Just started the C25K with two friends here in RI. We had been lifting and doing gym cardio for 7 weeks now and one of us had the idea that we should do a 5k. On the advice of another friend we started the C25K program. It has only been two days but I already enjoy the feeling of getting out and running the trails of the local monastery. The first day was a burn but today was really good. Looking forward to completing this and doing our first 5k.
Congratulations on your new goals and focus for the 5k. It will be a wonderful experience and hopefully you will begin to plan for other race opportunities. They are very motivating and a terrific way to boost enthusiasm for staying on track in continued progress. Best wishes and many happy miles!
I am doing the C25K Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and weightlifting Monday, Wednesday, Friday and targeting Sunday as a rest or make up day from the week. Each lifting day I am starting and ending with 10 mins of elliptical and doing chest & triceps Monday, back & biceps Wednesday, and legs & shoulders Friday. I had started goign to the gym 7 weeks ago and started the lifting 5 weeks ago. Before starting the C25K I had been doing 40 mins of elliptical and now enjoying the trail running over that.
