  1. Hi i just started running like 2months. just recently started this c25k. today just finished my week 2 day 1. However, i realized that everytime after a run my right side hip is in pain..only right though causes me to limp when i walk. seems to be more painful when i climb up stairs compare to when i go downstairs. what seems to be causing this? the pain is mostly on the outer side of the right hip. i run 3 to 4 times a week. currently every run like 3km only.
  2. I have never been fit in my entire life, and I'm ready to make the change to a healthier lifestyle. I'm getting married next June and want to look and feel the best I ever have. I hope I can do this..
  3. Hello all. I'm new to the C25K challenge. I had wanted to do it previously but it wasn't a free app yet. I am excited to see what this program can do for me. I'm a 26 year old mom of three young boys. I also suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). I use the term suffer because weight is nothing but a struggle due to insulin resistance and very poor metabolism that comes with the disease. Most women with PCOS aren't able to conceive, and I have been blessed enough to have had three beautiful children. However, I now have baby weight that will take twice the effort of the average woman
  4. Hi! I live in Albuquerque, NM and have found a love for running. I'm 39 (close to 40!) and a single mom. I've always "wanted" to run but never really put forth any effort, except when I was in high school and I didn't really try. Since starting the c25k app I have found that you CAN do things you set your mind to! I started Weight Watchers in February and started really working out on the elliptical. I then gave the treadmill a try and a friend introduced me to the app. The first week I thought i was going to die! Between week 5 and 6 I had to take a two week rest due to my left knee. I just r
  5. So I have just completed w1d1. When I say completed I don't mean that I actually ran the whole time I was meant to: but I did make it to the end of the cool down without keeling over so that's a win in my book! A bit of background, I'm a nearly 33yo Aussie whose previous exercise history is basically none existent. I'd go for a walk every now and then and feel good about myself for a bit until I would realise my clothes were getting a bit tight so I'd go walking... And then buy the next size up. All that is about to change. I am seriously committed this time, not because I want to lose wei
  6. So today was supposed to Week 2/Day 1. But I didn't sleep well Sunday night: My right ankle, knee, and hip all hurt. This was the leg I was concerned about when I started C25K. I was ready to give up. But I decided to take another rest day today and see how I did. I managed to get 10,000 steps yesterday and am on track to do that again today . . . and I'm feeling MUCH better. So, after reading over the advice I was given about my first week, I'm going to give it another go tomorrow. I am planning to repeat week #1 and run at the slower speed as I talked about on Sunday's post and see ho
  7. I started my journey at 261.5 pounds. I am finally ready to change. I have lost nearly 15 pounds with Weight Watchers and have only been walking for exercise. I have a friend who is an avid runner, having completed a number of half marathons and currently training for her first full marathon. Though I am intrigued by her, I've always said I couldn't do it (while she stands there and tells me I could!!). I can't say what the turning point was . . . . reading a lot of WW blogs and success stories I guess. Many had become runners and most said "I never thought I could". The more I read
