When asked to give my thoughts on a new app, I thought let me do it – I know apps! And, I am glad I did! I used to be a runner, then I let it go by the way-side, if you will, but thought this app – RockMyRun – could help me get back into it. Well, it did not make me a runner overnight – (I am still waiting on that one!), but it does something better – let me explain.
I used to enjoy being a runner – again, I would not consider myself a runner, nor athletic, but I did run, and enjoyed it, but as time goes on and you have a child, it just gets forgotten. However, this app did help me get back into a routine. I know, as a mother you are thinking, “what kind of routine, no, I mean, you have a routine?” Well, somewhat of a routine. It keeps track of your steps that you take during the day. It lets you create music and beats, to any kind of genre you can imagine, and it does not stop between songs.
Most apps that I have seen or heard of – they go from one song to the next trying to mix them together, not this one. It has over 73 minutes, on most cases, where the songs for from one to the next and you can skip just the song you do not want to listen.
The genres are great – I am an 80’s girl, and it has just 80’s songs, and various ones at that. I also enjoy pop and hip hop, you name it you can find it with this app.
If you have any kind of phone, you can download this app – I have an Android phone – or an LG one at that, and it is compatible. Most are just for one of the other – not this one. You have a fee that you pay but it is not much and you can mix any kind of music and any kind of genre – there is it. They have cardio mixes to just ‘I want to go for a walk or take my dog out today’ kind of music – it really is a great app. It helps you, also, if you want to run a 5K. Do you want to try to run, since maybe you haven’t before? It will help you with where to start and how – this was my problem.
One of my favorite ones, or mixes, is Star Crossed Pop – it is house and pop, and it is explicit, however, you can pick ones that are clean – which is important for me, since I do have a 10 year old. However, there are times, most moms will have to agree, you need to hear some explicit just so you don’t hear it from your children – just sayin.
I really appreciate that opportunity I received to try this out. I would recommend this app. Just go to www.rockmyrun.com and you can listen to some of the mixes, create your own or just go with theirs. You can download the APP FOR FREE but for $2.99 a month you can get the premium membership with awesome perks.
