    Hi Nikita138.  I've started the C25K as well, and am on my 2nd week. I'm really surprised that I'm not having any major pain.  (Usually in the past, I've tried running too far, too soon in my attempt to begin running again, which has ended in my leg muscles so sore I'd stop.)  I'm really enjoying the C25K schedule.

    Hi, I started C25K last week too.  I did W2D2 today and I'm really enjoying it so far, which was a pleasant surprise since I've spent a lot of time in the gym recently lifting weights and not a lot of time doing cardio.

     

    My background: I'm 31 living in Perth, Australia.  I used to run in high school and really enjoyed it.  As I got older and got a sedentry job the kilos have crept on.  I don't have a lot to lose (maybe 8kg) but I'm getting close to the unhealthy weight range for my height which bothers me.  My fiance and I have a lot of travel booked in the next six months (five weeks in New Zealand over Christmas and then six weeks travelling in March-April) so keeping up a gym routine is going to be impossible.  Runnin appeals because I can throw my shoes in the suitcase and can run anywhere

     

    Oh and I've signed up for the Color Run in Perth on 17 February 2013!  I want to run the whole thing if I can.

     

    Nice to meet you both, hopefully we get some more

    Prue
