FS has the calories-burned running at 7 mph as 1075 per hour. However, the treadmill at my gym shows it to be about half that. The question is: which one to trust Doubt ...

I have a Polar heart monitor/watch. And go by that. My treadmill shows a lot lower, but my bike shows higher. I just stick with what I have on my Polar. Find one and stick with it.

This is a good tool to use for runners when calculating calories http://www.runnersworld.com/tools/calories-burned-calculator
But I would say the average is 100 calories per mile.

Yes, thank you, Corifeo -- a very useful link -- and to you, ClassicRocker, for the advice. The figures on the website compare pretty closely with my Omron pedometer so, from now on, I'm entering my jogs as an 'Other' exercise. That way, I can put in much more accurate figures for calories burned. I thought my calorie deficits looked a bit excessive and now I understand why!

Any Method to Edit Fitness Report?
try clicking on that activity in your exercise diary. It should bring up the specifics and allow you to change the time in much the same way as you can change the amount of food in your food diary.
