I am halfway through the C25K program, but my endurance is a lot better than I anticipated and I am finding the workouts a little too easy. I am doing a 15 minute jog 10 minute walk on my off days - probably going to increase the jogging time starting on Monday. emoticon

My short term goal is to run a 5K.
Medium term is a triathalon - 5K run, 10K bike, 5K swim
Long term is to run a 10K and see what happens from there!

Wow! I thought this was the "Beginners Running Club"...yall blew me out of the water with your routines. I am at the tail end of the C25K, having trouble with running for more than 25 minutes.

I run Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I walk on other days and do strength and resistance training. Sunday is my day off.

I am currently working on training for a 10K next month...then I want to do a 1/2 (thanks, AMY!! LOL). Not sure when I'll start training for that yet, though. My goal is to run 3x a week. Not focusing on mileage right now...that will come with 1/2 marathon training! EEK!

My running is in between stages right now. I am trying for a 5k run that is under my 30 minute PR! I am registered for a 5k every Sat. in May (one is an 8k), 3 Sat.'s in June, and 3 Sat.'s in July! I WILL GET THERE! I run outside, but do speed and hills on my treadmill!
Now I am also getting mentally prepared to start training for a half marathon beginning Monday.
Let's see what occurs!

I am in week 6 of the 1 hour runner program. Then, I plan to work on the 10K training program - starting in July. So, right now my running is based on time. When I begin the 10K program, I will run based on distance.

I'm just returning to running and do it all outdoors. I'm doing the couch to 5k program three times a week. I walk 30 minutes on the other days.

I never measured my miles... it is all about time for me. If I ran 30 mins it was a great run for me. Now I run 1hr 30 mins at the same run and I am very happy. Good luck, hope I answered your question.

I just started running a few weeks ago. My routine is:
run at 4.7mph 10 mins
run at 4.8 mph 10 mins
run at 4.7 mph 10 mins

My goal: Run 3 miles at 5.2mph



Don't stop when you are tired, stop when the workout is done!
