    soculese got a reaction from TheRoseWithin~Shannon in If you can't complete a week's workouts...   
    Personally - I re-did the days I had trouble with. I'd play different music and take a different route. Don't stop though. The important part of all of this is that you are going out and doing something with a set goal. Others may echo my sentiments here....week 5 day 3 will look scary but I actually feel that the first 3 weeks are the toughest especially if you are new to doing this. At the end of week 1 I wasn't sure I was going to make it through. May last time out, I ran a 5K distance. You can do it.

    Chinebo DONT focus on the time it takes to compete an interval. Just keep moving. I thought week three was gonna kill me too but I'm proud to say I ran a 5k distance tonight. It's the gains you make in week 3,4,5 that will pay dividends in week 7,8. I'm the laziest person I know when it comes to exercise so if I can do this....you can too!

    Settled in on a jawbone up24. Satisfied so far. It's comfortable and doesn't get in the way and seems to just work. I've played around with the IFTTT app and have a few custom reminders and actions paired up. Pretty interesting stuff.

    soculese got a reaction from Missy in C25K: W3D3 - Three Weeks Already! It Goes So Fast!   
    Keep at it regardless of what you think others may think about you. I finished week 6 day 3 last night. Ponder this, people looking at you from inside their homes are doing just that. Looking, not doing. Stay the course, don't think about what others think - think about how much you are doing for yourself.

    soculese got a reaction from Timb113 in W5D3 looked like Goliath but I turned out to be David!   
    w5d3 has been staring me down for a while looking like a 20 foot tall frightening beast. I repeated w5d1 and d2 twice to build endurance. Tonight I went for it. I decided that the best way to slay the beast was to establish a conservative pace that maybe didn't get me two miles in distance but got me thru twenty minutes in time. End result, I did 1.8 miles in 20 minutes and slated Goliath on the clock. Didn't stop once in the 20 minutes and according to my meter kept a pretty consistent pace. My legs aren't shot. I feel pretty good physically tonight, mentally I feel very good about myself. I'm quickly going from a "never ran" to an "I can do this".
     
    I'm staring week six in the eyes and for the first time since starting I don't feel intimidated.
