    I would love to join this group for motivation and support! I am on W3D1, and I am going to have to do it in the snow with my yaktrax on! I will report back on how it goes. :) I am joining a local running group later this month, so that should be really helpful.

    I think anyone who is within a 2-3 weeks is completely perfect for this group. We are all working at different paces and have different setbacks, so welcome.

    fwiw the Daily Check in thread has people at all stages of the plan, and several who have long completed it and are happy to provide a view on how people are doing.

    Normally splitting threads like this die very quickly, but it does seem to have grown some legs.

    Hi Everyone! I've been MIA since thursday. Way too much going on this past weekend and I did't get to do w1d2 :\ This week is looking alot better. I should have no problem getting to the gym and staying on track.

    Its good to have a few people ahead, gives us all something to look forward to. B)

    I think new threads at some point need to be made, due to over 4000 replies, it gets a little unruely

    Maybe.

    You could summarise the majority of posts as:

    Well done
    Next session is intimidating
    It's mainly mental strength from week 5
    Slow down
    Speed comes from miles under your feet
    Short paces
    Are your shoes appropriate
    RICE

    Along with a lot of spurious advice about dreadmill elevation :) (it makes no difference)

    And:

    Running every day is a short route to the injury couch. Closely followed by said person ignoring the advice, landing on the injury couch and going quiet :)

    Hello all! I started C25K 4 weeks ago. I've tried it twice in the past, but never had the will power to keep pushing! I don't think I ever got past week 2 in the past. This time, I'm all in! I completed week 4, session 2 yesterday afternoon. I know I'm a bit ahead of the rest of you, but I will be needing to repeat week 4, and will undoubtedly be at the same place as the rest of you after a few weeks! I hope it's ok to chime in!

    On my "days off" I like to do a Leslie Sansone dvd. I also make sure to have 1-2 complete rest days each week.

    Good luck to everyone this week! :)


    Week 4 Day 2 ... impressive! Keep it up!!

    Finished week 1 tonight ( took an unexpected day off yesterday) anyway. I pushed myself too hard tonight, and had to walk longer during walking sections of the second half, however, I still feel accomplished. I am going to repeat week 1, after tonights struggle.

    I would love to join this group! Tomorrow will be W1D3 for me. Yesterday I did day 2 of week 1 and was able to keep doing the intervals until I completed the 5k distance. I wanted to see what my time would be. I did it in52 min! On my off days I do some wii fit training plus or rowing machine or Zumba at the gym.

    Way to go! Just to let you know, I tried to do that and continue until I had a full hour in on my treadmill and ended up with a knee hurting. I had to take time off and I just restarted last week. It is hard to make myself stop after the program tells me to, but I have not had any knee pain. Just be careful! Congrats!

    Nothing wrong with walking more or repeating! You will get there! Just keep it up and don't give up completely! Way to go!

    W2D1 - Done! The last two jogs was more of a trot ... and that last 'brisk walk' ... well I'm not sure how 'brisk' it was.

    I have been walking everyday for about an hour all month so hopefully I won't get injured. Thanks for the reminder though. Sometimes I get a little driven. W1D2 tomorrow. I'm really enjoying discovering what my body can do!
