    KristinaB did you ever get an answer?

    Apple Watch

    There's something really wonky with this app. I paid for the pro version of 10k. It WILL NOT sync a run from the watch to the iPhone. Yes, my iPhone is on and the app is open. What am I doing wrong...(besides not switching to a different app to track my runs?)

    I've never seriously ran in my life

    But I want to. I've been overweight since I was 10 and at 28 years old I want to change that. I'm tired of being unhealthy and always tired. I've always heard good things about C25K and how it's helped a lot of people get more active. I'm a mother of three and a nursing student, so more energy would be great. I hope to have dropped at least 50 lbs by the end of this year and to be able to run for an extended amount of time.

    The Next Six Months

    My goals for the next six months: -Get moving more -Make healthier food choices -Be able to run for 30 minutes straight -Lose 50 lbs at least
  10. I don't think women are allowed to do it on their knees, it's probably because you need strength to be in the air force.
  11. As Calories said, you don't need a special diet. Just keep a tab on what you eat and don't have "snacks". You should also do strength training like Pushups and Situps to help you burn fat. Running alone is not enough.

    Using app second time

    You should use the 7 Minute Workout, 200 Situps and 100 Pushups apps along with C25K. Apparently it can torch fat. It's also important to have a healthy diet and get some strength training in too.

    C25K or type 2 diabetes!

    To try and prolong my lifespan, to prevent type 2 diabetes, to have a healthier lifestyle and to feel better about myself, I have entered a half-marathon (crazy fool, I hear you say)! I don't do thing by half, pun intended. Approaching my 56th birthday, I'm ready for the challenge!!!

    I’m a 32 year old mom who just signed up for my first 5k. I walk a lot at work, but don’t really work out on a regular basis. My event is a benefit for suicide awareness in my hometown. I’m really going to push myself to run the whole thing, but if I can just complete the event I’ll be happy with myself.

    Back at it

    I’m feeling much the same way as you! We can do this!

    Back at it!

    Hi Everyone! I'm 105 days from a big event and have wanted to get back to running for a long time. I'm starting slowly and trying to stop my brain from remembering what I used to do (8-10 years ago). Today was my first day out and it was great. I have a running partner in my 2 year old Golden Retriever and half the battle is having him run with me and not drag me along at his pace. I'm looking forward to this new challenge and will surely need the support of others who are in the same boat.

    Thank you!

    Tomorrow I begin my consolidation runs. Thank you so much Zenlabs for this wonderful app to start on the road to fitness. It’s not always been easy (and my target was only a week per month).....I have run almost every other day but repeated a week for a month until week 6 when I did 3 weeks then week 7 for 2 and weeks 8&9 for one week as progress to the next step seemed smaller/slightly less of a mountain to climb as stamina increased. Never would I have thought that I would run for 30 mins, to say I’m chuffed is an understatement. My next target is to speed up gradually as my pace is slow, I’m running about 4/4.8 mph instead of about 6.2 being equivalent to 5k. However I’m in my 50’s and at least a stone over the weight I’d like to be and a good bmi so I am so very happy to have completed the challenge. The fact that I’ve taken my time is down to an initial comment I read here saying “I’m repeating week X until I’m not desperate for the walk rests” so that’s what I did and it means that running has been part of my life now for 6.5 months and I look forward to the next one. Thank you for the comments I’ve read, the admissions that it was tough and the inspirational phrases, my greatest companion amongst them being: “No matter how slow you are you’re still faster than the person on the couch” Stick at it it’s so rewarding, good luck!
  20. Is there a way to change the schedule so that some days are all running??

    2019/2020 goals

    My goals for this year and next is to train for the Bolton 2020 iron man race. And to run the London marathon

    I think the most important thing to remember is that your health is more important than the app's schedule. If you feel like running is not something you can do, I think you should walk, and only run the minutes you feel safe doing so. You can also do speed walking. You should talk to your doctor. Running is probably good for your health, and I know walking is.

    Training for April 5k

    So, I have not used the c25k app for a long time. I rarely get on these forums. I still wanted to give a quasi update. I'm still on for a 10k run in October, but I don't know how much of it I will run and how much of it I will walk. I hope this time I will not be sick like I was for the 5K in April. Thumbs up to all of you who are working to improve your health, working to successfully accomplish a 5k or 10k run, or have some other goal in mind that the c25k app will help you with.

    Distance vs Time week 6

    When I replied earlier, I did not have a Fitbit watch, but I got one for my birthday. And definitely it's really good for recording everywhere you go. I have not taken advantage of the Nike guided runs. To be honest, it's because I'm sure they will want me to go farther and faster than I'm capable of. I know that's a dumb reason to not even try it. (I've also switched it to miles.)

    Newbie - Just turned 39, need more energy

    Maybe your boys could run with you? And if you can, you could give them some kind of a reward at the end of each week.

    App Questions from a New User

    You just run any three days you want. I have never used the reminders, so I don't know what they do. I am supposing your phone make a noise or vibrates if that's turned on. I don't know if it would be daily or if you could set the days or what.

    Over 50

    Hi I’d like to get started training for a 5k. I am 54 years old, and overweight. I was once a runner in my 20s and early 30’s. Any advice? I’m also afraid my heart isn’t ready for this, ie I'm afraid of having a heart attack.
  28. Hi all! I tried searching the forums but couldn't find any answers (maybe I just suck at searching). Anyway, I just installed C25K and did W1D1. The app just says to run 3 days a week but it doesn't let me set the days. Do I just do any days I want? Also, I have "Reminders" turned on, but when does it remind me and what does it remind me to do? So for I like all the audio cues and feedback, but some of the app stuff and run scheduling I either can't figure out, or the it might be lacking. If anyone can help me out, I would really appreciate it.

    Which is which

    I would argue with recommending any kind of diet as an absolute one. E.g. keto. Keto definitely works well for people whose genetics is built for a fat-based diet, but that's not absolute at all, people who are born with a metabolism that promotes using carbohidrates as energy source would go very, very bad on keto. There are no absolute methods in nutrition. It should always be set specifically for one's genetics.
