Picture Usage tracking

4:30pm, 11 Jul 2024
Today I've been working on providing a bit more linkage between the photos in the gallery and the places where they get used. As an example, here's the oldest pic on the site:

If you click the image above, it'll take you to the image page. And there, just above the picture you'll see a bunch of green buttons. These show you the places where it's been used. In this case I've:

1) attached it to the race that it came from (my first ever);
2) used it in a blog titled 'Gallery upload options';
3) used it in a blog titled 'Happy 19th Birthday';
4) used it in a thread titled 'First Race'.

The blog and thread links should take you to the relevant entry/page.

I think this will be very useful for following up on interesting pictures that turn up in the gallery. I often see gallery images uploaded by Nicholls595 and wonder "where the heck is he posting that?" :-) Now it's easy :-)

And all those pics that say "For my blog" or somesuch - now you have an easy way to go and read that blog.

I've also made another change today - but some people are reporting that it's not working for them. So I'd appreciate some feedback on how you're getting on with it. Basically, when you click one of the notifications that tell you there are new posts on a thread, it *should* scroll down the page to the relevant new post. Is that working for you? Sometimes? Never? Share your device/browser so I can see if there's any trend relating to that.

  • Looks like you've been busy on a few features. Thanks!

    One question, re pics, and not a request yet, do you store, or could you easily, the original photo filename (eg IMG_1234.jpg) ?

    Forum notifications? Sorry, don't use that, just the watch list notifications to the right of the threads (on a Windows 10 pc), which always takes me to the top of the page with the first new/unread post.
    4:45pm, 11th Jul 2024
  • I don't store the original filenames at all.

  • Great about the picture usage. That is going to be very useful.

    Regards to the forum notifications - earlier today I was still being taken to the top of the relevant page, but I've tried again just now and it is scrolling to the first unread post.

  • I heart this. I often browse the gallery and wonder where a particular interesting photo got used (if I can't work it out, sometimes I just comment on the photo itself, which I guess is OK enough). Now I'll know!

    The scrolling thread thing just about works, although it goes slightly too far down the page and hides the very top of the last post box. (I didn't have a problem with the way it worked before thobut.)
    8:20pm, 11th Jul 2024

Nice beats per mile graph

12:50pm, 9 Jul 2024
I've made some amendments to the *final graph* on this page (Training > Summary & Analysis > Heart Rate Analysis):

Warning - it's a bit of a slow loader (typically 7-10s), because the page has to comb through a lot of data to produce the summary.

Beats per mile is a simplified way of measuring your running efficiency.

Think of it like fuel economy in your car. It's the number of times your heart has to beat to propel you for a mile. You can run that mile very fast, but your heart rate will be very quick. Or you can run it slowly, and your heart rate will be much lower. Beats per mile aims to provide an overall measure that can cope with both.

Over months and years, your car may become less fuel efficient as the tyres wear, the nuts and bolts loosen, or your engine bloody eats itself just outside Wolverhampton leaving you stranded in the M6 services for hours on end, before getting towed home by a tow-truck driver who is multi-tasking by BUYING THINGS ON SODDING EBAY AS HE DRIVES.

But for you, this happens over the course of a run, as your muscles get tired and you get a bit dehydrated, hungry etc.

The beats per mile graph shows this drop in efficiency for the later miles in your runs. The theory is that as you get fitter, the whole red line drops downwards.

The old graph used to be a mess of 12 lines, each one representing the beats per mile graph for a given month. To make that more readable, I've changed it to provide an overall average - which (for me at least) produces a nice smooth red line. My first 8 miles are all in the low 1300's, gently creeping up, but by the time I get into double digit runs, my efficiency has worsened and I'm getting closer to 1400.

Beyond 17 miles, mine goes a bit bananas. This is partly down to me maybe doing a bit more walking at longer distances, but also because there's not as much data for me at this distance. To help illustrate the lack of data aspect, the green area on the map shows the amount of times I've run a given distance. There's a lot of green down below 5 miles, because I pretty much always run at least 5 miles, but this tapers away as the runs get longer.

