My progress this month. Almost 8 hours, I’m pretty proud of myself!
Every Saturday I share my favorite links from the week. Do you want a chance to be featured? Email your best articles or videos to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Link Love” in the title and I’ll bookmark the ones I like to feature in a future post!
This month I’ve fallen in love with the iPhone application Runtastic and it’s corresponding website Runtastic.com. I’ve mentioned that I started using the 5K Runner application for my runs, well I use Runtastic in conjunction with that. At first I used it just to keep track of how far I’ve gone (it uses the GPS system to tell you how many miles you’ve traveled) but now I’ve found another use for it, motivation. If you sign up for their website as well then you can get an added bonus, people can cheer you on!
This is what the cheering aspect of the site looks like, I got four cheers during my run! If you are listening to music, the music will pause (like if you got a text message) and you will hear a cheer corresponding to the one the user picked. There is clapping from a crowd, horns, and more. It was great to hear while I was working it.
I’d recommend you guys try it! There is free versions of the iphone application and the website but they also have paid accounts (that I payed for since I’ve been using it so much) that don’t have advertisements and more features.
What were your favorite links this week? Do you like to use applications on your phone when you work out?
