    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.

    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.

    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!

    Hello!

    Hello everyone! I made the decision to live a healthier life one month ago. I now have my diet under control and want to start exercising. I have always wanted to do a 5K so I thought this would be a great way to do both. Looking forward to doing this with all of you!

    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.

    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

    Hi all you runners! I went to my doctor on Wednesday thinking everything was fine, after a 40 min walk even and was told: 1. I had high blood pressure. 2. It wasn't a fluke 3. I now have to take meds for it. 4. I'd better loose a lot of weight. That set me back a bit. The last time I was consistently active was 5 years ago when I was doing 5k training. So here I am again, this time I am doing the 10k training because I figured I'd better keep training until...well actually I'd better not ever stop training. I am glad to be able to be here.

    Week 3 Day 3 ugh

    I finished W3D1 yesterday and surprised myself. I didn't think I could run for 3 minutes straight, but I did it. Feeling confident.

    Hiker that’s new to running!

    Hi there! I am an avid hiker/backpacker who is looking for an outdoor workout I can do year-round to strengthen my knees and ankles and keep me conditioned for summertime hiking goals. I have never run before but am looking forward to the challenge of it. I do worry about building endurance but I know that comes with time. Would love any tips or encouragement others have! I am from Upstate NY so I’ve chosen to begin my running journey in the snowy winter. We’ll see how it goes.

    From what I've studied, it would probably be good to do push-ups, squats, and sit-ups on days you don't run. And you should definitely take at least one day a week off for your body to recuperate. It is also recommended to walk on the days you don't run. Best of luck to you. Sounds like you've got great goals!
