I import most of my runs from my Garmin, but sometimes I like to have your app running in the background when Im doing speed work and there are a lot of pace changes to keep track of. On all of the speed runs there is a warm up and then drills and strides with a quick walk before the meat of the run starts. I know that the drills and strides are a good idea, but I dont do them and probably never will. If Im stiff after my warm up I might stretch out for a minute but all of the other stuff tends to just get me out of my rhythm and mess up my stats.
Is there a way to take the drills out of the training runs so if Im feeling good I can just keep on running?
My other unrelated question is if there is a way to tweak your auto pause so its more sensitive? Sometimes if Im waiting at a light it will take 20 to 30 seconds to pause.
Hi Wayne: Thanks so much for your question. And thanks for training with us. The drills and strides we suggest help loosen up stiff muscles, increase range of motion, get blood flowing to the working muscles that need them. We strongly recommend that you complete them, as they play a key role in preventing injuries, and ensuring proper biomechanics, to help you run your best. They’ll also help you with the stiffness you’re experiencing. That said, the drills are not required. If you’d like to eliminate the drills, you can skip that portion of the workout by tapping Pause > Skip Ahead > Resume in the app.
Thanks for the feedback about the Autopause. As we enhance runcoach on the road ahead, we can certainly incorporate that insight. You can manually press pause and resume if you feel like the autopause is taking too long.
I hope that helps. Keep up the great work! Best, Coach Jen
