    New phone

    I got a new phone on week 3 but couldn't find a way to transfer the data. I just clicked each of the runs that I'd done so that it showed the next correct run day. I had all my previous runs recorded on MapMyRun so I wasn't too worried.

    At the end there's a message screen, click on the Facebook icon and it will post to your account. If it's the first time it will ask you to log in. Same thing for Twitter.

    1st run due today

    Forgot to say, don't watch the clock. Hide it on your phone and the treadmill. Rely on the sound prompts on the app. It makes a massive difference mentally.

    1st run due today

    Wow! You're certainly going for it. Although running 5K seems like an impossible task at the moment, you will end up surprising yourself. When I started, I was just like you. I thought I'd never get to day 2, let alone the end! I quickly realised that my body was more able than I gave it credit for and my mind needed to keep quiet and stop thinking that I couldn't do it. I celebrated my first 5K Parkrun (and a significant weight loss) by buying some new running tights! You can repeat days when you need to by just clicking on the day again, the program will check that you want to wipe the previous data, just click yes. Good luck, you'll get there!

    craving to run

    Me too! My husband has even told me to 'just go for a run' when I was particularly grumpy one afternoon, just because he knew I'd come back in a better mood!

    Anyone with a nutribullet?

    We have a cheaper version which doesn't blend hard fruit and veg like apples and carrots. My sister's Nutribullet does everything and I wish we'd bought one but it was over double the price of ours.

    Too Ambitious?

    It's good to have something to aim for! I did my first 5K at the end of week 7. I ended up doing 3 short walks, but it didn't matter as I managed to complete it. 3 weeks later I managed to run all the way and knock over 2 minutes off my time. Signing yourself up for a 5K will mean that you give yourself a target but don't injure yourself by demanding too much of yourself in the process. Good luck!

    Afraid of failure

    It's amazing how persuasive those little beeps are and how much you can do when you set your mind to it. Slow down if you must, but keep plodding. Before you know it, you'll be running 5K!

    Weight loss?

    Look how many calories are in your favourite naughty snacks. Then work out how far you'd need to run to work off the same number of calories. It suddenly doesn't seem so appealing anymore!
  10. Did my first 5K Parkrun 3 weeks ago and managed to complete it in 34:42 with 3 short periods of walking. At the time I was on week 7 of the program. When I graduated I did 30 minutes of running on 4 mornings each week. Fast forward 3 weeks and I did the same Parkrun route in 32:30, no walking and didn't want to collapse in a heap at the end of it! Speed and stamina are obviously building with time. Have started the 10K training during my weekend runs. Determined to run the local 10K race in April.

    First 5K - success!

    Well done!

    Repeat to build speed or keep moving forward?

    I pushed through and I finished about a month ago. I've noticed that, since I finished, I'm gradually getting faster. I think it's because I know I can finish so I've started to up my pace.

    Multiply it by 1.6

    I know I can do this, BUT...

    Reward yourself with some new clothes!

    Screen Lock & Voice Prompts

    Was looking at settings on the 10K one and you can send the screen to sleep. Not sure about the 5K as I've deleted it now to make some space on my phone.
