it might be right. i was burning a ton of calories before because my heart rate was generally in the 170s and 180s when i was running until my friend (who is a personal trainer) told me that i needed to slow it waaaay down to 145 because i wasn't increasing my overall fitness level at that rate. so now i'm going slow slow, don't burn nearly as many calories, but am hopefully getting in better shape as i go.
