I was too embarrassed to even look when I last posted in here... I finished the program in February, was "running for 30 minutes" occasionally - note NOT regularly - after that, and fell off the wagon completely due to illness and work travel.

Water under the bridge, to use another cliche.

I started up again today, unsure of where to begin. It has been about a month since I have run at all. I went all the way back to Week 3, and sure enough, that was the right place to begin. I totally misjudged my distance since I was used to going so much further, and I ended up with a big walk at the end.

Nowhere to go but up...

I like the idea of a graduates thread!! I have finished C25K TWICE now and never really had a followup plan after that so I ended up stopping running. I didn't feel like I fit in any of the longterm runners threads. ... I don't have any interest in running more than 5K at a time and/or more than 30-45 minutes at a time. I was thinking I needed to work on distance or speed but wasn't able to keep it interesting in the absence of intervals....

Congrats to all the graduates and keep on

BTW I was nowhere near 5K at the end of C25K , more like 3K the second time
