    C25K Take #2

    Hey everyone, I never really knew that these forms were here. My story begins 3 years or so ago when my daughter decided that she wanted to do a 5k for her birthday. i agreed and we started the c25k program about 3.5 months before the race. We did it everyday to fit the program to our needed schedule. I ended up losing close to 90 lbs in three months ( also eating chicken and rice). We ran the 5k and loved it. We ended up running five 5ks total in 2 years. then we kinda stopped when i moved back home. We have not ran since. I've gained all 90+ back and do not like this feeling, so we are starting it back up for take 2. Can't wait to see where it takes us this time..

    I did 2 5 Ks last year. Now, I am motivated to do another one this October , after being treated for Breast Cancer. Thought this app would help get me on track!

    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.

    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!

    Newb - Where to begin

    I used the c25k app as a trainer for maybe three months. Somewhere during that time, I got the Nike app and used them together. What I did, was let the c25k app run its course, and then I would continue walking and running, using the Nike app to track my distance and my speed - because it will keep tracking until you tell it to stop or the battery runs down. So, in essence, I turned them both on when I began my run and when I was done I turned the Nike app off and the c25k had already stopped before then.

    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!!!
