    just did week 6 day 1. kinda just wanna skip ahead to the end now. I've been pushing my work out to 5 k any way and I think I could do it non stop but I will follow the program. just keep aiming for pb each time.

    My goal is not just the 30 mins but I want to scissor do 5km in that 30 mins

    finished week 6 day 2 yesterday. As always I pushed through in to the cooldown with a slow jog rather than a walk but I saw an opportunity to crack 35mins for 5k (i always push my workout to 5km regardless of when the c25k app tells me to stop) so I hammered the last 200m. It just goes to show that even when you think you have nothing left, you can still give more. It is always the mind that will give up before the body. The only time you really see the body give up before the mind is when you see the marathon runners that look drunk near the end. that is the mind wanting to keep going with the body giving up.

    here is a lovely picture i took at the end of the run. This was the first time I have actually had to park my butt on a chair for a while before making my way back to the car.

    I'm starting out... getting back into running after a loòòong break. I am up to 32 mins of walk/run and I have a 10k race booked in July. Eek!

    Me too. Back in the saddle again (for the 3rd or 4th time I think?). W2D1 complete. Again... ;)
  • Well done to everyone with their successes! I’ve taken another break because this winter has really kicked my asthmatic butt. Even when I haven’t felt sick I’ve needed my fast-acting inhaler.

    Week one of c25k is in the books for me! Feeling great. I was a runner for years before two babies back to back so I'm just getting back to my love of running. Week one was tough but fun and I LOVE being up and out of the house before everyone wakes to get some "me" time and clear my head.

    Yeah. Babies are really bad for your routine! My son is nearly 9 now so no more excuses. I'm also loving running again.... after the first 10 minutes!!

    finished week 7 today. technically I've done the full thing as tonight I just kept on running until I hit the 5km Mark (33:25). so running for 30 minutes is no issue.

    ive also ditched the 5 minute warm up. One minute tops before I start running

    I run through most of the cool down. I might ditch the warm up too. Good idea.

    I love the warm ups and cool downs! I'm running with a screwed up hip labrum and the walking really helps get all the surrounding muscles loosened up. I went through PT over the summer with the goal of "getting those glutes firing," so when I do the warmup I concentrate on form and try to remember what I'm supposed to be doing.
