Scheduling Issues First, let me say I don't hate the app. But the content is inaccessible. Upon entering a date I am told the date is to far out to start, refer pg 120? Or that it is already within the recommended time frame, and will show me nothing. 1. I would like to see the training program from the dates I choose a race. It doesn't need to come up to the current date. 2. If it's 16 weeks for the program, and I'm 23 weeks out. Why not set it up to start the first 7 weeks than back to week 1. If not, can I get my $ back
Needs update for 2016 dates! Great app. Both my husband and I use this app. We shaved off over an hour between the 2 of us following it for training for our half and full marathons. We trained injury free since there are only 3 runs a week. Challenging and focused plan.
Does What it says Took running up at 43, overweight unhealth. New to running and getting injuries. Found this, lost my weight and beating people half my age. Read the book as well. Running faster than i ever imagined. Distance and times sre continually improving.
changed my life for better... my first marathon time was as per the target the app n i set for myself.... i started running just over a year before... i was never into sports and was unhealthy before taking on running and using this app. go for it.
I'm hopeful the FIRST program will help me achieve my running goals, but the app doesn't really help. Unfortunately the weekly goals are a mix of metric, imperial, and timed distances which might work in a track setting but is hard to apply on the street with the available android apps. I naively purchased the FIRST app hoping that it would automate the running times for me, but was disappointed that the app has no live tracking capability. In order to utilize the app, the distances need to be manually converted into a consistent format that other running apps can use :-(
ButIt generates schedules just like the book. It would be nice if it could also give paces for track workouts instead of just giving times so I wouldn't have to do so much math to create training plans for my watch. (You can choose mph from the start screen but it'd be nice to be able to toggle between them)
