Thank you! Just started Week 2 Day 1.
I’m breathing much better and running much stronger. I am grateful I can play my music with another app and they both work together. I got a phone call though and it knocked out the c25k and I had to reboot. Also sometimes it shows me the calories burned and distance ran but not all the time.

Hi, how are you doing with the program now that it’s been a few days? I usually run every other day to give my muscles and ligaments a chance to recover. This helps ease me back into running so that I’m never really sore. Also, running ridiculously slow in the beginning helps me get through the challenging days. Speed will come as you build up your strength and endurance- nothing wrong with taking things slow until that happens. Good luck!

So I thought an update was due. I fought through the demotivation and ran anyway. I took all the advice and repeated Day 1 over and over, allowing myself to walk during most of the day's 8 runs.
And when I did walk through a one-minute jog, I chose to see it not as a failure but as part of the process. Each jog was a success, whether or not I could do many of them.
My first Day 1: Barely survived 3 of 8 runs.
Nearly three weeks later: For the first time I actually jogged for all 8 one-minute runs of the Day 1 session. It was messy. I was out of breath. But I did it.
Happy running to all y'all.
