If you haven't joined a program yet, you can select Sparkspeople's 5K Your way Walk/Jog Program at the top of the team's main page. Then select which one you want to join (beg, intermediate, etc). This will let you track 3 days a week and it will post automatically to your My Trackers - My Fitness for the days you track.

You can also scroll down to the end of the team's main page for team goals and you can select join goal. Then it will appear on your my trackers other goals.

Hope this helps. Took me a little while to figure this out too. Have fun.

Happy, welcome.

You need to join one of the programs to get to track the much you need. I hope you found it?

Hi everyone,

I am new here, but not new to SparkPeople. Where do I find my personal tracker for this. I don't see it on my team pages nor do I see it on my fitness page!

Thanks!

Yes, 3 days of the week. 3 consecutive days or as convenient.

Is this just three days a week - I am assuming this based on the training schedule. Should you do the 3 days on non consecutive days?

Hi

Quick question: does it matter if you run on the road or on a threadmill?

I've just started and on the threadmill due to weather conditions... Just wondering if there will be a big difference when I get outdoors to run


Thanks

Sorry for answering late. I think you can do it at your pace but it is good to master it well before moving on. Believe that you can do next time you take the run.

I have a question. I am technically in week 2 of the training. However, I still dont feel like I am ready. I was working through week 1 and couldnt run for the full 1 minute each time (more like 40 seconds). Should I continue to work on week 1 until I get it down correctly? Or move on to week 2 regardless?

Thanks! emoticon

I joined this program earlier today and did week one day one earlier tonight.
Every time I click 'track now' on the training program I get this message "We cannot find the goal that you are trying to track."
How do I log it?

Sharsue, Welcome to the team.

I do run on the treadmill most times so the issue of timing for intervals is not a problem. But for others here, I have seen them use the timer on their cell phones or a stop watch is used often times too.

I hope this is helpful.

Hello! I just joined the team and I'm planning to start on Monday, but I have what is probably a stupid question. I've scanned through the Discussion Forum and didn't see this addressed, so please forgive me if this question has already been covered:

How do you time your walk/run intervals??? I have a timer on my cell phone, but it seems like it would be a major hassle to reset it between each interval.

Any suggestions?

I really I do understand your question Dedrie. The best way to re-start without hassles is to leave the program completely then join afresh. You can leave the program by checking a button at the bottom of the page. You then join immediately and you have a totally fresh page.

Good evening, I'm new to the team. I have signed up for the 5k walk/jog training program. I have tried it in the past and it looks like it stored my old information on the tracking page. I'm trying to log my day#1 progress, but it won't let me update it to today's date with the numbers. Is there a way to reset the information currently in the tracker? I do hope you understand my question.

I am new to running and actually running in a 5K this coming Sat.

My question is, how do you improve pace and have the ability to run for longer periods of time. I have yet to even run a half mile w/out stopping to walk. Currently, I can run/ walk 4 miles in about 56 mins and would like to get 5 miles in at 45 mins.

Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I struggle w/ what to eat on days that I run. It's not that I'm not eating, but by evening time I feel light headed and dizzy. What do I need to be eating after a run?

5K is the same as 3.1miles

But if you wish to have all your distance in kilometres then you need to go change your settings at the Start Page. Click on "email preferences/account settings"

Any chance the chart where we enter our distance could include km since this is what we are training for.

I wish I could recommend a good watch for you. But you can check online shops for good sports watch, they have stopwatch and you can easily time your intervals too with a beep.

Nonna, sorry for not giving answers to your enquiries for so long. I think you need to run at a particular pace before SP will record it for you as jogging. Most often when we think we have jogged, it is still recorded as walking. I think it is their policy around here.

EXCIRA - I was going to say that you must have a goal of 10 miles set that you forgot about so it is showing 6 of 10 miles completed, but with the 6/12 also I am not sure. I just noticed the date of your post so am sure you have long figured this out.

I just logged my Walk/Jog for today and it tracked it as Walking 24 min mile. That is definitely not correct. I have to go back in, remove the activity and retrack it with a walk/jog option. Someone needs to fix this.

