  1. Hi I have worked my way up to doing the versa app (had to start with 30 second intervals and can now do 1 min ones. I have a couple of questions. 1. Where can I find the actual written programme so I can see how it progresses. 2. How can I repeat a week if the progress is too slow. So far all I have been able to find is to delete the app and reinstall it. There must be a way to skip forward and back, right? Thanks a lot
  2. Hello! I'm a middle-aged mom returning to running after taking a few years off. I completed C25K several years ago, then continued training and ran a few 5ks, a 5 mile race, and two half-marathons. Then I got lazy and depressed and I stopped running. I gained a lot of weight. I was so stressed out about my job, I started grinding my teeth in my sleep and I was having SVT episodes (rapid heartbeat). My doctor said that I had to reduce stress. In July of this year, I decided that I had enough and started C25K again. I also started eating low carb again. I've completed C25K, and I am working
  3. Hi everyone! I'd like to post my experience on being an absolute beginner to running and getting to the 10k mark. I found it very difficult in the beginning, and wanted to share some things I've learned and some tips that will hopefully help others. I started off doing the Zenlabs C25K and moved straight up to their 10K app. My fitness level was average, and all my running was done on a treadmill. It took 12 weeks and I'm 47 yrs. old. When I first started out it was hard. I mean, OMG I really wanted to get each running session over with. I hated it, complained to myself all the
  4. I’m trying out the power playlists available within the C25K app and I love the music so far, but my question is...will that subscription transfer over to other zenlab apps? I would like to move on to the 10k and half marathon, but I currently can only play the playlists from the c25k app.
  5. Hello Fitness / Running Experts, While doing running portions of C25K, 10K or marathon run/walk programs, 1) can one be running too slowly? 2) if they are too slow, is it really running, or is it fast walking mistaken as running? I believe I can instinctively say that I am doing running, although it's very slow. How do I make sure that it is not slow to a point where it is impacting relevance of the program or below the minimum running speed expectations of the program. How do I improve upon such issues? Thank you for helping! Background: I started with C25K and then on week 3 s
  6. Hi just downloaded this app as I have signed up for a half marathon. This year I did c25k and am running parkruns and have done 3x10k. Not fast but I get there. Which week should I start the app on? Thanks Kim

  8. Hello - beginner here - I'm trying to stay motivated and loving my C25K app but wondered if there is a way to keep the voice prompt telling me when to run and walk at the intervals but STOP telling me which round of running I'm on? I have a hard time not feeling like "UGH I have 4 more runs to go!?!?" I am way better at going HAM on the music I'm listening to and not knowing how many run intervals I have left and being pleasantly surprised when I complete the mission. Thanks! Summer
  9. Hi! So I've never run a race aside from grade school back in the 90s. I'm 36, just had my 2nd baby 7.5 weeks ago. I am a Massage therapist and have worked the ironman massage tent even when I was 8 months pregnant twice... Got inspired and now I want do so a 5k in 10 weeks. Am I crazy? Where do I even start... I never work out but have stamina and figured at the very least I can power walk this race
  10. Last year(16) I decided that I needed to improve my fitness and lose a little weigh as I was starting to feel a bit blaaa. I have never been a runner, but wanted to give it a try. I started with the c25k app... really struggled running for even the shortest time. Gradually I improved a little and could run for 20 mins slowly without stopping. As it started to get dark before I got home from work I stopped running around the country lanes(scared I might get run over) and stopped for a few months. I then got a treadmill in feb 17and from March 17 I set myself a goal of running 3 times a week for

    Super excited I found this free app to keep me motivated along with my fitness pal and Pacer to keep up with my steps. Just wish I could connect the C25k to MFP. Anybody have an idea?? Thanks & super day to y'all.
  12. So, C25K seems to be burning through my battery, even when I turn off back ground app refresh. I've don't workouts in the last week, the last being Monday morning, but the app accounts for 16% of may battery usage in the last 24 hours (all after I finished my workout yesterday morning, 17.3 hours of background usage, 0 time one screen) and 17% of my battery usage for the last week (1.2 hours on screen, so my two workouts, and 114.6 hours of background usage!). I have background app refresh turned off, and had location services set to "while using the app" until the last iOS beta software updat
  13. So, been using C25K and enjoying it. I have my phone set to allow the C25K to use my location "while using the app". But I have noticed that it keeps on tracking my location even after I've finished my workout and closed the app. Not that I don't trust you guys, but c'mon, you don't need to follow me home to make sure I'm OK! Is there a way to fix this? Am I missing a step or setting?
  14. I started c25k last week, finished w2d2 yesterday. I love running, but don't quite have the stamina for a full 5k yet, so here I am! I also weigh over 200 pounds (5'6") so it's slow going, but I am improving! Nice to meet you all.
  15. I have used the C25K app and now am on the 10K free app. Out of curiosity, I downloaded the 13.1 app. But this seems a totally different kind of app. Very little running. Run 4min/walk 2min? What is that all about? I can do that in my sleep. I expected the app to be more brutal than the 10K app. Am I missing something?
  16. Hi, I just turned 39 on Saturday and am from West Midlands in England. I started and completed C25k in 2009. Felt such a sense of achievement when I completed it. Once complete I started a one hour runner programme but cant for the life of me remember what happened - but suddenly I didn't do it anymore. I go tot the gym and do lots of spinning classes each week - really love it Anyway, as a teacher, I am on my summer break and thought what a great challenge to complete C25K again and this time, keep it up! As I go spinning I already have a level of fitness so decided to start on wee
  17. i have completed the C25K training and my first 5k is in 2 1/2 weeks. I have a 2 part question. 1. What should my plan be to gear up for a race? Just keep running 3 mi on say Mon, Wed, Fri. or Tuesday Thursday. 2. What should my plan be after that? Same thing? Mon, wed, fri or Tuesday , Thursday or maybe the 10k trainer, knowing that 5k would be easier if I could run further? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. God Bless!
  18. Hi All, I have an iPhone that I run (either outside or on an inside track). I would like to use my iPad on my treadmill. Does anyone know if you can sync C25K progress on the two devices? Thanks. Rich
  19. Hi. I'm a newb with C25k and honestly I don't use music on my Android very often. I'd like to play music while I run. However, I can't get the C25k app to find my Google playlists it does find some 10-year old Apple playlists which somehow migrated to my phone (I do not have the Apple player). What do I have to do to get the app to discover that Google playlist? Thanks.
