Hi there! I have never written anything on this blog but I have been following. Yesterday I finished my W5D2. I am getting closer to the 20 minute run and I am a bit nervous. So far I am loving the program and I am very excited about running. I can see some changes in my body already. Is anybody out there about to jump into W5D3 as well?
W6D1 in the books, yeah, seemed easy after last week
I did W6D2 the other day, but in my attempt at W6D3 I spaced out and forgot how long I was supposed to run so I only hit 22 instead of 25, gonna have to do this one again.
Where did everyone go, surely you haven't given up?
W5D3 under my belt! It was really hard. Yesterday I completed W6D1 and I thought it was hard too but not as much... I run on a treadmill and I have been running with a 1 inclination. I wonder if, as a beginner runner (I had never run before in my life), this is what I should be doing. Maybe I should run without incline until my body is more used to it... Any thoughts?
Everybody who is sticking to the program: GOOD JOB!
@imustbecrazy: i haven't given up, but because of the two blizzards we had in the dc area recently i have nowhere to run (all the sidewalks are covered and most side roads are only one lane). so sadly i've had to stop for a while. i was about to do w4d3, and i'm wondering if i should just restart week 4 altogether when i eventually can get out and run again.
I totally forgot about all the blizzards everywhere back East, you might want to back off when you restart, how far is going to depend on how long it takes everything to thaw!
Glad to know people are sticking with it. We had a couple nice days last week, it is so much easier to run outside I can't believe it, I was really bummed when I had to use the treadmill at the gym the other night, it is so boring to me, not to mention the guy next to me smelled like he had run a really really long distance, if you know what I mean.
W7D1 is history, A big part of me kept saying "you can't do this, your legs hurt, you should stop" but the part that won out was the one that kept saying" yes you can, lots of other people have followed the plan, and you ARE going to do it too, just don't stop." The 4th track on the new Jason Aldene CD hleped also, it's very motivating, but for the life of me I can't rememer the title right now-man I'm getting old.
Hi New Year Cto5kers. I'm going over from the "other" thread for newbies who started the first week of January to invite you to a new combined thread. Looks like we've both lost a few members of our groups and we might find more inpsiration, motivation, direction, and discussion if we all band together. Look for the March Graduates thread. Hope to see you there!

Running: Complete Broad Street Run May 2013
Actually, Yes! Since completing the C25K I have run numerous races, including 2 half marathons. Unfortunatly after 2 bouts of pneumonia this year I find myself starting over. I am looking for a half marathon to run in the fall, and some shorter races between now and then. Know of any saturday runs in the seattle area?
