A while back I wrote about Couch to 5K, an iPhone app that helped me run–you guessed it–five kilometers. I’ve graduated to a new app, RunKeeper, and recorded a quick screencast about it (apologies for the mumbling):
One additional point I should have made in the video: this app really bleeds your iPhone battery. I’m told it’s because the GPS is making a query every second or two to determine your location, and that requires a lot of power.
On a related note, Jen recently wrote about her favourite running songs. The three songs that, uh, bring me home are:
- Seven Nation Army – White Stripes
- Crossroads – Cream
- Voodoo Chile / Slight Return – Jimi Hendrix Experience
