Couch to Marathon
I bought Pear in spring of 2013. My intent was to get a little more serious about running and, more to the point, lose some weight. I should mention that I am not nor have I ever been an athlete and I am not remotely athletically inclined. High school marching band was the height my sports career and the farthest I’d run without stopping was about 2 miles on a treadmill in 1998.
So, when I bought Pear, my expectation was to get off the couch and, maybe, run a 5k in under 45 minutes. I started with a 5K training program and got down to 28 minutes. Then I downloaded 10K program and did a 10K race. Then a 10 miler. Then a half-marathon. In October 2015, I did my first full marathon. It took 5 hours and 27 minutes, but I’ll take it. By race day, I'd lost 40+ lbs. I also fixed my diet, joined a gym, and took up yoga, but my race training was all with Pear.
Pros: The programs take the guess work out of training. You know what you need to do each day. If your heart rate is too high or too low, it lets you know. All you have to do is concentrate on putting one foot in front of the other.
Cons: The program is subscription based now. It wasn’t like that when I bought it. That works for music, but workout programs that I use for months at a time? Not so much. So, taking away one star.
Good running app. Missing a few things
This new update claimed a better navigation but I still find it hard to find my way around. Not very intuitive. Why do they have to keep changing stuff for the worst?? It would be better to improve stuff like running summaries and show them on first screen instead of useless text and random picture. In my opinion, there are too many photos and not enough stuff that matter (description, stats, sorting...). Will add the last star when I can use with Apple watch.
Crash & Burn
Loaded new update, took out on run, program crashed four times. Patience is growing thin with this app. Are there a bunch fifth graders in computer class running this train wreck. Every update seems to create more problems. Website could use some work also.
