I've just completed w4d1 and feeling really proud of myself.

I have just turned 50 and was very unfit. I have asthma and COPD. When I first started the c25k I struggled with week 1 but was determined to do it. I completed w2 but then kept repeating w3 until I felt comfortable and today was the day that I got the confidence to move to w4 and so glad I did.

I have been reading some of the threds on here and you have given me the inspiration I need.

Thanks Anne and Rob.

I managed to complete week 4 :)))

I did find it hard though and week 5 is starting to scare me.

Not sure whether to repeat week 4 yet.

Don't let week 5 scare you. Your brain is screwing with you. Your body is totally ready if you've completed week 4. Your brain is lazy and hates running and will try and defeat you. Ignore it. You are in charge :)

Yay I actually completed w5d3 last week :)

Went to do w6d1 this morning. I thought it would be quite easy after completing the 20 minute run and was surprised that I found it tough. I stuck with it though and completed it :)

Has anybody else found w6d1 tough?

It must be hard running in the heat. I'm not looking forward to that.

I didn't run yesterday because of work (14 shifts) and won't get chance today as in work again.

Will give w6d2 a go tomorrow.

Hope your run goes better today.

Good luck!!!!

Thanks Caz! It was much better today and I think the cooler weather has helped. I hadn't factored in the hot weather when I started this. Only thought about the winter days as a challenge. However, I saw a few people running after dark this evening but I can't see that as a good idea in terms of safety.

 

Hope you've managed to complete W6D2!

Finished the C25K (W8D3) this morning. It's hard to believe that when I first started using this app I struggled with the first few weeks. It took me 11 weeks in total but I wasn't bothered how long it took the main focus for me was to get to the end of the program and moving on to the next level once I felt comfortable.

Good luck to all those who are using the C25K stick with it you can do this :)

Congratulations! I needed to read this :) I completed W5D1 this morning and felt like my legs were lead after halfway through the five minute jogging periods. All I could think of was "there's no way I can do the 20 minutes without stopping". I'm even doubting I can do the 8 minutes in two days from now. I'm finding the mental battles during the workouts quite tough (and boy do those walking intervals go fast!)

 

I do laps around my local park and can't believe how looooong each lap seems when you're jogging, but not a problem when walking!
