Ha, all this time I thought it was 5 miles. I will have to think about it. It all depends on my stupid back. I used to walk over 3 miles without blinking an eye in the past.

Thanks!

Hi guys! I haven't read through all the posts yet but I thought I'd say hello. I just started the C25K program. I just did w1d2 and it wasn't as hard as day one. I "ran" farther than last time and took longer for me to start breathing hard. I did have to stop running on the second to last set because I was going uphill. I want to be able to run to the top before I move to the next week. I'm pushing myself and trying to get in shape before our Disney trip in October. Good luck everyone!

Hey all! I can't believe the race is two weeks away. I am still on week 3 of the program. Ruh roh! I think I'll have to get up early this week and run. I already get up at 5am, so it looks like 4:30 a few days this week.

How is everyone else doing? Who else is going to the Princess 5k?

Wow, that is awesome. Congratulations!

I am about halfway through C25K, but I'm experiencing a minor setback this week. DS (15 months) picked up a virus and has been sick since Sunday, so I haven't run since Saturday ... and it's killing me!

I'll be up to W5D1 when I get back into it, and I'm hoping I haven't lost all of my endurance. Any tips?

How long will ho have been off? It is is more than a week I would repeat W4 and then go from there. But, that is just my opinion.

Um, did you just call me a ho? Kidding.

I don't know when I will be able to run again. DS is getting better every day, but he still isn't sleeping well (I run in the early morning). The last time I ran was Saturday.

Yeah...I can't type.

You should be fine to just pick up where you left off.

I haven't read the entire thread so I apologize in advance if someone has already talked about this:
I started the Couch25K program in January and had a relative smooth first 3 weeks. But At the start of week 4 I "hit the wall" so to speak. My averages had been pretty consistent 16 to 15 minutes per mile. When the prgram required me to run for 5 min, straight my average went way up to 18mm. I decided to redo week 3. I then talked to a friend that's doing the Jeff Galloway run/walk/run program and she recomended it to me.
I just finished my 2nd day with it. I walk 1 minute and run 1 minute. I did the entire 3.1 miles (5K) with an average of 13:37mm. And I'm doing the Royal Family 5K on Saturday and training for the Tower of Terror 10-miler.
I'm not saying that the c25k is not a good program just letting everyone know that there are other alternatives.
Keep up the great work everyone!!

Me too! C25K just progresses too fast for me. I did 1:1 run/walks today, and I not only felt good after my run, but I had my best time yet. I'm still slow as Christmas, but I'll only get faster, right?

With the Galloway program do your run/walk ratios increase? I honestly don't think I could walk fast enough to do that well on a 1:1 ratio. On the weekends I am trying to work on distance using a 2:1 ratio. I try to follow C25K for my other gym workouts, but can't seem to apply those intervals well when I'm running outside. I guess I'm kind of all over the place. I try to remind myself that the important thing is that i am still at it.

I just started today and already signed up for the 10 mile ToT. If I do not have a close goal I never would get started! I am hoping to get motivation and encouragement and maybe a kick in the pants if I slack! My husband and I are doing the ToT together and training for our 5ks before using the C25k.

I am loving this thread.

I started the C25K program at the beginning of Jan but feel off the bandwagon when life got too busy. I am sick today but I am starting again ASAP.
I am totally excited to run my first 5K sometime in 2012 with my eye on a Disney race sometime in the future.

I CAN DO THIS!!
