Yes, I do the strength training as well. I quite like the workouts they have linked to the running program. The Lean Machine one if pretty good and No Gear Here is great since you don't need any equipment.

Do you do the strength training portions as well?

I need an easy strength training program I can toss into my workout routine, something that isn't uber involved and I can remember easily.

I was doing the C25K but got to the point where I couldn't move on to the next week no matter how hard I tried.
Right now I'm doing a running plan from the Women's Health website, basically to build you up to the point of running for a half hour straight. Here's the link www.womenshealthmag.com/fitness/weig

I'm on week 4 right now. I'm going to repeat it next week so I get more comfortable running 8 minutes straight.

A half marathon, that's intense! How is your training going?

I sat down today worked out my weekly plan. If I can stick to it I'll be on week 6 by my first 5k in march. Not fantastic, but hopefully it'll be enough to let me run a good portion of my first one!

Hey I'd love to buddy up!

I've thought about doing couch to 5k for like a year but never fully talked myself into it...

Then in January I got way into the idea of it when I decided to join Team In Training! Over the next 4 months I will be training to run a half marathon to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!

13.1 miles....I definitely need a buddy...a few buddies!!!

Any runners in here? Anyone who looks longingly at those marathon posters and thinks 'I'll never do that'?

I could use a workout buddy and want to turn this thread into a C25K group. You don't have to be on the C25K plan, but working towards a running/working out goal.

Tonight is going to be Day 2 of the C25K program for me. This is a 3x a week 9 week program designed to get you off the couch and jogging a sustained 30 minutes by the end. It goes in spurts, starting off with Week 1 at:

5 min warm-up
20 minutes: alternating 60 seconds of jogging/90 seconds of walking
5 min cool-down

Anyone interested in this program can check out www.c25k.com/ . There is also a Smartphone app, C25K Lite (free) which will create an alarm system to keep you on track.
