Six to Start & Naomi Alderman's Zombies, Run!

MapMyWalk  You’ll not only be able to map out your route, but you’ll also see the elapsed time, distance, pace, speed, elevation, and calories burned as you’re walking. The app also allows you to upload and save your workout data.

Fitbit App Mobile Tracker  You don’t need a Fitbit to use this program—just download the app and use your smartphone to record basic stats like steps, distance, and calories burned.

Endomondo  This app helps keep you motivated to reach walking goals with a personal training plan that adapts to your fitness level as you go.

Zombies, Run!  If you’re a more advanced walker who needs some motivation to stick with interval training, this app is for you. Once you download it, slip on your headphones and walking shoes. You’ll listen to music, but your program will be interrupted periodically by the sound of Zombies. When you hear them, speed up!
