Running Favorites!

on February 7, 2013

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.

Happy Running!

  1. I like the idea of listening to an audiobook while running! I’ve tried to do a Couch to 5K program, and when I ran on a treadmill I looked forward to reading a book to distract me. But running outside I get bored and start thinking about how tired I am and how much me legs/feet are hurting. I neeeeeed distraction! I’m going to try this.
