I officially love my Driod.
And I just downloaded the C25K program app onto it. It’s amazing! I can (and did) upload my playlist onto it. So it counts down on when to start, then tells you “brisk 5 minute walk”…. after your five minute walk it makes this little chiming sound that lets you know when to start jogging…after 1 minute you get the chiming thing again…time to walk…. that kind of thing.
The chiming sounds can be heard over my music…. and on the screen it tells you how much you have gone (time ellapsed), how much time you have left (of that “round”) and how much time left for the entire jog/run.
You choose what day you are on… and start your music…. press start, and as it’s counting down get that bugger into your arm strap.
Best thing… it’s FREE!!!!! They had a couple of ones from the actual C25K website that you had to pay for, but I’m cheap…haha. So I went with the freebie!!!!!
I look a little rediculous (I’m sure) with this big hulking driod attached to my shoulder, but I don’t really care.
Not only that but I have a cardio trainer app on it as well (that I can use while doing the C25K)….. you press “start workout” and it tracks with your GPS….. length of time, tracks your route, distance, speed, and calories burned.
I love the calories burned aspect…. then I’ll know what to add to my calorie count…. but the best thing is that it keeps in mind height, age, weight…and all that stuff to be as accurate as possible!!!!!
Then once you finish your jog it’ll show you a graph of when your speed changed, when you were constant, if you stopped….which will probably be more useful once I get into week 5ish…. but yeah..
With those two paired together, it’s going to be great.
I’m horrible with guess distance and time…so I knew I was going to have an issue with estimating the whole 60 seconds jog thing (which I think is where I messed up the first time… I would get lost and lose track of my seconds…..)
So… yeah…. I’m all ready to go.
I actually can’t wait to use it…. it’s going to be super multi function…lol.
So I’ll probably start my C25K program all over… just to ensure that I have been doing it right….. we’ll see.
