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
You enter your basic information, such as your athletic prerequisites or goals, in the settings. They form the basis for the plan calculation. You can add new competitions, change your training days or enter training breaks at any time. The plan always adapts and guarantees the best training mix.
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.
Function of the training plan
You will find your individual training suggestions geared to your goal in a clear way in calendar or list view. The individual workouts are optimally coordinated so that training and recovery are in the right balance. In the calendar, you can move and add workouts at any time and document completed workouts.
Whether we are looking at a normal run, an interval training session, or a race; here you will find the information about the workout or the race tactics. Find charts with the most important information at a glance.
Description, goal, and purpose
Training makes sense only if you understand it. Here you’ll find additional information about every session: why should I do interval training? Can I eat in advance? You will find important information by clicking on your workout.
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 race you complete and then log is included in your personal race statistics. Regardless of the distance and the number of metres of altitude in the race, we calculate your current performance. The value of the anearobic threshold speed (ANS) and the maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max) allow you to compare the different performances with each other. This makes your long-term development visible. By the way, all statistics functions are also available in the freemium version.
Do you want to know which routes you have run or cycled in which time period? With our heat map, you can get a great graphical overview in just a few seconds.
Support and additional services
Log what you have trained and gain important knowledge about your successes and improvements. Either manually or through the automatic synchronization of your sports watch, Strava or the running.COACH mobile App. By the way: you can also log and analyze your workouts with the free version of running.COACH.
running.COACH mobile running app
With the running.COACH app you can use running.COACH when you are under way. Plan, track and log your training. Anything you enter in the app will be automatically synchronised with your online training schedule.
The running.COACH running calculator
The running time calculator provides you with a forecast of the target time you can aim for in your next running race. Factors such as the number of metres above sea level (performance decreases with increasing altitude), the route profile of the run and your basic pace are included in the calculation. In addition to the running time forecast, the running calculator also creates a detailed kilometre split time table.
