RUNNING PACE CALCULATORS – MOBILE APPS
Therefore, in this note we will present a series of free applications for your mobile:
Pace Calculator (Iphone)
This free app for Iphone allows us to define the distance of the race to which we will participate and the time we want to take it.
After loading this data, it will give you the average pace and speed (km / h) you need to run to acomplish your objective.
Also you can send the data to your email or export it to PDF format to print the information and have it on the race day.
Finally, it also has conversion tools: from race pace to speed (and vice versa) and from kilometers to miles (and vice versa).
You can download it by entering here: https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/pace-calculator/id502814541?mt=8
Pace Calculator (Android)
With the same name as the previous app, but different developer and operating system (works on Android phones), this free application offers the possibility of a typical pace calculator in addition to being able to calculate the time in which you must run each interval to meet your objective of time in the competition.
You can download it by entering here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=appinventor.ai_AERvanHouten.PacePlus&hl=en_419
Free application for Iphone that will give us the same information as the previous ones, but with a more friendly and intuitive graphic interface.
The intervals are calculated in kilometers.
You can download it by entering here: https://itunes.apple.com/ar/app/paceplan/id552367205?mt=8
Another application available for Iphone, which also has an attractive visual interface, in addition to having more versatility to allow us to configure the size of the intervals (not limited to 1km or 1 mile like the previous ones).
In this way, it is a useful application for those who run on the track (400 meters), being able to count on the information on the speed at which they must run each lap, in order to fulfill their established objective.

Being all free applications, we recommend that you try them and choose the one that works best for you.
As a negative aspect of these applications, it is worth noting that they do not allow the configuration of negative splits (race strategy used by the best runners in the world that consists of running the race in intervals decreasing the speed).
However, the solution to this is to plan your intervals and load them separately in the application of your choice. For example, if you want to run 10 km in 40 minutes you can load two 5 km intervals: the 1st to run at 20:30 and the 2nd at 19:30.
