    Treadmill for now

    Hello! Just getting going with the app. Right now the weather here isn't fit for running so I am on the treadmill. I purposely restarted week one. Trying to make sure I am adapted before I move to the next week. This is all very new to me but I am determined to succeed!

    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.

To complete at least thee 5k walks or runs for charities I support 4). To meditate and pray daily, along with becoming more involved in my church and scripture readings 5). To just be happy and to live my life to the fullest.

    Finished c25k 3 weeks ago.

    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!!

    Completed 30 mins. Thanks C25K

    Today i completed 30mins jogging. The pace is still a bit slow. I could do 4kms in 30 mins. But still very much happy coz I couldnt even run 4 mins at start of the program. With balanced diet I also reaped sweet benefits of weight loss. Took me almost 12-14 weeks to reach 30mins. Although there have been some delays due to injury but I did not quit and hence completed it. Since my stamina was too less, alternate day jogging was not sufficient and so I used to jog daily(except Sunday) upto first 5 weeks. Also repeated the week wherever needed. Week 5 is toughest but remember not to quit and repeat if necessary. Every week seemed tough and hard to finish. But the thumb rule was not to quit and repeat until you finish a target week. Dont forget pre and post stretches at it helps prevent injury and helps in recovering. Take a break whenever legs are sore or in deep pain. Best thing about the app is its breakdown to achieve the target. Must say its very skillfully developed. Thanks C25K :-)

    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.

    C25K on my elliptical

    Week 1 day 2 Yesterday I did day 2 of week 1 on my elliptical. First I didn't want to do it because I'm not a very sportive person but I am glad that I did it. I want to finish this program on my elliptical. Maybe when I lose some weight and my body is in better shape I will going to like sport but for now it's still difficult. I feel like I have no energy. But I will finish it. And I'm trying to eat as healthy as possible. Well tomorrow I will do day 3. Kamille.

    Completed the program!!! It works.

    It took me a bit longer than the actual plan most likely since I am a former smoker. Tonight I completed 3.2 miles and I have lost 25lbs in the process.

    Training for 10K

    Just completed Week 10 day 1. I move fairly slowly but am amazed that combining the Running with the walking and warm-ups, I did 5 miles. Whoever thought that I could do 5 miles.

    Foods to eat before a run

    If you are on a weight loss goal then I suggest what I did . I used to have only 2-3 pcs of almonds 1 walnut 1 Date every time before a run. There were days i didnt have even that ie when I was intermittent fasting. Its difficult in the start but actually the stamina or endurance is not troubled after a couple of weeks and you get used to it. I have realized that 30 to 35 mins runs for a 5K doesnt require you to be on a full stomach . Yes i do have atleast 2 glasses of water half hour before a run which helps me stay hydrated and carry a very small bottle in my pocket incase i need it but requirement is only after completion of a run.

    I was able to do the first day work out even though it was hard. But I did repeat week one before moving to week 2. So I would recommend attempting to do the workout and if you need to back off some of the runs to a brisk walk and repeat the week until you have those 8 runs down. One thing I have found is that the first 2 runs and the last one are the hardest. The ones in between are the easiest because my body is all warmed up. This will increase your stamina. I have been a walker for exercise the past couple of years so this is quite challenging. I just did my week 2 day 1 and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.

    Here (again) after a health scare

    Silver Pie That's what I'm hoping too. She actually took me off of the diuretic because I was so dizzy I had to leave work one day. I am down about 10 lbs already (helped by drastic water loss but I'll still take it) and I can feel improvements in my flexibility and my stamina. I will argue my case for getting off the pills again at the 25lbs lost mark.

    13.1 Half Marathon App

    I think they recommend that you can start about that week since you've already run a lot. If you do that week and it's too easy, then just skip forward again. If it's a little bit hard then you could just go back a week.

    Hello, Just checking out the forum. I have always loved going to the gym and working out but the last year or so has been rough... anyway I'm just starting to get back into working out from home now focusing a lot on pushups and core exercises and hope to get back into running if this Wisconsin winter ever ends. I also started to cut soda out of my diet and that is going ok. Not perfect, but much better than how it used to be. Now I need to find a cure for my sweet tooth...

    Training for 5k

    I've never been a runner, but recently it occurred to me that if I can walk three or four miles I could probably learn to run it. So I decided to shoot for a 5K run that is in my local area near the end of April. I may become a runner yet.

    Training for 5k

    I’m so excited for you! I remember the first time (5 years ago) I learned that I could run. It was amazing to me! Congratulations on giving it a try! I am also planning to run in a 5k at the end of April. This will be my 5th time doing this race but I wouldn’t really consider myself a runner. I use the race as motivation to get back outside and do some walk/jog laps. So, here I am again trying to jumpstart myself to get back out there. This is my first time using the c25k program. I just started this week so I’m ready today for w1d2. It’s a cold 23 outside right now. Time to layer up!

    Week 5, Day 3 - WTF!!!

    Sounds like a great idea! Seems odd to me that run6.1 is so much easier than 5.3. Just substituting 6.2 for 5.3 looks good too

    Proper running technique!

    "you want to make sure your legs are in such a position that your foot lands directly over your toes." What the heck does that mean?
