Lisa-- The socks may have something to do with it, but I have to say I still think your shoes are mostly to blame. I know that's not a good answer, since I think I would have been really annoyed if my second pair of shoes wasn't fit properly either! I do hope it gets straightened out for you.

Alana-- I was just wondering what I would do after C25K was over. I like working towards a goal, but I really don't have aspirations of running more than a 5K. Maybe I'll just try to improve my time. Hmm...

**
I ran w7d1 last night. Mapped it out after I finished and it looks like I'm running 11:30 miles, which I'm happy with. I knew better than to think I was running the 10:00 mile the program assumes! I do feel more and more confident that I could do a whole 5K. Which is a good thing-- my first one is on July 13!

I did C25K and it worked out great for me. I even ran my first 5K in May!
Lately I've been pretty lax with my running so I think I'm going to go back and repeat the last few weeks just to get the momentum going again.

Well I did W2D2 yesterday and it was great! I ran outside this time instead of on the treadmill. With the heat and humidity here in SW Florida it was really tough, but I did it. I will do two more days of W2 and then move on to W2. I am so delighted with this program I can hardly stand it!!

Thanks for the tips!! I should have clarified, I just got new running shoes and was fitted at our local running store. This is actually my second pair, because the first pair didn't feel right. The shoes are very comfortable on my runs, just that blister!! Is there any chance it's just breaking in these new shoes? I also got some running socks, but they're the no-show kind and was wondering if that had something to do with it, too?

Thanks again for the tips - I really appreciate it!

I just finished my first run. This is very doable and I feel great. The podcasts are the greatest things that have happened to my workouts in a long time.

LISAWARE:
Definitely sounds like shoes to me. I would recommend you go to a specialist running store and get fitted for some shoes that fit your feet and stride. It makes SO much difference, especially if you're just starting out. Oh, and if you're going, go in the evening when your feet have swollen up slightly, so you don't get them too tight.

AUSTINITE:
Great job on the "easy run". I find myself doing that at the gym too! Although with the summer here I've not run on a TM for a couple of months now - saying that, it must be getting pretty darn warm where you are!

Thanks Edana!

Lisa-- Let me join the chorus suggesting that you get new shoes! There's no reason to be getting blisters. Remember that your feet swell as you run, so the advice to get up a size (or half) from your regular is good. Try hitting the running store right after you run (they're used to sweat!)-- it'll make a difference.

Hey Lisa, I put up with blisters for a couple of weeks thinking that they were just part of the deal when you were this active. I had a new pair of Nike Shox that looked really neat, but apparently they weren't right for my feet. I tried all kinds of things, mostly finding out that vaseline will help prevent blisters, neosporin will help to heal them, and those Bandaids made for blisters are worth their expensive price tag! However, I finally went to a running store and was fitted for a pair of shoes and no more blisters! So, that is what I would recommend.

Lisa - did you have your shoes fitted properly? Running shoes should be a size or size and a half bigger than your regular shoes. Now that you have the blister, you can lessen the pain with Bandaid thingies made especially for blisters, or just soak a cotton ball with witch hazel and dab it on a few times a day. Don't remove the skin though or you'll have more trouble than you've got now.

Check out socks made especially for runners too - they wick moisture away from your feet and prevent blisters from ever starting.

I love reading these posts every morning! It's so encouraging to hear how people are doing. I just did W3D2 yesterday.

Does anyone have tips for blisters??? I have a normal heel blister that popped and was rubbing really bad during yesertday's run, but I also have one on my big toe!!

I finally finished week 7 today! Yay!! It was really tough this morning, but I think that's because the ozone is at Code Orange today. Apparently it's more difficult to breathe, which is what I was having a hard time doing. I'm pretty dang proud of myself for making it through the entire run, even though it was tough!

Here's my small accomplishment of the day:

I start week 7 (!!) tomorrow and so today was not a C25K day, but I still needed to get the cardio in and was short on time, so I decided to run. I intended to mostly do sprints/interval training, but after walking a few minutes to warm up, I decided I'd do "an easy mile" of running to warm up a little more. Never would I have ever said that 7 weeks ago! No way! I still won't claim running is my favorite activity in the whole world, but I'm so proud of being able to do this!

