Magic PRs and new filters

Posted by & filed under New Features.

We just added a couple of new features to make PR Progress and Pace Trends even more powerful. Discovering your “Magic” PRs What makes a PR magic? A magic number is a number that’s significant because… well, just because it is. When we’re talking about PR’s the magic numbers are nice and round. They’re the […]

Learn from your best runs

Posted by & filed under New Features.

Last month we released PR Progress, a new Smashrun Pro feature which allows you to visualize all the PR’s you’ve set over time. Knowing this information shows you the end result of all your training from different training cycles. So it also makes sense to see what kind of training made each of those PR’s […]

Introducing PR Progress

Posted by & filed under New Features.

Hurrah! Today we released a new Smashrun PRO feature called “PR Progress”, which you’ll find within the Analyze section. First off, a PR (or sometimes called a PB) is a personal record/personal best. You set a new PR every time you run faster for a given distance. Regardless of how fast a runner you are, […]

Nike import issues

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The Nike sync is currently down. As of Sept 28th, new runs are no longer flowing through the pathways we use to retrieve your data. We’re not an official partner of Nike, and so we don’t have any recourse, but to wait and hope that they fix something. This turn of events is all the […]

The new demographic ranks

Posted by & filed under New Features.

Finally! The new “Demographic Ranks” is live today. We know. It took for…ever. But, all I can say is it was just really quite hard. Yes, the entire endeavor consists of exactly one single page. But, it is a fairly useful and maybe even, to those who are being somewhat generous, a pretty cool page. […]

Nike import changes

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

UPDATE July 11th, 2017 Nike seems to have made further changes, and as a result their API now returns an error rather than the GPS details for many (but not all) Nike users. We’re going to keep investigating, but since Nike is officially a closed platform, we have limited options at this point. I know […]

A new app for a new year

Sportractive is a popular and highly rated free app for Android phones. It’s got a super clean interface, accurate recording, and a ton of features. And best of all, it now has a direct integration with Smashrun. If you’ve got an Android phone, and you’re looking for an easy way to get your runs on […]

API Improvements

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

This past week we’ve added a bunch of new functionality to the Smashrun API. We’re moving beyond import/export to try and make some of Smashrun’s unique functionality more accessible. Some highlights: Stats by all-time / year / month Notables for a run Splits by kilometer or mile Return a route map as SVG, GeoJSON or […]

French Foreign Legion Badge

We’ve had our head down working on: Bulk export, Demographic ranks, and a greatly expanded API. And I’ll be honest. They are each complex challenges, but they’re also all just really very dull. Don’t get me wrong they’ll be great additions to Smashrun, but the work involved is just so exacting and tedious… So, like […]

Some small improvements

Posted by & filed under New Features.

We’ve been pretty busy polishing up the new Garmin Push API, but we still made a little time to add some small but helpful features. Projected finish time If you’ve ever run a marathon, you’ve probably wondered: “If I had run the second half as fast as my first half, what would my time have […]
