How to track distance/time?

I've just completed Week 6 and have been so focussed on 'getting through the plan' that I didn't think about speed or distance!

Now that Laura told me 'I'm a runner😜'...thought I would start to track distance and wondered what apps people use.

As always advice much appreciated x

I've just started to use Map My Run, it's quite basic, but does all you need at this stage, measures time and distance, shows your route and keeps a log so you can see your improvement (well I'm still working on that ..... 😊)

My son told me about runkeeper & I really like it much the same as map my run but I can follow my son as well! Good for encouragement as tells you when you have done your longest run or times😊

I've tried both Strava and Endomondo - both free, both good but on the whole I prefer Strava. You can run the app on a smartphone and sync it with a PC if you want to.

A "Runner", IS ABLE to Run for a LONG PERIOD of TIME (5 min ??) !!

A "Runner", Runs FOR the JOY of the RUNNING !!

A "Runner", UNDERSTANDS what "Pace" IS !!

>>> "Distance" and "Speeds" ARE MINOR Considerations !! <<

"Map my run" sounds like an interesting application.

Have many questions about it. Greatest questions involve how it is activated ??

Map my Run completely ate my data allowance for the month in a couple of runs and so I changed to Strava and don't have that problem. I much prefer it and it remembers your route so you can see improvements if you regularly run around the same areas.
