@firstname.lastname@example.org I stopped using runkeepers personally.
I used a premade playlist of songs as time keeper, and a set running circuit, meaning I knew "Oh its that song, and I got this far! Cool!"
Then I use the tempo of the songs to keep my running cadence in check (old dude, risk of knee injuries = high cadence and tiny steps)
Not an answer I know but just a suggestion - try it out with a set circuit you've run before. To me it felt better tbh than a runkeeper.
