Little steps

I have been walking to improve fitness (and perhaps mental health).  An iPhone app Runkeeper allows you to record your GPS position against time and calculates your average speed, pace and “caloric use” (the latter based on a lot of assumptions). The app stores your data and you can review it on web site runkeeper.com.  It allows you to export the data (you go to runkeeper.com/settings  and go to “Export Data” ). A zip file containing the GPS data in GPX format as well as some CSV files containing some of the calculated data.

The web site displays the data in am attractive format. As an exercise in Mathematica I aimed to extract the data from the GPX files and “play” with the data. The graphic that follows is an example.
