    Hey There!
    I’m Jose, this is just a little part of my story, i started this program about 6 to 7 weeks ago, you know i felt motivated, I wanted to change my lifestyle. I think one of the stuff that made me doubt were my back problems, and doctors saying I should avoid high impact sports. Nonetheless, I just wanted to give it a try, and must confess I loved it, but during the second week a very annoying pain in left leg started to bug me, I was a little disappointed, but I didn’t want to give up so I started doing some knee conditioning exercises I found online and they were really helpful, there I found that what I needed was more stretching. So now, I’m on the week 5 day 1, I do stretching after every session and I feel much better. Gotta confess that I can feel better already.

    Hey what's going on everybody this is a new Runner here. Most of my life I've been either into football or baseball which or sports that really don't require much running as far as staying in shape. But since college football I've grown to dislike running but the recent circumstances have made me to start wanting to run again. So all of my professional runners who are running marathons and half-marathons I will need your help. Thank you in advance

    Hi all! I’m a year post lumbar fusion surgery, and my doc has cleared me to slowly start running again, so C25K made the most sense! 
    I ran all through high school and through my 20s...Now I’m almost 50 and 30 pounds overweight! Yikes! 
    I put W 1 D 1 in the books yesterday and it felt great just to be heading in the right direction! Thanks in advance for the support and any advice y’all have to offer!

    Yes, that's exactly what you should do, repeat until complete! When I quit smoking jogging was really hard for me, so I did a lot more walking than running. The app has a good plan to get you running, but if its too difficult in the beginning, don't be afraid to slow it down to a pace that makes you comfortable.. with your heart and lungs getting back into the rhythm of things the last thing you want is to rush it!
    I also found that getting a walk in on the other 4 days of the week dramatically improves how fast I can pick up jogging. My biggest hurdle was my breathing, so the extra little activity helped get my lungs used to the experience.
    Best of luck!

    Hello!! I just got done day 2 of this program and thought I’d join the forum. I need someone to hold me accountable to keep it up.
    I run intermittently, but never enough to amount to anything. Meaning I occasionally hop on the treadmill and will run 1 mile MAX, and probably have to stop 3 times in between to walk. It’s sad. I made the mistake of agreeing to run a 5k with a friend after drinking a couple glasses of wine... so now I have to get my life together. Just hoping to find some motivation! I’ve heard excellent reviews about this program for years, so I’m trying it out. Wish me luck and good luck to my fellow beginners!!

    I’m a pastor’s wife, instructional coach of teachers, and 45. I’ve lost 47 pounds and now I’m ready for a race. I don’t want to win I want to finish. I’ll win the second one I enter.

    I am 41 and hate my body.  I won't even let my husband see me!!! So I know I need/ have to do something.  I suffer from depression.  So I got this app because my friend told me to try.  I have been putting it off, I don't know why!! But today I had a patient who totally motivated me!! He gave me his number to text if I start to get down.  I AM DOING THIS!! I want a kick ass body for me!! We have a family cruise in July and I want to feel confident in my suit.  So I started day 1 week 1 tonight and I loved it.  I felt amazing after.  I can't wait for day 2!!!
