Only a few more runs stand between me and the 15k race on Monday. I haven't raced a 15k since last summer so I have been trying to figure out what my goal should be. Sure I can add and subtract, multiple and divide with the best of them. But figuring out pacing times or adding running times together - I just can't do it. And then I found this handy little app that has been a life saver.
In my nice little running folder I have this amazing app which is so simple to use - its called Pacer.
This app gives you three options for calculations - pace, distance or time. All you need is two of the variables to figure out the third one -
To find the pace - enter run distance and run time.
To find the distance - enter run time and run pace.
To find the time - enter run distance and run pace.
It makes calculating times or paces for runs and races so much easier! I just used the "Time" calculation to figure out how long it would take me to finish the 15k if I ran it at tempo pace (7:10/mile).
Easy peasy....saved me from a few headaches of trying to add up paces. Its nice having this app on my iPhone so I don't have to be near a computer to figure out info for my run. What's your favorite app?
