Try doing a cross training workout on one or more of the days that you are not running. I'm in week 9 and I've been trying to add at least one more cardio session (usually elliptical or kickboxing) and two days of strength training to my C25K program.

I think adding some sort of fitness additional to the C25K in those three off days will help keep you on track and may help you reach your goals faster!

Honestly, I just do them as I can...of course, I've been at this a while so it seems I'm still working on the scheduling of things. LOL

Now, I'm just waiting for my new shoes to come in (shin splints) but I've found that if I've missed days I'll do three days in a row and it doesn't seem to bother me too much. I know for very new runners this is supposed to be a "no no" but like I said, I've been at this awhile.

I just want to finish the darn thing now! (Week 3....again)

I used to run Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
But I signed up for a race which is on a Sunday so I want to get my body used to running early on Sundays, and then joined a running club that goes on Thursdays - now I run Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday

Hey guys. I'm on W2D1! Im just wondering how others are spliting there workouts. I'm doing y workouts on days I have to work and right now I'm working 4, 10 hour days... Tuesday- Friday. I workout Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I have thought about doing a Sat. workout but I'm worried the weekend will pass and the next thing I know I haven't completed the last day of the week. I do the workouts after work b/c I don't have to pick my kids up until 5:30 which gives me a little over and hour. Anyway I'm just wondering if the 3 days without a workout is such a good idea??? Would love to see how others are breaking down their days ! :) Thanks
