  1. I got a new phone on week 3 but couldn't find a way to transfer the data. I just clicked each of the runs that I'd done so that it showed the next correct run day. I had all my previous runs recorded on MapMyRun so I wasn't too worried.

  2. Wow! You're certainly going for it. Although running 5K seems like an impossible task at the moment, you will end up surprising yourself. When I started, I was just like you. I thought I'd never get to day 2, let alone the end! I quickly realised that my body was more able than I gave it credit for and my mind needed to keep quiet and stop thinking that I couldn't do it. I celebrated my first 5K Parkrun (and a significant weight loss) by buying some new running tights! You can repeat days when you need to by just clicking on the day again, the program will check that you want to wipe the previous data, just click yes. Good luck, you'll get there!

  3. It's good to have something to aim for! I did my first 5K at the end of week 7. I ended up doing 3 short walks, but it didn't matter as I managed to complete it. 3 weeks later I managed to run all the way and knock over 2 minutes off my time. Signing yourself up for a 5K will mean that you give yourself a target but don't injure yourself by demanding too much of yourself in the process. Good luck!

  4. Did my first 5K Parkrun 3 weeks ago and managed to complete it in 34:42 with 3 short periods of walking. At the time I was on week 7 of the program. When I graduated I did 30 minutes of running on 4 mornings each week. Fast forward 3 weeks and I did the same Parkrun route in 32:30, no walking and didn't want to collapse in a heap at the end of it! Speed and stamina are obviously building with time. Have started the 10K training during my weekend runs. Determined to run the local 10K race in April.

  5. My version (free one running on an iPhone 5c) has a lock facility on the app, there's a picture of a padlock which you press and it keeps counting, you can hear all of the voice prompts and it won't change if you touch the screen. Display does stay on with a kind of sunshade effect over it. Might be worth updating your app as this only appeared recently.

  6. Final day of C25K today and I finished it despite setting off at the pace of an escaped animal. Whoops, slightly overconfident in my abilities and thought I was going too fast so when my GPS said I was going at over 6mph I thought I ought to slow down! I've got into a really good routine with morning runs and my next goal is to keep this routine going as I return to work on Monday after 8 months of maternity leave. My next goal will be a 10K next April. The C25K program has been fab, encouraging but reining me back so I didn't do too much.
