There are certain things that all runners know. Left foot goes in front of right; right foot in front of left, that sort of thing.
Something else all runners know is that the perfect running app makes it easy to track your activity while also helping you improve your times. For many, then, Runkeeper will be the ideal exercise companion.
Simple yet sophisticated, it tracks every metric you could want insight on – from distance covered and time active to average pace and route taken – while also offering bespoke training plans that will help you lower your times and hit your self-appointed goals.
And it doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner or training for your latest marathon, Runkeeper’s tools easily attune to your level and needs. Open the training tab and you’ll create custom running regimes tailored to your ability and overall objective, be it finishing a 10K or doing so in under 40 minutes.
The app doesn’t leave you to your own devices once you’ve laced up your trainers, either. Run with headphones and you’ll get real-time progress alerts piped into your ears while simple, glanceable data is available from your Apple Watch.
Cross the finish line and all this data will help you understand your performance a little better – sure, you might not have broken your PB this time but seeing the elevation data will help you understand why.
