I know my lungs can do it , but my legs refuse to sync with them lol
I am also xcurlytwigx on Twitter but I don't tweet often and also random none running stuff - lots of cycling tweets - but feel free to follow
I'm not doing c25k , but my own version of 5- 10k I guess, I can run 5k in 31 mins, I want this sub 30 and my 10k sub 1 hour
am taking it easy as can feel it my knees and foot arches ! My leg muscles don't ache much but my shoulders do.

Wow what fab progress everyone is making. I've had a few delays with snow and work commitments but did my week 4 run 1 on the c25 app yesterday. Ridiculously pleased to have felt ok. Running again tomorrow. Im not too bothered about speed yet I think that will build as i get fitter and I dont want any silly injuries... my poor joints and undersused muscles need time to get used to this!

My motivation is still high - I am feeling very determined and get quite grumpy when snow and work get in the way. Even wondering about signing up for something to give me a goal but I'm still rather alarmed at the prospect so will get to 5k first to build my confidence and self-belief... im ignoring my inner doubts at the moment! Also Im doing a skydive for charity in March so that's challenge enough for now!

Good luck everyone. I look forward to hearing the next instalments! I will find those on twitter and follow!

How is everyone getting on? I've just finished week 5 and despite thinking I wouldn't be able to do day 3, I actually found it easier than day 2. I think I found my rhythm towards the end. And when the voice said "You are half way" I thought, wow, that was 10 minutes already?!? 5km seems achieveable now

Hi Newbie just jumping in here! good to meet you all

Iv'e been running for about 3 months now and finished a 5k programme last week (Zombies, Run 5k).

I still can't run the whole 5k distance without walk stops. I seem to have trouble with keeping a slow pace, I tend to run too fast and so need to take walk breaks and have tried paced music, smaller strides and all sorts. Anyone have any tips as I feel that any slower is a struggle as I would say that I "jog" rather than "run" (around 10kph)

Also would be keen to hear what people do once they finish the 5K. I am currently just trying to increase the length of time I can run for and have downloaded a couple of other structured plans from this site to work on.

Encouraging to think there are other people out there in the same situation. I actually drempt I was running a smooth pace last night and felt I could run on and on...shame I woke up! lol!
