    5k by September

    I thought weekly changes might be too much. I was (still am) quite overweight, over 50 and have never run seriously at all. I decided to try this (inspired by friends) but thought a week repeated for a month could work without being too intimidating. If I can achieve 5k by September I’ll be so pleased.

    Shorts that don’t ride up

    You can always get a pair of biking shorts. They are a little longer and if you get the ones with spandex in them, they fit nice and snug and won't ride up.

    Being able to run 10 minutes at a shot would still give a person decent 5K pace.

    Training for April 5k

    The schedule I would choose would be more like this: Week 1 - Run 30 seconds walk 1 and 1/2 minutes Week 2 - Run 1 minute walk 1 and 1/2 minutes Week 3 - Run 1 and 1/2 minutes walk 2 minutes Week 4 - Run 2 minutes walk 2 and 1/2 minutes Week 5 - Run 2 and 1/2 minutes walk 3 minutes Week 6 - Run 3 minutes walk 3 minutes Week 7- Run 3 and 1/2 minutes walk 3 minutes Week 8 - Run 4 minutes walk 3 minutes Week 9 - Run 4 and 1/2 minutes walk 3 minutes Week 10 - Run 5 minutes walk 3 minutes Week 11 - run 6 minutes walk 3 minutes Week 12- Run 7 Minutes walk for 3 minutes Week 13 - Run 8 minutes walk 3 or 4 minutes Week 14 - Run 9 Minutes walk 3 or 4 minutes Week 15 - Run 10 minutes walk 3 or 4 minutes I would try that and see if it worked, and if it did I would continue in that manner, adding only one minute per week, unless by the time I got to 10 minutes, I could add two or three minutes a week.

    If I was going to make a c25k program, I would make it more realistic. I think the person who created the program has no idea what it's like to have never run. Nor do they have a clue about how difficult it is to run if a person is very much overweight. I mean, if a person is running with a 50 lb pack on their back, or 100 or 200, they might have a clue. People who are very much overweight are actually getting a whole lot more of a workout than someone who appears to be in shape, and I really admire overweight people who stick with the program, because it is not easy at all. You don't get enough credit for how hard you work and for what you do every time you do some kind of exercise program. You should be treated with admiration and love and I don't think that happens often enough.

    I think I've been doing this program for over 12 weeks. It's kind of difficult to know for sure, because I restarted week 1 a couple of times. And I don't think I joined the forum until I had run for a week, but I'm not sure. It looks like 12 weeks since I joined the forum though. Anyway, here's my review of the c25k program. Not this app, because it is simply following the program. It seems to me that it goes far too fast for someone who is inactive, as far as running goes. I've been working out with weights for 2 years. Now, when I started the weights I was really weak, but now I'm stronger than most women my age. So I wasn't exactly totally inactive when I started the c25k program. At this point the c25k program and I are parting ways. I don't regret using the c25k app, and I don't regret paying for it. It really has helped me. It has helped me not give up during those first few days and weeks, and I've met some people on here who really encouraged me. For that reason, I'm really glad that I had it.

    Week 4 day 2

    Did not fully complete workout today. I ended up walking the remaining workout instead of jogging. I will redo tomorrow with more success. #determined

    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.

    https://www.hdgtee.com/slow-runner-?retailProductCode=C4F3F05326F1B2-5EFA13A9A833-GS0-TC5-BLK&ase_source=recommended I ordered a short sleeve and got the traditional cut as opposed to the ladies cut. I like regular t shirts better...

    I know it will take me some time as well. My goal for a full out 5K run is Thanksgiving Day in the annual "Turkey Trot". That will be the 1 year mark from when I first participated in a 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!
