    Thats the sort of attitude I love! It is basically a 9 week course to talk you from the couch to being able to run/jog for 30 mins, I have had a bit of a listen and it is really good, tells you when to walk and when to run (has some decent music to help as well).;)

    There is an app but it's not called this. The app is brilliant. This is how I very first started running, don't worry if you have to repeat a week, I think I repeated week 3 again as I couldn't manage week 4 at the time. Just take your time if it's your first time running, just a gentle jog, keep ur arms lose and don't worry if you have to slow down, just don't stop.
    Good luck xx

    There are loads of apps and pod casts. Just search C25k or Couch to 5k.
    Its hard work but worth it.

    Thanks guys, I dont have the money to go to the gym, so im going to free boxercise classes and can do this too. Im moving to London soon so if I can get through this I can go for nice runs during the summer round the parks down there.

    mmm theres a goal I can aim for.

    Wow that would be cool, my partners flat is in Chiswick Village.
    I wont know anyone there other than his flat mates so that would be really nice.

    Awwwww damn it, you're on the other side of london to me!!! :sigh:

    I'm on the Ilford end so the only thing i can foresee happening is if we meet in the middle at Hyde park within london for a run!

    Well, we'll have to get together at least once :D.

    I think it's 3 days a week...every other day...dependant on which day you start. :)

    I used the Get running app bcos i thought you could play your music whilst running to it but it didn't. I want to play my music not the apps music...any ideas or anyone with different apps that do this please?
