My running watch says that I only burnt 30 calories on a 30 minute interval run. Is this accurate?

I am concerned that I am not running hard enough as I have been told that a true interval run is a mega calorie burner. I don’t want to mislead myself if I am not doing enough.

    I wouldn’t trust your watch. You have probably burned closer to 150 calories or something.

    You ran 30 minutes and it said you only burned 30 calories? Yeah thats way wrong, when i run i burn about 12 calories a minute, so when I do a half hour i burn about 350 calories. The thing could be taking the tens place off, other than that idk.

    You are going to use about 100 calories for each mile you run or walk, so you would have to have stood still for a while to only burn 30 calories in 30 minutes.

    If you’re ACTUALLY running at all, you should be burning way more than 30 calories. I agree that maybe your watch is dropping a zero. If keeping track of calories burned is something that’s important to you, you should probably just spring for a new watch.

    You can get some decent ones that aren’t expensive, and will be able to tell you how many miles you’ve run, calories burned, track your times…running watch can pretty much do anything nowadays.

    I’d check out a site like http://www.runningwatchreviews.com that has a wide variety of watches reviewed to figure out what will work best for you.
