Taking up running? What could be easier!

Don’t worry about distance, pace, or speed. Let's think about all this later.
Listen to the instructions and run as you like.

Your goal is to increase the jogging time. Nothing else matters right now.

* Level 2 goal is 30 minutes.
* Level 3 goal is 40 minutes.
* Level 4 goal is 60 minutes of running.

I like the app and it's features, I've been using it since summer 2022. But once I got the paid version this past January, the GPS messes up so that by the end of my workout, it says I've only run .1 miles or 600 miles.. Not sure if it's something with the paid version or the fact that I switched from iPhone to Android, but it's extremely disappointing!

I paid the little bit of money to get the paid version of the app. The timer and pacing are good for me, keeps me going even though I haven't progressed from level 1. I also use the ROM Coach app for musculoskeletal imbalances that I have discovered while running. I'm a long way off from running a marathon, but at least I'm enjoying the journey:)

Nice and simple with no bells and whistles that get in the way of the features you need, but it hardly ever tracks my workout correctly. I'm about 3 weeks in and it almost consistently tells me I've traveled about 1 mile less, and burned about 150 calories less, than my Fitbit reports. My BF and son have come on routes with their own smart watches (one Fitbit, one not), and mine is the only one reporting this. So it's not like it's the Fitbit overreporting. I do also turn on high-accuracy GPS.
