Setting a target pace and maintaining can feel like an art form. At first, it seems easy, but before you know it, your mind starts to wander—or you get in the zone and you’re either too fast, too slow, or yo-yo’ing between the two.

Wouldn’t it be cool if instead of just monitoring your average pace, current pace, or splits, something could let you know when you’re running faster, slower, or right at that sweet spot? The good news is you can with a Target Pace Workout in the ASICS Runkeeper app.

These workouts will let you set a Target Pace, and whenever your time Audio Cues trigger, it will announce whether you’re behind or ahead of your Target Pace. To get started, tap the Workout Grid, select the Pace option, and set this to the pace you’re hoping to maintain.  Check the video out below for detailed instructions!

Pro Tip: If you’ve been with us since the beginning, you’re well familiar with Kat, the voice behind the default audio cues. But did you know we have others too? Try switching things up and choose another voice to accompany your runs.
