    Week 5 Day 3 conquered!

    That's awesome. I remember that being my dreaded day lat time I first did the programme. Seemed scary. After two years off not running I'm starting again on Monday

    I agree with @Anne lang. What if you don't Run the whole thing @Wendell. Does it matter? You would probably find you would run longer in a race than on your own. Your still doing a lot better than 90% of the population that's not doing it or anything at all. Go for it

    craving to run

    Going good thanks. W2d2 today after a horrid week last week. I'm down to a couple of cups of tea and drinking coffee. Not sute if it's the iron levels increasing because I've reduced tannins or if it's the cafine. What every it is, I like it. Lol. I feel like running again

    Hi

    Welcome and good luck. When I originally did the c25k I stopped and actually just walked for the first week I was that unfit. Then I did the week one for two weeks and three first week was really shallow steps. But i got there. Just take it at your pace and shorten your steps, head up and shoulders back (helps with the breathing or in my case. The gasping lol)

    I do indeed. I forgot about the tannin in the tea. Also milk does it to. I forgot all about that.

    Going ok Kellyann. Been sick and my iron level is low again so really lacking energy. Working on feeling better. So all on week 3
  10. Because I missed last week (school camp) I tried to repeat a day of my last run but it came up and said do I want to reset all my data. I was worried it was going to wipe all my work so I went to the week I was meant to do. And survived to my surprise. But how do you repeat a day without losing your work. Thanks
  11. That is awesome. Well done

    Week 5 - ok nerves hitting

    It's easier than you think. Last time I did c25k (3 years ago before injury. Non running related) I was so scared to do week 5 I did it and was like, that was easier than I thought. It's all mind games. We can do it

    I'm the same. Just want my Legs to move. I'm due to start week three today but just want to run. Who would of thought. I've gone from being a blob and maybe doing under 5000 steps a day to wanting to run in such a short time. Who would of guessed? Not me that's for sure

    I think I missed something

    Hi Anne. The basic is to run every second day, so three times a week. When I first did the c25k. I biked in between runs and had a day off. So essentially a week is three days of half an hour. Some do it quicker than that. But from a couch potato is a good start

    I'm over weight mum of three 15,14 and 11. I've completed the c25k before but had a work injury stop me from continuing. That was the years ago and the weight had piled on since then. I've just completed w2d1 today. I got a fitbit about a month ago and it's been the encouragement that I needed . I love it. I'm not using scales at all as for me it's about the way I feel. And I do feel like I've got energy now and my resting heart beat had dropped 9 points. So looking good I'd say.

    Repeating a day?

    So they're is no way of keeping all your data if you repeat?

    I find the fitbit very interesting. Particularly the sleep and heart rate. And steps of course

    First Day!

    Fantastic. You have the determinate to get there.
  23. You can do this. The first time I did it I think it was week three I sat on for about three weeks as I was scared of week 4. But in the end it was easier than my mind had worked out it to be. I completed w2d1 today too. We can do this
