problem with the calorie tracking in workout log

    When I make my walking routes the calorie tracker is turned on and the numbers I get seem about right to me. I went to a couple of calorie calculation places and checked how much I should be burning, etc. The problem is when I try to enter things into the workout log. It automatically enters a number and it is off by some huge amount. Like a walk that is showing to have burned roughly 500cal is coming up as burning like 200 or 300cal. I tried letting it grab the data from my saved routes and everything. Am I doing something wrong there? Because the elevation tracking doesn't seem to work here I am already losing on my calorie counts as this is a city with a lot of hills. I know it doesn't really matter I guess but I find it motivating to see that calorie number add up!
