The past summer has been seemingly chock-full of 5ks, 10ks and half marathons (let’s not even acknowledge the madness of a full marathon). The achievement of running a certain distance is very much a beacon for self-improvement, and in turn, the App Store has been steadily growing with fitness-related and running-focused apps.
10k Runner is one of the best for beginners, having already been downloaded well over a million times. It’s also one of the original apps taking the couch to 5k-style approach.
Its approach is to use human voice coaching to help you get started – focusing on running and walk intervals to get you to 5k in 8 weeks, and, if you want, to 10k in another 6 weeks.
So, if you were considering getting up on your feet but just needed that little bit of encouragement that for some reasons feels so much more helpful coming from your Apple device, we’d definitely recommend 10k Runner.
The best part is, it’s currently available on the App Store for absolutely nothing.
