Happy Tuesday everyone!!
I have once again kicked the treadmill to the curb…I hate it, I hate it!!! I decided, what’s a little frostbite anyways? Besides, it’s a nice chilly 52 degrees outside!
Do you want to build a snowman? 😀
I’ve had pretty 50/50 luck with tracking apps so far. I’m DYING to buy a runners watch (got my eye on a pretty pricey Garmin 😉 ), but as with everything else, an investment must be save for. Boo.
SO…Until that day comes, I downloaded the newest of my curiosities, the Under Armour Sponsored Running app: Map My Run.
And I have to say…Bra. Vo!
Of all the running apps I’ve tested so far, this one BY FAR exceeds the others.
Visually, it looks a lot like the MyFitness App (I’m thinking Under Armour planned it that way lol) and since it is linked to the GPS in your phone…voila!
It works similarly to a Garmin, you start your work out and click/hold to end your workout. Then it maps your jaunt on Google Maps and gives you the stats including estimated calories burned, elevation numbers, distance ran and average pace.
You can choose to save your workouts and “journal” them to track you progress, however it saves a condensed summary of your run.
The only problem I can forsee is my battery life to my cell phone itself. With all the data and such these days, having the Location activated on my phone does some serious battery life damage. One of these long run days I may just have to test those limits!! 🙂
Hope everyone is having a good day and prepping for a weekly ritual: Wine Wednesday!!!! Which arrives tomorrow for those counting 😉
