Description

Want to get fit and feel fantastic? Want to add some fresh air to your exercise? Then Get Running with the best Couch to 5k App!

With three enjoyable workouts a week, in nine weeks you will be running continuously for half an hour, even if getting off the couch is a struggle today!

Get Running breaks through the “beginning barrier” with its enormously popular Couch to 5k running plan. In week one’s workouts you'll alternate one minute of running with 90 seconds of walking. With each new week, Get Running’s human voice coach gradually builds up your pace, until you’re running for a whole half-hour!

Get Running is the only Couch to 5K App that:

• Coaches like a human – with hundreds of studio-recorded progress and encouragement prompts.
• Supports and encourages you – talk with fellow running rookies on the Get Running forum.
• Lets you share (NEW!) – share Get Running with up to three other runners: you all get your own log and settings!
• Helps you plan – rest days help you recover, and Get Running knows the best day for your next run.
• Displays your next move – the unique Run Clock, customised for each workout, gives complete visibility and understanding.

In addition, Get Running:

• Publishes your success – send updates to Twitter or Facebook, and have your friends remind you when the next run is due!
• Works with or without music – To adjust your music during a run, double press the Home button.
• Fits your schedule – just three workouts a week of 20 to 30 minutes.
• Logs your achievements – with an illuminating visual record of your progress.

Thousands of people have changed their lives with Get Running and you will too! Whether you’re running for your health, training for a 5K, or building to conquer a marathon — Get Running!

Get Running's users say:

• Just finished week 9 run 3 and all I can say is this app changed my life. Great job.

• I LOVE your app. I have tried several but Yours is the BEST for me. I am 60 years young this year & a cancer survivor. I have set the goal to run 5 K races. I use your program as my trainer, it is SUPER. Thank You. – Vickie Wheeler by email

• I tried the top selling "Couch to 5k" App before I purchased this one, and this one is much nicer to use. The voice reminders are very helpful. I like how it pauses your music instead of talking over it. I highly recommend it over the others.

• Thank you so much for this little gem of an app. I had a look at others like it but this wins hands down. It is so brilliantly simple with a great interface.

• Thank you! This app has changed my life. I was unfit and didn't do any regular exercise. I always blamed my asthma for being the reason I couldn't run for longer than a minute, but now I know it's because I was unfit! I have signed up for a 5k race too! – @amyriddett on Twitter

• Really great app. I'm actually looking forward to running. I listen to podcasts and this app is terrific at pausing the show to make it's announcements. I don't miss anything that was said. Outstanding.

The big news is Get Running now has full support for posting your running victories to Facebook as well as Twitter. You will inspire your friends and followers, and they can keep you motivated and encouraged!

Version 1.6 (Feb 15, 2010)

We're enormously excited to bring you three big enhancements in this release.

First – we've found that as well as being a fantastic way to get fit, running is something that most runners want to talk to other runners about, both to celebrate their success and to ask for support. To this end, we've set up a forum where you can catch up with other runners on the program. You can reach it from the "Talk" menu in the app, or you can go there from your usual web browsing machine.

Second & Third – we've added two popularly requested features… You can now choose that a run continue in the background if you close the "Get Running" application. Some of you have also asked for just the essential coaching. You'll find these available as options in the settings menu.

Thank you all for your fantastic feedback and success stories. Please keep it coming using: the forums, get-satisfaction, twitter (@getrunningapp & #getrunning), or the support email address.

Version 1.5.1 (Jan 19, 2010)

It's a new decade, so here are some huge new features to help you start it as you mean to go on!

Get Running can now broadcast your fantastic running successes to the world! …and tell everyone when you should be running again ;-) Bring up the "talk" menu with the button at the bottom left of the main screen, and you'll be able to post on Twitter, Facebook, or with "ping.fm", to just about anywhere at all.

From this version, Get Running runs exclusively on OS 3.0 upwards, which lets the audio quality of the wonderful coaching be notched up from very lovely, to completely sparkling. 3.0 features also allows Get Running Lite to transfer its Run Log to Get Running automatically.

Thanks for your great ideas and feedback, and please keep it coming in – you can open our support web site right from the Talk page.

We're putting the final touches on another enormous feature for Get Running – it should be with you in a couple of weeks. Until then, Happy Running!

Version 1.4 (Sep 27, 2009)

A short and sweet update this time: a few mistakes with the audio have been fixed up.

Thanks for all your brilliant feedback and great reviews! It's fantastic hearing how well you're getting on with your running and loving it!

Expand notes
Version 1.3 (Aug 25, 2009)

Easily remove unwanted runs that have made their way in to your log. Just touch the cogs at the bottom right and choose "Run Log Management" from the Settings screen.

The settings also give you control of the Run Clock during your workouts. The default lets your phone lock itself and dim the display to save power - Get Running will keep on coaching you, of course! Your other options are to keep the clock on, or additionally, protect the in run media controls to avoid accidental activation.

Thanks for all your brilliant feedback, and have an excellent time with your running and your health!

Version 1.2 (Aug 05, 2009)

This new version of Get Running adds ducks!

By popular request, Get Running now pauses your music as it talks to you, and then starts it playing after (In the music trade this is called "ducking" - Quack!).

Ducking uses features only available in OS 3.0 or better. But don't worry: if you're using an older OS, Get Running will still work beautifully, and you'll get ducks if you do upgrade.

… The next release will provide a way to delete unwanted runs from the log. Useful for those times your son or daughter is playing with your phone, and in two minutes they go for six runs with it!

Until then, if you want to remove _all_ runs, you can do that by deleting the app from your phone, and then adding it back with iTunes.

Version 1.1 (Jul 16, 2009)

The major change in this version is that the interface has been streamlined and simplified. You can now easily take things at your pace and re-run a previous run without any need to use the settings.

Additionally:
- The log always shows your most recent runs.
- The text is larger, for better legibility.
- The display of dates is improved, and more friendly.
