  1. So I thought an update was due. I fought through the demotivation and ran anyway. I took all the advice and repeated Day 1 over and over, allowing myself to walk during most of the day's 8 runs. And when I did walk through a one-minute jog, I chose to see it not as a failure but as part of the process. Each jog was a success, whether or not I could do many of them. My first Day 1: Barely survived 3 of 8 runs. Nearly three weeks later: For the first time I actually jogged for all 8 one-minute runs of the Day 1 session. It was messy. I was out of breath. But I did it. Hap

  2. So happy to hear about your progress, Drum Dave! I just downloaded this app and did my first Day today. I definitely had trouble with it, and had to skip one of the runs because I was so out of breath, but it’s so great to see what persistence allowed you to do! Really motivates me to keep at this.

  4. There are two kinds of jobs in the mobile software development https://mlsdev.com/services/mobile-app-development: app development and app testing. App developers create applications that run on iPhones and iPads. This means you'll need skilled app developers to create apps that will work perfectly in these devices. On the other hand, app testers test the functionality and reliability of these apps before they're released to the public.

    Week 1, Day 1

    I’m nervous about starting this program. I think I’ve finally admitted to myself that I gained a few pounds and I’m not longer the fit, cross-country runner I used to be in high school. My goals are: - lose 25 pounds in the next 3 months - build your confidence - slim down thighs and calves a little - be able to run 30 minutes without stopping. Anyone else on here gain the freshmen 15 (or more in my case) and looking to work it off?

  6. Thank you! Just started Week 2 Day 1. I’m breathing much better and running much stronger. I am grateful I can play my music with another app and they both work together. I got a phone call though and it knocked out the c25k and I had to reboot. Also sometimes it shows me the calories burned and distance ran but not all the time.

  7. Hi, how are you doing with the program now that it’s been a few days? I usually run every other day to give my muscles and ligaments a chance to recover. This helps ease me back into running so that I’m never really sore. Also, running ridiculously slow in the beginning helps me get through the challenging days. Speed will come as you build up your strength and endurance- nothing wrong with taking things slow until that happens. Good luck!

    Let’s Go!

    Hello from Montana. Over the past few years I’ve really fallen out of shape. It ends today! I’ve committed myself to the C25K and 5/3/1 programs. I’ll also be taking the MTN OPS Conquer Weight Loss Supplement System.

    Week 3 Day 1

    I was really intimidated by the 3 minutes run, but I made it and it fills me with confidence. Happy running folks!

  12. Hi everyone! I'd like to post my experience on being an absolute beginner to running and getting to the 10k mark. I found it very difficult in the beginning, and wanted to share some things I've learned and some tips that will hopefully help others. I started off doing the Zenlabs C25K and moved straight up to their 10K app. My fitness level was average, and all my running was done on a treadmill. It took 12 weeks and I'm 47 yrs. old. When I first started out it was hard. I mean, OMG I really wanted to get each running session over with. I hated it, complained to myself all the

  14. The program is not realistic for true couch potatoes and it certainly is not realistic for people with serious health problems. The best rule of thumb is to run when you can, walk when you have to, and don't over do it, even if it means you can only go 5 minutes in a session.

  15. Thank you so much, Silver Pie! I will go back to week 2 then, for now. That sounds more doable at the moment. I didn't have to repeat week 1 or 2 but now I've come to week 3 I'm kind of stuck. Thanks again for your support! I needed that. :-)

  16. I repeated week 1 as well. I wanted to be certain I was settled in with that before moving on. One thing all of my "runner" friends have said about when they first start was it takes time... they all said repeating weeks was not a problem at all. As long as you are working it will come. I would like some advice for a new runner. My calf muscles get pretty tight. Any suggestions for a good warm up/stretching routine?

  17. 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 h

    Weight Loss Apps

    I'm sorry, I just reread your post. You asked about calories. MapMyFitness is great for tracking calories and interfaces nicely with either MapMyRun or Runkeeper.

    Weight Loss Apps

    I use both MapMyRun and Runkeeper. I use both because I like the while running statuses each provide. One reports your pace and distance every five minutes and the other provides status at each mile.
