Yes, it works.

I stuck with Lauras dulcet voice spurring me on when using the App. I remember doing the first run, and I really felt like I was going to collapse. I thought theres no way this will work. However, its surprising how quick you progress.

Ive just done the Liverpool Spring 5K (yesterday), and the Liverpool Spring 10K (today).

Good luck to you

Yes 100% it works, did it last year, chose Michael Johnson as my coach, didnt really believe it could ever work when I started but within the time scale I was running for 40mins non stop (by running I do mean jogging not Usain Bolt!).
I sadly hurt my hip end of last year and had to stop running for some time but I am now back to it & have started part way through so as not to overdo it - I really enjoy it. I will personally never run outside only at the gym but anything to keep me fit.

It works. I did it last summer and can still run 5k. I hated running and found the first one the hardest of all. I was always saying I will never be able to run for 10 mins, 20 mins etc but I did every time. It helped me lose loads of weight. Not sure as never weigh myself but went down clothes size. Keep going. I did it with a friend and we are both so stubborn we would never give up. We do all of our runs together.

Would it work for a total non runner? Not run for years and no joke I couldnt run for 20 seconds let alone anything else, I have a running machine which I would love to use.

Yes it does

I hated running but did it and have 2 half marathons under my belt now

Ive discovered I hate them 🤣

But I love 10K and recently did a fab 5k round a wildlife park which was very cool.

I still return to the programme occasionally when Ive been off running or need a kick up the butt.

Give it a go, what have you got to lose...

And good luck to everyone who has signed up already

I was a total non runner, asthmatic and overweight.
