I am training for a half marathon and I have come across a few things that are working for me and wanted to share. Before I tell you about my favorites know that lacing up my shoes and hitting the pavement is great without these extras, but since I am logging some miles I thought trying new things would be fun! A few of them have become my favorites!
Run Training Pro: This is an iPhone app that tracks your mileage, plays music from your playlists, gives pace and has a calendar to track it all. I used this before I got the Nike+ watch and I still use it on some days when I forget my watch.
Nike+ watch: I am really enjoying this watch. It tracks my miles and pace then I plug it into my computer and it downloads the runs so I can see the distance I have gone over the last month and week.
Audible.com: I decided for long runs getting lost in a book might be something to try. Well the first time I used this I did not want to stop running because I wanted to know what happened next in the book! I thought maybe my pace would slow down but it stayed pretty consistent…this may be a no-no for some runners but I don’t mind multitasking!
Pandora: If I want just music for my run I have been enjoying Running Music Radio station on Pandora.
