Turning forty had one great benefit – a friend went a little overboard on a present and bought me a new toy to track my running/swimming and cycling. I guess that means I’ll have to do more of the swimming and cycling but given my age – that’s probably good advice anyway.
So I’m now the proud owner of the TomTom Cardio Multisport complete with cadence, heart rate and many, many other sensors. So far it’s working out really well – though just one run under my belt you might be better off going to find out more about it and how good it is from DC Rainmaker. Summary – it’s good.
That’s not what this is about. Because I will no longer track anything using my phone that means I’m limited to the sites that TomTom supports with their software. Typically that doesn’t include Endomondo – my chosen tracker. So, easy, I just take my data out of Endomondo and put it in Strava or Runkeeper or MapMyFitness? Nope. The problem is that Endomondo don’t see it that way – they think it’s their data and they don’t want to let go.
Fortunately someone’s (Michael Østergaard Pedersen) come to the rescue and has written a script that sets my data free. Sadly, it didn’t work. Rather than giving up and finding something else – I’ve updated it a bit to fix the problems. Amusingly – the problem seems to be that Endomondo have decided to get territorial again and put some counter-measures in. So I’ve updated the script and you can once again set your data free. I think this might be an opportune moment to delete my Endomondo account once-and-for-all…?
Get Workouts Download (since writing it, someone pointed out that Endomondo now run exclusively on secure connection so I’ve updated it again to cope).
