  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 accomplished. Small gains!
  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 I will be doing w2 for about a month!!
  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 temps go up to 118 in the summer. I will be starting back to work by the end of July and I leave for work at 6:30. I don't know if I will be making myself run at 4:30...in the dark...in the city. It will be TOO HOT when I get home from work. So I may have to find a treadmill somewhere. Thanks for listening. I am looking forward to success.
  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!
