    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!

    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!

    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 amazing!

    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?!

    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 Been a killer running in mid 90 degree weather though.

    You will! Just keep doing as much as you can and eventually you'll be doing it all. :)

    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.

    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 safe

    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!!! :)
