    Over 50

    I think the most important thing to remember is that your health is more important than the app's schedule. If you feel like running is not something you can do, I think you should walk, and only run the minutes you feel safe doing so. You can also do speed walking. You should talk to your doctor. Running is probably good for your health, and I know walking is.

    Training for April 5k

    So, I have not used the c25k app for a long time. I rarely get on these forums. I still wanted to give a quasi update. I'm still on for a 10k run in October, but I don't know how much of it I will run and how much of it I will walk. I hope this time I will not be sick like I was for the 5K in April. Thumbs up to all of you who are working to improve your health, working to successfully accomplish a 5k or 10k run, or have some other goal in mind that the c25k app will help you with.

    Distance vs Time week 6

    When I replied earlier, I did not have a Fitbit watch, but I got one for my birthday. And definitely it's really good for recording everywhere you go. I have not taken advantage of the Nike guided runs. To be honest, it's because I'm sure they will want me to go farther and faster than I'm capable of. I know that's a dumb reason to not even try it. (I've also switched it to miles.)

    Newbie - Just turned 39, need more energy

    Maybe your boys could run with you? And if you can, you could give them some kind of a reward at the end of each week.

    App Questions from a New User

    You just run any three days you want. I have never used the reminders, so I don't know what they do. I am supposing your phone make a noise or vibrates if that's turned on. I don't know if it would be daily or if you could set the days or what.

    Man, you are doing awesome!

    Distance vs Time week 6

    It's all about time. It starts when you tell it to start and stops when the time runs out. I've found the Nike app to be really good for keeping track of what I actually run (both time and distance). You can set it to tell you when you've run a half km or a full km. You can also set it for miles, so I expect it would also give half mile and full mile comments. I use km because of 5km and 10km runs (or walks, as the case may be). Got to give Nike app a minute to make sure it's connected to the GPS if you want a more accurate reading. The c25k app was very helpful for beginning training, for me. I ran both apps at the same time and had no problems.

    I never heard of running in Crocs. Are they comfortable to run in? Do they work well for you?

    Best of luck to you. You might also want to look at the keto forum on reddit

    Newb - Where to begin

    I'd recommend that you look through the different posts that have been made over the last year or so. You may find a lot of help that way.

    Galaxy Watch/App/Tracking

    I have the paid version of the c25k app and there's no way to save anything in the cloud. I haven't done it with this app but with other apps, when I finish a run, I take a screenshot and save it to Google Drive.

    Thank you. Your post adds encouragement to the thread. I like that.

    Can I view the maps from my runs?

    I've never seen maps on the app, though there was someone on here several months ago who said they saw a nap after each run, but they couldn't go back to look at it again. I keep track of my runs through the Nike app, which has recorded my runs most of the time as long as it's connected to GPS. (The C25k app never did even though it was always connected to GPS.)

    Dreaming of running with my daughter some day

    Sounds like you've got a great plan! I don't have any experience to help you with your questions. Perhaps there's a running group on Reddit or you can do online searches. This forum can go a long time without conversation, but maybe someone will answer your questions.
