  1. Hey everyone, Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. I was a runner about 5 years ago but I stopped. Getting started again because I signed my daughter up for Girls on the Run, and she needs a running partner for the end season 5K. Finished Week 1 Day 2 today.
  2. Hello! I'm a middle-aged mom returning to running after taking a few years off. I completed C25K several years ago, then continued training and ran a few 5ks, a 5 mile race, and two half-marathons. Then I got lazy and depressed and I stopped running. I gained a lot of weight. I was so stressed out about my job, I started grinding my teeth in my sleep and I was having SVT episodes (rapid heartbeat). My doctor said that I had to reduce stress. In July of this year, I decided that I had enough and started C25K again. I also started eating low carb again. I've completed C25K, and I am working
  3. Hi everyone! I'd like to post my experience on being an absolute beginner to running and getting to the 10k mark. I found it very difficult in the beginning, and wanted to share some things I've learned and some tips that will hopefully help others. I started off doing the Zenlabs C25K and moved straight up to their 10K app. My fitness level was average, and all my running was done on a treadmill. It took 12 weeks and I'm 47 yrs. old. When I first started out it was hard. I mean, OMG I really wanted to get each running session over with. I hated it, complained to myself all the
  4. Hey guys my name is Lynn I am 19 and 300lbs, I am new to this today was the 2nd day and my legs felt like lead! I was sure at some points I wasn't even jogging but I was a couple times I walked. I took two 10 minute breaks but I finished it. I ways wanted to run and finally decided to do it even if it is hard!
  5. Hello I’m Wyni and new to jogging- have done racewalking in the past but just starting to try to get fit again in my 50’s, My day one went well but today on day 2 the minute I started to jog I felt very sore and tight inner thigh muscles. I have never had this before. I paused to stretch and warm up more but could not properly jog during the exercise. Any advice would be very wrkcome thanks Wyni
  6. Hi Everyone Just started today. Not too bad as the weather is nice at the moment in the UK but I can see a 6.30am start in October being more of a challenge. Despite being generally fit I've never felt particularly comfortable running. Sore hips and back and I've never quite found the right sports bra. However, I'm determined to at least try it for a month not least because I need to lose my belly gut that is putting me in the right risk category for diabetes and heart disease!!! Female, 47yrs, 72Kg
  7. Hello there! I want to run a 5K before I turn 50 late next year. I have not run since I left the Army in 1991. Goal is to run a 5K on Thanksgiving for charity. Anyone else doing the same?
  8. Hello! i am very excited about this app and training! I have successfully completed day 2 of week 1! I am 54 yrs young and needing to loose a good 25-30 Lbs. I feel certain I will be looking for advise and support as I continue! Look forward to getting to know some of you here!
  9. My name is Kayla. I am 24, totally blind, and a college freshman. I want to get physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy. Could use some support. Very scared. I don't want to fail. I want to try the program on the elliptical. I hope that will work. Thank you for listening to me.
  10. Second run ever... for someone who is overweight and a smoker I think I'm doing quite well...! Felt I was going to pass out at some point but I survived, pushed through, and every time I finish my workout I feel great... so yeah... guess that's about it for now... although my calves hurt from time to time, hope that's normal! Any thoughts?
  11. Next week I will be scheduling gallbladder surgery. I am motivated to start now, but not sure if it would be worse to stop in middle for recovery or wait until after surgery, healing, and risk losing the motivation? Any advice?
  12. I just started yesterday. Don't exercise other than walking a mile or two a few times a week. Started with my 10 yr old dog. We both loved it. So much I repeated it after work again. He's beat this morning so I'm going solo. It'd great to have all this info at hand. Peace, Jeff

  14. Ciao! I'm an American who sold everything to travel the world, and after a year of restaurants around the globe, I felt it was time to start running. That and I listened to a podcast episode of On Being with Krista Tippet that talked all about runners and running and how they came to love running, and what they get out of it. It was really interesting. They spoke of how anything can be accomplished if taken in small increments, which is how I came to look up "best running apps for people who hate to run" or something like that. My timing could be better - it's really mountainous up
  15. As a young (ish) dad I'm doing this to ensure I have the energy to run around the parks and beaches with my little ones when they get older :-) Looking for people to share the long hard journey with! Good luck everyone.
  16. Hi, inspired by an online friend I decided to start C25K a few weeks ago. I haven't done much exercise for years apart from walking, I used to run as a kid and in my early 20's but have not done so for many years. After the first day when I got home I had to lie down for half an hour , then sit in my dressing gown for over an hour before I could even face showering. I've had a few aches and pains but nothing that doesn't get better on my inbetween days. Today I completed Week 4 Day 2 and my recovery time was about 5 minutes. I am simply amazed at how good this program is! :-)
  17. I've never run before and I just finished Week 1 Day 1! I am sore, but I feel amazing. I have never felt more positive that I could accomplish something like this than I do now! This app is so great and I seriously love it. I am so excited for the coming days. I am ninja running at night so my family stays out of it. Tips on how to cool down or running techniques?
  18. Hello all, I just did my first day with the C25K app, and i was astounded I got through it. (woo hoo!) When I finished the workout I noticed that I actually erred and did the week 1/day 3 workout. Now I don't know what to do.... Should I keep doing this one for two more workouts? Do I just start over? Do I continue and start week 2? I have a goal to run my first 5k on May 8. I've NEVER run before (I still don't - it's more like a 'rolling jog'). I am 48 years old, have asthma, as well as other medical history to contend with. I am tired of being this roley-poley old woman).
  19. I've been overweight since leaving high school. I "lie" to myself and have little to no support at home, and am not even accountable to myself. I want to be healthy. I need to feel better. I'm a wife, mother, and full time student. One of my children has 'Special Needs'. I'm hoping I can get some type of push here, some tough love. No BS so that I can get underway.

  21. Hello, just started today with W1D1. Have not run in years but felt it time to give it a try and work up to that. Have been walking (lightly) 3-4 miles on average daily for the past few months.
  22. Hello. I didn't see this thread yet and I'm looking for a couple of accountability partners. I was 54 in September 2015. I'm down 20 pounds with 40 more as my 2016 goal! Ran track in high school.
  23. Hiya everyone! I'm 18 (Senior year!) and have a little too much extra "lovin'". Quick back story: I use to be obsessed with running when I was a Freshman. I actually would run almost every day Freshman year; on a normal day I'd run atleast 3 miles and on crumby days I'd push myself to 5.5 miles. I was a fitness junky. I always had to be doing something active. I played soccer, tennis, volleyball, basketball, and ran both cross country & track. Last school year (Junior year) I went from weighing 128 lbs. to weighing 159.6 lbs. within barely 2 months. I got depressed and ev
