Great for biginners

I love this app, it takes you on your journey in really easy to manage steps. I’ve tried another app that takes you from the sofa to 5k, but the increases were too steep too quickly, yes you can repeat weeks, that just made me feel worse. In my honest opinion this one is so much better, I feel like I’m improving every time I go out for a run, instead of feeling like a failure because I couldn’t do it. It’s also helped me to stay motivated to carry on with my running. I highly recommend this app to beginners, you won’t regret starting this program.

Good stuff

I wanted to get back into running (annoyingly starting from scratch after 10 months off) so using couch to 5k.
I didn’t want to be doing the timing myself and clock watching as I ran and I also wanted to be able to play my own music along with the programme.
This allows just that.
There are a number of apps that have pre programmed music that I don’t like and also has someone talking you through EVERYTHING. This doesn’t it just times run / walk counts you in and out.
Good app.

Great app simple to use

Am getting on really well with the free version of the app. The only couple of things that would make it better would be the ability to go back and repeat a run if he next one seems to daunting which doesn’t seem to be an option on the free version anyway. Also I find it hard to hear he voice prompts when I have music on and traffic passes, it could do with muting your music for a few seconds so you can hear the instructions. Having said that, it might be a feature in the paid version?
Otherwise I’m finding it really easy to use
