  1. I only have one more run until I graduate from C25K. Gonna start the 10k app next week and I'm very apprehensive. I have to say, however, that coming across this thread is helping me a lot. Sometimes I feel like quitting as well but having had the experience of having to do that and then starting over is enough to make me push through. Look at all the progresses you've made. You don't want to start over and face week 1 all over again. The only possible way is forward. I think you're doing awesome! Thank you so much for sharing how you're doing and for making me see the 10k app is not impos
  2. I am also worried about week 9. I'm finishing week 8 this week and I feel like it's too much of a big jump. Did you finish week 9?
  3. During the run? I don't drink anything during my run. I usually run at night so I drink throughout the day and stop eating and drinking 3 hours prior to the run so I'm sure I am not tired during my run and also that all the bathroom breaks are pretty much dunzo by the time I step out. So cool that you're taking the c210k challenge! I am also joining in. Already purchased the app. I'm slightly worried though because from week 8 to week 9 it feels like such a massive jump! Do you feel confident about it? I need to read people's reviews Today I'm supposed to run week 8 day 2 but I'm so
  4. Sorry for double post in the same post. Can't get this app to work well on my phone
  5. Today I finished week 6 day 3 and I haven't had any more leg pain problems. I have to say, even though this is the 2nd time I attempt C25K and the second time running week 6, I fell for the post week 5 overconfidence bliss. I knew week 6 would be hard and still I found myself being slapped in the face. Day 1 was horrible. Day 2 was more tolerable, but still hard, and day 3 was just hard and boring. I had spotify on shuffle and all the songs it played were those songs I'm really tired of already. So I found myself aware of every single second and actually stating internally how bored I was. I
  6. Congratulations on finishing week 5! That's such an accomplishment! You should be very proud! I just finished week 5 day 1. Even though I've previously completed the program up to week 7 day 3 I'm still dreading the week 5 day 3 so it's really nice to come here and read all these posts of people who have recently jumped the hurdle! Thanks for leaving feedback and happy running to you!
  7. No it wasn't a burning pain and my feet didn't go numb. It was a sharp pain but it's entirely gone now finished week 4
  8. Today I completed w4d2 with minimal pain. Don't know if it's a coincidence or not but I've added bananas to my diet.
  9. Thanks for dropping me a message Bodie. Because the pain disappears an hour or so after I finish running I have no idea if my runs are going to be bad or not unless I go and try it out. So I got brave and tried to run today. I ditched my new kayanos and grabbed my old sneakers to see if it would make a difference. I managed to finish the whole thing, but I still had to push through the pain. However, it wasn't as bad as the other times. It was bad, but not as excruciating to the point I had to stop because my legs were giving out. When I stop running the sharp pain and the throbbing gets wo
  10. Hi everyone. A few months ago I tried C25K and made it to week 7 with no problem. Unfortunately because I was finishing my master's I had no time to spare and ended up not finishing the program. I decided to try it again now that all of that is over. I'm sad to say I am stuck on week 4. I manage successfully to run the 3 minutes, the 5 minutes and, at a lot of cost, the second 3 minutes. I don't feel out of breath per se. I feel like I could finish but my legs hurt a lot by the time I finish the second 3 minutes. My calves feel incredibly hard and painful all the way down to my ankles.
