Hi, my name is Beth. Fpr the past few years i have given myself goals of running a 5k and never ever got past week one of the training. I always make the mistake of telling friends and family but I have fwlt like such a faliure. I never take things slowly but I am planning on running a 10k in May 2015. I hope to d complete the cpuch 25k before Christmas so I can start on the 5k to 10k just after Christmas. My plan is to not twll anyone apart from you! Any support, tips etc. Would be much appreciated. Xxx

Wow Beth those are some pretty awesome goals!  Never ever feel like a failure... we have set backs, not failures.  It's a failure when you don't move on from it, and you're moving on!  It sounds like you're a very independent woman but don't forget that even those of us who are self-reliant do need someone to lean on from time to time.  There are some awesome people in this forum who are here to support you and to help you stay motivated and you can come here and vent any frustrations or fears that you may have.  The best thing is that you never have to feel like a failure because you're not going to be judged.  We're all in this together and we've all experienced both successes and set backs.  You're not alone in struggling to keep up with the program.  I did week 1 for three straight weeks... did week 2 for three weeks before finally making the jump to week three.  Don't be afraid to repeat the weeks if you need to but don't give up.  If you set your mind to it, then you can reach those goals.  But be prepared, my friend, that if you should not quite make the goals that you have set now that it's ok and don't give up!  You may find yourself repeating weeks like I have but the entire point of the C25K program is to get us up and moving and that's what's important.  Be proud of yourself for every step that you take toward a healthier you.  Happy Running :)

Beth, I'm struggling too. I'm sleepy, so I'm at a loss for words, but I'll follow this topic. My only thought is to take it slow. Oh man. I can hear hail hitting my house! Gotta love the Midwest. Anyway, ease into it. A runner isn't born overnight.
