Just completed my third 30 min run this morning, and still felt great
Still not quite running the full 5K in 30 min but at the minute I'm at about 4.6K so need to speed up a little.
I would like to add my thanks to the get running app team, which managed to get a 40+ something 20+ stone man running non stop for 30 min in 9 weeks dead.
Let me add my vote for a 5K - 10K app, I know the team are working on it... but I'll only be able to re-run week 9 for so long
Area: New Zealand
Completed: Today! 2 March 2011
Comments: I have never been a runner in my life, but now, thanks to this app, I really am! Your programme was recommended on a blog I read, and I had a look, and went, "I can do that...". Turns out, I was right.
I've really enjoyed Get Running, even though the toughest part for me was around week 6 and 7, I really struggled with some of those sessions. I will miss the calm encouragement of the lovely Clare, but I fully intend to Keep Running from here on.
Thanks to everyone involved for developing Get Running. Like so many others, I wish there was an extension programme to carry on from here, but we have a saying - 'good things take time'. Thanks again for providing such a nice, user-friendly little application.

Comments: Really enjoyed the programme and it is a great programme. I am so happy that I have completed it.
9 weeks ago I was really struggling to run for longer than 1 minute and now I am running 30 minutes non-stop. I am feeling fitter and losing some weight.
This is a great app and I am now looking to continue by using Runkeeper but would prefer you make a 10k app as I am now seriously considering training for the Swansea Bay 10k. I am also intending mprove my distance over 30mins and 5k time as well.
Well done to everyone who has completed and good luck to those still running it!!!! Keep Moving On!!!
Many thanks Get Running!
I really feel like a runner & I've dropped 25lbs. Feeling great thanks ! And to top it all off, my husband is starting the program tomorrow. I think he's afraid that he won't be able to catch me
Finished this morning 05.55 a.m. the 9 weeks of GetRunning. Thks for your gr8 applications.
In the past I started a lot of times with the try to become a runner. I always failed. This year was different, I succeeded.
See the blog @ www.damopet.at/wp (unfortunately only in German so far, as I'm short of time - maybe I solve this in future
Thks once more

Completed: 25th June 2011 during a 5k parkrun!!!
Comments : Woohoo I finished! Probably the best running app in the world This has literally changed my life. The pace of the programme was just perfect - even including the dreaded week 5 run 3! I feel elated but at the same time a little bereft. What am I going to do on Tuesday My immediate plan is to get faster and fitter for my Saturday morning 5k parkruns. Does anyone have an app for that?
Happy running x
