Couch to 5K Challenge

Hi Everyone!

A few of us have been chatting about this over on the PG so here is the start to the official Couch to 5K challenge. I thought it would be helpful to post your runs, thoughts, difficulties etc.

I am starting week 5 today, and have been running on M/W/F when possible, but sometimes add an extra rest day in there when needed. Either way, I've been sticking to my 3 runs per week come heck or high water Taking a peek at week 5, I am super nervous for my 20 minute run I need to do on Friday. I'm going to play it by ear, but I think I will need to repeat the first two workouts this week to get some extra stamina for that 20 minute haul.

So feel free to join in, whatever week you are on, and if you are considering doing this go for it! It's fun and I'm already running further than I ever thought possible. And better yet, there are some great free apps for your phone to track your progress. Good luck!

I did workout 3 of week 4 yesterday so rather than push it today i took the rest day and will run tomorrow. I really wanted to get on a M W F schedule this week but i think i can swing it next week. Id rather take the designated rest day than push it and hurt myself as i usually do
Im actually itching to run though, so thats a good thing i think!

Hello, Abby -- and others! I popped into this thread because I love reading C25K threads. They are always so inspiring. I get excited for those doing this for the first time, sending me on flashback journeys to when I had begun my own c25k program in 2008. One of the BEST things I've ever done for myself.

As for the daunting feeling of beginning Week 5, just wanna say that...

YES....YOU....CAN!

Although as an alumni I'm not officially in this challenge with you guys, I just wanted to stop in and encourage all of you. Inspiration can be a wonderful thing, and the mind is a powerful tool in accomplishing those goals that we don't think we are capable of. With that in mind, I'm pasting an entry from my own c25k journal (I saved every page of that challenge way back then on my laptop -- it was THAT important to me!) regarding when I made it through that BIG LEAP to Week 5.

Here goes...

Quote:
“Exercise is the chance to set free the yearning for motion that lies within each of us.
The powerful, almost addictive need we felt as children that made us run as fast as our legs would carry us.
That made us run just to see the grass blur,
to see if we could make the world spin a little faster.”

~ Horizon Fitness


August 2008--

"I ran my first 20 solid minutes tonight!


I began with 6 mins walk (I was singing to myself with my MP3 player and lost track of time), then began running.

Planned to run 5 mins, then recover for 3, run for 10-15, however long I could go, and then wing the rest of it.

I began running and at 10, then 12, then 13, then 16.....SHE'S STILL GOING, FOLKS!!!!!!!!!
I probably could have run beyond 20, but I recovered for the next 3 minutes, then ran another 6 minutes, then recovered the rest of the time with brisk walk, for a total of 39 minutes.
I'M PUMPED, PEOPLE!!!!!!

Yeah, good job! I know what you mean about having a "set" schedule but right now w/ husband deployed and my babies not in daycare it's impossible so I do what I can when I can.

C25K Week 5 day 1

5 min walk, then alternate 5 min run with 3 min walk for 3 reps, 5 min cooldown

I did it aaaand i was barely winded when i finished my last run!! So pumped i was hoping today would go like this bc ive been doing better with my 5 minute runs. Thursday will be a good test with the two 8 minute runs. Eek!!

Kaimi- good job!! I might have puked if i ate before running. I had lunch at noon and ran at five and still felt the food. Eek!!

Watchmeshrink- is that you in ur avi?? And that is a great idea to save ur thoughts on ur workouts. This thread will be great for that!

Abby, I ate an WW 8pt breakfast and I didn't have a snack but FULL. Next time, I will drink my shakeology.
Today, resting like I normally do.

Good job, keep it up! So proud of you!!

Abby, yes, that is me, taken this past fall at a figure competition. As for saving your c25k journal pages, yes, I would recommend doing that. I like being able to go back and read, reflect, etc., on my progress and apply it to other situations/experiences, and if you don't archive your journal pages, it's very difficult to dig them out from the boards later, if you can at all.

Keep up the good work. You're doing great!

kaimi - shakeology is my dinner tonight actually i had a buffalo chicken wrap for lunch today. chicken, lettuce, tomato, hot sauce and blue cheese, on a whole wheat wrap. im steering away from strict low carb now and trying to add in some wheat. it makes my tummy happier than just LC im trying to eat light today with just the shake and wrap bc i went a BIT overboard yesterday lol.

watch-me-shrink - that pic is amazing! you should be super proud of yourself!

i'll check in after my run tonight if i dont go flying off the back of my treadmill first!