Congrats to everyone on their accomplishments! After finishing the C25K, I've been working on building up endurance for hills. I ran 2.5 miles with hills in 85 deg. heat. The best news for me is that after seeing me enjoy running so much, my fiance wants to start doing the C25K this week!

Autumn_wind, I am sooo proud of you. What a huge sense of accomplishment you must be feeling after completing your 5K...PLUS beating those guys...(Wouldn't you have loved to see the look on their faces?:-) I can't wait until I'm posting about my first 5K that I RAN! Good for you and keep up the pace toward your goals.

I did it! I ran my first 5k today! If anyone's interested I've got a picture on my sparkpage and the details in my blog. I'm so proud of myself!

I guess that means I've graduated from this thread to the 5k and 10k training tips thread... well, I guess that's a good thing!

Yay. W2D3............it seemed really hard today for some reason. Maybe because I ran at 9 am. Guess I need to be out there by 7 am before it feels too warm. I was looking at W3 and it's intimidating.

Well the two main things I am doing that are natural lung builders are a tonic that I make and a tincture that I make as well. The tonic is made with organic apple cider vinegar and mashed up in it is garlic, ginger, onion, horseradish and habanero peppers. This ferments for about 6 weeks and then the juices are pressed and I take about 2 Tbsp per day of the tonic. If I feel sick or getting a cold I increase the amount of the tonic and it usually kills whatever is starting within a day. The other tincture I make is Lobelia and Mullein. This I make in 100 proof vodka or everclear (but the everclear needs to be dilted to about 100 proof), but can be made with apple cider vinegar as well, just takes longer to sit to absorb the properties of the herb.

I have been studying natural healing for a few years now and these are the two things I have found work well to keep my asthma under control. Luckily I have a great doctor who encourages me as well.

One other thing I like to do is take the loose herbs...Lobelia, Mullein, Licorice Root and a small amount of Stevia leaf and make my own tea. This is a combination of great lung builders. I drink about one cup of tea per night. I use the small sized coffee filters to make tea bags...put the ingredients in the center then pull up the sides and tie it with a cotton string.

Could you share some of the natural remedies and other things you are doing to build lung capacity? I feel that is something I need to do, even though I don't have asthma...

Sounds like I'm at about the same place as you...just starting and very determined to do it! I love reading everyone's success stories & look forward to using this program that seems very effective.

Thanks Gettinifit. I will be thrilled for the day I am able to run for 30 minutes solid...but for now, I am delighted to be making these steps. I never thought I would ever run...being a severe asthmatic my entire life...but I decided that I was not going to let that stop me and am working with my doctor as well as several natural remedies to build my lung capacity at the same time as getting myself into running and have decided I will beat this asthma and WILL be a runner! My son deserves to have a mother who can do with him the thing he so enjoys. He is truly my inspiration! You guys are my motivation!!

Well I completed W2D1...but boy I never thought 90 seconds was quite that long!! By the last run I was okay and knew how long I had to run but those first few sets were rough! I will continue this through to the end of next week and do a total of 4 days on it. I think that will be good for me. The fact that I got all the way through without skipping any of the sets...I was VERY proud of myself. Yeah me!!

You guys are a true inspiration. Thanks for posting and talking about your progress. It really does help keep me motivated!

Hi, I'm new here. I just wanted to thank you guys because I'm learning so much.

I just started the C25K program today and hope to continue with it. I didn't know about the podcast this morning but will definitely try it for my next workout. I agree that the guy's voice is nice.

Hey Theladie! I'm so glad that you've started this program! It's a great idea to concentrate, at first, on distance, and then go back and work on your speed. The podcasts really are amazing, aren't they? I'm pretty sure that's the only reason I made my way through the first six weeks! I'm running for 25 minutes now, and could listen to regular music if I wanted, but I'm just so encouraged by that guy's voice!
Anyway, just wanted to say congratulations, and you can totally do this! :)

Hi everyone,

I am starting W2D1 today. I am probably going to do it for 4 days to finish up through next week. I try to do strength training on my days between the runs. I never imagined I would be running although I always wanted to. I really am feeling great and just LOVE the podcasts because they make the whole program so much easier than having to time everything. I don't have to think about it, I just have to listen to when I walk and slow down. For now I go at a snails pace, but figure as I get into better shape I will be able to increase my speed. I'm not worrying about it too much. I use a treadmill right now because it is stifling hot here in SW Florida this time of year, but once it cools down a bit I will go outside. There is this great half marathon here where I can do it as a 2 person relay so my son and I will do this one together. This will be in January so I should be well prepared for this by that time!

