Many of us listen to music while we run, but what about using technology to track our running data? These seven apps will definitely do the trick!
RunKeeper PRO $9.99
Available on both the iPhone and Android phones, RunKeeper is something I’ve heard a lot of positive feedback about on Twitter. It uses GPS to track your distance, and also gives you your time, average pace, and calories burned. Another cool feature is the online log.
The downside is the price, but if you used it instead of a Garmin or other pricey GPS unit, it may be worth it. There is also a free version if you’d like to test it out.
I like this app because it will give you a training plan and countdown to your race day. It’s the same as the online version, which you can check out on RunnersWorld.com.
Mostly the same features as RunKeeper, but also allows you to add notes to your runs and automatically retrieves weather information.
If you want to track you regular steps/mileage, this app is basic enough but tells you distance and calories burned as well.
A handy little tool that will give you your average pace after entering the completed or goal distance and time.
Gives you the same information as RunKeeper and Runner, but is compatible with the run mapping website, MapMyRun.
Though not technically a running app, DailyBurn allows you to track your activities and caloric intake. They offer workout and diet plans, some for free, some only if you purchase the pro version.
Have you tried any of these apps? What about some I might have missed?
