The app doesn't track distance very well. I definitely ran farther (I have a set routine) in one session and it tracked me as running less than the prior. When training for a 1/2 marathon, it's nice to know how far you're actually running.
It's good to give you a daily goal to build up to the distance but I have ran all the walking elements in it as I felt it was unnecessary to walk after completing the c25k app
It eases you into running longer distances. At first you think run for 4 minutes, walk 3 minutes (or whatever) easy. And that keeps you running even though you kinda feel like you are going to die when they announce "half way". It's useful. You don't have to do anything on any calendar date. If you miss a day you can just carry on when you are ready but still have an idea of where you are and how many workouts you have until the race.
Recently I've noticed my phone's battery draining very fast. It turns out this app is activating in the background without me even opening it and keeping my phone's GPS on constantly. It's a good training app, but I will have to uninstall and leave two stars until it's fixed.
Disappointed that this does not follow on from the 10k app and get you running a half marathon. If you want to do it run/walk then I guess it's fine. Should have had a better description. Wasted my money.
