Noticed the last thread didn't fly and there are quite a few people interested So who wants to do a challenge.

I am willing to start anytime but as a group we should come to an agreement I guess eh?

babygrant,

I have started week 1, but am taking it really slow. I am willing to start over w/ a new date. In the mean time I can stick to the elliptical and bike.

Okay I started week 2 today and found it quite easy. I am finding it easier to run at a faster pace as well. I would say that I average 5.0 mph when I run and walk at 4.0 mph

Hi,
I am getting ready to start the C25K and had a sorta silly question. When they say 20 minutes total or 30 minutes total are they including the 5 minute warmup or is the 5 minute warm up on top of the 20-30 minutes? I really want to be able to run a 5k one day and I want to get this right.

The times are after warmup. But either way, if you stick with it you'll get to 5K.

Okay ladies so I am on week 2 now and it is not so bad at all. Since I am taking this slow, I am actually doing Week 1 for two weeks, Week 2 for two weeks, and so forth. This way I don't over do it and get discouraged at all. During that second week I try and go for an extra five or ten minutes too.

Are you girls running outside in your neighborhood, outside/inside on a track, or on a treadmill? I am running on a treadmill with an incline of 1 or 2. One of the trainers at the gym told me to at least put it at an incline of 1 to compensate for the wind resistance that you would have running outside.

I agree with Maria, the times are after the warmup. I also do a 5 minute cooldown afterwards as well.

I have just started, I am on d2w1. I can't wait til I'm not exhausted by a 60 second run! I am doing the program on a treadmill in the gym and I think I will incorporate the incline into my workouts from now on, that is a good idea for when I have the courage to try it outside.
I am so excited about being able run a 5k one day! It has been a goal for a long time, I've never really thought I could do it but after reading alot the threads on this board I definitely think that maybe I might be able to do it

I hope I'll be able to do it. I'm gonna do it inside first. Then I'll go outside if I have the courage to do so. :-)
