Runkeeper App Tip: Stay on Track with a Target Pace Workout

Let’s face it, setting a target pace and maintaining it throughout your run is an art. At first it seems easy—but before you know it, your mind starts to wander, or you get in the zone, and you’re either way too fast, too slow or yo-yo’ing between the two.

Wouldn’t it be cool if instead of just monitoring your average pace, current pace or splits, Runkeeper let you know when you’re running faster, slower, or right at that sweet spot you hoped to hit? The good news is you can with a Target Pace Workout.

These workouts will let you set a Target Pace, and whenever your time Audio Cues trigger, it will announce whether you’re behind or ahead of your Target Pace. To get started, tap the Workout Grid, select the Pace option and set this to the pace you’re hoping to maintain.  Check out the video out below for detailed instructions!

I’m not a nutritionist or a personal trainer, just a former fat guy with a lot of size 44+ pants in his closet. That’s not just a tagline I use, it’s the truth. My posts represent an individual experience that might not work, or be appropriate for everyone. But my hope is that the journey I’ve taken can jolt people into realizing it’s never too late to make a change and get healthy.
