Ok y'all, I ran my first 5k this past weekend and it went really well, I think! My only goals were to finish and to run the whole thing and I did both. My time was 33 min and 28 seconds. I'm pretty proud of myself and eager to run another in the future

Now, I want to work on speed and of course distance. Going to start training for 10k and after that I hope to eventually be able to do a half marathon at some point.

Sad to say I'm discontinuing my running program. It just isn't working with my joints. I've replaced it with cycling class at the gym and swimming. Sorry guys! Good luck in your running programs!

Hey everyone, I've started back up again!

Last week I did Wk 1 D 1&2 and Yesterday I decided to skip up to Wk 3! The first 3 minute set was pretty rough, but the second one I had a nice pace going and was focused. I think I need to work on my breathing too. I plan on continuing along from here now, no more skipping I have a 5K to train for in September. I made it to week 5 last time (with some repeats) So I am hoping not to get hung up there again!

I see everyone else is doing pretty well too! Keep it up everyone!

I ended up doing W8D3 last night, but since I average a 15-minute mile I figured I'd only worry about the time, not the distance. But as I was approaching the finish, I decided to keep pushing myself until I actually did the 5k! It took me about 45 minutes, but I got through it in one piece! And now that the 8 weeks are up, for the time being I think I'll concentrate on doing a 30 minute run every other night. When I'm ready to commit more time I may start working toward the 10k with the next app.



Several years ago vs. last night . . . I've come so far, nothing's gonna stop me now!

Justrunning - that is fantastic and fast! Congrats on your first 5 k.
I did my first 5 km on Mother's Day, hubby helped me especially pushing me through the last km ( 4km being my longest run). Completed in just under 37 minutes. Going to work on getting under 35 minutes now.
You look amazing, Elladorine. You have transformed wonderfully going by the picture.

Congrats on w5d3, KarinRose! Way to go with pushing yourself through the hard part. Honestly, for me, I think learning how to PUSH through even when I don't want to is the most important part of this whole thing.

justrunning and noshoes, congrats on your 5ks! Nice times, too!

Silverfire, hey, welcome back!

Elladorine, I always got tempted to do the same thing with skipping to the full 3.1 miles whenever I see I'm close. Congrats!

I FINALLY finished w9d3! So I'm DONE, woohoo! I got to do my last day outside, which was kind of a shock to the system after two weeks of running exclusively on the treadmill. It took me about 44 minutes to do my 3 miles, but I had enough left in the tank to really speed up for the last quarter mile, so I think I could've done it a bit faster if I'd pushed harder. I'm planning to do two more 3 mile runs this week, then next week add in a short fourth run. I'm still going to pop in here to check in now and again, if y'all don't mind.

And, just because I'm curious, can you all name a couple of your favorite songs to run to? Trying to build a better running playlist. :-)

Don't know how much help I'll be, KarinRose, because I've got kind of weird taste in music, but I like fast metal like old Metallica or Megadeth. Anything electronic is good for me, too - Skinny Puppy, VNV Nation, Kovenant, etc.

I have extremely eclectic taste in music, so all is welcome. The one thing I have to have when I jog is *variety*!

Wk 6 D2 done! Yay! :-)

Wk 6 done!

A little disturbed that when I checked my pulse rate on the treadmill after jogging 22 minutes at my normal pace it wasn't anywhere near the "target heart range."

Is that even possible???

W3 is in the BAG BABY! I'm so ready for week 4!

I like to use Songza when I'm at the gym/running. It's got a variety of playlists that are based on the activity you are doing. It's really expanded my horizons when it comes to gym/running tunes.

This is a good running mix, just the right tempo to keep me going

Thanks ladies!

I ran another 5k since posting in this thread, with my times a little bit faster. For now I've decided to do a 5k every weekend, and run at least 1 mile every other day with a quarter mile warm-up and cool-down walk. So far it's feeling pretty good!
