Use the Cool Running calorie calculator to estimate the number of calories burned in your most recent workout. Various conditions, including terrain and temperatore, can affect the actual number of calories burned, but the calorie calculator nevertheless provides a useful estimate.

The number of calories used in a workout is based primarily on how far you go, not how fast you get there. In fact, there's only a marginal difference in the number of calories burned by walking versus running the same distance. If you run primarily for weight control, in other words, you'll find that running slow and long burns more calories than running short and fast.
