Yes, we know. The whole smartphone thing isn’t for everybody. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to hold your 5K training plan in your hands!
This week Ease into 5K hit the Amazon Kindle store and can be downloaded for just $0.99 (limited time introductory price). Just like of our iPhone/Android apps, the Kindle version will keep track of your workouts and time your intervals for you.
If you’ve been holding out for a plan on a platform other than your phone, this might be the one for you. Or, if you’ve got friends or family who have been watching you get fit and wishing they could jump on board, this could be a perfect introduction to running for the e-bookworms among them.
Obviously the Kindle isn’t designed to fit in a palm or a pocket the way your phone is, but it’s still more than capable of keeping you company on the treadmill. You’ll also be able to enter your pace, weight, and other stats into the workout journal for safekeeping.
