It is not like any other running apps that you can see out there which normally boasts a lot of things but which actually do not provide much improvements in respect to results. As a matter of fact, the results matter very much in this arena and so those apps can help you achieve real results will undoubtedly be more popular than those that cannot. So now that you know the ground rules, it would be very easy for you to analyse such helpful apps.
Now we do have such a very fine app called My Asics which will not only assist you in the routine but it actually performs one step which is neglected by others, it helps you improve your time. Now this is not to sound mean but actually you will reap results if you could stick to this app. The results are not magical to say the least. These plans are prepared by the app itself. Now for this, you will have to feed the app with your history of performance. What this actually means is that you will have to provide it with the possible distance that you run in a given time.
Now once the app gets this data, it can make the calculation based on your current levels of performance and then it can help you set realistic targets that you can achieve with practice. After the target has been set, you cannot postpone the results, you will have to really run and meet those targets. What this essentially means is that you will have to improve like anything and then you will see magical improvement in you timing which was actually what you indented to achieve with the help of the app. Now I do have a word of advice: you will never improve just because you feel the app will help you. You will have to sweat it out there to improve.
