    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :-)

    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 rain

    I got to the dreaded first 20 minute run. It was raining, but I told my family I was not missing a day except under the most dire circumstances so I headed out. Best run yet! I think because I spent more time thinking about the rain everything else took care of itself. Feel like I can tackle anything!

    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.

    Hello everyone! My name is Mj, and I’m a 28yo wife, college graduate, and an activities specialist for those with dementia. I’m also on my own weight loss journey, currently down 60lbs since August of 2018. I have documented my journey on YouTube and other social media. I’m here on C25K because I want to be able to do a 5k run in May with my sister. I don’t remember the last time I was able to run, yet alone jog. This is definitely going to be a whole new chapter in my journey to lose weight and to get fit. I look forward to getting to know you all if you so choose to get to know me too. Thank you!

    Welcome. It sounds like you have a great plan. One thing that has helped me ease out of eating too much sugary foods when they seem to have overtaken me, is to eat fruit (fresh or frozen; no sweetener added). It is still sweet, which helps curb the cravings, but it has nutrients and such in it and seems to wean me away from candy and all the other junk.

    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...

    Hello!!! New to Running

    Just started running with this app and I must say I feel pretty good. Now, to keep motivated! I have asthma and was told running would help condition my lungs so I wouldn’t rely on the inhaler as much. I hope they are right!

    I have the same struggle wanting something sweet! I completely cut out everything except black coffee, tea and water as far as something to drink goes... I was a full on Diet Coke junkie lol For snacks I have been eating Kind bars, pistachios and occasionally popcorn that I pop myself on the stove. Every once in a while a little piece of dark chocolate. I use myfitnesspal to track everything. It seriously helps. If you come up with some good ideas, please share!

    goodbye Wendy’s hello c25k

    Hi- i am a 48 year mom- to four teenagers. I have spent the last 30 years with Wendy’s as my favorite place to go for dinner. A friend signed me up for Stronger U in February after a 32 year old friend of ours had a stroke- i have lost 30 pounds and not had fast food in 21 weeks. I run a ski program at loon mountain and spend too much time indoors instead of on the hill a fellow coworker at loon encouraged me to do this with her!

    Week 5 Day 3 conquered!

    I just did Week 6 Day 3 today and it was great. I ran for 27 minutes straight to get the 2.25 miles and I wasn’t completely dying by the end! I always walk afterwards until I hit 3.17 miles and I did it in 45 minutes 25 seconds. 45 minutes is my goal for my first 5K in November, so I’m hopeful. After I finish the program I am planning on starting over outside because I have been doing it only on the treadmill (at a 2 incline) so far. Good luck with your long run!
