i downloaded a couch to 5 k app and did day one run one today.
it crashed
i am looking for android app that tells of when i am half way round and is good!
also looking for free mix of music for running.
has anyone got some links?
am not super unfit i Dont think as i do walk the dog daily. am a smoker though and plan that the running will help me give up. am a tad over weight. Dont do any other exercise though . i am mid 40's.
love some support!

Just started myself too. App (on iPhone) also crashed half way but assumed it was my fault. I now run with a watch and no music but am happy to provide moral support. We (OH joining in) have completed week 1 but not been out since Thursday so will probably do week 1 again from Boxing Day onwards.

I use the 'ease into c25k' app

Never crashes for me... 8 week programme. I'm on week 7 but might go back to week 6 after Xmas. You can play your own music playlist

I'm mud 40's and on 20 min runs now... Love it!!

I found Basement Jaxx brilliant to run to. And some Arcade Fire and Lust for Life by Iggy Pop got me up a few hills.
