The running app I’ve been looking for this whole time 🥺

I’ve used so many different running apps and plans and have had a hard time sticking with any of them due to my inconsistent schedule as a shift worker. I’ve also struggled with how to incorporate strength training in with my running.

Runna is the solution to that. Although I do wish I could move some of the days around myself every week to accommodate my varying weekly schedule, it isn’t difficult to adjust your plan by the week in the app as you go.

I love that you can pick how many days a week you run, add a strength training routine (with fantastic workouts), and how personalized it is! My favorite feature is that you can sync the workouts to your watch and the running queues show up on the watch so you can leave your phone behind. Also they have some fun playlists. Overall I’m a big fan and stoked to get back into running from square 1 again after recovering from Covid with this tool 😊

Developer Response ,

BEST choice for the ambitious, consistent, and less-injury-prone runner.

I've tried several semi-tailored running plan apps and strategies. My favorite so far has been Runna, with Run with Hal as the runner up. I'm liking Runna better because I can actually use it in between races with its maintenance plans. I've never been able to justify a full-year subscription to RWH because there's not much to do with it between races, but with Runna it's useful every month of the year. Then the icing on the cake (and it's a LOT of icing) is that Runna auto-syncs my workouts to my Garmin. Then the Ice cream on the icing is the personal support from actual coaches. That alone makes the app worth it. Oh, almost forgot. The powdered sugar on the ice cream is that the plans get as ambitious as you want. I have a pipe dream of running a 100miler some day, and it's nice to know this app can take me there. I haven't used that feature yet, but I'm sure it'll be great to have some day. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to move a workout to a different day, but I figured it out. I do wish I could edit the workouts in Garmin, or at least make small tweaks in the Runna app. Finally, and this is not patently a pro or con, Runna has provided the most challenging training plans. Arguably not enough easy runs, but also arguably a great blend for people who are less injury prone.

Great concept, iffy execution

First off, the idea behind the app is amazing. I would still suggest it to people to use. I love the personalization and the detailed metrics along with the syncing feature on my Apple Watch. What I find a great amount of issue is the bugs within the app itself. Primarily, the Watch app. You either have to chose your phone or your watch to record your run. You won’t get as good of metrics on your phone but it will sync to your headphones 100% of the time. I personally like the watch due to the interval training screen on my watch so I don’t have to pull out my phone constantly when running. HOWEVER! My big big big issue with the app, is that the app on my watch will pick and chose when it wants to connect the prompts on my headphones (AirPods). When I’m doing interval that gets super frustrating. I’d really like the regular prompts to notify me since they switch every .25 to .10 miles and I always have to check to see if I’m on pace or not. However I don’t want to sacrifice the details of my runs and it’s really frustrating. There is limited options in the settings on the watch to make this work and I have not seen anything to help the issue.

I generally think if I’m paying $20 a month for a service like this I shouldn’t have these many issues to be honest.
