    Does anybody know of a calorie calculator which is based on the speed and the duration of the running?

    One note about this. The reason I haven’t implemented one of these calculators is that it’s pretty much impossible to calculate anything but a very rough estimate. This one seems to be better than many I have seen because it takes pace into account and not just weight and time/distance. However, there are still other variables such as running efficiency (the more efficient you are, the fewer calories you will burn) that can fairly significantly affect these numbers and can’t be quantified and entered into an online calculator.
