  1. Hi. I'm vegetarian. 'Have been for over 30 years. I am on week 4, day 1. I try to be sure to incorporate plenty of nuts in my diet, mostly almonds and walnuts. I have to try not to over do though so I don't get too much fat and calories. If you do dairy, Greek yogurt is a good source of protein. Nonfat or lowfat milk hydrates while providing protein as well. Best of luck to you.
  2. There is nothing wrong with repeating days. It sure beats giving up! Every day you get out and try your best makes you stronger and gets you closer to your goal.

    hip pain

    Don't give up. Read my post on this topic. I was having pain in just one hip too. I was very discouraged but I'm back on track now. Good luck.

    hip pain

    I am posting this hoping that it helps someone with a similar problem. I began having hip pain on week 3 in only one side, my right. By day 3, week 3 it was too painful to continue. I was very disappointed with the setback. I did some reading online. I know, not all information found there is accurate but I read something that made sense. It could be that I am not balanced and my hip muscles are not strong enough to support my joint during the repeated impact as I increase my running time. Even after a two week break the pain returned as soon as I tried to jog again. I started going to the gym 3 to 4 times a week working out on the elliptical machines to strengthen my muscles without impact. After 6 weeks of that I am feeling much stronger overall and was able to start jogging again. My hip is still a little "twingy sometimes". It may be something I always have to be mindful of but building strength in my entire body has helped that hip quite a bit. I have resumed the C25k program on week 4, day 1 and did so with no problems. I may make my goal of a September 5K after all.
