Marathon Trainer App, Round 2
November 2, 2010 § Leave a comment
Comments and suggestions welcome, especially from any runners out there. But first, I just want to say that Photoshop is frustrating to work with. This is, of course, only a sampling of the most important pages that doesn’t include linking and transition pages. I realize that visually it’s still not completely consistent and the color scheme isn’t exactly what I’d like it to be, and as far as functionality goes, well, I’m not the most reasonable runner when it comes to proper training, so I’m not even sure if it all makes complete sense.
- The little rounded square runner icon on the right of the 55 mi/24 week header would be a link to a fitness/running log site, where you could log your training in ways that are too complicated for this app. In the training screen, the entire week that you’re on is highlighted in yellow, and you can check off what workouts you’ve done whether you’ve done them in specific order within the week or not. I thought that the aspect of flexibility would be useful for the app, since it is sometimes necessary to juggle around workouts to fit in with the rest of your schedule. The screen does look a little cluttered in general, though, and I’m not sure what the best solution for that might be. I had it before that I divided the training into the 4 mesocycles as suggested by Advanced Marathoning,but it took up a lot of space and there’s a lot going on there as it is.
