Best C25K It has never crashed, and it plays nicely with both Audible books and Pandora. The lady announcer tells you info and pace after each interval, and after your run you get lots of detailed visual stats too. I'm in week 5, and I'm thrilled with how far I've come. I'm actually enjoying running for the first time ever!
Great so far Just completed first run and despite free two week trial have purchased as can tell it's a great app. A quid to get me motivated, running and fit? Well worth it.
Several of my friends and co-workers are running 5K runs and have invited me along. I'm definitely not there yet. But this app is helping. It works with music apps so I can listen as I run. The directions are crystal clear (Start running, start walking). It also works great with my Pebble, with a quick glance I can see how much time I have before a merciful walk, which keeps me from quitting that last 30 seconds. And make sure to checkout the webpage after your run! You first see a chart showing your overall progress. Then you can break down into each run, with a map of the run broken down by each segment with its time, distance, and pace. This info helps for a quick glance to see how you did, or an in depth analysis of your runs. The website alone is worth the cost of the app! Even better than the app and the website is the developer. When I made some comments about problems (shin splints) on the RunDouble FB page, he quickly replied with very useful information AND moral support. I'm currently in Week 5, halfway there. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and I definitely see this app as a large reason I feel confident enough to have registered for my first 5K!
So far so good I've really enjoyed this app so far. It has a variety of programs (in the free version) that are great. The run tracking and statistics are good to look back on and see the progression as I've made improvements. I went on and got the pro version for the C25K program and it functions the same as the other options. It also syncs up so you can view the information through their website if you choose. I find it easier to work on my PC when reviewing data so that is nice. The next step will hopefully see some way of creating custom intervals/times. I'd love to be able to do a timing interval more than 30 minutes without having to resort to open run with no intervals.
Great starting tool! I couldn't even finish Week 1 Day 1 the first time I tried it, and now I'm about to graduate and move to the 5k-to-10k plan. I love this app and tell everyone I know about it.
Best way to become a runner I started out about to die doing 3, 5 & 8 min runs but today I finished a 20min run with out stopping. I highly recommend this for anyone serious about getting into running. It's never crashed on me & I don't have to worry about checking my time.. I am about to start week 6 with so much excitement. I didn't love running before but I do now..
