  1. Yay!!! Today I went out for week 3 day 12 (at least! LOL) I was able to run all the parts without breaking up the runs. I forgot that I had a top with a pocket which is able to hold my phone, so I never looked at the time. I did it! My brain didn't tell me that I was unable to complete 3 minutes. I will keep doing week 3 until it is easy, before I move on to week 4....cuz I am overwhelmed at the thought of week 4!
  2. So, I am on week 3 day 11, I think. I am 57 y.o. female and about 15 lb. overweight. I tried c25k last summer, but plantar faacitis, bronchitis, and tendonitis sidelined me. I started again in April. Oh, yeah, I live in Phoenix so it is HOT. I am stuck on week 3. I can get all the running in, but the second set of 3 min. I need to break up and I started running slower when it got into the 90s. WELL, today I went out, I did have to break up the last 3 min., but I added in more running. Fastest time and distance in many weeks. Slow going.....but it is going. I am feeling accomplish
  3. I received it also. delete it. could be a virus.
  4. I am redoing week 2, because I had problems finishing the 1.5 min running parts. Well, surprise suprise! This week, my redo week, I can actually do the runs!!! Even this morning....at 5:45 and 95 degrees with humidity alread.....I figured I would take it easy and walk most of it. Well, I did all the running parts. I am stunned. But the jump to 3 min. per run for week 3 still seems daunting. Sadly, I start back to school next week and I am up at 5am. I won't run at 4:30am....seems unsafe to me. So that leaves me with afternoons and evenings. It will be so hot. Easily 105. I think
  5. So, I finished week 1. I did the program on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. I had a day off in between as it recommends. My question is do I start week 2 on Saturday or on Sunday? If I start on Saturday, it seems like the program is an every other day workout. It says it is a 3 times/week program. Advice??
  6. Hi there! I am 56 years old and have finished W1D2. Very new to this. But surprisingly I am able to do it! I have never been a runner so maybe this will change. My motivation is two-fold....I need to hold off Type 2 diabetes, which all of my doctors have said it is not if I become diabetic, but when. I also want to look good for a family wedding in October. I am less than 20 pounds overweight, so this should really help. My biggest problem I see is going to be finding the time to run. I am a teacher and I can run now in at 6am. In Phoenix, Arizona that is important since our te
  7. Ellen, what is the name of the book you are using that has the red/yellow/green list? I just finished W1D2. I need to find a good low Gl plan. thanks!
