The Run 10k app is perfect for beginner runners and former runners who want to start running again. This app has voice cues that guide you even when your screen is locked. The app tells you when to run and walk and gives audio cues for distance and pace when you use GPS. You can use this app outside, on a track, or in the gym.

COMING FROM RUN 5K?
If you’ve completed our Run 5k app and you're feeling good, you can start on Week 4 or 5 of our Run 10k app to continue your training. If you’re a couch potato, start from Week 1, or check out our Run 5k app first.

AUDIO CUES and NOTIFICATIONS
If you’re not getting Notifications in the background, open the Settings app, select Notifications, then scroll down to find Run 10k in the list. Tap on Run 10k and turn on Notification Center, choose an alert style, and turn everything else on (Sound, Badge App Icon, Lock Screen). Check your volume and make sure your ringer switch is not set to silent/vibrate.

HEALTHKIT
This app can be integrated with the Health app and be used with HealthKit. Your weight set in the Health app can be used to calculate Calories burned during a workout, and the total Active Calories burned can be saved to HealthKit after each workout. Sharing this information with HealthKit is optional.

GPS and LOCATION
To show distance and pace information, Run 10k can use GPS location tracking during a workout. For best results, use this app outside where you can see open sky. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Great, but a few things I'd like to see incorporated....

Music Sounds Better With You!

First off...A PEDOMETER. How the heck do I know if I'm actually running a 10k? I'm assuming they are using a general figure and average for the amount of time spent running, but each person is different. I'd like to know what, at week 4, my progress is, how far I'm actually going. I don't know how this ultimately can be successful for anyone if they don't know if they are running a full 10k or not.

I'd like more than just a 1/2 way verbalization. Something during each run portion maybe, like "doing great, 30 seconds left". Maybe a verbal 1/3 and 2/3 of the way through. A bit more motivational talk, so to speak during the trainings.

Overall, this is a GREAT app. I'd like to really see a pedometer built in though. I love that I choose my 'just run' playlist and it's all upbeat stuff. I am repeating week 4 because I feel like my body is telling me to. Don't worry if you need to repeat a week or even a day. Just do what your body tells you. I also am using the program 4 days a week and just repeating day 1 of that week for the 4th day. Loving the app. Really motivates me. And where before I'd just quit before I reached my goal of say once around the track, now I run until I hear that voice say it's ok to walk. Great to have it.

Fun and challenging way to work out!

I recently got back into running after a hip injury kept me sidelined for over 2 years. My doctor said to ease back into running... and this app allows me to do just that. I am doing it a little more slowly (repeating workouts) because of my hip, but I am on Week 7 and can definitely feel a difference in how long I'm able to run! It is definitely a motivator... cannot wait to check off that little box at the end of each workout! A few things that would make it even better...
- you can listen to playlists, but can't randomize songs (or at least I haven't figured out how!)
- there are random check marks in weeks that I haven't tried yet... kind of odd... doesn't affect the way you use the program that day though
- I have to exit out of the program and re-enter it each time I finish a workout in order to press the "End Workout" button. Kind of annoying and unnecessary.
Other than these small gripes, I really enjoy using this app. It also doesn't seem to eat up my battery life, even though I keep it on the entire time and don't let the screen go black. Give it a try... for $3, it's cheaper than a personal trainer/running coach, and extremely effective!

Love it

Update* I've completed the program and ran my 10k. It was the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. My weight is at 240 now and my training runs are 5 miles. I've started a 20 week marathon training program and wish you guys had one.

I'm on week 8 and I'm surprised that this program is working so well. I think back to when I started the program and how I could barely make the full 30 seconds of running. Following the program I had to push myself each week thinking there is no way I'm going to be able to run for x amount of time, but each week I've been able to complete the runs. I've completed one 5k and was able to run 3 miles with the special Olympic torch to raise money. My 10 k is coming up in July and I can't wait. I've only lost about 20 #'s over the last 8 weeks, but I'm losing inches on my waist.
When I started the program I was over 280# with bad knees a resting heart rate of 89 and hypertension. My weight is down to 259 blood pressure is normal and my resting heart rate is 58. This program has turned my life around.
My only complaint is the lack of GPS to track distance. I've been using Nike+ or Run Keeper to track distance.
