Customer Reviews

Great app, perfect way to get back into form

I'm a 46 year old male with a 1:37 PR for the half marathon and a 40:30 PR for 10K, but I haven't been in true "running condition" for several years now. This app was a perfect way to start a rebuild from the ground up, without overtraining and risking I am prone to do. I am using this as my program to run my first marathon sometime this summer, 2013.

Also, Trish Blackwell is great. I had a question on HR zone training, sent her the question via Facebook message and had an answer back within a couple of hours. Pretty much the most useful iPhone app I've bought yet.

Fantastic, clear and helpful

This app is exactly what I need to train for my marathon; Trish's videos are motivating but more importantly, educational and are teaching me that I can be a runner after all. Getting an entire marathon program plus coaching tips is a steal of a deal at this price. Bonus is that when I email Trish w a question she actually responds back and is very easy to work with. Very pleased all around, my confidence in running has already changed!

Great app for novice runners

I have been focused on an aggressive weight loss program and using jogging as primary cardio program. I have established enough base to set goal of running marathon. App has good training program, easy to use and the video thoughts are very helpful to understand different topics and help build confidence. Would be nice if you could also track your program
