I used the app and found it very helpful.
indesisiv, I never knew about the correlation but it explains why my longest runs have me running like a 'real' runner towards the end instead of my usual snail's pace!

What sort of things did you do to improve? I tried the C25K follow-on podcasts but have discovered that I seem to move my legs quickly but don't cover much ground, as jogging in time to their beats-per-minute felt really slow, as if I had to be hovered in the air before landing!
I know one of my time factors in my local run (Harlow) is affected by the fact that the start and first part of the course are uphill; we're not talking Peak District steepness, but if all your training is on the flat (mine is on an old airfield) it feels like a mountain. There are a couple of other 'inclines' on the course; one of which is short and steep so I've always walked up it because the first time I did the run it had been raining so it was slippery. If I can face the mild embarrassment, I should try walking the first part from the start then my running on the rest of the course should be better. That's my theory anyway.
Procrastinating but planning to run this week; Mon and Tues are my zumba days so hopefully Thurs/Fri/Sun although not necessarily all three.....

Can't believe that I just ran for 20 minutes non-stop!
I struggled with 1 minute runs 5 weeks ago so I'm well-chuffed.
