  1. I've always just believed you need to complete 3 runs in a week, allowing for a rest day between each run. I tend to run Tues/Thurs/Sat myself, but really it's whatever works for you. As for pace, again that's up to you. You'll get faster as you go on, I would advise you to run comfortably, once you're running for 30 minutes at a time, then you can work towards speed.
  2. I've been doing C25k, got up to w7d2 without any breaks or repeats. Then I got quite sick, and didn't run for about 6 days. I went for two runs, with a rest day between like usual, found it a bit harder after almost a week off. Then both my kids got sick too, I have a 1 year old and a 3 year old. It's been a week without solid sleep, I've been up with them at least every two hours every night and I have been absolutely exhausted. I haven't run in a week now, and I'm really missing it. Anyway, I got my first full night sleep in two weeks last night, and I'm keen to get back on the bandwago
  3. I cannot believe it. Can't fathom how I went from staggering through a 60 second jog just a few weeks ago to running 20 minutes straight. I still felt pretty good by the end of it too! Was hot and sweaty, but still breathing fine, and no terrible fatigue in my legs. I think the worst thing was how tight my shoulders and neck were by the end of it! I am so very proud of myself and so excited to meet the challenges ahead. Feel free to go ahead and call me a runner!
  4. Hi everyone. I'm Nikki, 28 and from New Zealand. I began C25K a few months ago, wanting to commit to a lifestyle change after having two children. My little ones are 1 and 3 now, and I've been completely sedentary since my first pregnancy. When I first began, I hadnt exercised in years, since preparing for my wedding in 2012, after which I fell pregnant. That first week was killer, I pushed really hard to get through each of the 8 runs, and I really felt it the next day. Week 2 seemed slightly easier cardiovascularly, although I found myself in more and more pain throughout the week
