Earlier this week, I completed the Belfast Marathon Fun Run for charity - a five kilometre stretch of road with riverside scenery along the way. My time of 24 minutes is average at best, and something that needs improving for next year. That’s where Ultimate 5K and Ultimate 10K come in.
In association with Olympian Jeff Halloway, lolo have released a new 10K version of ‘Ultimate 5K’, a running application tailored to each runner’s needs. The application features programs dedicated to those looking to complete their first 10K run (or improve on existing times), as well as a music-matching service that plays fast when you run fast, slower when you run slower (think of it like Genius taken up a notch). Change pace at any time, and the music changes on-the-fly. Of course, GPS tracking is in there too, as well as customized speed and walk/run interval times based on personal ability. The worst mistake is to run too far too soon.
