  1. 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!!
  2. Next week I start week 9 for the c210k app!! We can do this!!
  3. They are right!! You can do this!
  4. Great! The 5k I want to do is March 23. Another july4th. :-)
  5. I am 43, just finished the 8 weeks (It took me way longer than 8 weeks) of the program, but am back tracking to week 6 to do the distance instead of time. Over the last 7 months I have lost 42.6 lbs... about 30 more to go. I have MDD and have to exercise to maintain basic mental stability. You can do this!
  6. So true about conquering the mental block. I start week 8 in the morning, January 28th. 28 minutes straight running. I don't know what I want to do after the program. Maybe go back to week 5 and run program for the distance instead of time. I am slow. My 5k is at the end of march...
  7. Normal. Slow down if you have to. Always do a good thorough stretching after. Repeat weeks if you need too. Sometime the mind of Can Do, has to catchup with the body.
  8. I think when you redo a day it just resets that day... I just finished week 5. YOU CAN DO IT. Give yourself permission to slow your pace for the 20 minute jog... And speed up when you feel your confidence go.... I did week 5 day 1and2 twice before my mind was ready to take on day 3 and the 20 minute jog...
  9. Slowing your speed down helps. If you find it hard this week... do what you can and redo the week more than once until you can.
  10. You are not to fat for it. But do start with a week of walking... I am 5ft 4 in. 182lb. Just completed week 5.
  11. Friday I completed week 5!! Can't wait for week 6 and beyond. :-)
  12. Fantastic! I am on week 5. Restarting week 5 tomorrow . I was on vacation for 5 days, came back and did two of the week 5 days and decided to just start the week over, so that day 3 ends on a Friday! I cross train with cycling. Down 35 lbs over 6 months...
  13. I am on week 5 for third time! I will get through it this time. Good luck on the pushups!
  14. I started at 4 for the jog, and 3 for the walk. At week 5 I started over jogging 5, walking 3....and for the longer times of running I do 4.5 to 5. I just finished week 4. Ultimately speed comes later. If you need to slow down to finish the running parts, then slow down. There is no shame in that. Also repeating weeks is totally fine to. :-)
  15. Louis, did you keep with it? Or did you look for a different 10k training program?
  16. How is it going? Did you survive week 5 and 6 now 7?
