Great for getting started. Shane your phone kept turning off . C25k is an amazing plan and really does work you'll get lots of encouragement and support on here good luck 😊


Were you using the app?

I found the app to be really temperamental so gave up using it and downloaded the Podcasts. The downside of this is that you can't listen to your own music, but I find the music within the podcast works well for running anyway.

Well done for starting out on the plan. Hope you manage to find a solution to the faulty phone before run 2.


Are you using a Huawei? If so you have to go into the c25k app through the battery settings and turn it o to manual control whi h allows you say it can run in the background. That normally sorts it out
