I'm in Week 5 and I'm starting to think about the pace of my run.

Is there an Android app that will give me an audible cue for what pace I'm running?
Nothing fancy, I don't need to track the progress of the Olympic track team
My C25K app shows me what pace I did after my run, but that doesn't help me much WHILE I am running.

Thanks

Runkeeper or map my run should work for you . I use run keeper
On my iPhone and set it for 1 min updates for distance, av pace and current pace
I'm sure there's an android version

Happy running

I use RunDouble for android. It tells you current pace, current distance, total distance, etc. You can set it to tell you this data at several (dozenish) different intervals. It also tells you when to walk and when to run during C25K. I couldn't get a GPS lock the other day and I was just lost without my RunDouble!

I was using map my run which tells you every mile what your pace is, BUT i have since realised it was inaccurate in calculating distance - must lose gps signal. Now i work out my route on the computer and time myself using my watch.

How did you know it was innacurate? I use MMR and am now in a panic! I'm on week 5 and it's all I've used to track distance and MPH.

I went on a run with a friend, we did her usual 5k route and ibstruggled, it took longer than the 5k mapmyrun told me when i run at home with my phone tracking it. I went onto my computer and calculated my normal route and it was about 0.5k short of what my phone said i was doing. Days before my first 5k race as well :-(. I just presume i lose signal somewhere, by all means use it but i would recommend double checking your route online as well as a precaution.

When i Googled this it seems others had experienced similar problems.

Happy running

I use cardio tracker for android to track my exercise. It is free! It shows your speed or pace (you can choose which you want) in current, min, max, and average, and well as a bunch of other stuff.

*Correction* That should be Cardio Trainer, not tracker. Sorry!

I graduated c25k recently and that's what I was looking for. So far, I've been most impressed with Nike+. It tells you every mile your pace for that mile, your overall pace and your time.
