I've been running with the c25k APP. .On w3r3.. .. Question is I have downloaded map my run.. Will it interfere.. with Laura? (Oops maybe not a good way to put it) I mean is there audio that might cut out her instructions? Maybe I feel now is time I find out how far I'm actually crawling :) not great with technology so afraid to test on a real run!

Thanks for any help x

  • I use both! I start Laura and then start map my run or else sometimes map my run doesn't work properly. They do talk over each other sometimes but not often, it's easy enough to work out what Laura is saying if they do clash. I really like both because Laura is like my coach but seeing my times and distances is my motivation. I love seeing my times get faster each week X

  • I've had run keeper going at the same time as the app and my own music and all run fine. The only time run keeper interferes is if it gives an update at exactly the same time as Laura so they talk over each other but that's rarely happened for me.

  • Thanks pumkin I will try next r run.. good luck with your s... where you up to now?

  • Week 8 for me now although slightly stalled due to only being able to get out twice a week at a he moment.

  • I am on week 7 and tried using Laura with Runkeeper today. It worked fine because there was a slight gap (the time taken to find the podcast and press start on Laura!). I quite liked the regular 5 minute update on Runkeeper - time, distance, speed and was surprised that I managed to keep a steady pace despite some uphill bits. Not sure how long I can use it for free though.

  • Thanks every everyone.. Will try it out and look forward to seeing how far I actually run.. not bothered about speed at all yet.. taking on board all the fantastic advise on this forum.. it helped so much with this c25k journey :)

  • Thanks everyone

    Ran with map my run and laura.. they didn't clash although map my run was barely audible.. but that didn't bother me was great to have my run / route recorded. And was surprised at the distance and time. 3.3k at 9.8 per km slow I know but will be great to see my progress :) x. That was the toughest run yet w4r1.. but I done it :) good luck on your next runs x
