I haven't started yet My 3 year old has been so sick. I am hoping we have all of his meds figured out and then I will be sane enough to start.

Okay second week on Week 2. I did 30 minutes of rotating the minutes plus the 5 minutes warm up and cool down. I think taking this slow is going to be the best bet for me, I will see how it goes!

Xanadoodle, Way to go on finishing Week 1! Doesn't it feel great! You are going to do so good with week 2!

Babygrant, Sorry to hear your kiddo is sick, hope they get better soon!

babygrant, don't worry about other people seeing you they really don't care. You should have seen me on the treadmill, I sure I looked like a fish out of water, but we all have to start somewhere. You look fine, what most people will be thinking anyway is they should be doing that instead of eating potato chips and watching TV.

I don't think people really care that much either. Of course, I get paranoid that people at the gym will hear my crazy labored breathing as I try to run for 60 seconds and call 911 cause they think I am dying. I just do it anyway and figure that one day I won't have a death rattle when I jog.

And even if someone does care that I look dumb, so what? Why would I care what a stranger thinks?

Hi Xanadoodle! I'm going to start the C25k in Februrary. I'm gonna look to all of you for inspiration! Good luck with the rest of the program

Okay started week 3 today and made. I felt like such an accomplishment to actually run for 3 minutes straight.

Did W3D2 today. It was awesome! I totally agree with the sense of accomplishment you were talking about Dollypie. I am excited about finishing week 3 and hitting the big challenge of week 4.

So I am doing week 3 again this week and doubling the time. Just feel that the week 4 routine is a little much for me now.

Last night I went to the gym resigned to the fact that I was going to have to do a 4th day of week 3, my w3d3 went HORRIBLY (tried running outside on concrete when I normally run on the treadmill). But once I got to the gym I decided to give w4d1 a shot and just see what would happen. I DID IT!!
I should add that halfway through I had to lower the speed on the runs because I was getting too winded, but I was able to maintain running. I might let week 4 last a little longer than the normal 3 days. I think I am still smarting from having such a miserable w3d3.

Dollypie - I totally know how you feel about the fear of moving on. the move from w3 to w4 is really big, but the sense of accomplishment at the end of w4d1 was great!!!

Concrete is really hard on your legs, and that's on top of the treadmill/no treadmill difference (which seems to be pretty typical in most runners-- running wthout the treadmill is thought of as harder.) If you're going to run outside can you try to find somewhere paved in asphalt, which is much softer?

Good for you for sticking with it. Isn't it fun to see the program working?
