Awesome Running Training App!!


I have been using this app for years now & it has been very useful helping me train for running events from 5k through to my first half marathon recently. I'm so disappointed that this app is now not working with the latest software update :( what am I going to use now?? Please fix this issue?? If not, is anyone aware of an app similar to this one (I don't like to run with my phone)?

Great start! Could improve!


I love this app already! Definitely could improve though. Would love to see a way for me to tick off the weeks or days that I've already done. Also, it would be great if I could see what week I'm in within a training period. At the moment you can see how many days you have to go before a race or your program finishes. But there is no way of knowing quickly how many weeks you've done, or what week of the program you're on.

Excellent app

XY Guy

A great app which is helping me push to new PBs and feel confident about my training. If you are honest with it (putting in real times, doing the workouts suggested) it will be great for you. Have used it for 9 months in 4 different races and the results have been excellent for each. But follow its advice, and don't overtrain.
