Sounds good to me! Jillian is welcome to stay home.

I was/am using the dvd as a cross-training thing since I've had to put my gym membership on hold for two months. (as a substitute teacher I don't get a paycheck again until the last day of October.) But I'm not coming straight off the couch. I just have to restart C25k every time I get distracted by something shiny because my shins start hating me again. vicious cycle.

Anyway, thanks!

I agree, pick a plan and stick to it. Those plans are not complementary. Either do C25K OR do 30DS. Don't try to do both at once.

Starting a DVD based 30 day fitness plan within 30 days of a holiday probably wasn't a good move. :)

Put 30DS away until after the holiday and after you've completed your first 5k.

I wouldn't do the 30-day-shred on vacation. Personally I would just bring running shoes and other running accessories and do bodyweight exercises for strength. You can find lots of options on the SP website. I really don't think it's worth lugging around the weights to do Jillian. Plus you said it aggravates shin splints, which is also what I found when doing her videos, and it can also cause other injuries (it did me), why risk something like that while doing C25k??

I'm trying to decide what to pack in my carry on luggage. I have been doing C25k and just started week 5. I'm pretty sure running shoes are going in the suitcase. But I've also just started Jillian's 30 Day Shred. Now, I haven't been able to do it every day because it aggravates my shin splints and I want to be able to continue running.

Do I throw the dvd and the weights in there too? It would also mean more work out pants, etc. I still need room for clothes for a wedding, family reunion, and regular clothes.