C25K week 5 workout 2:

5 min walk, 8 min run, 5 min walk, 8 min run, 5 min walk
Walk at 3.1 mph and run at 5.1 mph, with a 1 min push to 6mph at the end

Well, there was no flying off any treadmills in my house i wasnt feeling stellar today to be honest tho. I think it was a combo of all the crap i ate yesterday and not eating enough pre run today. 2 min into my first run i felt weak but i finished the whole workout without stopping or easing up so i was proud of myself. The next workout is the daunting 20 min run on saturday. Eek!

omg, u are scaring me w/ these 8 min runs.
Good job!

12th - ran errands and came home my foot was hurting. Ibu. meds taken ....
13th - resting just in case ... and will resume tomorrow if OK. This sucks! I hate missing 2 or more days of working out because it's harder to get back into it. My oldest asked me how come I don't do turbofire anymore? I might have to go back to a boring Leslie Sansone DVD. I sure hope not!

kaimi i did it!!

Week 5 Workout 3.
5 min warm up @ 3mph, 20 min run @ 5 mph, 10 min cool down at 4mph-3mph for a total of 2.5 miles and 35 min.

i'm so proud of myself i know my blistering speed of a 12 min mile isnt amazing, but this is hands down the farthest i have ever run without stopping. at 5 min left i needed to hold onto the railing for a minute while a vicious cramp passed, but other than that i was okay! i did an extended cool down because i really wanted to hit 2.5 miles total. then i took the puppy out to play frisbee bc i surprisingly didnt feel like i was going to collapse this makes me feel so much better about the longer runs later on!

Wahoo, sooooo proud of you!!!

That's what I do, cool down just a bit longer.

I'm lagging behind each day my foot continues to hurt.

Another REST DAY for me!

Hopefully, tomorrow I will be able to run.

I was walking 20+ miles a week and now barely get in 2 miles w/o it hurting. I have no idea what is wrong. I haven't been to the doctor. Heel spurs, being overweight - at least someone told me that it could be the excess weight or plantar fasciitis.

My body is stubborn! I'm not one of those people that can just eat right and lose weight. I HAVe to exercise and eat right or the weight doesn't come off.

I'll keep resting and doing what I can.

I'm tempted to join this challenge, but I'm pretty sure I'll be the last man standing when you all go on to be real runners, and I'm doing Week 1 for the 16th week in a row.

Good luck

I had hamstring problems the last time i tried the C25K (6 months ago), finally went to the dr bc i thought i was lipomas that had formed. The Dr removed one, and my hamstring is still painful i dont want to have a second surgery so im going to go to a sports dr to see whats up. I wore a compression bandage yesterday so its not feeling as bad as i thought it would.
Is it possible you fractured something? I think you should get ur butt to the doctor as well missy!

I'm going to the doctor when we move this summer. The hospital is crap-OLA here and limited to staff and the facility is totally different that what we're used to. I'm thankful for the hospital but that's the problem w/ living overseas sometimes.

Jez, you still have time too catch up. I'm only on week 3. It will take me longer but I'm DETERMINED to finish. My app trainer will wait for me.

I felt like butt today but it was totally my fault. I stayed up way too late last night and drank too much as well so i kind of felt like i owed it to myself (punishment?) to get my butt on the treadmill today. I completed it, but it wasnt pretty!

Good job, drink lots of water!!!

No running for me. I spent most of the day out running errands and will resume tomorrow.

Lack of sleep here as well but i had NO drinks and it was ALL my babies.

It's 6:45pm and I'm going to bed..........

I did C25k preparing for bootcamp and it's a great program! GOOD LUCK to everyone doing the program..I wish for you good runs and walks and to finally hearing "cool down"..that's a great sound lol! I'm doing the half marathon one found on the iphone it's really great! You do it 6 days a week but it's worth it and I have nothing better to do with my time lol

Thanks for the support Jazills. Best of luck for your 1/2 marathon. I'm sure you will do just fine.

So, what's next after c25k?

kaimi look at you losing weight! mines been pretty stable but im hoping to clean it up a bit and lose a few pounds. i ran last night:

C25K Week 6 Day 2
5 minute warm up, 10 min run, 3 min walk, 10 min run, 5 min walk

I've been having some hamstring issues and it seems to be getting worse, so i havent tried pushing myself too much i walked at 3 mph, ran at 5.5, and then slowed it down to 5 mph for the second run. i also added an extra two minutes of 'rest' between my two runs for a total of 5 minutes. i scheduled a dr appt for my leg but they had no availability until the 8th :anoyed: so im thinking of looking elsewhere

After c25k i did ease into 10k which was pretty good as well. You should try it when you get done!

well, my butt is up for the last 2 days. TOM is approaching next week so we'll see.

good job on the workout and sorry to hear about your hamstring issues.

jazills, will try. i'm barely making it through this w/o foot pain. I'm thankful that I can workout. My body is stubborn. I have to do both in order to lose weight.
