    There are lots of couch to 5k style apps but I don't know which is best. all have similar reviews. What a really want is one I read about ages ago and can't remember what it is called. Apparently a voice tells you to walk then run and gives encouragement. I'm not interested in all the times and distances being logged per se but I do need something to start me from scratch and keep me going. Any recommendations? Oh and if one comes with *decent* (I know that's a matter of taste) loaded then even better....

    I used 'C25k Lite' for android, which just played a ding when I had to switch between running and walking. I don't like the voice because I prefer to listen to my own music whilst running. However, I believe the 'full' version of this app has the voice with the encouragement you are after. It's a good app. Doesn't do anything fancy, but very useful.

    I have 5K Runner. First week is free and then you can choose to pay a pound or two if you want to continue x

  6. Are you thinking of Running Mate, voiced by the lovely Todd? I use it on my ipod and iphone and they also have a facebook page (just search for Running Mate) and a website.
