THE 7 BEST RUNNING APPS TO HELP YOUR TRAINING

There’s plenty of different running apps out there to help track your progress. We’ve rounded up our favourites for you to check out.

5k Runner- If you’re new to running and you’re not sure where to start, check out 5k runner. This app offers an 8 week program that introduces the user to running in a slow and measured way. Intervals are scheduled in 30 minute workouts, 3 times a week. As the weeks go by the runs increase until you’re running 5k straight and you don’t even remember trying. Great for new runners.

MapMyRun – This app is one of the most popular apps with running enthusiasts, and it’s easy to see why. The free version offers plenty of functionality, allowing the GPS to track your runs and record distance, time and splits. It links up with your tracking gear so you can input extra data.

Nike+ Run Club – A great social app that connects with friends, Nike+ Run Club offers excellent tracking features. The best part is being able to set your own running plans so you can work toward whatever goal you have in mind.

Strava – This app is absolutely designed to get your competitive streak out. Along with the usual tracking, Strava users have the option to record their data for Segments, or particular hills or straights that are worthy of pushing for time. Everyone’s times are available so you can push to beat others who are doing the same run.

Adidas Train & Run – This app is simple but great for beginners. Voice over updates on your progress are there to keep you motivated and you can review your data on the easy to use interface. This app doesn’t connect to Apple Watch yet but that doesn’t hold it back from being a very useful app.

RockMyRun – This is a crowd favourite. RockMyRun syncs curated playlists to BPM, meaning you never have to slow down or lose pace because the wrong track started playing. You can follow along with the increasing BPM, subconsciously picking up speed as the playlist rolls. It can also adjust depending on your current speed.

Endomondo – This smooth app is a great all rounder. It can record different activities, not just runs, and can help you with variable goals in distance, time or even calorie intake. It’s social and it seamlessly links up to a number of other apps and devices.
