I tore my ACL skiing last March and had surgery in June. One year later (and 10-15 pounds heavier), I am finally able to run again. I'm on day 3 and it's going ok, but I am sooo out of shape. I keep reminding myself to take it one day at a time. I know that if I stick with it I will feel great by the end of the summer!
I have been through the C25K before last year when I did the CHOC Walk and this year February when I did the Blacklight Run 5K. I have since fallen hard off the wagon and am looking to regain myself. I started hitting Planet Fitness last week and redownloaded the app. Today (well yesterday Tues 10/7) was my first day using the app and I couldn't believe how hard it was for me to start over. I almost stopped on Day 1!!! I kept pushing cause I just can't quit on Day 1 30 minutes. I made myself do it. Now tomorrow (today) is a different story LOL. I need to keep motivated so I can do more 5Ks. Those are so much fun. Goal is to lose at least 30 lbs. and stay there...heads up, hold'em high cause we're doing this! #JellyBgone! #JellyisTheEnemy
Hi, I just turned 39 on Saturday and am from West Midlands in England. I started and completed C25k in 2009. Felt such a sense of achievement when I completed it. Once complete I started a one hour runner programme but cant for the life of me remember what happened - but suddenly I didn't do it anymore. I go tot the gym and do lots of spinning classes each week - really love it Anyway, as a teacher, I am on my summer break and thought what a great challenge to complete C25K again and this time, keep it up! As I go spinning I already have a level of fitness so decided to start on week 4. Yesterday was day one of week 5. I will do day 2 on Thursday and the dreaded day 3 on Saturday! Last time I did the programme I did it outside. This time I am doing it at the gym on the treadmill, with the intention of getting back onto the roads when I am running for a more prolonged period of time than the shorter intervals. I am looking forward to reading other people's experiences- I find it really motivating
