I used "running 9 minute mile". That matches the calories that my elliptical says I've burned.

There is not an option to record working out on the elliptical machine. How do you suggest I record this? I do half an hour and burn about 365 calories.

Elliptical machines are ideal if you enjoy strolling or operating, and in addition, they give you a total workout. They can offer an outstanding cardiovascular workout, and unlike many aerobic exercises some elliptical devices works both the upper and decrease physique at the same time creating your body burn up body fat and get a much better workout much more efficiently.

I agree, a custom field for exercise makes sense. My elliptical has five different exercise programs. My calories can vary depending on the program I choose and how hard I work on a given day. Calories burned per minute isn't even constant as some of my programs include running hills, sprinting, walk/jog, intervals, etc.
