We are super lucky in 2022 that we have the ability to use a smartphone. This really does help us on our running journey and there are a range of running apps out there to try. When it comes to running apps, there are two different types that can help you on your journey.
Does anyone remember when, back in the day, you used to measure how far you needed to run but and had to go for a drive to see the distance and then remember the route? It’s pretty great that you don’t need to do this anymore!
If you want to plan a route, we recommend using either MapMyRun or Strava. With MapMyRun, you can plan the route and distance on pre-run and also record your run by tracking your pace and distance. Strava is a great alternative, as it allows you to track your run and share it with your running friends.
When it comes to planning your training, there used to be two options:
In 2022, there is now a new way to train. The Coopah app believes that everyone should have access to simple and affordable running coaching. Coopah provides personalised running plans at your fingertips through a smart and innovative app. Coopah’s digital coach will create a training plan specific to your target race and time.
As you train, the plans adjust based on your progress, giving you the right sessions at the right time. You’ll also get access to thousands of running sessions and are supplemented with strength and conditioning, yoga and nutrition tips to give your training the winning edge. With Coopah, along with Strava or MapMyRun, you really are set up for success.
