Customer Reviews

Love love love this app!

Using this app, I went from not being able to run for 30 seconds straight without getting tired and hating running to running for 30 minutes straight and completing my first 5k (2.5 miles) without resting! This probably took me around 2 months, and wow that's such an improvement! I feel better, I look better, and boy does this work. They key to making this app work for you is consistency! You can't expect to improve without putting in a little effort each day! Also, this is so important: run when it's comfortable outside! You're more likely to quit if you run and it's hot and you have the sun beating down so run when it's cool and remember to hydrate! Also: go at your own pace! I can't stress this enough! When you start this app, try a slow jogging pace instead of pushing yourself to run fast! The more comfortable you are the more likely you will stick with it!

As for the specs, I like the little motivational speaker that tells you to keep going and the design is well organized. I think it's be cool to get daily motivational quotes not just reminders to run. I love this app! Now on to the 10k one!

I can run!

I have never been able to run more than like five minutes, and I had decided I just have bad lungs. Recently, I decided I wanted to become a runner and downloaded this app to help me get there.

This app was hard, beginning in week 2, and it still kind of is (I have two runs left before I finish). There were days where I complained that it was pushing me to do too much, too fast - that it was getting harder faster than I was getting better. But, all of that was in my head. I managed to push through each of the running days, even if I was jogging at the slowest pace possible. I am now able to run for about half an hour (without sounding like my asthmatic son), which is a huge accomplishment for me, and I'm confident that I will be running 5k when I finish the app later this week. I never thought I would be able to run this time or distance without stopping, and I couldn't have made it to this point without the app pushing me to improve. Now, I just need an app that will push me to improve my speed and pace.

I'll be looking for another 5k app.

I just got back from my first run using this app, and I think that will also be my last. Before the run, there were some annoyances - like the splash screen that plays a sound on launch even if your phone is on mute, or the fact that I got an alert that said the app was using my location, even though I was sitting at my office and wasn't using the app. Once I actually took off on my first run, it was nothing but problems. The audio did not always accompany the run/walk notifications. The Apple Watch app froze up. When I unlocked the phone to check the time because I could no longer look at my watch, it displayed the wrong interval and wrong remaining time, until I re-locked and unlocked a few times. Then, at the end of my workout, the intervals got mixed up and it told me to start my cool down before I'd even gotten to the last run interval!

I think I wasted my money on this. Some of the annoyances might be forgivable, but the timers don't even work right? What use is it then?
