Another newbie saying hello

Recommended Posts

Morning all, 

 

I just recently decided to use the C25k app as part of my goals for 2017. I've been getting into running for a few months now and after battles with shin splints, lack of motivation, and just general issues I think I'm finally at a place where I can now move forward. As it stands I've done a few virtual 5k's but definitely didn't do them in a manner that I'm comfortable with as it was mostly walking with periods of jogging. So I'm looking at bettering that as well as bettering my time. 

 

Also, looking for anyone to chat with and maybe help hold me accountable  :P. Excited to get to know everyone and for 2017 running goals to be accomplished!

Hi,

 

I did the couch to 5k and am now able to keep going with the couch210k (yes I must be mad)

 

I found that the app was great to keep me motivated and on the first few weeks she kept me going (the disembodied voice that tells you when to run etc)

 

The later runs you will need music as you will get bored and she is not there for you as much

 

As someone who has graduated from the app and as someone who suffers seizures that is a huge milestone

 

If you are not feeling it do not push to get the run done, try to run for fun else you will find no app can help you to keep going

 

Here if you need any help etc

 

Good luck and just getting off the couch is a good thing
