I love this app and certainly don’t regret donating. It is simple and had everything I need. There are plenty of running apps that require headphones for audio motivation and interval changes, but with this one you only need your watch, not even your phone is required. It links to my Garmin activities, so I get all the data fields and reports to look at afterwards, such as heart rate. While running, I have all the fields I need such as heart rate and speed. Thanks so much for this app, and I look forward to starting on the 10k one!

Great app, it is really motivating for me! Thanks for your work!
I would like to ask one thing; how can I see or know which training is meant to be for example a interval training? I checked thw support forums but couldn't find anything related to detailed plan!

Is this comparable to a C25K app?
August 15, 2018, peterdedecker
yes this program will also guide you from 0k to 5k in 30 lessons. Cheers, Peter.

Nice App. Would like to see the schedule (W1R2W1R3...) and progress. To show the progress you can make a round progress bar and indicate running (red) and walking (green) and where you are in the schedule. A bit like the standard indicators on my VivoActive 3.

The visual progress bar is a good idea, I'll add that to my to do. Showing the complete schedule in the form you suggest is a problem for some of the training sessions due to their length and the small screen estate you have to work with, I've posted the complete schedule in the support topic though, so you can check there prior to your run. Cheers, Peter.

I just completed the 10 week schedule and really enjoyed using this app to accomplish my goal. Simple to use, easy interface to navigate, and just enough data in the display that I could find what I was looking for at a quick glance during my runs. Thanks!

Super! Once you feel ready to go for the 10k distance, be sure to check out my Start To Run 10k app: https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/36914aae-ed74-4523-b26b-c0c8966e10a1

Small glitch fixed immediately by developer. Simple easy tool to motivate me back to running

Not easy to use whith for runner 630, without up and down. And we can't manage the personal time of walk and run
August 30, 2017, peterdedecker
It's by design that you can not choose the personal time to walk and run: the Start To Run 5k app features a training program that gets harder (ie less walking) the further lesson you'll get to. To choose the lesson on touch devices you can tap the upper or lower half of the screen to either go a lesson up or a lesson down, if you have an idea how to improve the experience for you on your forerunner 630 I'm more than welcome towards your input in the support topic: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/developers/connect-iq/connect-iq-showcase/157092

Awesome . Haven't run in years , but this is really helping me get back into it. Would be nice to see some additional fields like total activity steps , calories etc

Thanks for the feedback Heine, I've added your suggestions to my todo list. Cheers, Peter.
