Default C25K in 2010

I noticed as I was reading through the last few posts, that there was some conversation about starting a new thread, so I figured I'd see about that. I'm getting ready to start on W1D1 tomorrow, and am hoping to here from some of you veterans what you found easy or difficult. I just downloaded the iphone app, and am loading music on it now. I'm so excited for 2010!!!

(oh, by the way, I'm Meredith, and working on not just exercising but weight loss in 2010)

I'm going to start the program on the 11th. I've been in 5k's but I haven't ran in about 6 months and I've gained so I want to use this program this time around. good luck!

I have just finished week 2...I have to admit, that running for 90 seconds is tough for me, but I did do it - not sure if I should go to week 3 yet or repeat week 2. Any advice?

I'm starting C25K Monday. Been wanting to but didn't have the motivation until now. I just downloaded the iTouch application today.

Wiginn, do what feels right, you can always repeat a week, or even just a day.

I am headed for the Dreadmill in a few minutes for w6d3 and I am dreading that too, but our bodies are capable of more than we think. That being said, I have had to repeat weeks more than once too and sometimes you just need a little more time to get used to the idea!!

I'm starting the program tomorrow. I started running back in the fall and worked up to 3/4 mile in one shot but then life got ahead of me and I didn't have time to continue with it. I've decided that it's time to take time for ME and that my kids and husband can do without me for 30 minutes or so a day..it's not gonna kill them!

I plan on starting C25K as soon as this miserable cold I have clears up. I have the iPod app all downloaded and everything, but then, alas, I got ill, and I'm going to have to wait a week or so. I will definitely check in once I get started.

I gave W3D1 a try today and I did it!! I am doing the program on a treadmill so I slowed down my running pace but did make it through the whole 3 minute segments both times!! Thanks for the advice!!

I hope to start c25k in 2010 as well. No start date yet, I am just getting back into an exercise program so I want to get my body used to just walking for 30 minutes first, lol! I also have a previous knee injury so I want to build up slowly, and will probably be repeating days/weeks when I do start. I am thinking of starting it in March maybe? Can't wait to hear about everyone's success to motivate me to get started!

I was planning to start two weeks ago, but I came down with bacterial bronchitis that was resistant to the first two antibiotics we tried.

But! I took the dog out for a walk today without wheezing and coughing so I think I'll give a go at starting up this week.
