  1. Hi everyone, Many, many years ago while still in school, I was a runner. Sprinter on the track team and distance runner off season. As the years went by (in the blink of an eye) I had an array of health obstacles from heart surgery to torn meniscus to fluctuating weight gains blamed on "getting older". Over this past summer I had an awakening as my weight once again put a hurting on the scale. I had heard of this C25K app and was curious if I could do it and get my aging self back in shape and stay there this final time. So, with a goal to enter and run a 5K in a respectable time along with a weight loss of 65 lbs, I am committed and determined to get fit and maintain good health from here on out. I chose the name Run4Health as a reminder of why I am here and what I intend to accomplish. Along the way if I can help others in their journeys then I will be more than glad to do so. Good Luck to everyone here, let's do this!

    Trying to lose fat (fast as possible)

    Definitely want the "slow burn" to utilize fat stores. Pace yourself between 65%-75% max heart rate for longer runs to burn the most fat. Also keep up with the healthy nutrition so you don't sabotage all your hard work.

    Training After Week 8

    I had finished the app not long ago and I was wondering the same thing. I downloaded the 10K app to start out with week 9 but I ended up doing the 5K app a second time at a higher speed. When I finish it for the second time, I will continue on the longer runs for further endurance. Hopefully I'll get to the point where I can enter a 5K and finish with a decent time.
