    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.
  4. 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.

    I made a comment at the end of one of my threads but I think it should be its own thread. Find it sad that so many people often get no answers to their questions, but I hardly ever come on here and I think most people who have had some experience are also gone. People come and go rather quickly on this forum. I rarely come here anymore, and the people who were active when I was training for my 5k seem to also be gone. I think most people don't get answers to questions because no one knows the answers. They are new, too. I would recommend reading old threads. And do a lot of research online. The app that brought you here follows a schedule created elsewhere so you should be able to find info about almost any question you have. (Problems with the app can be best helped by going to "feedback" in the app, which lets you send them an email.) Remember, you can also get really bad advice online so check in several places before you decide to believe something.

    I totally understand. Back when some of us were conversing on here fairly regularly, week 5 was the hardest. Most of us went back to week 4 several times. I don't know if anyone actually got beyond week 5, because the jump it makes is unrealistic for most people. After doing week 4 a few times, I just started running and walking as I felt I could, using the Nike app to keep track of my time, distance, and pace. And I started coming on here less and less. I don't regret using the c25k app. It was incredibly helpful to get me out there when I didn't really want to run. But after week 4, my stamina doesn't match its expectations.
  11. The distance includes all the time spent running and walking with the guiding voice.

    I want to adjust routine with c25k

    You're supposed to run 3 days a week, walk 3, so you could do the others on your walking days. For example, Mon, Wed, Fri - run Tues - squats Thurs - pushups Sat - sit-ups Or you could do pushups and situps on run days, since they are upper body. Just wait a few hours between the exercise and the run. As for which one (exercise or run) to do first, do the one you want to be best at first.

    We did day 1 - starting was the hardest, hopefully

    Much easier with friends, that's for sure!

    If you can do week 5, you are doing awesome!

    I never made it past week 5, so I probably can't help you. I did several weeks over and over, and that worked for me for a few months. I made a thread about the 5k I was planning to run in April 2019. Near the end, I wrote a schedule I thought was more realistic than the c25k schedule. I don't know if that will help.
