Q:

Best Coaching App for Raw Beginners: Runmeter

I have a marathon coming up in a few months. How can I get online coaching tailored to my ability? Oh, and how can I get it for free?

A:BEST FOR RAW BEGINNERS
The Apple-only Runmeter app has a limited number of training plans and only one for would-be marathoners. That said, the 20-week marathon program is excellent prep for non-runners trying the event for the first time. The walk-run regimen tops out at 30 miles of total running for the week, and emphasizes taking it eeeeeeasy.

THE COACH
Various professional coaches.

THE VOICE
A huge range of voices in four different languages, including Indian and Australian-accented English.

$4.99; for iPhone only.
