Starting w1d1 2/10/12 Anyone want to join me?!?!

It's been two years since I ran this program. It's been over 7 months since I ran and or worked out. Please tell me there are others out here like me! I need encouragement to keep me going. Any takers on wanting to start this journey with me?

    Hey!

     

    How did your week go?  I hope it was wonderful!  Are you in W2 now?

     

    I just finished W1 today.  It's my second time doing c25k.  Last time around (2010), I was about 30lbs heavier and was running at a 14-15 min pace.  This week I did my running portions alternating between a 9:14 and 10 minute mile.  A huge accomplishment for me and feeling great.

     

    Happy to be your online running bud!

    W2D1 today.  Managed to continue alternating between 6.0 and 6.5 on the treadmill (with 1.0 incline) and it was definitely more challenging than week 1.  Not quite feeling like 9-10mm is a "slow and steady" pace , though 10mm is surprisingly comfortable!

    Hi Sindi and Shauna!

     

    I didn't see your post, and started another one for February starters! Please drop by that thread and let us know how y'all are doing! Since you are ahead of me, I could use your point of view

     

    Take Care!!

    Hi Ladies,

     

    I started C25k (again, 4th try) today, so I'm a bit behind at W1D1. I've almost completed the program before, although I haven't run or had a serious workout in many, many months. I'm hoping to get back into the habit of being a regular at the gym, figuring out a way to run outside when the weather warms up (Massachusetts isn't the best place for outdoor winter running) and be in better physical health before I have kids.

     

    I'd love to join this thread, I could use some motivation to keep me going towards these goals. Good luck with week 2!

    Congratulations on getting back on the wagon!  I have definitely had times where I was more active, less active, more motivated, less motivated.   This life stuff is no joke!

     

    How is your running going?

     

    I am in Week 4 and still doing at least one run a week in my VERY HILLY neighborhood.  It's brutal when a steep grade coincides with a running portion but gives me a huge sense of accomplishment!  Pretty psyched for Week 5!

     

    In addition to c25k, I'm doing yoga on most days (great post-run stretch, btw) and The Dailey Method (a brutal barre-based fitness class).  I'm currently on day 24 of my self-imposed 30 Day Fitness Challenge which I'm blogging about at:

    Can't wait to hear how you're doing!

    Hey Ladies!

     

    How's your running going?

     

    After a hiatus, I returned to running, finishing my first 5k about a month ago in 32:40.  I'm currently training for my first HALF MARATHON on 10/7 and loving running more than ever!  My most recent long run was 6miles and I can't believe how much things have changed.

     

    I hope you're all well!
