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.

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!!

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.