When I track my Week 2 workouts it is posting them as Walking 20 min mile. Is that correct? I am jogging also. I have been removing that post and reposting with the Walk/Jog option since I know I am doing that. I think the links need to be checked. Last week it posted them as Running or Jogging 6mph 10 min mile, which I don't think that is correct either since there is a Walk/Jog option. Either way, last week it tracked as a higher level of activity and this week (2nd week) tracks as a lower level of activity, that is definitely not correct. Thank you for looking into this.

Fitmay, you are welcome to running. I think you will need to track the second week privately using your SP's fitness tracker. Or just as Gmondello pointed out you can pose this question on the message board Fitness/Exercise section.

I hope you get a more satisfying answer there.

Have a nice week ahead.

Can't help you there but try Coach Nicole. She would probably know of a way.

Good luck to you.

Hello there!
I have done the program before... but now I'm coming back recovering from disease and plan to take it very slowly...
Does anyone know how can I track repeating the weeks... I mean I want to follow week 1 for two weeks.. week 2 for two weeks and so forth... just want to find a way to track it from the plan itself...
Thanks and happy running!

Breathing correctly while you run does matter.
I read from About.com's Christine Luff (think that's the right spelling) that using your diaphragm(pull in those Abs) while you exhale to fully empty your lungs of any carbondioxide, is crucial to give your body a good dose of clean oxygen while you run.
That helped me so much when I trained for my 2 & 3rd 5K's last year. Who knew? : )

@SOFTBALLMONKEY, I think Sparkpeople did a awesome job with this program compared to what I saw with the same program but different arrangements. Anyway, I feel the ultimate goal is to be able walk/jog a 5K after 5 weeks. I wish you the best.

Hi, all I am also new to the team but not new to running programs. As the new co-leader I will try my best to answer some of the questions posed on this thread.

Starting with 35ANGELS, I think what you ought to do is leave the team completely (find that at the bottom of the team's page), then re-join, I think that should give you a fresh page altogether. I hope to start my own training officially tomorrow. Hope this helps?

I got to the last week before winter set in, now I unjoined, then re-joined, but my mileage on my tracker doesn't erase? Like, I did w2d1, but my w2d1 is in there from back in Novermber. Is there a way to re-start, so it's erased?

( I hope that makes a little bit of sense. lol)

Does any one do this with the c25k app that is for the iphone? How does it compare? Or does it not? I did the first day of the app program but am wondering how to track it with this or just in general for sparkpeople.

I am in week 2 and I accidently typed in the wrong miles, now it will not let me change the mileage to the correct number as far as I can tell?

How do I use the tracker?

I joined today and did the first workout. It has a button that says TRACK NOW. When I click that, it takes me to a page that wants me to enter how many miles I went. I have no idea how many miles I went, I am walking indoors. So there is another link that says to click if you have no idea. I click that and it has a map. This map also wants me to make tracking points presumably to indicate the mileage I went!

This is pretty confusing. I guess I can just not use the TRACK NOW button that's included but that is easier than having to manually go to MyFitness and enter the stuff.

Started today -- and feel quite good about it!

Quick question -- other than the link sent via spark mail, is there another way to access the page where we track what we've done?

I think that's a great idea, SINCERELY4ME! Once you get comfortable there, you can move on. Your body will tell you what it can and can't do and pain is never good.

I read an article that said to make sure your foot strike is not from the heel. It can cause shin splints. Make sure your foot stikes mid foot or on the ball. It has taken me some focus but can finally do it now without having to think too hard.

What surface are you running on?

No worries, I read some other posts and decided to just go back to week one day three of this program since that is what I know I am able to do. And I think I will do that for a week before I try moving on. Thoughts?

So I did all three days of week one. Did day one of week two, the whole workout, but later after my workout my chins were screaming in pain. They hurt all the way up until I went to bed the following night. This morning I am supposed to do day two of week two. I feel slight soreness in my chins. I feel like my fitness level is good enough to go on, but I don't want to get hurt again. Should I go back to day three of week one or back to the Walk a 5k Program?