You are all doing great! Keep up the great work!

Good job everyone. I just want to tell you that it is possible to do this program. I started 10 weeks ago and am working on my 2nd week of running for 30 minutes. Still slow but gee, I'm running 30 minutes. This is a wonderful program, take your time, you can do this!

Hi everyone. Made myself do W2D2. The first two reps were hard. My legs were lead heavy tonight. Reps 3 and 4 weren't too bad. 5 felt good and I really had to work to get the sixth one in. But...I did it. I'm hoping to run in the CIBC Run For The Cure the end of September. It's......5k. LOL.

REBECCCA:
Don't worry about distance right now, just focus on getting your time up. The C25k program is a time-based program and makes you able to run for 30 minutes, which is about 5k (although see last months virtual 5ks). If you want to make up the distance then walk it out or elliptical I guess, but don't worry about it, you'll have plenty of time to get the distance up after you graduate!

CRAZYTRAINS:
For me walking pace on the TM was 6.5kph and running between 9.5 and 10kph (depending on duration). If you want to run 5k in half and hour then you're looking at 10kph on the TM, but it should be the pace that YOU consider running and no-one else. It doesn't matter if, say, you're only running at 8kph - it's running and that's what counts.

Congrats on restarting the C25k program, stick with it and good things will happen!

Ok, I started the couch 2 5k last year but after it got hot outside I stopped. I now have free gym membership at work, so I'm going to try again, and hopefully mixing it up between the treadmill and outside (since I can only use the gym Tues to Fri) and using the podcasts, I'll stick with it this time!!!

So my question is... how do I switch from walking to running on the treadmill? What settings should I use?

Hey, it happens all the time. We need a banner or something! I'm on W3D2. That means I'm doing the Couch to 5K beginner running program and that I'm on Week 3, Day 2.

You can look at the schedule here:

I planned doing W7D2 this morning, but opted for extra sleep instead. Just posting that here for accountability.

To all the rest of you working your way through this program, GREAT JOB! It's totally worth it, and totally doable. Taking it one day at a time is really the best advice. You'd be surprised how quickly your body is able to adapt!

emoticon Congrats on your progress! I'm so excited to read about it. I am at the beginning stages of walk 4 min, run 1, walk 1, run 1 and it is soooo hard to see ever being able to do what you are doing. Thanks for sharing your progress! Keep up the good work and please keep us posted on how you are doing.

hello everyone... I was looking for inspiration in the team and can't find my way around anymore! I guess I'll just have to get out of the door then emoticon
most people follow here plans from coolrunning, I went for runner's world c25k, it was the easiest I found - I'm horrible with numbers. I started sometime in april with running 1 minute, walking 2 and now I can run full 10 minutes. 2 days back I kept alternating 6 minutes of running and 1 walking for almost 50 minutes. I enjoy it a lot and do not feel overwhelmed. I know I'll run a full 5k this summer. Unthinkable 3 month back.
For anyone thinking about c25k, go for it guys! enjoy the ride and and the treats you get on the side (e.g. great endurance) emoticon

Irishgall, Run each week 1 day at a time and if you have to repeat a week it is okay. Go slow and pace yourself. Finish each run with a good walk.

Just take it one day at a time is my advice.
It works best for me if I change into my gym clothes before I leave work. That way I have no excuse for skipping a workout and I'm already changed.

Lybbe,
Thanks for getting this organized. I was confused when the change first happened. I hope we all get into the new habit of looking here.

W1D2 (road) - Better than Day 1, that's good.

Please post C25K related messages in this thread. Spark has given us new organizational tools - let's see if we can use them!
