Problems with my shorts are gone because my legs are a little toner so its fine!

I'm so happy everything is feeling good. I'm doing Jillian Michaels on my Day off and so far I'm feeling great!!
Awesome job!

Hello Good for you doing the C25K as well! I have started my program this week. Tomorrow is W1D3. I am currently walking at 3.5, and running at 4.5 soon. I can see this increasing as time moves along, but I have some health issues that I really need fixed first, which I'm working on.

If I can get to where I'm running at 5 I would be very happy with that. I think I can get there at some point.

Sounds like we're right about the same place speed-wise. I started at 4.5 today, but had the issues with my feet. I think it's because I'm flat-footed and over-pronate. Just ordered some new sneakers so once they arrive hopefully my issues will go away and I can do all of the jogs at 4.5.

Week 1 is in the books!!!

I've decided that I'm not going to look ahead-I'm just going to do each day on the podcast as it comes. I'm hoping that will keep me from freaking out.

I'm currently walking at 3.5 and I go from running 4.5 for the first run to 5.0 for the last one, gradually increasing the pace. I figure this way I'm training myself to finish strong so I cross the line looking like a real runner! I've also noticed that I feel better as the time goes on.

My parents have a Wii fit and it told me I'm obese too. It also makes this nasty little "ooo" sound when I step on it. Rude thing.

Awesome on completing week 1!

My wii board does the same thing. But, I think it might do that when my boys step on and they're all normal weight (one is under).

What kind of schedule is everyone following and what, if anything, are you doing on your off days?

My plan for the first week is to just do the 3 days - probably Thursday, Saturday, Tuesday. And then on Friday, Monday, and Wednesday I will do workouts with the wii fit/sports. I love the boxing as it really gets my heart rate going (and it's fun!). And some strength training and yoga.

My left ankle is a bit sore today and the upper/outer area of my legs, but overall I feel great.

I just finished week 1. I increased my speed from 4.5 to 4.6 for my runs. I also had an extra 20 mins, so I stayed on there and kept up the run/walk splits for that time.

Be careful with that and I speak from experience. I tried this program last year, and I ended up with a stress fracture. Because I'm a swimmer, my heart and lungs were ready to do more when the workout was over, so I kept going longer and at faster paces. Unfortunately, the bones in my left foot were NOT ready to go longer and at faster paces that quickly. So, this year I've promised myself that I will NOT push beyond the program. Of course, it's just as likely because of the excess weight I'm carrying-but I offer the warning just the same.

I forgot about the off day question.

This week I did the runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, swam on Tuesday and took Thursday off. I'm going to swim over the weekend because I do find it takes some of the soreness away.

Started this week; finished W1D2 yesterday. I'll finish the week tomorrow and will start Week 2 on Monday. I've never ran in my life, but I have loved this program. I downloaded the podcast and it has helped so much!

My goal is the 2011 Princess Half Marathon.

I love the Podcast too, it takes all the guesswork out and gives me a little encouragement right when I need it! You wouldn't think a disembodied voice from someone you don't even know could possibly make you feel good about what you're doing, but it does!

I like listening for him to tell me when to stop running/jogging. I think if I was watching a clock it would seem to take longer. Seems to go by fairly quickly with the music and just waiting for his voice to tell me I did it.

Thanks, I had not thought of that. Great advise. I will stick to the plan as directed.
