I started mine on a treadmill.  It worked out just fine for me!

I started mine over a year ago on the treadmill – some of them are really easy to set up with the interval changes which makes it easy too.  You can also redo a few weeks outside once it warms up! Good luck you can do it!

I have been doing this on a treadmill…I am super new to running so I started at 5mph as my jogging speed and am going to restart the program at like week 4 or 5 at 5.5mph…then once I finish it again start it up again at 6mph….

Yup, I do it on the treadmill… I’m on the tail end of week 4. I usually run at a 6 (10 minute mile) and walk somewhere between 3.5 – 4 depending on how well I’m feeling.

If you can, try to vary the elevation. Putting it at 1% incline for a few minutes at a time will help simulate the variation of running outside and help you avoid repetitive strain injury from always running in the same position.

Good luck and have fun! And get outside when you can!

I started this about 4 months ago and have been going back and forth between a treadmill and running outside depending on the weather. I’m not using it to actually train for a 5k but more to get into running shape. It’s definitely a great app! I like @jboltz19‘s idea of starting the program over once you complete it at a certain speed. I’m definitely going to give that a try now. Good luck everyone!
