I just started the C25K last week and finished the first day of week 2 today. I normally do around 50 mins 4 times a week on the elliptical but would love to get into running instead. Every time I've tried, it's been a miserable, awful experience! I've always tried to push too far, too fast, and never had any patience. Everything hurt and I hated it...! This time I decided to do the exact opposite and follow a proper, simple training program for newbies. So far, so good!!! No misery, no tears :-)
I'm walking at 4.0mph and running at 5.5mph which feel about right, not too difficult or taxing.
Good luck to everyone just beginning on their journey like me!
