Is it an app for your phone? I haven't used that one, but use joglog and I like that one - so far it has not acted up on me. My active.com C25k had a glitch in the very beginning and didn't record my progress, but since then it has been fine.

Yes, it's an app. I'll have to check out Joglog! I can't get anything to work!

Wow! Everyone is doing so well! I too am appreciating the everyday "encoruagements" I'm noticing... not being winded at the top of my stairs at home for starters. I've also notice I'm walking faster during my routine errands, instead of just plodding along.

I have run keeper and when I had the iPhone 3G it always crashed. I have a 4s now but I've only use the app once, didn't have any issues though.

Did it shut off when your phone went to sleep?

Maybe it was when it went to sleep. I'm not sure! I had in a pocket.

Did 3 workouts last night. C25K week 3/day 2, Galloway and the Diamond Head, HI trail on my treadmill.

Diamond Head went better than I expected, it was my last workout but I didn't have to stop. Usually I have to stop at least twice, this time I just slowed down twice. I was happy, especially after the other 2 work outs, they were horrible! I could not get my brain to work with my feet. Legs felt ok, a little shin pain from mile 2 to mile 3, that seems to be my standard MO. My heart and lungs felt good, better than they have in a long time. I seemed to make improvements on my breathing technique in the last week.
But my head just wasn't in it. Don't know why, I had a good day, ate well, hydrated, etc. but all these negative comments kept creeping in, I kept getting distracted, etc.
anyone else have a day like that?
I just wish I could have a day where my head, my lungs and my legs are on the same page.

Today was kind of like that for me. It was cold and I couldn't get my muscles warmed up, I was tired and not really excited to be running. The best part was...I did it anyway. I was even 53 seconds faster than yesterday! I had tons of excuses to quit, but I kept going. That is huge for me.

Also? So impressive that you did 3 workouts today! Good for you!

I know what you mean about your lungs and legs. When I first started my lungs couldn't keep up. Now it's my legs getting tired or my toes.

I love that I don't get winded after the first 90 seconds like when I began. My legs get tired after running about five minutes, then it's more my brain pushing my legs to lengthen my stride or distribute the impact evenly. I prefer leg discomfort to feeling like I can't breathe fast enough.

Three workouts is great!! But I do know what you mean...some days I am physically fine and mentally just not there, and other days I am mentally pumped and my body just does not agree. I am on W9D1 today and I am so excited for this run, but my body is a little tired, so here's hoping it goes well. I don't think this cold is helping.

Don't you love when you can go father than the day before, even when it feels like you are not going to make it. Good for you for not giving up!

Me too! And I agree - I worry more about trying to breath properly than anything else.

It's a great feeling, isn't it?

I turned off the auto-lock on my phone and haven't had problems since. Maybe try that.

Anyway, congrats on the 53 second shave!! That's awesome!

I agree, I usually get leg pain between miles 2 and 3, but if I can power through, I know my legs will loosen back up. The breathing on the other hand freaks me out!

Good luck today!!!

I need to run at some point today, but we'll see if it happens. Got lots to do, and today was the first day 3 of the 4 kids have had school since Thursday. The HS is still closed.

I just wanted to introduce myself. I have just recently restarted C25k again. I'm going to do week 3, day 3 today. I completed the program once about 15 months ago, signed up for a 5k, completed it with some walking. I did another 5k about 6 months with less walking, but since then I've slacked off and needed to start from scratch again. I hope this time I'll be comfortable doing a 5k by the spring and then keep signing up for one each month to keep motivated.
I like reading about everyone's progress and some of the common struggles. You are all inspiring me to stop making excuses and get to it! Thank you!

I've been slacking again, but plan to re-do W2D1 tonight. I did have a small victory last week. I did my run on Tuesday and on Wednesday a co-worker dragged me to Zumba. I have never been able to keep up so well in Zumba class cardio-wise. It was so encouraging.

Keep it up everyone! This thread is so great for motiviation.

I just got back on track.

To keep myself on track I have signed up for a 5k next month and told everyone I am doing it. No backing out now.

I'm having a lot of trouble with week 2. Week 1 was fine and I did w2d1 ok, but since then I haven't been able to finish another week 2 workout. My diet hasn't been the best this past week, so maybe that's part of the problem. I think I'm going to repeat week 1 this week and see how it goes. I may have just needed to stick with week 1 a little longer and not advance to week 2 right away since I hadn't really done any exercise for several months before I started this!

For me, I had to slow down my pace a lot on W2D1 and that really helped me. It felt weird to run that slow, but it helped me finish, so to me that's a good sign.