I hope you like it, and that you have a nice day.

  • very interesting... thank you for this new feature! :)
    1:13pm, 9th Jul 2024
  • Great. Very useful.
    1:22pm, 9th Jul 2024
  • Interesting. My graph may be paradoxical. Sharp rise 1 > 2, nearly level 2 > 5, jump up at 6 ... then a steady drop until 10, which is lower than anything bar 1. 1102 per KM at 6, 1012 at 10.
    2:56pm, 9th Jul 2024
  • Do you do much walking/stopping on your longer ones?
    3:01pm, 9th Jul 2024
  • The longer runs are split between run-walks and 10K races. As most of the rest apart from parkruns (which are (checks) 22% of distance) are also run-walk, I think it is the running at race pace brings the numbers down. More speed = more efficiency.
    3:12pm, 9th Jul 2024
  • I loved this graph the way it was, I used to try and get my monthly line lower than the previous month, and it was a way of seeing which months my longer runs were in over the last year. Any chance of an option to keep the old one?
    3:43pm, 9th Jul 2024
  • I do like a good graph, and this is one 😁
    4:00pm, 9th Jul 2024
  • Podkin - I've added an extra line that shows your average over the last 60 days. Keeping that below the red line should give you a more-or-less equivalent challenge.

Thanks for the donation Jeff Bezos :-)

1:10pm, 8 Jul 2024
A couple of months ago, a bunch of you were kind enough to sign up to 30 day free trials for Audible, Kindle Unlimited, and Amazon Wedding Lists (!). Each one you signed up to earned some cash for Fetcheveryone through Amazon's 'Associate' scheme.

I've spotted another one today - it's the Amazon Music Unlimited service. It is (I guess) like other streaming music services - but if it's not of interest, you can sign up and then cancel it straight away (or within 30 days). Each person who signs up earns £4.50 for Fetcheveryone. How very public spirited of Mr Bezos. Here's the music link:

and if you missed the chance to sign up for the others, and have nothing better to do, here's the full list of links along with the bounties they command. Yaaaarrrr :-)

Audible Free Trial (£5)

Kindle Unlimited (£3)

Amazon Wedding List (£3.50)
(it seems there is no requirement to be getting married, to have a partner, or even to like other people)

Amazon Prime (£3)

Amazon Prime Video (£3)

Amazon Prime Video Channels (£3)
(I've no idea what the difference is between this and the last one)

Amazon Kids+ (£3)

Amazon Baby Wishlist (£1.50)

Amazon Prime Student (£3)

Amazon Try Before You Buy (£1.50)

Cheers Jeff :-)

F'laps 2024 is done!

9:46am, 7 Jul 2024
Or nearly. As I write, I'm refreshing the F'laps page every so often to see if Goofee will run one more mile to claim the Mile Division title outright, or whether it'll end with a tie with honestmackem.

About six months ago, I thought this was a great idea.

Then about a month ago, I thought "what the f**k have I let myself in for".

I guess my feelings mirrored those of Fetchies, because initially we had about 160+ people signed up, but for various reasons, there was a whittling of numbers. Holidays abroad were booked, dogs needed grooming, sheds needed tidying, gonk collections needed cataloguing :-)

Fearing anger and reprisal from our neighbours, we restricted ourselves to only inviting the local Fetchies to join us at Fetch HQ aka our house :-) We ended up with a small-but-perfectly-formed group of 8 taking on the challenge, and they turned up just before 9am in the pouring rain, but with spirits undampened. Loggerhead and Leatherback (they come as a pair; I'm trying to make Leatherhead happen) arrived on the stroke of 9, just as we were all shuffling out of the door - so there was no opportunity for a 'before' shot.

