    Week 1, run 2, done! Enjoyed it this morning.... hoping it's as fun early before work on Tuesday!

    Well done everyone. We are getting there. It feels lovely to have ticked off another session doesn't it.
    Was hoping to start week 2 today but it doesn't look like I will fit it in, so it will be Monday. I find it hard to fit in as I have to have someone to mind my children. But I am determined so I will make it happen.
    Good tip on the running a bit slower. I need to take that on board.
    W2D1 for me is 1.5 mins running + 2 mins walk x 4 times and 1 min running + 1 min walk x 2 times. So 8 mins running again. Is yours the same ?

    I think mine is just 90 sec run and 2 m walk on repeat - 20m not including warm up

    Hello everyone, I’ve been meaning to start this for a while. I’m hoping that joining a group and posting will give me the motivation and the commitment to actually do it!

    Week 5 run 1 complete - 5 minute warmup walk. Followed by three 5 minute runs with 3 minute recovery walks, then 5 minute cool down walk. Felt good. Kept an easy pace. I ran at a public park on a jogging trail and took time to notice others were also running slowly. Very few were really running fast.

    Congratulations! Sounds like you're doing fantastically!

    Well I have completed W2 D1. I found it ok. Not sure when I will get next one in but hopefully Wednesday or Thursday. I want to keep going now that I have the momentum!

    Go for it. It is really helpful to come and log your run. Keeps you motivated!

    I had a very busy weekend volunteering for a local charity gala, so no running. Will try to get back at it today!
  • kilobykilokilobykilo Member Posts: 775 Member Member Posts: 775 Member

    I'll join!
    I completed the c25k last year in July and did my 5k in 38 minutes. I really wish i'd kept up with it. I haven't run since so i'm going to start again on 19th March (9 weeks until my cousins wedding as i'd like to complete it before then) My running days will be Tuesday, Thurday, Friday. I'll let you know how I get on!
    Kepp up the good work for everyone whos started :)
  • kilobykilokilobykilo Member Posts: 775 Member Member Posts: 775 Member
    Run three is going to be tomorrow, my calf muscles are really tight and soles of my feet sore..... hoped they'd fix overnight so I could still go out and run but don't want to set myself up for a fail so moved it on a day!
  • Just_CeciJust_Ceci Member Posts: 5,870 Member Member Posts: 5,870 Member
    I did w2d1 yesterday, slow and steady. Ended up with 1.78 miles total including the warm-up and cool down.

    W1D1 completed!
  • VanVanDianeVanVanDiane Member Posts: 1,132 Member Member Posts: 1,132 Member
    @kilobykilo I've had very tight calf muscles as well- and slightly tender behind/above my left heel... have upped my stretching and incorporated some eccentric heel stretches in as recommended by a runner mfp pal.

    @Just_Ceci slow and steady wins the race! I made a concerted effort to slow down again tonight to give my joints and ligaments a fighting chance - don't want to burn out before I'm fairly started and have had a few niggles and aches already. It's hard to know what's normal and what to push through isn't it?

    @christeenah89 well done for starting!

    W2D1 complete! o:)

    Full on blister on my sole, hoping it'll be okay for a run tomorrow, but am hobbling at the moment!

    Well done everyone getting the runs in!
  • emmamcgarityemmamcgarity Member Posts: 1,482 Member Member Posts: 1,482 Member
    Week 5 run 2 complete
  • kilobykilokilobykilo Member Posts: 775 Member Member Posts: 775 Member
    Ok skipping week one day three.... have a less walk heavy day today which should help with the blisters but not gonna run again until Friday and go straight in with week 2 day 1 to keep on plan, won't be skipping runs in later weeks though!
