    Completed 30 mins. Thanks C25K

    Today i completed 30mins jogging. The pace is still a bit slow. I could do 4kms in 30 mins. But still very much happy coz I couldnt even run 4 mins at start of the program. With balanced diet I also reaped sweet benefits of weight loss. Took me almost 12-14 weeks to reach 30mins. Although there have been some delays due to injury but I did not quit and hence completed it. Since my stamina was too less, alternate day jogging was not sufficient and so I used to jog daily(except Sunday) upto first 5 weeks. Also repeated the week wherever needed. Week 5 is toughest but remember not to quit and repeat if necessary. Every week seemed tough and hard to finish. But the thumb rule was not to quit and repeat until you finish a target week. Dont forget pre and post stretches at it helps prevent injury and helps in recovering. Take a break whenever legs are sore or in deep pain. Best thing about the app is its breakdown to achieve the target. Must say its very skillfully developed. Thanks C25K :-)

    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?

    New to Running

    Hi. I am a seasoned “walker”. I have been walking an hour on the treadmill elevated to level 10 (3 days per week) for about 2 years. But I have decided that I’d really like to run a 5k or maybe even farther. The walking has helped me lose about 20 lbs and feel healthier but I still need to lose the last few stubborn pounds. Hoping that starting to run will assist in that (even though the calories burned is less in the beginning, I am aiming for a bigger goal) .That said, Day 1 complete.

    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$$!

    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!!

    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.

    Starting running in your 60's

    I started C25K 8 weeks ago, hoping to do the magic 5K run before I turn 62 in January. I wanted to do it while I still can. Today I ran 5K for the first time in 35m10s. I am thrilled. Huge thanks to the C25K app. It never asks you to do more than you can do.

    Same issue. There seems to be very little information or support on how to use the new apple 4 watch integration. If anyone from zen labs monitors these forums would be great to have a reply/guidance. I’m using the 13.1 app by the way.

    October week one

    Zen labs app for C25k is really good. I just finished week 4. It was tough but I did it with no stops!! Tomorrow I’m starting zen labs 100 push-ups. I hope it goes ok I just can barely do one push-up!!!

    Off days

    On my days off from C25K, I have been power walking on the treadmill at a brisk pace for me about 4mph. As my c25k mileage is picking up I have found my knees getting really “tired” I don’t feel like I’ve injured them but rather just overuse soreness. Is it a bad idea to be power walking like this on the days off? Should I try a different exercise for the off days instead of walking which is using the same muscles as running??

    Week 6, day 3.... so hard!

    I finished week 8 and the C25K programme a few weeks back now. I am now running two 5K runs per week and really enjoying it. So pleased as I never dreamed I'd be able to do this a few months ago :-)

    Week 6, day 3.... so hard!

    I managed to nail everything up to week 6 day 3. I can get 15 mins through the 22 mins run but then I always seem to run out of steam (my legs just decide enough is a enough) - I'm gutted if I'm honest as I'd been doing so well up until this point. I'll keep trying as I'm sure I'll get there eventually, but any tips would be greatfully received. UPDATE: Finally done it at last! How? by simply slowing my jogging speed a little; that's it Looking forward to starting week 7 now - 25 min runs here we come :-)
