    How To Avoid Shin Splints?

    You posted in the wrong forum for your topic. There's an Injuries forum for this. And even if you're selling Max running shoes, it's probably okay to post useful articles from it, but why did you post the same thing in two forums (neither of which were in the Injuries forum)?
  2. My post above was to women because women seem to be targeted most of the time, but the same rule applies to men. And if you are a teenager or a child, be even more careful because some dangerous people on the internet pretend to be women or teenagers or even children to their chosen target. Never give out where you live, your phone number, your real name, or other information. We don't need another missing teenager or child, and you don't need the potential nightmare a stalker or scammer can give you.
  3. If any woman on this forum gets a message out of the blue from someone they have never interacted with, be very careful. Look to see if they have posted in any of the forums. Look to see how long they've been a member. A genuine, honest member will not pm someone they have never interacted with on the forum, especially not after being a member for only 6 hours. A genuine member will ask how to use the app or how to do the program in one of the forums instead of asking you, and their question will be specific, and not something that makes zero sense. And if such a person asks you where you live or asks for any other personal information, report that message immediately. And ignore any messages that attempt to produce guilt if you call them out on their behavior. There appears to be such a person on this forum and my concern is that I am not their only target - and that one of their targets will give out private information with dangerous results. Be safe. Be smart.
  4. Weight training would be good. Also, walking on at least two of your days off is good, too.
  5. You need to change your phone setting. You need to set it to not sleep for at least 30 minutes.
  6. You cannot really customize much in the app. You can change to metric or not, you can make the voice male or female, and you can make a playlist, but I've never seen a way to customize a race day or to customize the training. The training follows a set program. The app I bought is c25k but I'm pretty sure all of the others are similar.

    3 days a week?

    You run 3 days a week and walk 2-3 days a week. For example, you might choose to run on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Then you would walk on Tuesday and Thursday and possibly Saturday and then take a break on Sunday. Or you might take your break on Saturday and walk Sunday. Or you could just take a two-day break.

    App Questions please.

    The voice tells you when you are halfway through. At least mine always did. Also you can make it metric or not. Your choice.

    App Questions from a New User

    That is not what they were talking about. They were talking about not knowing whether to run on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, or if they should run on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, or what days they should run. They did not know that they could run on any days they chose.

    Annoying keyboard clicks

    If something like this doesn't help (see below) then maybe you need to contact the company that made your phone. https://www.google.com/search?q=turn+off+annoying+phone+clicks+on+Android&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-1-m

    Do you start at beginning

    I wouldn't. I would look at the app and decide where I thought I could begin, and start there. If it was too difficult I would go to an earlier week. If it was too easy, I would go to a later week.
  12. Week one would probably be too easy for you. I don't know how many weeks are in your training, but you could start halfway into it, and see how that works. Only you can tell what is too easy and what is too hard. The best way to figure that out is to just jump in one of the weeks.

    Treadmill or Incline Trainer?

    If you get one that can be put away, it might be put away and forgotten. If you get one that can incline, it has the potential to give a better workout.

    Nervous about using treadmill at gym...

    Treadmills at a gym are supposed to have a little thing that you clip to your clothes. If you start to fall it comes off of the treadmill and turns it off. I don't remember if you can turn the beep off or if there are treadmills that don't have them at gyms. It has been a long time since I went to a gym.
