  1. Today i completed 30mins jogging. The pace is still a bit slow. I could do 4kms in 30 mins. But still very much happy coz I couldnt even run 4 mins at start of the program. With balanced diet I also reaped sweet benefits of weight loss. Took me almost 12-14 weeks to reach 30mins. Although there have been some delays due to injury but I did not quit and hence completed it. Since my stamina was too less, alternate day jogging was not sufficient and so I used to jog daily(except Sunday) upto first 5 weeks. Also repeated the week wherever needed. Week 5 is toughest but remember not to quit and repeat if necessary. Every week seemed tough and hard to finish. But the thumb rule was not to quit and repeat until you finish a target week. Dont forget pre and post stretches at it helps prevent injury and helps in recovering. Take a break whenever legs are sore or in deep pain. Best thing about the app is its breakdown to achieve the target. Must say its very skillfully developed. Thanks C25K :-)

    Completed 30 mins. Thanks C25K

    Thats good. Week 5 is crucial. Last day would seem very tough but its possible when you do it and its a good confidence booster. The key is not to take breaks in the program. If any day cannot be done, it should be repeated. I had many previous attempts where i stopped the program. This time i was determined not to skip and hence completed it. Now am working on completing 5k in 40 mins and then in 30 mins before switching over to a bigger plan. Reducing 35lbs over 6 months is awesome. How much do you cycle and at what speed ? I also do cross train with cycling for about 25kms with avg speed of 18-20kmph.
