At this moment I prefer to use the treadmill at my local gym as I know I cant stop even I want too! Also i like to finish off with a 30 min swim and treat myself to a soak in the jacuzzi
im determined to get fit so good luck everyone....lets do this!!!!
I'm Nic and have just done my first 20 min run and now on week 6 run 2 woohoo! I'm badly out of shape and 4 stone overweight after 2 children in quick succession and could barely manage 30 secs running on week one, but haven't skipped a beat or repeated any runs so far.
I'm frankly amazed that this app could take me from that to this, posting every run on Facebook has been surprisingly motivational too as I've had a lot of support.
I just discovered these forums (so sorry for the late intro!) which I hope will be a further inspiration to keep at it, though having said that I'm loving it now and actually look forward to when the children are in bed and I can get on the treadmill.
Thanks for a really fantastic app as I think I might finally have changed my sedentary lifestyle for good
I am Mark from Bedford. I am 51 years old and about 2 stone overweight. I never EVER liked running bar the sprint distances when I was much younger.
I've just completed Week 4 Run 2 this morning in the rain!! It was very hard as I've found it is quite a jump from Week 3 to Week 4. I hit "the wall" several times. I stopped for a split second on the final run when Claire/Laura says "Fantastic .... now you've got another 30 seconds to go" !!
I started this with my 15 year old son but, as he's away for a few days, I have to get on with it. Not having him for company makes it a bit harder.
I love the challenge and I think I am rising to it ... can't think what Week 5 entails!
Anyway, keep it up, guys! And chat again soon!
I'm Sarah from West Lothian.
Just wanted to come on here and say Hi!
I have kind of stumbled across this app after thinking about trying to do something to up my exercise. Running has always been something that I have wanted to get into. I started to try and run about ten years ago and did complete a race for life but then let it go! So here I am, after completing my very first run and feeling very elated that I am back on the wagon.
Looking forward to the next one )
Last week I began a walking/power walking/light jogging routine. I'm power walking 2.5 miles with some light jogging in between. I was so sore Thursday and Friday i could barely move, but I walked and swam anyway.
My muscles have begun to forgive me and I am on fire! Tomorrow morning I will begin this c25k program. The reviews are excellent and I'm very encouraged and excited.
I'm ready! I wish the sun would hurry and rise.
I have just completed week 2- never thought I would do it but everyone is right on here .... It does get (slightly) easier as time goes on.
Keep coming back and letting us know how you get on
I'm Becky and I got this ap 2 years ago and never used it. Happy to report that I just did week 5 run 1 tonight. It was hard but I didn't give up. I'm finding it hard to keep motivated during the school holidays and it's easy to use the excuse that it's either too hot or raining (fab British weather). The main difficulty for me is managing to drag my 10 year old son out with me everytime I run, he'll sometimes ride his bike at the side of me. I've never been able to run but I can feel myself getting stronger everytime I go out, also the recovery time gets shorter and shorter. Not doing this to lose weight but everyone at work has noticed how my shape is changing which is a nice side effect good luck to everyone!
