Motivation is what i need.
Motivation is what i need.
I started Saturday...so I am in with ya0
I started week 7 today. I LOVE IT! You will be shocked at how quickly you progress. I started it 60lbs overweight when my son was a month old after a long hard pregnancy. If I can do it, anybody can.0
I started it this morning!0
i started yesterday! would love to have some friends on the journey with me!0
Count me in! I've actually run 2 5K's (my second I ran on Saturday, finished in 43:30)- I should have been doing the C25K before but I figured since I'm only jogging I should be okay, right? WRONG! I could hardly move yesterday- my shins and abs hate me.
Long story short, I'll be training the right way from here on in because nothing feels as awesome as knowing you've ran/walked/jogged further than you ever have before, and you did so without zombies chasing you!
Good luck everyone!0
I'm on week 9. I honestly thought my Lungs were going to explode at the 200 metre mark on the first week (probably ran too quickly:-)
I just did the complete 5k earlier this eve. The best tip I can give is to just stick with it, I remember getting to wk 5 and looking ahead to what I would be doing in wk 6 and thinking 'how the hell will I manage that?!'.......but I did and you will all too, just stick with it, can't recommend enough!!0
If you can't pass the 'talk test' while running- SLOW DOWN!!
I actually injured myself because I was going too fast.
If you have bad shin pain, you need to rest for a few days and ice those babies. I didn't, and ended up with an entire week off, and my shins are still tender.0
Thanks for the shin advice! I've been off them since the race - today is day 2, and I don't plan on exercising until at least tomorrow evening, but we'll see how I feel them. I may end up just on the elliptical.0
I'm starting today!0
I started this morning!! I completed the program once before so it really does work but I slacked off and stopped running so I'm back at it!!0
Me too! I was up to week 5 then had to have surgery. Im starting back at the begining today0
I'm on week 4. I LOVE THIS PROGRAM! And you will be totally surprised at your own body's abilities. I could barely run a block when I started. Now, just 3 weeks in, I can run 8-10 minutes (.75 - 1 mile) at a stretch! Running a 5K in July!!0
I started today on my lunch hour!0
I'm finishing week 5 today0
I will join yah, I have already finished my week 3 - Day 1 this morning.0
I'm on week 3 and I love it. I had never run before in my life, so this has been a good way to ease into it. My first 5K is August 25 - so there's motivation for me to complete it.0
I'll join you! I'm re-starting though... to be more accurate. Haha. Had to stop due to flu last time. ): And then when the flu finally cleared up I didn't have the stamina to keep up where I was so I have to start from the beginning.0
There is a C25K group- if you haven't joined, you should!!0
Did it and loved it. Could never run before now I'm flying and doing 50 min at a time.0
I started week 3 this morning. At 242.5lbs, if I can handle this, anyone can handle this.
