i am! i just started week 9 yesterday with a 3-mile jog with my sister. i just barely made it to the 3-mile mark [she actually ran farther] but i was stoked especially since i almost quit a couple of times during the run! and i actually went out for a quick 2.5 mi run today just because. lol. but i’m in the last 2 weeks before my first ever 5k next weekend so i’m really hoping to consistently hit 3+ miles the next few running sessions.

i am also a big fan of this program. without it, i wouldn’t have become such a fan of running. i’ve been converted!

i think i can do it, but i KNOW it’s gonna be hard πŸ™‚ normally when i put my mind to something, i ACCOMPLISH it, so i’m hoping this won’t be any different. btw, you gave great advice on the thread i started about this the other day!!

way to go babyboo! that is awesome progress! high five!

i hit 3.3 miles today and i found it was much easier than monday. probably because i didn’t have to run any hills. i actually felt like i could run a little further.

babyboo, I’m still doing the C25K, well actually I finished it last week, but the week before that, I had bronchitis so I didn’t get to run at all, which was driving me nuts, I never get sick, and it figures I do when I really couldn’t afford to!  But anyway, I got back into it and ran a couple 3 milers, and I am going to run my first 5K this evening, its pouring down rain…I’m just hoping not to be in last place and I’ll be happy!

I started this week, it has been nice to have a goal/focus. I find it easier to breathe during the running than the walking toward the end, haha.

I have been doing it on the treadmill because it’s been raining outside, and I downloaded the C25K ap for the iphone.

it did go well, thanks!  I ran it pretty slow, but not any slower than I have been running, I was just happy to have run the whole thing without walking.  I think I am going to keep up with the three mile runs for a couple weeks (hopefully being able to up my speed) before I move on to train for a 10K…babyboo, what programs do you plan to use for your extended training?

thanks babyboo!  I checked out the Hal Higdon program and it looks doable!  A half marathon would have been the next goal after a 10K anyway.  thanks again!
