Strava is a great tool. A way of monitoring your training and that of your friends, but bragging rights on Strava is missing out on a whole group of people you can impress/bore with your athletic prowess – those non-athletic types who have never heard of Strava.
Never fear however. There are a huge number of apps that can be linked to Strava (here’s a helpful directory) to help you share your journey in really cool ways. There are others that have been developed to help you analyse your training and performance, and even to link with Wellness programs so you can earn rewards for doing what you love.
- Relive – app produces 3D videos of your runs and rides. Can’t wait to see the video from my upcoming attempt at GCAM17.
- Sisu – here’s an app that provides a visual representation of all of the runs and rides you have done over your entire Strava record base. One option is a poster with a map of each of your activities on it, plus the kudos grabbing total mileage for the period. That’s going straight to the pool room.
- Route Ink – create a heat map showing all of your activities of the past 3 years overlaid onto the one map. Where have you ventured in your city, and where is still waiting to be explored?
- Storyteller – put your data into context by telling the tale of your run or ride with Storyteller. Then share it!
Given there are 10 million activities added to Strava each week (that equates to nearly 1,000 per minute) there is a lot of data that can be accessed and used. Along with this putting it into a format for people who aren’t runners or cyclists can help them share in and appreciate what we are doing after waking them at 4:30 in the morning!
