INTRODUCTION
==============

RUNNING is a program written for runners or joggers who want
to track their running on a regular basis. It is equally useful
for the casual jogger or the elite distance runner. At its most
basic level, it is a runner's log which records you run; that is,
its length and the amount of time required to complete it. For
the more advanced runner, it is an indispensable training tool.
RUNNING will track your pace per mile or kilometre. It will
track your average pace, or your best pace. It will produce
printed histograms of your training progress. I used RUNNING to
train for the Montreal Marathon and have included features that
gave me essential information during my training. I hope you
find RUNNING to be as helpful for you as it has been for me.

RUNNING has been written under Ashton Tate's dBASE III and
has been compiled using the Clipper Compiler from Nantucket.
RUNNING is copyrighted and neither the program nor the
documentation may be altered in any way. However, please feel
free to copy this program and distribute it to your friends.
RUNNING is distributed on the SHAREWARE concept. If you wish to
register your copy please send $25.00 to:

Thank you for using RUNNING! If you have any comments on
its use or any suggestions for its improvement, please let me
know.

Hardware Requirements
IBM PC
1 Floppy disk
256k RAM
1 Printer (capable of printing 80 columns)
Monochrome or color monitor

Software Included
The following files should be included with your
RUNNING program.

(** = Files required for RUNNING)
(## = Files created by RUNNING)
(%% = Files not essential to running RUNNING)

** RUNNING.EXE - The main program
** RUNNING.DAT - The data file
## RUNNING.INX - The index to the data file
## CONFIG.RUN - The hardware configuration file
%% RUNNING.DOC - This manual
%% READ_ME.1ST - Miscellaneous notes.

Installing RUNNING
To install RUNNING or to change the hardware
configuration, delete the 'CONFIG.RUN' file. Then start RUNNING
normally by typing 'RUNNING'. The program will prompt you to
enter the data drive and the type of screen. You must have a
'RUNNING.DAT' file in the data drive and directory in which you
are working or RUNNING will not run. You can, if you wish, use
multiple data files with RUNNING. To do this, each data file
must have its own subdirectory and the data file must be called
'RUNNING.DAT'. Once this is accomplished, change to the data
directory, set a path with DOS to the directory containing
'RUNNING.EXE' and run RUNNING normally.
For example, if you have RUNNING in directory \RUN and
the data in \RUN\DATA, you type;
CD\RUN\DATA
PATH=\RUN
RUNNING
Of course, if you are using a floppy disk system, this
can be accomplished much easier by using a different floppy disk
for each data file.

Using RUNNING:

When you start running you are presented with the main menu:

+= 06/27/86 ========================================= 23:16:32 =+
| R U N N I N G - M A I N M E N U |
+===============================================================+

[1] Add an Entry

[2] Update an Entry

[3] Delete an Entry

[4] Print Report

[5] Print Statistics

[6] Print Bar Chart


[E] Quit and return to DOS

=============================================================

Enter your choice (1-7)

Enter the number of your choice.


Adding records:

Option 1 allows you to enter a record of a run. Enter the
date of the run in the format MM/DD/YY, then the distance in
either kilometres or miles. RUNNING will calculate the
conversion from one to the other. Next enter the time of the run
in the format HH:MM:SS. RUNNING will then display the pace per
kilometer and the pace per mile. You can then enter whether or
not this was a competition run and any comments you wish to
enter. RUNNING will ask you to confirm that the information is
correct before saving it. You will then be given a blank screen
for your next entry. When you have completed all your entries,
simply press and you will be returned to the main menu.


Updating/Editing records:

When you wish to edit or change a record, use option 2.
RUNNING will ask you for the date of the run you wish to edit and
if a record with that date exists, it will display it for you.
You can then edit any of the fields presented and RUNNING will
update the pace per mile and kilometre and ask you to confirm





RUNNING ver: 1.01 Page: 5 January 19, 1987

your changes before saving them. If you wish to abandon this
operation at any time, simply press .


Deleting records:

When you wish to delete a record, choose '3' from the main
menu. RUNNING will ask you for the date of the record you wish
to delete and if it exists will display it for you. You must
then enter 'YES' to have it deleted or 'NO' if not. When you
have deleted a record in this manner, RUNNING simply marks it for
deletion and when you exit the program, RUNNING will ask you if
you want to permanently remove records which you have marked for
deletion. This is your last chance to change your mind about any
records you want to save. If you answer 'YES' here, RUNNING will
permanently remove them. If you answer 'NO', it will restore them
to the file.


Printing the report:

RUNNING will print the running report to either the screen
or the printer. If you wish to stop the report at any time,
simply press .

Displaying the statistics:

RUNNING will display a complete set of statistics to the
screen if you choose option 5. You will see RUNNING going
through each record and tabulating various information. then the
following will be displayed:

R U N N I N G - S T A T I S T I C S
=====================================================
+-------------------------------------------------+
| Total Miles Run : 66.1 |
| Total Kms Run : 106.4 |
| Longest Run in miles : 26.2 |
| Longest Run in Kilometres : 42.2 |
| Length of Average Run (Miles) : 9.4 |
| Length of Average Run (Kms) : 15.2 |
| Best Pace per Mile : 00:09:25 |
| Best Pace per Kilometre : 00:05:53 |
| Best Competition pace per mile : 00:14:16 |
| Best Competition Pace per Km. : 00:08:51 |
| Average Pace per Mile : 00:11:37 |
| Average Pace per Kilometre : 00:07:13 |
+-------------------------------------------------+
Printing the Barchart:

RUNNING will print a barchart of your progress. It is
available only to the printer and will print a horizontal graph





RUNNING ver: 1.01 Page: 6 January 19, 1987

of your pace per mile and your pace per kilometer. You'll notice
that it is not in fact a barchart but is rather a scatter graph.
Well, it started as a barchart and the name just stuck. (I
suppose in version 1.2 I'll change the name.)


Exiting and returning to DOS:

Always use this option to exit RUNNING. This will
properly close the data files before leaving the program. If you
simply turn off your computer, you run the risk of ruining your
data file.
If you have data problems, such as from a power failure,
erase the RUNNING.INX file and run RUNNING normally. RUNNING
will recreate the index and this clears up 90% of data problems.


Backups:

We reccommend that you make backups of your data file
(RUNNING.DAT) frequently. Use the DOS 'COPY' or 'BACKUP' command
to copy your data to a floppy disk. If you have a single floppy
disk system, use the diskcopy option to copy the entire disk.
