Truly Personalized

Unlike most running apps, VDOT knows you. It understands the type of runner you are, what you're training for, and how to maximize your efforts. It also gives you more control over your training, leveraging your feedback to deliver real-time data which fine tunes your training and leads to continuous progression. With fully automated, truly personalized and highly-adaptive training, VDOT helps you achieve measurable improvement — all in an effort to make you the best runner you can be.

Intelligent Training

With a focus on training over tracking and coaching over running, VDOT offers access to the highest quality, Olympic-style training for runners of all levels-right from any mobile device. Designed to help runners train correctly and more intelligently, VDOT elicits maximum benefit while reducing the required effort. These high-quality workouts promote healthy, responsible, and beneficial sessions while simultaneously preventing overtraining.

Olympic Pedigree

V.O2 was built from the foundation of a scientifically-validated training methodology. Based on former Olympian, author, and legendary running coach Jack Daniels’ exercise science principles, the methodology not only benefits runners of all ages and abilities when it comes to improving their running fitness but it also serves as the best measure of running economy across a variety of runners and events, making it an ideal way to compare performances. High-school, college, Olympic and non-elite runners have all trained, ran, and succeeded with the VDOT methodology.

-”Dr. Jack Daniels has had a bigger influence on training-for-running than anyone. He might be considered the Albert Einstein of the sport." - Runner’s World Magazine

The Adaptive version is like having a 24/7 coach. I have been using this app for a few weeks and it's perfectly customizable. It schedules per my needs and I can swap workouts or shift dates as needed. I initially signed up for the marathon training plan but the adaptive version is so much more comprehensible to me. I wish it allowed syncing the workouts ahead of time rather than when I start the activity (since I don't always have my phone with me).

Sometimes the app works, sometimes it doesn't. One time the app wouldn't sync with Garmin. I tried to use the resync and it gave me an error. I contacted support but that took days to get back to me and by that time I already uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Now today comments are not showing up for yesterday and today. I can go to the desktop version and see yesterday comment but not today. So now I have to constantly babysit this app to make sure it works so my coach gets updated.

So far so good. In the short time that I've been using training part of the app, I've been able to see an improvement in my overall fitness. The workouts are varied and adapt quite easily to any changes I have to make in my schedule. The monitoring of your paces keeps you in line prevents you from over training. It's a process but looking forward to the end result.
