KickingKilos, the actual speed that you walk or run isn't important. I don't know what the equivalent speed on the treadmill would be, since I run outside, but when I started, my walking pace was between 16 and 18 minutes per mile and my running pace was around 13 minutes per mile, which I think is something like 4.6 miles per hour.

I'm sorry I can't help with the treadmill question, I did my C25K all outside.

At the end of the program, I ran a 5k in 43:05. That was last August, and I didn't get up to being able to run a 5k in 30 minutes until May. :)

Well, I'm glad it's not just me. I had images of a big C25K graduation where everyone shot off and when the dust cleared, there was me shuffling along miles behind everyone!

Nope. I was 50+ minutes. The c25k really only trains you to run for 30 minutes. Your fitness going in has a huge impact on that.

I would also have been faster if I'd fit in the strength training and cross training I should have every week.

Hi Olivia, I'm sure you can get there. It might help if you had a group to run with so you can pace yourself.

As for me, no, I'm turning 57 next week, I weigh 244, it just isn't going to happen for me, and that's okay.

I tried pushing for time but now as long as I finish without walk breaks I don't worry about time. Finished the c25k and been running for 1 1/2 years and training for my first half in November . Since I only worry about mileage I enjoy it much better and even with a walk break every 8 min my average pace is 12-13 per mile. I don't think that's ad for a 53 , soon 54 yo. Keep running at any pace but just enjoy it.

Ok so I am on my 9th week, and I am only up to about 2 1/2 miles, my average minutes per mile is 13:26....I love this program, but honestly there is no way I could run a 10 minute mile, and I have talked to a lot of people who say the same thing. What I have been doing is just doing the best I can and for as long as I can, and I have to remember that the speed will come in time, and if it doesn't, I remember that 9 wks ago trying to do my first week made me physically ill, and to think that I can run for 30 minutes straight without stopping is a huge accomplishment and I am proud of where I am. I don't think it's about the time....from what I understand all that will come in time, we are running!! That is what is important, you will get there

For anyone who has completed C25K - could any of you actually run 5K in half an hour at the end of it?
My podcast said that was the point of C25K, but I'm 3 or 4 months on and I'm still taking over 35 minutes to do 5K. It was closer to 45 right after I finished the podcast. Is it just me?
