I wondered the same thing. (about what to do after graduating the c25k program)
I found an App for my android phone - 10k trainer by zen labs.(its free) That'll be my next adventure when I am finished with the c25k plan. Today was only week 4 day one so I have a little ways to go, but I'm looking forward to moving on. Good luck! =)

I finished the 9 weeks and I'm running with a friend who isn't able to go 10 minutes yet without walking; So week 10 I started over with week 6; I jog ahead of her and circle back during the walking part of the workout.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

SW2618, of course that's not bad! You are moving and you are losing weight! That's what matters. The beauty of the C25k program is that you can do it at your own pace. It's perfectly acceptable to repeat workouts or entire weeks. No one is going to judge you. You are doing this for yourself! So as long as you know you are doing your best and working your hardest, that's what matters! And you will get there eventually. Listen to your body, but be sure to push yourself.

You could try the Galloway method. It always involves walking breaks to ramp up your distances.

If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham

I loved that C25K got me moving, and I will be doing my 2nd one this weekend. My times are still terrible and I still don't like running. But I know I need to continue.

I really enjoyed C25K up until week 7 when it was just, " go jog 2.5 miles" and " go jog 2.75 miles" and" go jog 3 miles." I really don't want to.

So does anyone have an interval taining program that goes beyond C2K? I find it is easier to push myself when there is one more interval to get through.

Not to be a negative Nelly, but please, can anyone tell a non-runner how to keep training since I finished this goal?
