I have become a Runkeeper GO! user.  I upgraded my free account to the paid version when they offered it at half price after the recent rebranding of the app. 

I have to say, I really like this app.  I have used 2 of the training plans on it.  I trained for my most recent 5k with the Beginner 5k plan, and am currently using the Sub 65 Minute 10k plan for my next race. In the past, I have always self-trained, and have never included speed work or interval training because it seemed to require going to a track or figuring out how to use the modes on my watch. With Runkeeper, it is a breeze... I get an audio cue in my headphone that tells me when to do what, and I love it! 

While I haven't used many of the benefits that come with the upgrade, I have dabbled with the with the reports.  Aside from the reports, upgrading affords the following benefits:

  • Live Track - allows others so see where you are in real-time (you control who can see).

  • Premium training plans.

  • Prescribed workouts - schedules workouts for you based on what you want to accomplish and your schedule and ability.

There are 3 additional features available for iOS users - Goal Coach, Target Pace, and DJ... hopefully these will be available on Android soon!

  1. […] Runkeeper – I used this after I graduated from the C25K and before I got my Garmin 220.  I have found it invaluable for keeping track of my running and following a training plan.  I used the 10k and half marathon training plans that are offered.  You can see my review on Runkeeper here. […]
