    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.

    New Runner

    I hope it does, too. If you are in the habit of going barefoot, wearing flip-flops, or sandals that don't have any kind of lift in the heel then wearing typical running shoes would put a stress on your legs. If your new shoes don't help and if wearing minimalist shoes doesn't help, you might try doing an internet search on the problems you're having, and you might consider going to a sports doctor to see if they have any ideas.

    Newb - Where to begin

    Also, I have a problem with a slower pace and I'm really sure it's because of the hills that are around here, so definitely the hills are a factor in your slower pace.

    Newb - Where to begin

    I used the c25k app as a trainer for maybe three months. Somewhere during that time, I got the Nike app and used them together. What I did, was let the c25k app run its course, and then I would continue walking and running, using the Nike app to track my distance and my speed - because it will keep tracking until you tell it to stop or the battery runs down. So, in essence, I turned them both on when I began my run and when I was done I turned the Nike app off and the c25k had already stopped before then.

    Can I do this?

    The number one thing to remember is that your health supersedes anyting the app wants you to do. I am not a doctor, but I would recommend that you research to see what your target heart rate should be for your age and health. To me, it seems high. If I were in your shoes, I would do fast walking instead of running, until I was able to run with a healthy heart rate.

    He Said I'd Never Be a Runner

    That's a great goal! It would be useful to keep in mind that the c25k program jumps way too much in week 5. Many of us have gone back and done weeks over several times. I'm no longer using the app. I'm running on my own schedule, and today I was able to run for 10 minutes without walking in between. For me, that is amazing. So, I would say to remember that your health is most important, and if you can't run as many minutes as they want you to, then do what you can. And remember, the fact that you are working on your goal makes you a winner!

    Have you thought about trying Minimalist Shoes? Regular shoes have a lift in the heel even if it isn't much. It's possible that could be an issue. I don't know, as I am not a doctor, but it might be worth checking into.

    Recovering from injury

    You can do it! I'd recommend going through old threads, especially those written during the last 12 months and look for any advice that might apply to your goals and your situation.
  12. You can't edit the distance. I wanted to edit it because it had recorded my miles wrong. I contacted Zenlabs and all they told me was to make the app more sensitive to my movements, which obviously did not answer my question.

    I’m starting over tomorrow

    Yep, you got this.

    Training for April 5k

    Today I ran for 10 minutes and 5 seconds without a walk break between. I have never run that long. The run was slightly downhill which helped, and it was towards the end of my run. For some reason, I always run better after 25-30 minutes.. I'm not sure if I will be able to run the 10K I've committed to in October, but if I continue to improve I think it can be done. I'll probably see if I can do another 5K before then and, hopefully, I won't be sick and will be able to have a faster pace/time.

    Apple Watch

    Having the paid version of this app is no guarantee that the Apple watch will work with it. For me, although c25k offers to work with Google Fit, and Google Fit claims to be connected to it, it never writes to Google Fit. I think it's because Google Fit doesn't really accept it. Like I said, I have not seen any way for the c25k app to connect with any other app besides Google Fit. That doesn't mean it won't do it, but I have the paid version and I'm just sharing my experiences.
