Finally got on a treadmill to see how my training is going. I've been running laps in a gym previously. I just bought new shoes yesterday... so that worked against me, but I did one mile (walk, run, walk....) and averaged a 16 minute mile... grr... I had to get off as my feet were really bothering me, so I went and rowed for a bit... then decided I wasn't a quitter... and got back on the treadmill and did a 12.5 minute mile... although I don't think I'm ready to keep up that pace for 3 miles quite yet. Then I walked a mile and half outside to get some fresh air... the gym was so hot and stuffy! I'm on W2D2... my husband moved on to week 3, I'm not quite ready to move on yet...

Little heavy on my legs but much better than Thursday.
Great job!

Hi Everyone
I'm VERY new to running and am currently in Week 2 of C25K. My goal is to complete the program and then move onto training to do the 2014 Princess Half Marathon. I'm 45...overweight (hopefully not for long) and have never been a runner...couldn't even say the word jog (LOL). But after my sister asking me to do the Half Marathon next year, I figured good as time as any....and it being a Disney Half...I'll be in my happy place so it's a win win!

Good luck everyone!

Congrats and welcome!

I did W8D2 yesterday, and am also going to look to increase my distances to do a half. I actually have decided that my 2014 goal for myself will to do the Tink 1/2 at DL and the F&W at WDW and go for the C2C. Highly ambitious both in terms of the running and the traveling, but I'm hoping to do it! I was actually going to start a PTR tracking my way to that goal! I think you will do great - what better motivation than getting to go to Disney!

Welcome aboard! Disney provides powerful motivation! If you're so inclined, check out my blog (link in my signature below) on how I'm putting the Power of the Mouse into my 5K training! Disney events are the only reason I ever decided to start running...

What treadmill mph speed to you run/walk? I'm doing 3-3.5 mph for both the jog and walk. I'm on week 2...I've tried a higher speed but just can't keep up the pace. Just would like to know what speed everyone else is at.
Thanks

I just finished week 1 of c25k today. I have never been able to run, but we are going on a cruise next Jan and I really want to run the CC5k! I have been doing a 3.0 walk and 4.2 run. I think I could run a little faster outside, but I'm a little nervous about falling off the treadmill or something. I probably won't run outside til after I complete the program when hopefully I won't be huffing and puffing so badly!

I feel this way about treadmills too! ha. So far I've been running at the track by my work which is FULL of people of all fitness levels. It really helps.

Another question about treadmill speed...when you run at one speed & walk at another do you adjust the speed each time or do you program it into your treadmill?
