App and podcasts - different interval

Hi all, just found the forum. Started the program a few weeks back and just did w5.2 this morning but have been using the 5k Runner app. After looking at the podcasts available and the charts on this forum I notice they are different. Eg w5.2 on the app is w6.1 on the charts. Now not sure if I am following the c25k as designed. Anyone thoughts?

Hmmm not sure about the details but I do know that the app has timing faults so I switched to the podcast.

Good luck :)


I think this is the plan that most of us have followed - this is the plan as layed out in the NHS podcasts.

I suspect that it wouldn't matter much if another plan had some slight differences.


The podcasts on are free and really good. Most of us used those as the apps sometimes freeze, and no-one wants that to happen during a run!


I noticed too that there are some slight differences in the various programmes. I was rather surprised when W6R3 with Laura turned out to be 25 mins not 22 as I'd seen on another site.
