Introducing a homepage that matches your running and cycling speed! 🙂 The site is significantly faster now with the enhancements that we’ve made.
With the speed comes an improved layout. The site navigation is now better organized and paves the way for some exciting features that we’re working on. (Many of the items that were in the header previously you’ll now find under the new Community drop-down menu.) You’ll also notice two new feed filters on your homepage: one for popular entries and one to show you local entries. It’s now a single click to discover what athletes in your area are doing or to see popular entries from the community.
New Training Analytics
There’s a new Training tab in the top navigation with a new section called Analytics. In addition to graphing more data, you can now also group your training by week and month! Just like on your profile, you can hover over a bar to see the workouts that make up that data point. We’ve also placed colored markers on the graph to indicate when you completed your fastest, longest, most intense, and most commented on workouts. You’ll see the top 5 for each of these categories for the selected period below the graph.
The new training section is a work-in-progress, but it’s a feature we’re super excited about. Rather than overwhelming you with every single data point, we want to make it easy to gain insights into your training. We’ve got lots more planned for this section and you’ll see some exciting updates in the near future!
As always, we’d love to hear your feedback. Let us know what you like, dislike, or want to see added.
On another note, dailymilers just broke 3 million miles logged on Wednesday! There’s serious training going on. Keep up the good work. We’ll see you on dailymile.

Log onto dailymile and play around with it. If you have any questions or feedback – don’t hesitate to send us an email!
The New York Times is running a special section titled “Marathon Tech Review.” They are reviewing tech products every Friday up to the start of the New York Marathon. We’d love to be one of the products they review. Here’s a snippet from their first post:
“Each Friday, I will put to the test e-tools, gadgets and applications that aim to track runners’ progress and help train for the big run. I hope you’ll e-mail me your own tips, tools or other e-wizardry at email@example.com.” – http://gadgetwise.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/05/22/marathon-tech-review-nike-ipod/
If you have a few minutes, drop them an email them and let them know how dailymile has been helpful in your training. Thanks so much!
We’ve updated the people page to make it easier to find and discover other athletes like you. You can now view athletes who are competing in similar races, best motivators, funniest, and athletes logging the most miles. Friend and follow the training of other athletes doing cool stuff. Also, we’ve added the ability to view previous feed items with a “show more” button on your dashboard. We’re fastly approaching 1 million miles logged on dailymile!!! Keep up the hard work 🙂
Plot your miles, time, pace, and calories. Overlay your friends and compare your training with theirs. Find interesting trends in your training data and train better.
Did you know this year, as a community, we’ve run over 9 times around the world and worn through over 800 pairs of shoes? You can now track several of these stats on the new You vs Friends and Everyone tabs.
There’s a new social leaderboard as well. Find out who is the most inspirational, humorous, the biggest socialite, and who has the best karma. Other features include: a new dashboard design, calorie tracking, and the ability to export your training data.
We hope this new update allows you to better analyze your training and continues to make logging your miles fun and easy. Enjoy the new features, and let us know if you have any suggestions!
We’re excited to announce Google Maps integration with dailymile! You can now map your favorite routes and share them with friends. You can either create a new map by clicking the “New” link in the route section of your workout tab, or by clicking the Routes link on your homepage menu. You’ll also be able to delete and edit past routes from your routes page. Check out this sweet route I’ve been running: Panhandle Route. What’s your favorite route?
Also, If this isn’t already awesome enough, we’re only a few miles away from break half a million miles logged!
Thanks to all your hard work, we have officially passed 100,000 miles! This is a huge milestone and we’re looking forward to sharing many more miles with you all. Keep logging those miles, and soon enough we’ll be aiming for 1 million!
Additionally, we have new t-shirts for sale at http://dailymile.spreadshirt.com. A perfect holiday gift for all your training buddies. 🙂
