I posted something similar in the feature request thread but thought I should ask separately in case I'm just being dumb. (Yes, often happens.)
I only have the Android app (no extra gear like HRM) and am following the half-marathon program. I like that it sets up a schedule and tells you what pace you should be going during your run; very cool feature! My only concern is that I live in a hilly area and run on trails. (And let me be honest here, I "jog".) Going uphill, it's much harder to stay in the prescribed zone. I assume the goal with zones is to actually maintain a level of exertion, and pace happens to correlate on flat terrain. So I end up slowing down going up a hill, which often takes me out of the zone I'm supposed to be in. That affects my score, of course. And it's also probably less than ideal because the band loses its meaning and I'm just guessing what pace I should be at. (Probably not a big deal.) Is it possible to include elevation data in the calculation of the bands so that they're not static? That was my feature request, but maybe I'm completely missing something here.... I also understand that using a HRM would be a better measure of exertion and probably make this problem irrelevant.
