    I use Endomondo. It says I burn around 700 calories for a 2 hour walk at a brisk pace (12kms roughly). Pretty sure 500 calories would be much more accurate.

    I know, I tried using it, did an hour of cardio cycling, burned around 980 calories, I usually take calorie burns with a grain of salt.

    You'd have to put out 250 watts to burn 980 kCal in an hour. That's about 22 miles in an hour, on a road bike on flat ground with no wind.

    The apps I use tell me that on days I exercise I burn somewhere between 1000 and 1200 calories of exercise. The first 35 minutes of that exercise is on a Bowflex M5 at max settings for a 500 calorie burn, then the remaining hour is spent circuit training for another 700 ish calories. It's all based on a HRM, and I do not rest inbetween circuits at all to keep my heart rate at 120+ish (I power walk inbetween exercises/circuits) the whole time. My calories are calculated so that only 700 of those are factored into my diet, because I feel that is over inflated (I don't think anyone would disagree). My sedentary TDEE is 2000 calories a day or a tad more (I am 6'2" tall). So I eat around 2700 calories a day and maintain my weight which is around 180-185. While I do believe it is possible to burn 1500 calories, you're going to be very tired once it's done. I could not burn a real 1500 calories in a workout and then function the rest of the day, I'd be lying on my back at that point lol.

    I'm not a cyclist, but that doesn't sound ridiculous at all. Do most cyclists go slower than 22 mph on roads under such conditions? I realize that most are probably cycling in urban environments with lots of intersections and traffic devices, but this sounds feasible on a rural road (highway) without stop signs. Still, I'll acknowledge I don't bike, so maybe I'm way off here...

    for a reference point - for a semi-pro cyclist maybe - that is about a Cat1/2 racer - for most ppl, you would be looking at 14-17mph (for reference on my slow rides, I do 190watts and 14mph)

    It's not ridiculous at all, but a solid effort for most recreational cyclists.

    Anybody can hit 22 mph in a sprint, but we're talking about calories burned over an hour. So we're talking about endurance instead of just explosiveness.

    And you're right about where it happens. My fastest 40k (that's about 25 mi) was about 70 minutes, on a hilly rural road with no traffic. Stop lights in the city slow me down too much.

    Yes, that's fast.

    Apples and oranges here, but at Ironman Florida this fall, men biked 112 miles in between 4:34:46 and 8:12:01. The fastest guy averaged 24.75-ish MPH, the slowest 13.5. Sure, they just swam 2 miles, but they are on TT bikes (minimized air resistance) and IM FL is FLAT! (and has problems with people cheating and drafting... But the fastest guy couldn't draft).
    Also, on a TT bike, because of the lower resistance, you need fewer watts to go faster.

    I thought drafting wasn't just not allowed in a tri, but seriously looked down on, too?

    Wouldn't that mean you are effectively eating only 1000 calories which is too little? I've been estimating and my max burn is around 600 cals, and only if I end up crawling but hooray for interesting numbers

    The most I have ever burned in a single workout is 1400 calories. I am training for a half marathon and ran 9 miles in 1 1/2 hours during one of my long runs last week. This was followed by a mandatory 2 hour nap followed by eating ALL THE THINGS because my body demanded it. I do my long runs on days I have off work and I know I can schedule time in the afternoon to rest and EAT. I cant imagine doing it every day while restricting my calorie intake! I would not be able to work or function in any kind of productive way. Also, my body would break down in a week! If that is what you are doing - please be careful and take care of your body.

    Yes and no.
    Drafting is legal in ITU and Draft-legal tris. Drafting illegal in Ironman-branded events, and most others. Most people look down on it, but in Florida specifically, it's a problem. In most other races, packs can't form because of the courses.

    If you go on slowtwitch after almost any big race, there will be a bunch of treads complaining about drafting on the bike ;)

    In most draft legal races, you can't use a tri bike. Has to have road bike geometry and clip-on bars that don't extend beyond the front axle.

    According to my Fitbit I have walked 13km today and gone up the equivalent of 67 floors. My additional burn is around 800kcal, so unless the hill is mighty steep or you're very, very heavy, 1500kcal burn sounds rather a lot
