App Problems, help/advice please


Hi all, have just completed Week 7 Run 1, legs felt very heavy, but otherwise it went quite well 😊. I seem to be having problems with the App, it paused twice today, luckily I was also running Strava, so could confirm that I actually ran for 28 mins in the end. I hadn’t accidentally pressed anything and phone was locked, but was wondering if going to another app (such as Strava) will cause C25K to pause. Any advice is appreciated.

The same thing happened to me during W2R2. No idea why, but it never happened again.


I can usually flick between Strava and C25K without it pausing, but if I take my headphones out of the socket it pauses (I took them out to take my phone off my arm and take a photo during a recovery walk, not realising it would pause 😖) Also if I get a call it will pause so I stick my phone on ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode when I start. Not sure if any other apps affect it though 🤔

Thank you, that’s helpful 😊 I could have knocked the headphone socket (my phone holder is quite tight) so I’ll have to be more careful in future. I think I’ll also start putting my phone on ‘do not disturb’ as well - just in case
