Google Now can track the amount of time you walk and cycle by your phone’s activity. It must deduct stopped time since my bike commute is 30 mins total each day. The time I had spent running must be included in my recorded walking time. Since I had run about 34 hours in March.

Update: I ran 37 hours 20 minutes in March according to my training log.
