There is an old English folk saying that goes, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." I have a different approach: Do something about the heat. The folk saying would have us accept the poor designs of the world. Why? After all, if people were responsible for the "heat" in the first place, then people should be able to do something about it. Is the kitchen too hot? Redesign it.

Sandru, Samuel, Hornos, Miguel J. and Rodríguez, Maria Luisa (2012): Long-distance runner training system for smartphones. In: Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Interacción Persona-Ordenador 2012. p. 34.

For many people nowadays, sports is a vital part of their physical and mental well-being and there is a certain sport that each day acquires more adepts, running. The proposal presented in this paper tries to help runners by offering assistance for those interested in competing in long distance running, and more specifically in marathon distance. Our objective therefore consists in analysing the necessities of long distance runners, designing and proposing a system that aims at assisting sportsmen in their decision making on the planning of their training sessions and thus avoiding injuries caused by overtraining. The system should be able to offer training advices, make route recommendations based on the user location context and provide feedback during the specific training.
