App Review: Zombies, Run! 5k


Last night was my first workout using the Zombies, Run! 5K.  This takes you through the scary experience of being outside during the zombie apocalypse.  The app features an 8 week, 3 days a week, proffessionaly made exercise routine which is setup to get you ready to run that 5K.

Being in the Pacific Northwest it rains a lot.  The app has two modes which it works in, either by GPS or with your phones accelerometer.  When using accelerometer tracking you don't get the cool map that the GPS mode makes of where you run outside each day, but it allows you to use a treadmill to complete the exercise.  My first run was on a treadmill and it gives you some pretty awesome motivation to keep your speed up, just when I thought maybe I should slow down, I find myself wanting to take off faster because there is a zombie right behind me.

The voice acting on the clips which it plays are top tier, they didn't cut any corners, or make any subpar effort when making these.  If someone didn't know better they might lead to another War of the Worlds with people really believing that we are in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.

For those that like a good zombie story and want to get off the couch, this is the app for you.  I highly recommend the $1.99 on the Google Play Store.  Once you get done with this and are a really runner they also have the full Zombies, Run! app to continue the fun.