Everyone had a different goal. Rosehip wanted to start with the full 4.167, with the intention of dropping down the divisions later. I wanted to run 5k's. Leatherback was aiming for 2 milers. Loggerhead and Elsie Too wanted to run miles. Katie set out with the intention of walking each mile. And EdJ said he was just there for the bantz :-) I know that's only seven people, but more on that in a bit.

My first F'laps went pretty well. Because it was raining pretty heavy, I wore my stretchy base layer - this is excellent for making sure I don't get chafing on my nips. I tried really hard to take it easy, but fell into my regular running pace like a needle in a groove. I'd plotted a route round the village that gave me almost exactly 5k, but each time I had to run just a dozen yards or so past the house. I know I could have stopped when my watch showed 3.11, but I didn't want to risk falling slightly short, so my distances were all 3.13-3.15 to be on the safe side.

Finishing F'lap 1, I had to be reminded to check in :-) And it left me with 26 minutes to faff about. Given that most of my runs these days are over 10k, I was mainly *shrugs shoulders*. But with wet kit on, I pretty soon got a bit cold and dug out a hoodie. I'd already gotten a bit cold - so that was a learning point for next time.

F'lap 2 was much of the same. Same route, same pace (just a smidge quicker). But I got my hoodie on quickly, and had some crisps and a drink. In hindsight, I should have taken on more carbs throughout the day - but the crisps were nice. Elsie Too had also brought a melon, which was nectar-like. I retrieved my mock-crocs from the office, to insulate my feet from the coldness of the kitchen floor.

On F'lap 3, the rain had lessened (or should that be fewered?) but I stuck with the same plan. I also ran a few yards with Katie, who'd been encouraged to run for the first time in ages :-) A flaps win right there! And on returning, we had a brief moment where we were all together for an ussy. Can you see how much I struggled to get everyone in shot here? Katie had to bob and weave like a young George Foreman.

On F'lap 4, it stopped raining. I was still pretty wet from the previous outings, so this helped me overheating from the double layers. Got back to the house to see we'd been joined by Silvershadow and Nightjar. The former admitted to some FOMO, so as a group we cajoled her into getting involved (the flexible start time working wonders here). Her house is about half a mile from us, so she did her first F'lap going to get her kit :-)

On F'lap 5 it got quite a bit warmer, the wind picked up, my chest got a bit wheezy, and my legs complained. I have a bit of (maybe) bruising on the bottom of my left foot which I'm keeping an eye on - and it made itself known, as did my left hamstring. I got back to the house, and perhaps for the first time, I felt like I had a fair bit to do. I changed my kit entirely, opting for a vest this time. I had a toot on my inhaler. I attempted to stretch out my hamstring a bit. And I decided on a new route to counter the wind - running straight into it for the first half, so it'd be behind me at my most tired point.

On F'lap 6, with all the irony of a scrap man, it fricking threw it down just as we were leaving the house. My base layer was under two inches of water in the bath (to try to stop my stink filling the whole house), so I just got on with the run, and hoped that somehow my chest had developed chafe-resistance since the last 100 times I've chafed in the rain. The route worked reasonably well, although getting used to a different elevation profile at this late stage was a bit challenging. Back to the house for more stretching and poor fuelling. When the time came to go, I really REALLY didn't want to get off my chair.

On F'lap 7, I reverted to my usual route. The starts and stops (and the running bit in between) had taken their toll, and I was increasingly having to be careful for the first few hundred yards to give my leg muscles a chance to stretch back out to running. Weirdly, each of my first six laps were all slightly quicker than their predecessor. This was really NOT by design. I'd been trying to take it easy. I'd gone from 29:49 for the first down to 28:30 for the sixth. But this was definitely the end of that trend. My legs felt pretty dead the whole way round. The slight downhill of the third mile of the route did not bring the joy that it had previously. And I got home just absolutely ready to stop.

It was time to sit on the kitchen floor, and I made my mind up very quickly that I was done. I'd covered 22 miles, and I was really pleased with my efforts. I need to add an "I'm tapping out" button for next time.

