Good morning!

So, I just started the "Couch to 5k" program mostly using a Robert Ullrey's podcast. Let me tell you... I love it!

However, I'm just about to come to the end of week 1 and I want to make sure I'm ready to move to week 2. I am getting a little bit winded and sweating a lot before I get halfway through. For those of you who are familiar and/or have any suggestions... I'd welcome them!


In it to win it!!

If you think you need another week, take another week. Sweat is normal. however you may want to slow your pace down a little, you should not be winded, you should be able to carry on a conversation.

It's great isn't it... I was almost thru week 4 when below zero temps and getting sick screwed me up for about a week and a half. When I started up again, I had to go back all the way to week two. If I were you I would go ahead and repeat week 1 if you feel you need to. We need to give ourselves time.
Great job on starting the C25K!

I started (as a complete non-runner, and never athletic!) the C25K the first week of June. I don't think I ever repeated an entire week, but I certainly DID repeat days. As has been said - SLOW DOWN. You should be sweating, but not gasping.

Make it work for you - there is no 'deadline' - stretch it if you need to, and you'll continue to enjoy it... and good for you!
