Easy Half Marathon dynamically changes the beat of YOUR music to perfectly match your pace. Research shows that music distracts the brain during exercise and faster music causes people to accept and even prefer a greater degree of effort. This means you will work harder without trying (or without even feeling the difference), you will get better results from the increased effort, and most importantly, the time will fly by. You can also download 15 tracks of high-energy fitness music for FREE to really get your playlist pumping.
DESIGNED AROUND YOU
Whether you're looking to complete your first race or you want to improve your half marathon time, Easy Half Marathon has the perfect program for you. Your pace and Run-Walk-Run ratio of each workout is customized to your ability, plus Easy Half Marathon gives you complete control as you move through your workout. Turn the intensity down a bit when you're struggling or crank it up when you're ready for more, and Easy Half Marathon adjusts your workout — and your music — on the fly.
Easy Half Marathon includes GPS tracking* so you can see your pace and the distance covered during your workouts. GPS works best outside with a clear view of the sky. When you want to work indoors on a track or on a treadmill, use your beat-synced music to set your pace, and Easy Half Marathon will track your results.
Works with Health

What's New in Version 2.0.8
Bug fixes. If you love the app, please leave a review!
I love this app overall. The training sessions are great and I love that the music speeds up for running and slows for walking. My one issue is its way too easy to accidentally hit the blue bar during the workout, losing part of the session if you move it forward, or repeating if you love it back. With no way of getting back to exactly the spot you left from. It's frustrating to be in the zone and then thrown off course so easily. If there was a safety on that Feature to make sure you really wanted to change the workout, my review would go up to 5 stars.
Great App for running Practice
Having run alot earlier I started running again after a break of 10 years and 10 kg...
The features run and walk with synchronized music pace has been fantastic. My knees have not started to ache and its worked with 3 runs + 1 walk per week for the last year with both 26.2 and 13.1 mile programs.
The possibility to adjust music level separately from coaching voice level is very good.
The team has improved on the GPS tracking and provided lots of support when asked.
Soft talker ruins it
Great concept. Unfortunately, Jeff is such a soft talker that you can barely understand his cues-the whole purpose of the app. No tone, sound or haptic to cue you. Other issue is that there is no explanation about off days. Each week only has 4 days. It doesn't tell you what needs to happen. Am I supposed to skip days in between or run all 4 in a row and take the last three off? Really needs more support. Also the day bar is easy to skip to the wrong day. Needs an Apple Watch connection too. I guess that is intentional to make you buy the Jeff Galloway $20 watch tracker. I don't want to wear two devices. Fix these issues and it is a 5 Star app.