Highlights from my route include:

1) the mysterious pink scooter

2) the unusable portaloo, strapped to a lamp post. I wonder if it had been on a stag night.

I think just about everybody in our group got something out of the experience. Katie ran for the first time in ages (having been focused on her swim of course). Leatherback ran further than he'd run for a long time. Elsie ran 7 miles which was a great achievement on her return to form after long Covid. Silvershadow ran miles she didn't expect to run. Loggerhead was so keen to continue that they were discussing scheduling a run on their car journey home in order to keep going. Rosehip left with plans to continue. And EdJ (who can probably outrun us all) seemed to enjoy his jaffa cakes :-)

Looking at the challenge as a whole, we had 49 participants. There have been some amazing performances. Various people reporting that they've gone further than they expected. Lots of people saying they're in for next year already. I am so pleased that it's been fun, albeit somewhat sadomasochistic :-)

I'll get on with making some badges when I am back at my desk tomorrow. But there are some winners to announce.

4.167 mile division
The distance is such that if you continue for 24 hours you get 100 miles. The hardest challenge due to the short recovery time. As such, there were only five competitors here, but theOtherRichard takes the division with an impressive 9 F'laps. Well done!

5k division
With 12 participants, there was quite a fight going on midway through the day. But CumbriAndy squashed the others by some way, starting at 8am and continuing until gone 3 in the morning! 20x5k! Amazing effort sir!

2 mile division
A much tighter finish amongst the 8 participants, and it went right down to the wire. Cheeky's Dad pushed on into the early hours to fend off the challenge from Gromit and win the division with 17x2 miles. Brilliant!

1 mile division
A very busy division with 24 competitors. There were four or five still going when I crawled into bed last night at about 9pm. So imagine my surprise when I looked at my phone this morning to discover that two of them were STILL BLOODY GOING. I thought it would end in a tie between Goofee and honestmackem, both of whom had completed 24x1 mile. But I got an fmail from Goofee to say that my code had been broken by his incredible efforts recording his 25th F'lap! And guess what, he's STILL AT IT!

If you want to cheer him on or congratulate him on his efforts, you can call into the F'Laps thread here: - although I'm tempted to say it's borderline irresponsible of us to encourage him now :-)

I am so pleased with how the day went. I hope it's a kernel of interest that will encourage more of you to get involved next year. Some folks asked about doing it on a Sunday instead - but the Saturday start has enabled people to continue through the night. I've added the event for this time next year - why not enter now and get wildly optimistic. Who knows where that might lead? :-)

    maybe you could prepare the next F'Laps for the whole weekend? ;)
    10:19am, 7th Jul 2024
  • Thank you so much for giving us this. No PBs or amazing achievements for me but it was fun and that's always a winner
    10:19am, 7th Jul 2024
  • It's been (and continues to be) really enjoyable. Those of you who did the longer distances had a far harder time than I'm having, the effect of reduced recovery time magnifies so quickly. I'm already looking forward to the next one! :-)
    10:28am, 7th Jul 2024
  • Fabulous! Thanks so much. Next time (oh gods!) I might have to figure out what training and eating should look like. Was actually looking forward to doing night time laps so will have to get further. Phys booked already for hamstring!
    10:41am, 7th Jul 2024
  • Thank you for organising this Fetch, such fun but my legs aren't so keen on you this morning!
    10:43am, 7th Jul 2024
  • I loved it. Next year I will start even earlier (6am this year) and may alternate between running and walking miles as next year's goal is to go from sunrise to sunset. Thanks Fetch for organising and huge well done to the winners!
    PS. Non-Fetchie friends all seemed to respond with the same word when I told them what I was doing 'Bonkers!' Yes, but in a good way:-)
    10:48am, 7th Jul 2024
  • Some outstanding performances :) I chickened out a couple of weeks before, but I've been quite inspired. And I don't get inspired by much nowadays.
    11:06am, 7th Jul 2024
  • it was brilliant, should have stayed longer - (I only got 1x2 and 2x1 done when I got home) Great way to get lots of time on feet and practice fuelling and the running again
    11:24am, 7th Jul 2024
  • Thanks for coming up with this and well done on your running. Although I only did five miles, with parkrun it's my furthest day in over a year. And since I've entered my first half marathon in eight years and this is training week one, F'laps helped me get off to a flying start.

