I did it. Jeshi ....how did u feel on w6d1. My shins hurt. Only when I'm on the walking intervals though. I took 3 days off which was dumb. Think maybe that has something to do with it. Lungs hurt also. Normally I run in the morning but I was upset with myself for taking so long to start week 6 so I did it tonight after work...I'm on my feet all day so that could be it also. Anyways. I finished the runs without stopping. Happy jogging/running everybody. Goodnight

Azatol .....didn't you post osomewhere that u recently ran a half marathon. How long did it take you to go from the 5k to a half marathon. Probably plenty of time but some point next year I would love to sign up for a half marathon. Obviously after a 10k. But that's just a goal of mine. At least by October 2016 since I started October 17th

Sean, I think Azatol's signature shoes that he started c25k in January,  ran 5K in March, and 10k and half marathon at the end of October this year.

Sean, whenever I take off 3 or 4 days, the run after is really rough. I bet your shin pain was related to that.

 

When I did w6d1, my calves and feet were very sore. The first time I did Week 6 was when I first had serious pain. It was the first time doing c25k that I had doubts. I was afraid I'd have to stop or quit. Thankfully, when I repeated Week 6, it went much. much smoother. 

 

Don't get down on yourself if you experience a bump. Just focus on your breathing in the moment and keeping your core tall. When you repeat, your body will enjoy the ease with improvement.

W6d2 complete. It was definitely easier than the previous run. Thursday is another long run. I believe 22 minutes. Yay. Looking forward to it. May wait till Friday though. Give my shins some rest. I did get my mile down under 10 minutes today. So proud of myself there. Considering I started at about 15. Want to get it down to around 7. Obviously not by the end of the program but in the future. Jeshi. Are u still doing every other day. Or something different. I'm considering running and doing 2 days off between runs now. Because they are all over 20 minutes now. Input appreciated. Thanks for the encouragement everyone

Sean. If you need extra time between runs, you ran too hard. Don;t worry about your pace now friend. This course is all about endurance. Speed will come after completion. When i finished the courser I was running 11.5 minute miles. That's when things started to change. Then I started doing strides and hill sprints and Fartleking and my speed picked up. Slow it down. Most runs should be easy runs. As I keep saying , this course is about learning 30 minutes of running endurance. it;s the base to build running off of. You acheive that goal and you've won.

 

Summary: Slow it down, go every other day, kick butt! (I promise) a slower pace will mean a quicker recovery)

Not allowed to link the best site for that because he sells his coaching services in the sidebar but google "Strengthrunning strides" then same thing for hill sprints,

 

Fartlek is a free form type of speed workout where you vary your speed between a jog (Or even walk) light run, medium run, hard run and base it on non specific distances. For example... I'm going to run to that light post, then jog easy to the next one, then walk to the next, then run at full speed to the next.

 

None of these should be done will doing the C25K program. These are for later when you start working on your racing skills.

Gotcha.

Since I think what grabs me most is the constant callenge...and although i might do the 10 k app i dont think i'll take it further at this point... would rather find ways to challenge myself on the more doable distances

I wasn't worried about my pace. I was jogging at a pace that was comfortable for me. And it's not that I feel I need more time right now. Just figured that it would be smart. Guess I'll go to every other day still

Sean it's your choice. If you have pain, rest. If you're sore, run!! But if you have pain that subsides after an extra day, you need to dial it down some :)

LOL I said that exact same thing 11 months ago. Then it was "ok just a 10k". Then it was "Wait, why am I running a half marathon?". Now I just came to terms with the fact that I have an addiction so I just pre planned on the KDF Marathon in Spring 2017. No need to deny it LOL
