Your new personal trainer.
Made for beginner runners (who can follow 5k training program) and seasoned runners who can design their own programs. Please keep reading for details.
If you are a beginner runner, you can start with light combination of walking and jogging, later adding occasional speed running into the mix. Run Mate ships with 6 weeks program for beginner runners, designed by running experts.
If you are an intermediate and pro runner, use Run Mate to define your own training program (schedule) that best fits your fitness level. Split program per running sessions, containing any number of running sequences with these paces: warp up, walk, jog, run, cool down.
You can define pace intervals as short as 5 seconds and as long as 1 day.
When at the running track/path, start Run Mate and:
- pick your running playlist or
- create a playlist as you go or
- don't use music, app will run just fine without it
and start the run.
Run Mate will tell when you need to change the pace, what that pace is and how long you need to run.
(Use iPhone's default Settings app to set options.)
In other words, Run Mate will let you run with the music you like and only shortly interrupt to inform you about the pace change. Otherwise, it will keep quiet and out of the way.
If you're thinking of trying out one of couch to 5k programs (there's many on the web), this is the app to use. It takes less than 10 minutes to add even the longest programs like those 12 weeks long coolrunning.com plans.
And when you get into shape, you can add 10k, half marathon or any other program out there and run with it.
