Couch to 5K

Downloaded Zombies, Run!

Well I downloaded the app (£2.49) and off we went. I can't be bothered with instructions so I chose to run 5k as opposed to stopping when I completed a mission (I think!?) which was at just over 4k. When it comes to running away from the zombies I tried my best but they unfortunately caught me three times - at least I tried to sprint away and I got lots of supplies.

So I did my 5k in less than 35 minutes and we have decided to mix our runs up to include a 5k consisting of purely hill training, another to do sprints of 100 metres followed by walking for 100 metres, Zombies and then a flat, straight run of 5k to check our PR.

Can't believe I'm enjoying this - also lucky that I've managed to get a group of four who can run together three times a week.

I think I'll be downloading the zombies app as I've heard / read a fair bit about it and it sounds fun :)

Hi there. Sounds like fun - i have been thinking about getting this ap. Can you play your music over it or don't you really need music too?

You can play music (it plays during the gaps in the story) - I don't normally listen to music as earbuds irritate me so I have this on speaker and I'm quite happy to hold my phone.

Let me know how it goes with Zombies. I was thinking of getting that as well.

Can you run it concurrently with another app for tracking purposes? I like to keep track of things in Runkeeper...

Apparently so - I need to do a test run with my Active C25K and this. The app does do it's own stats though but I couldn't see my route despite me switching on the GPS.

I would love to have a go at this sort of app. I think it will help motivate which is my main problem. I think it's a wonderful idea.

Hi - it's Zombies, Run1 by Six to Start. There are two, the other is a 5k training so if you've done 5k you don't need it. I've been caught by the zombies three times despite my best efforts!