    6:24pm, 7th Jul 2024
  • I really thought I'd only get 5 or 6 F'Laps, even with 1 mile. Got upto 14! My only issue was even though I uploaded everything straight away kept forgetting to press the button. Anyway of the code doing it for me next time Fetch? So many friends were intrigued and fancy doing the challenge!

  • I really wanted to do it but the little one had an MRI appointment come through which scuppered the planned early start and then a family visit in the afternoon meant a no there too so couldn't. Also in between night shifts for next year so it needs to keep going so that I can be in with a shout for the year after!
    9:21pm, 7th Jul 2024
  • It was the furthest I've ever run in a day 😁 - I did a 25 mile charity walk about 30 years ago but it's the most ground I've covered since then. And amazingly not too sore today - managed a swim this morning and a 3 mile walk this evening! Thanks again for organising and hosting!
    9:23pm, 7th Jul 2024

F'laps - three laps in

11:53am, 6 Jul 2024
Having good fun here. I've done 3x5k, and we have a mixture of distances. Nice to catch up with everyone after each effort. Stopped raining on the third one - but I kind of missed the rain.

There's an extra badge for the best F'laps picture. Post your pics on the F'Laps thread:

  • I do use strava as well but only because I am part of a Coros beta testing group. I get all my data insights from either the Coros training hub or Fetch. I won't pay for strava as when I joined it gave a free trial for full access, and it really didn't give me anything I don't already get from here and Coros. So there.

  • I’m only on ‘the other site’ because a lot of my ex-clubmates use it. I accidentally selected the free trial option earlier in the year and found that it didn’t really unlock many more benefits that Fetch doesn’t already provide. What’s more, the ‘Segments’ are clearly broken in most cases, with world record paces all around, so I can’t see how they provide much motivation to people!

  • Coveted kudos my arse - I know full well that people who following me don't even look at the training they just hit the kudos button and move on, some will leave the exact same comment on every piece of training I do and on everyone else's that they follow. That's not feedback or useful. I'm on strava purely because my clubmates use it and I'm really sad that I haven't been able to convert any of them to here even though many have benefitted from the routes I've mapped on here for training runs :(

Add A Race - Usability followup

2:58pm, 4 Jul 2024
I've just been through your comments on my blog from Friday, where I asked you to try adding races to our database:

The things that seemed significant were:

1) not obvious how to add events from the race finder page
2) not obvious how to quickly add a second distance

There are basically three places where you can search for races.

1) the home page:
2) the 'Race' page:
3) the 'Race Finder' page:

The first two just allow you to put a location in, and they lead to the third.

There was a big green button on (2) titled 'Click here to add an event'. But after your feedback, I've added another button on (3) titled 'Add New Events'. There was already a text link on this page, but buttons are always more eyecatching - good spotting folks.

And previously, when you added an event, you'd just be redirected to the finished listing. I've added an interstitial page now that gives you four options:

1) view your newly created listing
2) create a second distance for this event
3) create a copy of this event on another day
4) add a different event

Hopefully these take a few steps and a bit of the legwork out of adding multiples.

Another successful usability experiment! Thanks for your help everyone. If you've got any suggestions on what I should test next, give me a shout in the comments :-)

Cadence Filter - a little tweak

3:46pm, 1 Jul 2024
Last week I introduced a new option in the Splits dropdown when viewing your training entry.

The idea was that if you do, say, an interval session or a run-walk, Fetch can automagically break the entry up into its constituent segments based on your cadence. It makes graphs like this:

And that all seemed to be well-received, aside from the folks who run their recoveries rather than walk them. I'd used a fixed value of 140 - making the assumption that everything below 140 was walking, and everything above was running. But as I hinted at the time, I recognise that this threshold could well be different for everyone.

