Training Philosophy:

Virtual Run Coach's training philosophy is a hybrid of Pfitzinger (higher mid week mileage, 3 large cycles) and Jack Daniels (speed work throughout, build up throughout entire plan). The app selects exactly what is right for you based on the difficulty level. The harder the difficulty level, the more speedwork will be incorporated and the higher the mileage will ultimately go.

App Features:
-- Customizable half and full marathon plans
-- Specify specific race date and plan will generate based on that
-- Select base miles/KM per week
-- Adjustable difficulty level / speedwork
-- iPhone reminders available to remind you when to run
-- Specific detailed description of each run
-- Running tips to help you be your best
-- Store run results inside the app
-- Share runs on Twitter
-- Analyze runs with reports on weekly, monthly, yearly basis
-- Calculate pace
-- Metric Distance Support
