Late to the game since I just discovered the message board.
Just finished week 4 today and have been feeling pretty good so far. Not going to get over-confident since I have looked at the next couple of weeks and know that it gets a little tougher going forward.
If you need Nike+ friends, feel free to add me Mike_Rose46
Thanks for the insight. I seem to have the right mix of music on my I-pod when I run so it keeps me going. But, more importantly, I go into each run with the mindset that I am not going to let anything defeat me and I will get a better time or distance than the previous one. The Nike+ app really allows me to measure my progress but I guess being an accountant I like to see numbers to find the trend and if I am making any improvement.
I should be on week 7. Just been diagnosed with pneumonia and sooo poorly. Dreading starting again. Feel a complete failure. I pushed through the chest infection to do week 6. So fed up
W5D1 done! after dreading the commencement of week 5 Im glad that its underway and I was able to fairly comfortably complete the 5min runs for Day 1. Bring on the challenge of the 8 min runs on Friday!.....then that dreaded 20 min run. Still its all a great challenge and considering 5 weeks ago I would never have thought I would be able to run as much as I can now. Im in Queensland in Australia and whilst it seems most of you are suffering with heat and humidity we are in the midst of winter which makes it very hard to get up at 5am in the morning to run before work.
Heading towards my first 5k at the end of August and as a new runner at 50 years old I reckon its pretty good going and I am loving the C25 k program. :-)
