Your training shouldn’t be more difficult than it already is. This app is a great way to train toward getting faster, calculating splits for your upcoming speedwork session. The app calculates the pace for every casual, intermediate or elite runner.

If you want to want to see the breakdown of your pace under one kilometre or one mile, set that as the distance, and keep your pace the same. Tap view splits and the app will show a breakdown of splits per 100m.
