What do you reckon you the "suffer score" as a way of measuring workout intensity. For me it just increases if you run further. I guess if you really cane it you can get your heart rate up and improve it.

I use it for cycling. I think it's one of the best apps around - 100% spot one. I have more suffer days in warm weather due to heart rate going berserk in the heat.

Is that what people put in their tea when they’re cutting out sugar?

yeah the suffer is only when your HR gets high you could run for hours at a moderate HR and not get a big suffer score

i did a 4odd hour cycle a few month ago from acklam to the man on the moors across the hills etc was totally knackered out on most climbs got back and my suffer score was crap.

got a bigger suffer score doing a 2.6 mile run last night

Use it for distance tracking and average speed.  Unbeatable for stuff like that!

It doesn't really collect enough data on sprints.

I know it's heart rate linked but it always seems to me the longer I'm out runni g the more my suffer score. Think I'll try a long and really slow one at the weekend to see if I can keep it low.
