I started this on the weekend and I also started the 30 day shred. Ambitious I am! lol. FH and I did it and was a really good start. We will be doing it again tonight. Managed to pull the first session pretty good. Suprised I could actually run lol.

I start week four today, its gonna be a lot more running it seems like but hopefully I will be prepared, it seems like I have progressed each week easily so hopefully today will be no exception! 

I don’t have an iphone, but there are a lot of podcasts and mp3s to download free.  I really like robert ullreys, I have used his most of the time, the music is basically technoish, but its not too bad to run to, kinda gets ya on a beat.

I just downloaded the app last night and will probably try it sometime next week (for some reason I’m a little apprehensive to try it out immediately!). Thanks for the feedback, now I’m not as intimidated!

I told myself I would start this two weeks ago and never did. I really have to! Keep us updated. πŸ™‚ You’re giving me hope that I can do it – I’m a terrible runner, as much as I don’t want to be.

I did it last year and I’m doing it again! When I started last year I had never been able to run before and I thought I’d DIE after the first session. I couldn’t do it in 10 weeks, but in about 15-20 I was able to jog 30 min without stopping and I did my first 5k!!

Then I stopped for some inexplicable reason.

I just restarted this week at week 3, and I’m hoping it doesn’t take me 15 weeks to get back to being able to jog 30 min!

I just finished week 3 day 1.  I tried the couch to 5k before, but always had problems with knee pain.  I’ve been proactive this time and I’m still free of knee pain πŸ™‚  (knock on wood)

ETA – If you have facebook you should join the couch to 5k group, the group gives lots of good advice and everyone is very supportive and inspirational!  Here’s the link http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/C25Kplan?ref=ts

Ok, I post about this every time, but I LOVE C25K.  I also 100% agree the iPod app makes it actually doable for me.

When I started 60 seconds was really hard for me, and last night I ran my 3 minute segments with out any problems at all!  And, the my sore and stiff legs finally warmed up, running actually felt good at one point (for a very short amount of time).

Keep it up, if you just do what the app says, you will be successful.  You will totally love it!

Good luck, and keep posting about your progress!

Oh also, follow the program to a tee.  One day off is perfect, two days off is ok once in a while.  I just took 3 days off, and my run was great, but I had a lot of trouble motivating myself to actually go out and do it.  It is much easier to do it every other day.

ITA with Kingcake!  When I skip two days in between I definitely feel it on the next run.
