SO>>> I started the Couch To 5K program last week. I got an app for my phone that is awesome and also lets me play my own music while I'm running/walking. I've done 3 workouts, so I have officially completed the 1st week of the program! Woo Hoo!
I told JM my goal is to run the dam at Lake Murray (1.7 miles across) across and back by the end of the summer. I told him he won't know what to do with me and his response was, "I bet I will."
"You never know how strong you are until being strong is all you have left"
You can do it, but you really need to keep with it. H started it with me, but hasn't stuck with the program, so, he's still about passed out at 3 min of running. Make sure to stretch!
It will all be ok in the end. If it's not ok, it's not the end
Happily remarried to a wonderful man (Aussie). I think I found the right guy and the right finger this time.
I did C25K two summers ago, and I fell in love with running through the program. I'm so ready for school to finish so I have time to do more than study, work and breathe occasionally, I miss running!!
I've done week 2 day 2 and week 2 is haaaaaaaaaaaard. Week 3 is even scarier. I need to stop looking ahead.
From what I've read, most people repeat some weeks which is comforting to know
I just started again this week because the couch won during our New England winter. I am hoping to get a bit faster this time. The program seems really tough, but if I can do it, you can do it! Promise!
