So, my training has sort of officially started and I’ve had my first 2 donations. Thanks for those!!!
My programme actually starts next week but today was my first run since I signed up to run the half marathon for Christian Aid.
I’m trying out the Adidas miCoach app on my iPhone. I’ve been using the Nike+ system for a while, first on my iPod then the GPS app on my iPhone. Nike+ is good for keeping a record of your runs but it won’t allow you to download a training programme to your phone. The Adidas miCoach app does.
I’m going to use both Nike+ and Adidas miCoach. I’ll use my iPod for Nike+ and my iPhone for Adidas miCoach.
My first impression of miCoach is good. I like the app. It’s easy to navigate and get going. The Website is nice, clean and easy to find your way around. The only thing I don’t like is the automated voice that gives you in-run updates. It sounds really robotic. The upside is that Andy Murray does the end stats. I wonder if he’s going to shout ‘C’mon’ and ‘Focus’ at me while I train? I do hope so!
