Stock Music Player & Music Player Remix every day while going to the office by bicycle.

I also use the Music Player (Remix) and MojoTracker for tracking any inline skating or large bicycle distances I do It's great in combination with the SmartRunner website to get a visual of the trajectory I completed.

I can't wait for spring to start and roads to get dry again, so I can start my long distance inline skating again. Did some 40-60 km trips last year and I really liked it

Unfortunately SmartRunner stopped support for their webOS app and it doesn't work on 2.2.4 anymore, only on 2.1.2 so I cannot use their app which was an even nicer approach. I might actually try and patch SmartRunner to see if I can get it working on 2.2.4 again sometime in the future

I exercise almost daily. If I am not swimming I use pReader to read on the bike or elliptical. But, I also stretch every morning and use Yoga Pal to set up my routines. Too bad it is not HD for my Touchpad.

I don't plan on exercising. I need to though. I've ballooned to 135 lbs.

My midweek workout consists of 20-30 minutes on the treadmill (powerwalking a 5 degree incline with 5 lb free weights), resistance band training (upper body), and two sets of 30 of 6 different exercises on a leg, back, and abs resistance trainer. My challenge is keeping my mind occupied so that I don't get bored and give up. I do this with audio podcasts on my Pre3 and video netcasts/TV shows/movies on my TP. No exercise apps, but it helps me get the job done each week.

This past weekend I completed the Kaiser SF Half Marathon. I used FitTrack on my Pre3 to record my training progress. Also use stock music player for running and biking playlists.

Unfortunately, I find that during my travels, unnecessary battery drain is unacceptable, so I don't actually have any music loaded on my Pre3. Looking for suggestions for apps to use and ways to use them (other than the articles already posted on the front page recently, like real life stories ), though.

I'm sitting at 191.2 today, and that's going to change. That's going to change hardcore.
I do wish fitness month were during WARM WEATHER though. On the bright side, I'll be in Cali for most of this month, probably, so it'll be considerably warmer than our frozen arctic tundra like weather here in Det.

I use FitTrack for my street cycling, listening to music remix. I use MapTool while mountain biking to track my route, gives me a breadcrumb trail to get back. I'm making a mount using a Krusell bicycle mount and a Treo case to mount my Pre 3 on my handlebars to videotape my rides.

I use JogStats on my Pre3 for tracking my bicycle tours.
In combination with the Music Player Remix and my jawbone era headset my webOS-device is the best daily companion i ever had.