And as promised, I've brought in some flexibility. Instead of one 'Cadence' option in the splits box, I've added a bunch of them, starting at 'Cadence 130' right up to 'Cadence 190', in increments of 10. This allows you to choose the threshold. (Side note: the threshold you choose appears in the URL - so if you want to be more precise, you can achieve this by editing the URL).

I pointed this at Bowman's entry from the comments section. He did a Strides session (for the uninformed: repeated short bursts of quicker stuff in amongst some easier-paced running). In the image below, the top graph splits the run using 140 strides per minute - and tells us nothing. The second graph uses 170str/min, and like little hamsters under a night-vision camera, you can see the efforts standing out clearly :-)

There are still a few bugs e.g. zp reported that the cadence tool had "a bit of a meltdown" on this run: - I think I can do a bit of tidying here. Drops (or increases) in cadence that last less than (say 2-3 seconds) can probably be ignored. For now, it seems to be doing a decent job of pulling out efforts from otherwise faceless training entries - so I'm pretty pleased with it :-) But do share your oddities. I know you love it :-)

    4:21pm, 1st Jul 2024
  • Excellent.
    4:40pm, 1st Jul 2024

    5:10pm, 1st Jul 2024
  • Do share what you find!
    5:12pm, 1st Jul 2024

  • Good idea with the 2-3s ignoring rule. Had been wondering how it would work for slowing to open a gate etc. Impressive stuff!
    2:48pm, 2nd Jul 2024
  • That's interesting shall have a look
    3:03pm, 2nd Jul 2024
  • Working very nicely for me, when I find the right cadence value. I notice that in my recent interval session, the cadence distribution is prominently bimodal, with a valley between the two peaks – I wonder whether this valley, if auto-detectable, could be used as the default cadence value?
    5:12pm, 2nd Jul 2024
  • Def possible to use something like k-means clustering to find peaks - but I think in this case the flexibility is useful.
    5:41pm, 2nd Jul 2024
  • That's terrific! Now I'm wondering if it can pick up spots that are trips and or falls. 🙂 Not that I do that very often...

F'Laps Leaderboard - help me kick the tyres

1:48pm, 1 Jul 2024
Hello F'Lappers,

I've built a first draft of the check in page, and I need your help to kick the tyres.


Let's do a trial run. For the next few hours, please pretend you've just come back from your run. You go to the link, choose the distance you covered, and press the 'Check In' button.

1) If you're one second too late, you're out (sorry).
2) You can start doing the full 4.167 mile laps if you like, but if you switch down to, say 5k, you can't then go back up.

I'd mainly just like to check that it's all fairly self-explanatory, and that there are no glaring errors.

If you're signed up to F'Laps, go check in before the end of the hour :-)

If you're *not* signed up but want to join in, you need to register here first:

  • Easy to use. However, after my first check in at 2:51, I forgot. But I was still able to check in at 4:58 and 5:01 (very quick mile ;-) ). As per rule 1 above, shouldn't it have: not accepted my check-ins/ told me I'm out/ blown a raspberry?
    5:06pm, 1st Jul 2024
  • That'd just be rude :-)
    5:07pm, 1st Jul 2024
  • Erm i was intending to do it interspersed with Park run so the 8 and 9 am laps would not be registered until i get home as was intending to end up at park run shortly before it starts and then post park run walk somewhere on way back until it's gone 10 then run that 2 mile lap then.
    5:25pm, 1st Jul 2024
  • Have you got a phone, and 30 seconds to click the 'Completed It Mate' link at five to nine?
    5:27pm, 1st Jul 2024
  • In principle yes but dont normally take phone with me and if signal is dodgy (its a old phone) might not work, can be sorted later on if not working as the evidence will be there soon enough.
    5:28pm, 1st Jul 2024
  • We'll figure it out :-)
