgear, what surface you track on, or anything else you can think of.

How does workout tagging work?
You can tag your workouts by using the ”Add a tag” field on the Workout page at Endomondo.com, or you can use a #hashtag in the Title, Notes or Social Status Update when you fill in these.

Let’s say you go for a trail run in your new shoes, and you want to keep track of your total mileage in those shoes. Then right in the app (Android, iPhone and BlackBerry 10), after hitting stop, you can use the Social Status Update field and add custom tags like: “First #trailrun in my new #Speedcross3 shoes – very good grip.” Then #trailrun and #Speedcross3 will be tagged on the workout (check out the screenshot), which you can see when you look at the workout at Endomondo.com.

As a Premium member, you also get the option to filter and see statistics for your tags at Endomondo.com. At the Statistics page you can filter your stats based on the tags you have added to your workouts, to see e.g. total mileage put in your running shoes, total duration biked with a chain, personal best development when doing trailrunning, or something else you have tagged and want to track.

In the History list view you can search for workouts with specific tags for quick access and comparison of these workouts. See more info here.

Go tagging!

    It’s ironic how your example uses a post about trail running. We have been asking that “Trail Running” be added as a unique sport. Please consider adding it soon. It is very different from the sport of “Running”. Thanks!

      Blair, how is running on a trail different from running? What happens when I run on a road to get to a trail, then run back on roads? I’ve still ran several km just on different ground.

      • I’m guessing that you are not a regular long distance trail runner, Ben. When you run on trails your pace is slower due to the uneven terrain, and the various obstacles you encounter such as roots, rocks and sticks. If you keep the same pace on a trail and a road, your level of effort will definitely be higher on the trail. The difference will be determined by the difficulty of the trail. Things like creek crossings, and hill climbs also come into play when trail running. I think we trail runners just want a way to differentiate those types of runs from a run on roads or paved pathways. The answer to your second question depends on the individual runner and how they use Endomondo. Personally, if I ran to a trail head on the road and then ran a substantial distance on the trail, I’d log it as a trail run. If the road portion was longer, it would be logged as a road run.

        I’m a little late but trail running is not the same – I’m a distance runner and my pace is different on the trail – ran one trail race and humbled myself to the trails – much respect to Blair and all the trail runners – while the distance is the same, the endurance differs!

    Apparently the tags you have used is saved as history. This is good, but also very irritating if you accidently misspelled a word etc. Is there any way to clear that list to only show relevant tags?

      I would love to be able to remove unwanted tags too. I have a rogue ‘Mizunu’ which drives me nuts!

    Couldn’t agree more. That’s great Endo – after a year or more of comments and perfectly rational and reasonable requests from a LARGE GLOBAL community of trail runners, we get that illogical, irrational and unreasonable reply.

    Seriously, how hard can it be to create another category? I don’t want to comment on a trail run after every run to clarify that I wasn’t crawling along the road.

    In fact, maybe its time to switch to another app.

    Has the tagging system been modified recently? It no longer shows the “#” symbol to newly tagged workouts – this is a major pain as old workouts are now differentiated from new workouts despite having the same name simply due to the # sign. Also it seems to not allow decimals in the tag anymore so for example workouts can no longer be tagged “23.1 miles”. Is anyone else having these issues?
