Ok, so you know I have used quite a few different running apps and devices in efforts to track and improve my performance. Well, The MilestonePod is a totally NEW kind of stat-analyzing, informational, running buddy. The MilestonePOD offers a fun way to not only track the mileage on your shoes, min/mi pace, etc. but also helps to analyze your over-all run efficiency (see below).
MilestonePOD is an easy set-up as well. 5 easy steps.
Attach the Milestone POD to your shoe. You do not have to turn it on or off and there is no recharging necessary.
2. Download MilestonePOD app to your smart phone.
3. Sync the app to the MilestonePOD.
4. Go for a run. You do not have to have your phone with you during your run.
5. When you are back to your phone, just tap to sync, and the following information is at your fingertips
Foot strike: The percentage of the time your foot strikes the ground on your heel, mid-foot or toe.
Stance: Average amount of time your foot is on the ground
Rate of Impact: How quickly force is transferred from the ground to your legs.
Stride length: Length of your step from heel to toe
Leg Swing: The distance the ankle is from the ground
Runficiency: Calculated from several of your gait metrics
What is also very cool is that next to each one of these informational tidbits, it let’s you know what you should be shooting for or what would be considered a good number or percentage rate.
There are also charts and graphs that compare your:
Pace vs. Candence
Pace vs. Stride Length
Pace vs. Stance
Pace vs. Runficiency
I really like that there is so much information that I otherwise never really thought about. Now I know what I am going to work on…getting my runficiency number up to 100!
If you are interested in ordering your own, you can order these right from their site, or search for a retailer near you OR you can be my lucky winner below!
