    Apple Watch on different week to phone app

    I am trying to use the app on my Apple watch 4 without having my iPhone with me on my runs. But the app on my Apple Watch doesn’t sync at all with my iPhone when I am finished. And it won’t let me use the app on my Apple Watch without it syncing. This was 3 days ago and it still hasn’t synced! I emailed them and we’ll see what they say. Such a hassle trying to use this with my Apple Watch in stand alone mode!!!

    Normal. Slow down if you have to. Always do a good thorough stretching after. Repeat weeks if you need too. Sometime the mind of Can Do, has to catchup with the body.

    Good job.

    Do over

    I think when you redo a day it just resets that day... I just finished week 5. YOU CAN DO IT. Give yourself permission to slow your pace for the 20 minute jog... And speed up when you feel your confidence go.... I did week 5 day 1and2 twice before my mind was ready to take on day 3 and the 20 minute jog...

    Is it possible to dial down the intensity of C25K?

    Slowing your speed down helps. If you find it hard this week... do what you can and redo the week more than once until you can.

    Am I too fat to jog?

    You are not to fat for it. But do start with a week of walking... I am 5ft 4 in. 182lb. Just completed week 5.

    Cadence for running

    Hi All - new couch potato with a goal of a 5K this spring! Question...the app has 3 runs per week. How should I space that out? I guess I was under the impression that I would be running every day. I started my first run yesterday and did the second today. I then realized there is only 1 more for this week. Also, what should I be doing the days that im not running?

    My lazy a$$!

    You are not giving up, just having a wee rest, once u feel better start again, but try not to give yourself a hard time, you will get there. Hope you feel better soon.

    My lazy a$$!

    I had to take a break from running for a couple of days due to illness. : ( I'm gonna have to start over basically. But I don't wanna give up!!
  18. I've started the half marathon train g but the app keeps going back to the warm up everytime I'm half way through. Any suggestions? Thanks
  19. I'm not any good at this

    Am I too fat to jog?

    Its up to you and how you feel about it. While running is much easier and softer on the joints the lighter you are, its very possible to run at any size or weight. You may even reap the benefits of additional weight loss by using the c25k program itself! Hope this helps.
  20. You can either use backpacking water filters which use a microfiltration system to rid the water of harmful bacteria, particles and other contaminants or camping water purifiers which use a combination of microfiltration along with chemical treatment (typically UV light) to eliminate bacteria, viruses, protozoa and other contaminants. https://iwaterpurification.com/best-ultraviolet-water-filter-reviews/
  21. Do you have recommendations for the best or most convenient portable water purification solutions? Preferably for a camping trip?

    My run went well! It hurt less than the last one! Lol That's a good tip. Dont focus on the next week just the next run! One step at a time. Happy running!!

    App quits & resets screen lock

    The app won't run in background if I lock my screen . I have given app all the permissions & set to run in background . It does run in background but as soon as the screen locks . The app quits & doesn't save progress , even if I set the app to lock it still does same . P20 pro android 8

    Apple Watch on different week to phone app

    After my first run the watch wanted me to synchronize with the ‘parent app’ I had to do it three times before both were on the same page. Same thing happened on the next day.

    If I decided not to run in the rain, I would never run ha ha. But it was fine on Tuesday morning just a wee bit windy and cold. How did your run go? You really can do this, don't think weeks ahead, just concentrate on your next run. Good luck

    Completed 30 mins. Thanks C25K

    HI .. I just completed week 5 yesterday and totally agree with you that it was the toughest. The idea of 20 mins jog without break petrified me through out the week. The 5 mins and 8 mins runs were difficult but was proud to complete the 20 mins jog with yes a 30 sec walk. Did not think I could do it but did so. Pace of my work out is also almost same as you and probably tad slower. Now that I crossed week 5 last day I do believe that I have at in me to finish the course. My goal is also the same as yours ie finish 5K in under 40 mins and then work my way to reduce time from there. I am aiming to participate in a 5K run by middle of Feb if n only if can start to run in under 40 mins. I am also after the runs doing strength training at my local gym but need to up my game in same. Maybe we can share info n data with each other to keep ourselves motivated and better advised.

    My lazy a$$!

    Greetings to you in Scotland ! Wow . You sound dedicated! That's good. ! I probably wouldn't run in the rain. Tomorrow is running day for me too. It really does help to get the running gear out so you have to go out for a run the next day ! I really hope I can keep this up!!

    Is it possible to dial down the intensity of C25K?

    I was able to do the first day work out even though it was hard. But I did repeat week one before moving to week 2. So I would recommend attempting to do the workout and if you need to back off some of the runs to a brisk walk and repeat the week until you have those 8 runs down. One thing I have found is that the first 2 runs and the last one are the hardest. The ones in between are the easiest because my body is all warmed up. This will increase your stamina. I have been a walker for exercise the past couple of years so this is quite challenging. I just did my week 2 day 1 and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.

    Am I too fat to jog?

    Hello! I have recently lost over 100 lbs and currently weigh 199lbs I am a 42 year old female standing 5'4 inches tall. I would like to try the C25K but wondered if I am too big? Should I try to lose more weight before I start? Thank you!
