COUCH TO 5K
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!!
I agree 100%! I am on week 9, planning on doing my 5k at the end of this week. I am still slow, but I am running at a consistent pace and not stopping so it's a huge accomplishment to me! You can do it!0
I'm on week 3. Is there a group for this? Feel free to add me for encouragement. I was always sporty, but never a runner. I was always terrible at it.... So far so good with the C25 program.
I'm new here, but I am in. Me and a friend are starting tonight! I am hoping having a friend do it with me will result in me finishing!0
Im with you all the way................"WE CAN DO THIS"0
Was reading all the comments and couldn't agree more. I HATE (or hated) running. I started the C25K program so I would have an alternative to the gym and I think it is so incredibly wonderful. I couldn't run 1 minute without feeling sick to my stomach and I just did week 6 workout 2 yesterday. I ran ten minutes straight without stopping, and it wasn't even that hard.
Just done day 1, was pleased I could do it! Don't feel too bad either but not going to skip ahead, just Incase I do myself an injury! Blooming belly wobbles though and then Ll the blood rushes to it and it itches, I can exactly have a good bear style belly rub in the middle of town can I? What's a girl to do?!0
where can i find the info on this? i want to try it too!!! someone get back to me!!!! thanks!!0
I started last week, but started at wk 4, day 2 since I've been running some already. I'm doing the ipod version so I don't have to look ahead and freak about what is coming next. I just run when they tell me to run and walk when they tell me to walk and try not to think about it too much..lol. Been a killer running in mid 90 degree weather though.0
I only managed to do 17mins of it, i was dying!!! Hope I get better and improve?0
Starting today...haven't ran since high school (many, many years ago). Let's see how this turns out.0
where can i find the info on this? i want to try it too!!! someone get back to me!!!! thanks!!
Just scroll to the table at the bottom and it tells you the 3 workouts you have to do for each of the 9 weeks!
I started on Sunday0
I finished up W2d1 this morning, am doing it on the treadmill. I was never a runner but so far am liking it and am amazed that I am surviving. lol0
I just started this today! Good Luck! )0
I only managed to do 17mins of it, i was dying!!! Hope I get better and improve?
You will! Just keep doing as much as you can and eventually you'll be doing it all.0
I'm in!!! I'm on Week 3, day 2. I absolutely love this program. I have it on my iPhone, so I run while I listen to my music and just do what it tells me. My husband and I would like to do some 5k races next summer, so we both are training for it. I hope I'm ready by then, lol.0
I just started today as well. We can do it!0
I would love to do this. It would be perfect when I am at our office since they have sidewalks. Normally at home we live in the country so there is no way to run on the road and be safe0
I am in. I did week 1 day 2 today.0
I went for a walk/jog to day - but gentle so as not to mess up my C25K plan. But did it with my 'hold you in'/spanx undies on - thanks to a tip from a friend and it did stop the wobble! making it much more comfortable to run!!!
so tip for those with a wobbly belly, get some spanx!!!0
