  4. 4
    Next, we need to find the MapMyRun icon, which is blue and white with an image of a man running inside of a white circle.

  5. 5
    Tap the icon once to open the application, and it should automatically take us to the map page, where we can start recording workouts.
    It may also open the login page, in which case please refer to another video on this website, where we explain exactly how to sign up and/or log in to MapMyRun.

    First of all, "COACHING" is in the top left corner.

  8. 8
    Both of these options have very small, orange teardrop shape images in the corners.
    This means we need to be upgraded to the premium version of the app before we can edit these settings.

  9. 9
    First, we have "MUSIC", which is in the middle at the top, and is indicated by the musical notes.

  11. 11
    On the "Music" page, we can synchronize certain music apps as well as the iPhone Music Player with this application.

  12. 12
    We can select "SHUFFLE" at the top left corner.
    The icon will turn blue when enabled, and will be gray when disabled. This is the same for "REPEAT" and "AUTO PLAY" located next to "SHUFFLE". The icons are blue when the option is enabled and gray when the option is disabled. Just tap to enable or disable. This is a way to control our music within one app rather than skipping between two different applications when working out.

    We are currently on "Nearby".

  28. 28
    This loads other people's routes that have been run in our location.
    If we are on vacation away from home, this will show us popular routes in the location we are currently visiting. This is very useful.

  37. 37
    On this screen, we can select which gear we are using.
    This is quite a long process of selecting exactly which gear, but once we have done this, there will be a list of things to choose from, such as the type of shoes, maybe our sweatbands and this kind of thing. This is a fairly useful part of the app. Say, for example, we're using Nike shoes. It will tell us exactly when we can update these shoes, or when they are no longer supporting us, and when we should get a new pair.

    It's not compulsory to enter in our gear.

  40. 40
    The assistant will start to explain what we're doing.
    We're obviously not running at the moment, so we don't have a current pace or calories.

  41. 41
    As we're running, if our settings are on the default settings, then she will tell us when it has been 10 or 15 minutes, what our average pace is, etc.
    She sort of explains the run to us as we're going, so we don't have to keep looking at the screen.

  42. 42
    However, when we do we'll see the option to edit our music along the top.
    As mentioned before, we don't have to switch between the music players.

Questions and Answers

How can I get more than one song to play when I walk?

I click Record a Workout. My Activity is Walk. I do not select a route, No Gear. I click Music. Click Auto Play. I highlight the first Artist in my music selection. I click Start Workout. The music plays, but only the one that I highlighted.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

After you tap on "Music" and "Auto Play", tap on "Repeat" to disable it if needed. Then, you can tap on "Playlists", where you can use playlists from the Music application. You can put as many songs into playlists as you wish from within the Music application. You can also tap on "Albums" or "Artists". If there is more than one song from the tapped album or the artist, then the songs will play too. You can switch songs on the fly by tapping the double-triangle buttons that denote the previous or next song.
