  1. Hi! I am 36 and I have run off and on since I was a teenager. More off than on! My supervisor at work told me about the C25K app and I downloaded it last week. I have done the first two days of week 1 so far this week. My plan is to do day 3 in the morning. I really prefer to workout with a buddy (don't we all) and I really struggle to work out on my own. I am trying to do this program more independently because it is pretty much impossible to find someone to work out/jog with 3-4 times per week which is how often I am trying to exercise. It is just not realistic to only workout with a friend
  2. The dreaded shin splints. We've all had them. Which running technique/stretches has helped you the most to overcome this painful condition?
  3. What is your favorite running shoe? Are you a heel striker? Midfoot? Forefoot? What has worked for you? New Balance? Inov-8? Where did you find the best deals? Where have you had the most help? Share your stories with the community. We'd love to hear them all.
  4. I have syncope which really isn't a big deal if I wanted to sleep all the time. Syncope means I faint or black out when I stand or when I do something that should raise my blood pressure even slightly. This is caused by a series of events that all come from hypotension, or low blood pressure. This is the short definition of course. Either way, it doesn't happen every single time. When I decided to lift weights was when I became very aware of my syncope. I just cannot get my heart rate up consistently to get a good workout in. Not to mention I looked odd constantly yawning while lifting. It's a
  5. I need some advice! I need to find shorts to run in that don’t ride up every 2 steps. I have thick thighs and a big butt (lol) from riding horses my entire life and it’s near impossible to find a pair of shorts that fit. I found a pair is Nike’s that I love but haven’t been able to find them again. Any info would be very helpful!!
  6. I’m not sure if I should take a small break and just do it Monday Wednesday and Friday or everyday back to back?
  7. 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
  8. Hiya, I'm a first time runner here in Ireland. I'm doing this to tone up and lose two stone in weight. I went for my first run on 29/12/2018. I have been so sore since then...it really hurts to walk. It's not isolated to one area but goes from my hips to my ankles. Is this normal? Looking forward to hearing all your views and success stories x
  9. Hey guys my name is Lynn I am 19 and 300lbs, I am new to this today was the 2nd day and my legs felt like lead! I was sure at some points I wasn't even jogging but I was a couple times I walked. I took two 10 minute breaks but I finished it. I ways wanted to run and finally decided to do it even if it is hard!
  10. Hello I completed the program two years ago and then fell fell off. I’m starting again, having lost some weight and gained terrifically proved blood numbers by following a Real Food/LCHF diet. I’m looking forward to building up to a 5K, being in much better shape to start with than last time.
  11. Hi guys! It's AL here! I've begun to run for 6 months. I had little knowlegde on running. I'm trying to get better at the moment! I've a trail running challenge on March in which I have to run 50k for the first time on jungle and mountain landscape. I've read many tips and tricks for first time jungle marathoners. However, I don't really understand about fitness tracker. Which brand I should chosse? Apple, Garmin, Fitbit,... ??? and Which type should I choose? Which modem I should use? Does you guys have any suggestion? Thank you first!! P.S: I would love to buy a waterproof

    I'm here to train and be able to run for a few miles without being overly winded. As it stands I can't run a quarter mile without being winded.
  13. Hey guys, which music do you like to put on while running? Which songs give you the most adrenaline?
  14. In 2009, I reached my goal of running a 10k in an hour and then I got shin splints training for a half marathon. It hurt and it got hot and I quit to "heal". After that injury, I started and quit over and over. Always, I remembered how good it felt when I could easily run a ten minute mile, and those days when I would run even 1-3 minutes faster per mile, but I never reached those levels again. Years later I learned the shin splints happen when you scale up too fast, and that half marathon was too much too soon. Now, nearly a decade later, I am older, fatter, and slower. I am going for the

  18. Please guide me with the ideal time for treadmill running.
  19. Hi all, I just started the 10k program. I have been running for a few years but i have not been able to break the 5k threshold. If i don't get tired first then I will have joint problems or tired muscles. So i thought to give this program a try. I started the first day and the lady told me to run for 10 minutes. I did. She told me to walk. I did. The repeated. The third round, I could not complete the full 10 minutes without walking. There was a few big hill incline which might have contributed to my failure. My question is that since i was unable to run the full ten minutes o

  21. This is my first time being open to people I don't know, but I figured it would help this time around. I've fallen off my weight loss goals countless of times, and I can usually chalk it up to my depression, bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder. Many people don't understand mental illness, but it is something so many people struggle with every day, myself included. These past few months have been bad. Usually I have a few bad months at a time, but I can sometimes see the light at the end of the tunnel. This time, though, it's completely dark at the other end, which is terrifyin
  22. How is running the best weight loss workout?
  23. Hi all, i started C25K about a year ago and I made it to the end! After I finished I stopped running, stopped working out, and stopped eating right. It's time for that to change... again. I know I have done it once. I want to be there again and go further. So here is to running. Age:22, Height:6'3'' SW/CW: 294, GW: 220
  24. Hey Everyone - I am new to running, I started doing this with the purpose of learning to run, becoming the runner I always wanted to be and losing some weight. I have yet to start training with the application, and have completed three 5k's. Now these, I have done while walking/jogging. And I am really enjoying them. I am also from Connecticut. Looking forward to some improvements.
  25. Been on a walking profile with the military for 5 years. Finally not in severe pain to run and starting to run after 5 years after surgery to my ankle and foot. I am in decent shape for a 40 year old. Any and all help is encouraged and accepted.
