Congrats on completing week 1!  Sometimes the hardest part of working out is to get started and you’ve overcome that 🙂

I have not done C25k, but I love to run.  I have done a ton of 5k’s, a lot of 10k’s, 2 half marathons, and am training for my first full.  My biggest running tip is to get fitted for shoes.  Good luck on your upcoming race- and definitely keep us posted on your progress!

I’ve done that program twice now from beginning to end and I love it! I don’t keep up with it anymore because I have not been doing my running outside. It’s perfect for outdoor routes. I love that it tells you when to turn around at the half way point. Hope you enjoy it!

I started it about 6 months ago and made it through week 4 when I broke my foot. I never started it again after it healed =(

Awesome! I didn’t follow c25k, but I did find out that after years of just knowing I hated running, I actually loved it. I started slow, similar to c25k. I think it’s a great plan….listen to your body and don’t beat yourself up if you need to repeat a week. I’m excited for you and your first 5k.

I started it this week as well.  I have found several different programs and have advanced  bit in the one that is 60 seconds run / 90 seconds walk the first week,  but the one I’m doing now is a bit harder for me.  It is a five minute walk followed by a two minute run for 30 minutes.  It is really embarassing how hard it is for me to jog slowly for 8 minutes! 

Even though I have completed the first week;  I don’t think I’m ready to advance to 3 minute jobs just yet.  I keep telling myself that if I stick with it, it will happen,  but man it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere!

We started this week!  Well actually we started last week but my husband made us restart since he only got to run once and my daughter and I did it 2 times.

It made a huge difference going to a running store and getting fitted for the correct shoes and bra!!Hope you enjoy it – I have a manatra I sing during the tough part of the jobs.  It’s “skinny body, I can do it!”  Kind of lame but it gets me through the tough up hill run.

That is great!  I really really need to get my ass in gear, and want to do C25K also – Kind of waiting for it to be light after work so I’m not running in the dark.  But it is slowly getting lighter and lighter so I won’t have any excuse in a week or two!  I’m glad it seems doable!

@SuperKate:  I just finished week 5 of the C25K this week, tonight actually!  OMG so hard…I had to jog for 20 minutes straight tonight and it was so hard!

Keep up the good work…it def gets easier!  I have my first 5k scheduled for March 25th…

I’m not allowed to run right now (broke my ankle a few months ago and it’s taking ages to heal properly) but I’m interested in doing a couch to 5k when I’m allowed.  Just wanted to pop in here and say GOOD FOR YOU and good luck! 🙂

I just finished Week 3. Kind of scared of week 4, I’m still kind of struggling by the end of the last 3 minute run.  Good job starting!

I’m in week 2 – looking forward to being a runner at the end of it!  (And being fitter and more toned, haha).
