Run­ning bud­dies

Two in­ge­nious ser­vices that un­lock added po­ten­tial from your favourite run­ning apps

Runner's World (UK) - - Gear -


An ar­ti­fi­cially in­tel­li­gent per­sonal-coach­ing sys­tem that sources data from other run­ners around the world (over one mil­lion kilo­me­tres of data) and uses it to cre­ate smarter train­ing plans for peo­ple try­ing to achieve sim­i­lar goals. It’s Robo­coach. Con­nect your run­ning app or GPS watch, share some stats and Trainasone gives you a tai­lored train­ing plan to help you achieve your goals.


Web-based plat­form Smashrun helps you spot trends in all those stats you log us­ing a smart­phone app or run­ning watch. You get bril­liant vi­su­als of your run­ning his­tory and clever in­sights, such as the days you tend to run least. But that’s just the half of it: There are also the hun­dreds of badges you can earn for all kinds of chal­lenges, such as run 10 times at 7am to notch the early bird badge.
