Features - The most important functions of our training schedules
Reach your goals with running.COACHs training schedule for running. Our plans suit everyone, from beginners to experienced runners, for distances from 5k to marathon.
Training schedule basic settings and adaptations
Your individual schedule is based on your personal athletic abilities and goals. Your current level, your personal goals for competitions, and the order of your workout days are the basis for successful focused training. The optimal combination of specific workouts will allow you to achieve your goals. RC takes care of the planning of those workouts for you.
Running.COACH analyses your logged trainings according to speed and subjective perception and takes into account injuries and illnesses. As a consequence, your training intensities are increased/decreased, or you are offered a rehab plan.
Trainings from your GPS-watch can be uploaded directly into running.COACH with just a click. The application supports the following watches and platforms: Garmin, Polar, Suunto, Fitbit, Strava, runkeeper, mapmyfitness. After the upload you get a graphic overview over your kilometers/miles, time, elevation gain, rounds, heartbeat that has been run and your route on a map. As a Garmin user you can also export the trainings created by running.COACH to your watch.

With variation to success!
Running alone is not enough. Thanks to our videos you are always kept up do date about what kind of strength, running technique, footgymnastics or tone-regulating exercises you should do in order for you to stay free from injuries. You should regularly conduct at least one alternative sport parallel to your running training. We tell you how long you need to cycle in order to achieve the same training stimuli as with running.
Based on the data you enter, get substantial statistics with just a few mouse clicks. This month’s mileage? Average pace when wearing your favorite shoe? Not a problem, we evaluate it and present it in readable charts.
Keep track of your progress. Every running competition you have completed and logged feeds into your personal competition statistics. Indifferent from the distance and the metres of climb of a competition, we calculate your current performance capacity from that. The value for the anerobic treshold pace (ATP) allows us to compare the different performances. This makes it possbile to highlight your long-term development. By the way, all statistics functions are available in the Freemium version.
