I did it!!! I completed week 3 day 1 of C25k. I can't belive I jogged a full 3 min twice.
For Week 3 day 1 I did the following: 2 Repetitions of the following Jog 90 sec Walk 90 Jog 3 min Walk 3 mins
Can you tell how excited I am LOL!!!
I have to say though while walking my shins were good but as soon as I started to jogged with the first 4 steps my left shin hurt in impact. Then I started to focus on how I was jogging and slowed my pace to a crawl. I tried to remember and practice some of what I read around Chi Running so that I was placing my feet under me and making sure my mid sole of my feet made contact with the ground first. I also focused on totally letting from my knees to the tips of my toes loose . I found this to work . So maby I have fixed my body mechanics. Here hoping!!!!

I feel your pain NEWSWEETBREEZES! In a different way but trust me I feel it. I have exercise educed asthma so almost every time I run after my first set my chest start to tighten and really hurt! I have also let things get in my way I start week 2 but never finished it! I also want to be a runner of sorts and I want to help my asthma get better. But its sooooooo hard. I am starts a new challenge for myself this sunday its my Habit Changing Challenge. And on of the things I am challenging myself to do is to walk at least 30 mins a day. After those 30 days when it becomes habit instead of something I have to think twice about, I think I will try to incorporate some jogging into it. That way I am less likely to stray away because it would them be a habit! Well good luck to you!!!

I did complete Week 2 day 3 on Thursday March 22,2012 . Sore shins but they were healed up a bit after a . But I completed it before my daughter provincial Hockey tournament weekend. Where do I go from here I am asking myself as my shins are sore. So far I completed Week 1 DAy 1 Tuesday March 6, 2012 DAy 2 Thursday March 8, 2012 Day 3 Saturday March 10, 2012
Week 2 Day 1 Tuesday March 15, 2012 Day 2 Thursday March 17, 2012 Day 3 Saturday March 22, 2012
I now have gone 6 days since I finished Week 2. I missed work outs on Saturday March 24 and again on Tuesday March 27. I know I was gone to my daughter hockey tournament and I did bring my workout cloths but it was cold snowing and windy the whole weekend. On tuesday night after work was my children's concerts. ALso my shins were sore and I kept telling myself that these things got in the way to help me heal up. Between Week 1 and week 2 I missed work out on Tuesday march 13,2012 Sore shins and I got an adjustment on my inserts by pothuoydrist. Between March 17 and the 22nd I missed workout on Tuesday march 20. 2012. Sore shins and agin felt I had to take an extra day to heal up.
I have to say I have spent so much time of planing my goals and a calender set put right until I reach my ultimate goal of running a marathon. I have started my plan with the C2 5K for learning to run , Training and Running my first 5 K then my 10 k, then half marathon and then a marathon. It is frustrating that I am having set backs because to my very core I want to be a runner .
My shins and ankles are still sore. I want to run I do not want to let myself down . Learning to run is something that I want to do so bad . Where do I go from here? I just want to just do it!!!
Yay for running outside lol!!! I have kinda gotten away from my running program :( But I am getting back to it. I have been letting other things get in the way. But tomorrow on my regular running day I am going to pick it back up. :)
I Completed Week 2 Day 2. I iced my shins before I went for my workout and then iced afterwards and a couple of hours again after that. I seems like that the icing has really helped as I really do not have a whole lot of swelling. My shins are sore and so are my calves and ankles. It was very sore while jogging but when I alternated with walking as per Day to requires the sorriness would almost go away while walking. How do I know if the sorriness I feel is just because my mussels are building strength. How much soreness is normal I guess is what I am asking?
Also because I was supposed to do my second Week, Day 1 on Tuesday and ay 2 Thursday and Day 3 on saturday but due to soreness and having the adjustment done on my inserts I did not do Day 1 until Thursday and today I did Day 2 saturday . Will I do Week 2 Day 3 and when will I do it. Remember I am supposed to workout Tuesday Thursday and Saturday. I will Succeed !!!! Just need a little help along the way!!! Happy St Patrick'sDay everyone!!!

It was late when I got home yesterday but I did do Week 2 Day 1. I finished the whole workout. During the run /walk and the hurt /soreness changed over the course of the workout. Today I am very surprised but I am not as sore as I was the hour before I worked out yesterday. WEAIRD!! My shins are feeling only a little sore as scattered sharp pain but there is a marked difference in the reduction of the pain I felt. It hurts still hurts around my ankles where your leg attached to your food right around the whole area if have some swelling but not bad.
I am now mostly complaining about something totally different. My lower calves were hurting yesterday but today they are sore but not bad though . I little pain on left side of left knee.
So so far it looks promising that the adjustment on my Inserts may be working . Also after my workout yesterday I put ice on my shins and outside of my ankle . My massage therapist suggested icing right after my workout . He also suggested to ice before workout I will do that tomorrow. He said keeping the area cold keeps the body from rushing blood and fluids and chemicals to the area that is sore and as a result you keep the inflammation down and the swelling.
We will succeed !

So since i hurt myself Tuesday I waited to do w2d1 til yesterday... But let me tell you it was worth it! I am so happy i started w2 I was a little hesitant but I just slowed down my jogging pace and it helped a lot. I was able to go 2.1 mile in just a little over 25 mins :)
I am disappointed my shins are sore but hoping that my podiatrist will be able to adjust my inserts so I do not have pain. This is not the first time my shins hurt then have been nagging since I started back on January 2011 over a year ago when I first hurt them from doing to much exercise all the one time.
I have am appointment with her tomorrow and hoping I will start Week 2 Day 1 as it felt amazing that I completed Week 1.
I really want to be a Runner! I believe that I am a runner in my mind because if i was not a runner I surely would not be saying I want to Run!!! Now my body needs to catch up to me!
Just Doing It!

I went for a walk today for cross-training day but my leg shin is hurting .
I am hoping that I will be able to do my run on tuesday which is Week 2 day 1. I am also getting my inserts checked on wednesday as the pothridist said I needed an adjustment. Hear hoping I do not want to be disappointed this time.
