I have been wanting to start c25k. I had planned on starting last week but then I got a cold so tomorrow sounds like a good time to start. Are you thinking of running Monday, Wednesday and Fridays?

If you want we can continue to come back to this thread and discuss how it is going for us. I might be able to make it past week 2/3 with some support because I have tried it twice before but never made it very far.

I did day 1 today. I had to force myself off the couch but I felt really good doing it. I will do day 2 on Wednesday. Knowing I said I would come back and update on this thread is what made me get off the couch actually

i want to run for distance not time but i cant figure out how to configure the app to make it do it that way.any ideas?

10-19-2013, 09:47 AM
I'm going to jump in and start on week two, week one is too weak for me, but week 3 might be a bit much!

10-19-2013, 06:07 PM
I just finished week 1 and it was good. Maybe a little too easy like amy said but at least it has started me into a routine.

10-19-2013, 10:59 PM
I am getting my self ready to start the c25k soon. I am walking 1.5 miles in 30 minutes on the treadmill 5 -6 times a week. I want to do the run or dye 5k in mid December. Everyone says the run or dye is a good one to start with because it is more about fun. I just hope to finish in under an hour.

How should my walking be before I start the c25k with running?

Susan - I walk at least an hour per day but it is slow with my dog. I would try week one and see what you think. It is mostly walking with short jogs. If you find a week difficult you can also repeat weeks if you need ro.

10-25-2013, 04:24 PM
Week 2 day 2 I find myself wanting to run for longer which is a good sign

10-25-2013, 10:30 PM
I'm joining in! I'll be starting over since I did week one and then got sick. It'll be nice to have some accountability!

10-26-2013, 03:40 PM
some time today ill be doing day 3 dam procrastinating.

10-28-2013, 05:18 PM
Are any of you doing this in a gym, rather than outside? Tredmilling it up?

Want to do this, but I'm SO overweight... am I just setting myself up for failure?

10-29-2013, 12:01 AM
I do it in the gym... I feel more comfortable with the control of how fast I run and walk. It works out pretty well for me minus all the wobbly bits, but that would happen off the treadmill as well. :)

I've also just restarted C25K! In March 2012 I ran a 10K after completing the program, but now I'm back to square one. D: It's tough to feel like I can't do anything I used to be able to do, but doing something difficult is better than laying on my couch!

11-08-2013, 10:46 AM
so i am restarting this too but in my own way. Yesterday i did the 5k to time how fast i could do it and i wasnt happy. My friend who is a "proper" runner says 30 mins is a good time so i have a lot of work to do. yesterday i did it in 49:24. by Christmas i want to be doing it in under 40. Think this is possible?
Yesterday (as usual) it wasnt my legs that gave in, it was my lungs and an old medical condition which frightened me into slowing but im hoping as i get fitter those things will improve again.

I have no question you can do it, Rechyl!

When I was regularly doing C25K before, I was jogging at 8.5kph (5.2mph). When it finally came time to try the 10K, I finished the race in 70 minutes. I was no speed demon, and I walked for about half a kilometer in the middle, but I surprised myself that day. I think with a combination of good mood, good conditions and a bit of adrenaline, you'll be amazed at what your body is capable of.

Hey guys I got sick with strep so I was off for a week stRting week 3 Monday

11-08-2013, 04:48 PM

Love this program!

I started day 1 yesterday! I'm doing this every other day and 30 day shred on the other days. I almost gave up, but I was resilient and made it through to the end of day 1! Tomorrow I'll go for day 2!

11-09-2013, 04:19 PM
so i was supposed to go today but i still ache from Thursday and woke up with a cold. Feel like im making excuses so i must be.

11-09-2013, 08:50 PM
everyone can come

11-16-2013, 03:42 PM
did week 1 day 3 today. Felt really good and i didnt get out of breath but i did feel tired by the end.
Im doing it in the gym so after the treadmill i did some rowing and then a lot of weights and im feeling the burn tonight. My knees are rather painful but im still glad i went.

On the way home i had a shot on the swings something i hadnt done for probably 20 years and it was so much fun i started giggling.

How is everyone getting on?

11-17-2013, 02:12 PM
Did W1D3 on Tuesday and haven't been back since! Guess that means I need to pull myself together and get to the gym today to start W2.

11-18-2013, 02:36 PM
tomorrow is week 2 day 1 - will see how it goes.
yes Kahokkuri get back on it! You know how great it feels once you have done it.
