    Treadmill beginner help

    I agree. I just finished wk 1 day 2. But I don’t no what I am doing. Have to use treadmill so did both workouts at 6.0mph run speed while running and 3.5mph speed while walking. No clue though if that is right wrong or doesn’t matter. Seems this app is really just a timer ?? Doesn’t really say how many days to let go by between workouts. I am assuming it’s three days every other day ? Doesn’t say. Also not a lot of replies in forums. Hope expletive gets better but I did like the first two sessions so far.

    Advice, Help?

    This may be really dumb. But I just finished Day 1 and it was fine. But can’t find in the app what I do next. Do I go three days in a row am I supposed to take a day off between each run or two days off or none? Might be app challenged but can’t find that on here. Also, nothing on here saying how fast or slow I should be running. What pace am I supposed to go at ? Without this information, this app just seems like a timer I could just use a stop watch for. Any help? I am sure it’s not but help on how long between run days if any and how fast am I supposed to be running at first and then as you go. Is there a link with that info I may have missed ? Sorry for the long post all help is appreciated.

    5k in just 4 weeks?

    It appears you can skip weeks and start specific days. I am in the same boat. I haven’t ran since the Army almost 10 years ago and have my first 5k in 33 days. I started Week 1 / Day 1 today and plan on skipping some days to expedite things.

    Help Choosing The Right Treadmill

    This is a great treadmill. If you are still looking, I would go with it on Black Friday and try to get a deal. You can go to https://www.nordictrackpromocodes.com/ and get some extra cash off of your treadmill. This is the only coupon online that I found actually works. Good luck!

  9. I just started using C25K app. During the run I set my phone on the dashboard of the treadmill, so it doesn’t automatically track my distance. How can I edit an entry to include my total distance, as reported by the treadmill. I understand it won’t be able to track distance for walking and the distance for running, but I’d like to track my total distance. Help appreciated.

    Week 5, Day 3 - WTF!!!

    Sounds like a great idea! Seems odd to me that run6.1 is so much easier than 5.3. Just substituting 6.2 for 5.3 looks good too
  19. 4 mph for walking and 5.5 mph for running is certainly faster than me. I have done semi regular sessions on fixed bike so my fitness is better than nothing. I have never tried jogging or running before. My walking pace is around 3mph and jog at 4.5 mph. that’s enough to get my heart rate up to a hard working level. I am hoping to get hooked on running and losing weight and controlling my blood pressure.

    Advice re warm up

    Hi Wyni I'm a Newbie in my 50's too. I also have done two of the c25k runs. I live in Australia so the weather is really starting to warm up so I decided to use the gym running machines. When I have had muscle pain in the past it's been sore legs when trying to walk after a hard work out. There a lots of advice out there for sore muscles. Magnesium supplement is for muscle health. Having warm muscles is important, compression shorts help with muscle temperature and blood circulation. YouTube has loads of stretching/warming up routines to try. Hope you have a more comfortable time on your next run

  24. I would like to go out running without my phone, but Apple Watch app says week 1 day 1, but phone says week 9 day 2 of 10K trainer PRO. How can I sync these?

    Apple Watch question

    In the Watch app on your phone, make sure that you find the C25K icon, and tick ‘show app on watch’
  26. Someone use to run and had the app . There no access to their phone anymore is there anyway to see how far they ran?? It really important to me that I found this information out.
