    Training for April 5k

    I got the c25k app so I could run a 5k near the end of April. I repeated weeks 1 and 2, but I'm determined to stay with week 3 all this week. I don't know that I will repeat any weeks from here on, but I will only run as long as I can, even if that means on the last day of the last week I am running 2 minutes and walking 2 minutes. Saturday, I decided to do a long "run" that was at least half dirt road. I used the Nike app to track my distance because it seems to be way more accurate. The route was nearly 5K. Obviously, the c25k app stopped before I was done. Today, I missed the dirt road that leads to Main Street, and I ran/walked several minutes before I realized my mistake. I ended up going almost 6 k. It took me over an hour. I will probably not make that mistake again, but it was nice to know I could go that far. At this point, most of my runs consist of walking more than running. In any case, I'm really glad to have the c25k app, and the Nike app. I think they complement each other.

    Starting back

    Hello all - I am returning to running after a few years being off because of foot injuries. Looking to take things very slowly to avoid getting injured again.

    Hello, all!

    Hello, everyone! I'm a 29-year-old mom of 3 living in Colorado. I'm trying to get back in shape! I worked at a hospital, moving patients for over two years. I was walking 8-12 miles a day, moving patients! I got into really great shape. I left that job almost two years ago after moving an hour away and commuting for a year. I'm lucky if I walk 2 miles in a day now. I stand all day at my current job, so I feel exhausted by the end of the day, but without getting many steps in. I really want to get back in shape! My weight hasn't changed, but I'm a lot less muscular now. I just finished day 3 and I'm having a tough time staying motivated, but I'm looking forward to continuing this journey!

    In the back of my mind I knew I couldn't keep up, but I tried. I just couldn't get those 5 minute runs done without walking. Looks like I will be stuck on week 4 for a bit. I'm not giving up though. Thanks for reading. Happy running folks!

    Weightloss and Park runs.

    I've joined up to lose some weight, I've put on around 40lbs since my wedding in 2017 and need to sort myself out to get in better shape, I've done casual runni g before but never kept it up, hopefully c25k can keep me on track. I'm sound 207lbs now and looking to get down to 160ish and get some regular park runs in over summer. I'm a bit of a yoyoer so really going to give this my best shot.

    I finished the c25k app 3 weeks ago. Felt great to finish, but you know what? It feels even greater to keep with it. I have gone back a few weeks and started running for the distance and not the time. It has kept me going with a steady progression and now I absolutely feel ready to start week 9 of the c210k app! My first 5k will be March 23! I love running! My husband has also started running and that makes me happy!! Keep running everyone!!

    That is great! I’m really new to all this and don’t consider myself a “runner” yet, but I am getting there!

    Training for April 5k

    Ladies, I do apologize for not checking in. I regret to say my program is changing. I have been lurking the forums but not talking because I am embarrassed to say I am not training for a 5k at this time. I really hate starting something and not finishing but life is in the way. I will still be exercising but not this program. Happy running!

    Struggling

    Wk5d1 wk 4 should have been 2,4,2,4 instead of 3,5,3,5. Struggling with hip and back pain. Weather better less humid. Still slacking on leg strengthening serious depression.
