Calculate your energy expenditure while running 

Running is one of the most popular activities of people who want to lose weight. Would you like to know how many calories you burned during your last workout? When you run, your energy expenditure does not necessarily depend on your speed. It mainly depends on the distance you covered and your weight.

Here’s the simplified calculation: multiply the distance you covered (in kilometers) by your weight (in kg). This will give you the number of calories burned. The tool below lets you calculate your energy expenditure directly in miles and pounds.
