    That's awesome. I remember that being my dreaded day lat time I first did the programme. Seemed scary. After two years off not running I'm starting again on Monday

    The day after when it went back to intervals I was happy and couldn’t understand how people said the long runs were better, but now that I am on week 8 I agree!  Long runs are satisfying.  I also crave running—on my off days I get cranky that I can’t run, lol.  Good luck on Monday!

  2. I just did Week 6 Day 3 today and it was great.  I ran for 27 minutes straight to get the 2.25 miles and I wasn’t completely dying by the end!  I always walk afterwards  until I hit 3.17 miles and I did it in 45 minutes 25 seconds.  45 minutes is my goal for my first 5K in November, so I’m hopeful.  After I finish the program I am planning on starting over outside because I have been doing it only on the treadmill (at a 2 incline) so far.  Good luck with your long run!

  3. I did it!  C25K week 5 day 3 is in the books!  I ran for 20 minutes straight, which is 12 minutes more than I’ve ever done before.  I didn’t hit the 2 mile mark because I only run at 5 mph, but running for 20 minutes without stopping is a huge accomplishment for me.  I am by no means a runner, and just a few weeks ago 3 minutes at a time was rough.  I will say I much prefer the intervals to the long runs, but it is very satisfying to know that I am capable.
