I didn’t use the app but I followed the program just to see how it was.  It wasn’t bad – but I found that I wasn’t any more motivated from the program then when I was just running last summer.

I like the Nike App for running, because it shows me my route, my speed, and where I slowed down and sped up, so I can shoot for a more even pace.

I have a Couch 2 5K app on my iPod and I really love it.  I am NOT a runner, so it’s very tough for me.  I actually stopped using it for a while because it was in the upper 90’s here (cough cough last summer cough) and I almost passed out trying to run outside.

However, I LOVE that I can make my own playlists that motivate me.

It’s ok to take it slow and re-do days too, so don’t get too down on yourself if you can’t complete some days.

I have it and think its great! That said, I only got halfway before my foot decided it hated running and I am on a running ban!

Love this app! It really does help.

I still hate running though. I always hear about that “runner’s high” and how someone looks forward to a good run or had a good run. I say bullshit. Yeah, it feels good that I accomplished a run because it’s healthy for me, but I still hate running.
