I did the coolrunnings c25k and liked it. But I wasn't afraid to repeat weeks as needed! I can't remember if it was week 4 or 5, but one of them was *extremely* challenging for me (especially my lungs), and I just needed more time. So don't be afraid to repeat weeks, and don't get bummed if you guys get off track from each other. You don't have the same bodies, so you don't need to be on the same week.

I've actually done the program twice, with plans for more. the first time I just used the *time*. Second time through I did the actual mileage. When I do it again I'll try to increase the time. For right now, before I started it again, i've just been doing the 5K distance or a little beyond, to get my legs and lungs really used to it. Now, I'm a treadmill person, so eventually another step will be running on actual ground, LOL. I keep my treadmill at a bit of an incline, as "they" say that helps you train for real ground a little more.

It does get better, but I really do stress the concept of repeating weeks if your body needs it.
