Me! Me! Well, I started today actually. Just got back from day 1!
I did C25K a year ago during the summer - it was fantastic. It actually works!! Life got busy and I had to stop running, but I really want to start again. So, here I am! Good luck everyone!
I just did wk1d1...had trouble towards the end as I didn't realize my 1/2 way turn would make me run the last 3 runs uphill...better planning maybe next time on my part. I downloaded from itunes, but was disappointed it was just run...walk...run...walk...then I found a great music podcast which I downloaded and it was better.
What music did you find Bevie?
The ones I used were: (just google them)
Suz's podcasts (Kiss my Black ***)
Go Nicole Yourself
They're decent - I'm still trying to figure out how to make my own!
here is the link to the music blog I found, I liked her music best so far and I have checked out a few site.
I just did w1,d2 today. Started last Thursday. I also go to a Zumba class which is why I haven't run again until today. My goal is to do my first 5K in May 2011. I turn 40 in May so it's my gift to me. I may actually run one sooner - I don't know yet. All I know is I really need to pick up the pace. I want to set a goal for my time but I'm not sure yet what is realistic. Need to do some reading.
I just started the c25k this week also! Today will be w1d2 for me. I'm excited and have a 5k in exactly 9 weeks that I am going to enter. Does anyone else have a race at the end of the 9 weeks?
I'm a 40 yr old male, about 200 pounds, so I'm also trying to stay around 1,600 calories per day to hopefully lose around 20 lbs during the 9 weeks.
Just got done with W1D2. I have the c25k app for my iPhone, which puts me through 5 minute warmup walk, then 9 sixty second runs with 8 ninety second walks in between, then a 5 minute cool-down walk. So all together, it is 31 minutes. I did 2.3 miles in that time including warmup and cool-down.
Felt good! Anyone else have a good one today?
BAH! Well I didn't get to start Monday like planned but I am doing day one tonight.
I was trying to get the appy, found one on Itunes, buy it find out it only works on Iphone or Itouch I just have a reg Ipod, so I did find a podcast finally (hopefully the music is good) and now I am good to go, also got some new shoes, my others where not as sturdy.
