    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!

    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 :-)

    Week 5 Day 3 conquered!

    I did it! C25K week 5 day 3 is in the books! I ran for 20 minutes straight, which is 12 minutes more than I’ve ever done before. I didn’t hit the 2 mile mark because I only run at 5 mph, but running for 20 minutes without stopping is a huge accomplishment for me. I am by no means a runner, and just a few weeks ago 3 minutes at a time was rough. I will say I much prefer the intervals to the long runs, but it is very satisfying to know that I am capable.

    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.

    Starting running in your 60's

    I started C25K 8 weeks ago, hoping to do the magic 5K run before I turn 62 in January. I wanted to do it while I still can. Today I ran 5K for the first time in 35m10s. I am thrilled. Huge thanks to the C25K app. It never asks you to do more than you can do.

    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.

    Week 5, Day 3 - WTF!!!

    I'm the challenge today. Considering you've been successful until now, I suspect it's a mind over matter issue. Believe me when I tell you, your body can do it regardless of what the voice in your head is chanting.

    New here

    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...

    Why are you running?

    I’m running for my health. I’m 41 and married with 3 children. I have PMDD (look it up if you don’t know in case you have other women in your life with symptoms like mine) and I need to run to help me. My doctor wants me to lose weight before June or she will be putting me on meds for high cholesterol. I don’t want any meds. Im a former runner from my high school days, but it’s been a LONG time and the couch loves me. Im hoping I will not give up this race! My hope is to some day run a 1/2 this year. Why are you running?

    Treadmill for now

    I’ll also be on a treadmill for now. Michigan weather isn’t fit for running here. Too much snow and ice. I’ll be hitting the gym here in a few hours. Treadmill and 30 minute circuit are what I have planned for today.

    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

    Week 5, Day 3 - WTF!!!

    I know exactly what you mean!!! I wasn't ready for a continuous run that long. I actually skipped that day and went right to Wk6 Day1. I figured, no biggie as long as I kept getting out there and trying! Then I repeated Wk6 Days 1 and 2 over and over for a couple of weeks before moving on to Wk6 Day3 (running for 22 minutes). I'm on Wk7 Day3 now! I'm 58 years old and had not run for about 30 years, so I decided to cut myself some slack! I look at this program as a great suggestion of one way to get you to running 5K. It will not be perfect for everyone. Use it as a guideline and modify it if you need to to make it work for you. Don't stop running because you didn't following the program exactly!
