    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.
  5. 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.

    Run/Walk... or just run?

    If you can run 6 miles without walking, you don't need this app. You need an app to train you for a half-marathon or a full marathon, and start at least 5 or 6 weeks in, or wherever the level fits someone who can run a 10k without a rest.
  11. Mine has always given me the warnings. There's no way to turn them off.

    MisterMark, it sounds like you should go into Feedback on your app, and send them an email about your problem.

    Help!

    A 5k is 3.1 miles, in case you were not aware of that fact.

    Help!

    I rarely come here anymore so this is the first time I've seen your post. You absolutely can do a 5k if you are walking that far. The thing is that in a 5k you don't have to run. You can walk. You'll probably be at the tail end of the crowd but it is not against the rules to walk. Of course you can run as much as you feel capable of, then start walking until you feel like you can run again, and repeat.
  15. Contact the developer via Feedback in the app.
