I made up my own program after finishing OHR. I'm adding one day a week, starting with walking and eventually working up to a 30-min run.

After that I want to work on speed.

Another thing that helps me is varying my route sometimes (not helpful on a treadmill, but it will be spring soon!) and listening to something different (music or podcast).

I recommend the One Hour Runner program after the C25k. It'll take you up to running 10k, and gives you a continued structure.

What is a good program to do after the C25K? I am about to start week 6 of C25K and I really feel that I need a plan in place. I don't want to come to end of the program and not know where to go. I like having a set routine and checking it each day off as I go. Just looking for some ideas... thanks.

I totally agree! As soon as I finished OHR I had another plan put together to get me ready for the next goal/event. Training for an event keeps me focused on what I am working towards. But this could work just as well if you set a distance goal for yourself like, I want to be able to run 10 miles or I want to be able to run a 11 minute mile pace for over one hour. The sky is the limit really!

Have you considered Hal Hidgon's Spring Training? I am wrapping up Week 10 this week of One Hour Runner and moving on to that. Depending where you are as far as speed, you can dive in a few weeks along. It effectively adds 1 day a week to your run. If your mileage is already at the end of the beginner level, try the intermediate.

That program feels like a natural extension. You may also want to consider one of Coolrunning.com's free training programs and focus on training for a specific race.

Just a few thoughts. Without a program, I'd burn out, so I have the next 2-3 years worth of training already lined up, one program after another.

Ok, I am not an advanced runner by any means but I like the idea of increasing incline to increase your speed.

And Pal, I sometimes feel burnt out like I am a hampster on a wheel when I am on the tready...and I question what the hell am I doing? I am not even going anywhere! I would say to remember how running makes you look and most of all how it makes you feel. That is what helps me...oh and pals like you that tell me how much I have lost since I started to run again. ;)

Oky doke...
I am officially at week ten of the One Hour runner thing.. yepster.. Gonna be 30-40-60 from here on in.. uh, just typing that gives me a shudder! ahahha!

I am program-y type person... not much of a wing-it as you go along... so I'll need help in this dept.. yep groupies.. I need help (but you probably already figured that out.. ahahhahahahhah)...

What do you seasoned runners do to avoid BURN OUT? To sorta kinda keep it new, fresh? hmmm... try to finagle your PR? Mix up the incline? Run in different locations?

Please share your tips.....
and forget running backwards and dancing around on the treadyville ok? not quite at that stage! ahahahahhah!

Thanks!
