Hang on! So my app WON'T have me running 25K in half an hour by March?
if it does i will deffo start following it
i want to get my 5k time under 30 mins - slowly does it - i get impatient and want quicker results
Curly - 5k in 30 minutes is a goal I can only aspire towards!! Well done you.
25k? Are you all mad?
Its on the last page, but who was asking about the GPS things?
Your ipod touch will be able to cope with the C25k apps. None of them (that I know of) use the GPS function on my phone. They just talk to you. Mine allows you to play your own music at the same time.
The alternative is to search for Robert Ullery Cool Runnings - which is 9 podcasts (just google it) and he talks to you while playing his music, Its not an app, but a series of tracks. I used this years ago with my old ipod classic which doesnt do 'apps'
My app is by Zen Labs and they also do a 10k and a half marathon one - so I will be moving onto those next!
Dom and I use Endomondo as well which runs in the background while I run. It logs your activity and speed and also your route, and you can review your history on the main website. I used it a few years ago before I got an iPhone and used to just plot my route on the map so you can see how far you have gone,.
Hi Soph - similar sitiuation to me, except my little man is 18 months. I did a 5 miler in 2009 (pre pregnancy) and came last but 1 at 58 minutes. Im hoping to do the same race this year and beat both milestones!
I also did the Great South Run last year with absolutely no training, because I told someone I would.... big mistake, but I did finish it in just over 2 hours and didnt die.
Welcome to our little group. 13 minutes sounds amazing! Im about to move onto week 4 of the couch to 5k running programme and Im dreading having to run for 5 monutes without stopping!
i will look in ipod touch apps , thanks for advice
the snow is delaying my running and my achey right foot so i went swimming this evening instead and am shattered , swimming is much harder for me for some reason
i love our parkrun, its deffo easier to run that with more effort than what i put in my own, as you have everyone else to keep up with , there were over 300 on the first 2 weeks in jan, last sat was about 150 but it had snowed loads and i guess people who normally bring their kids etc didn't come out - not very buggy friendly in snow
Hi all - how's everyone coping with the ice? I should be doing Day 2 of Week 3 today, but the combination of a sudden load of work in London (I live in Oxford) and icy pavements means I may have to wait until Saturday... it's too dark to run around the park before or after work, and too treacherous to risk running on the pavements.
Bit gutted about it - I'd been sticking religiously to the run day-rest day routine for seven runs... worried that now having five rest days between runs will set me back a bit.
Edited because Laptop reposted the same message again.....
Anyway, I feel for you with all that snow. The 'sunny' south got off lightly and its all but gone today - but it started again this evening (while I was out running in it)
About having a few extra days off. It doesnt seem to matter. 4 or 5 days is probably ok and you will be surprised at how easy you find the next run. Or at least that is my experience from the last 2 runs after a 4 day break. OH said the same.
I was supposed to be on Run 3 of week 3 today, and I came home from work, passed the baby to my hubby and gt changed. Stuck the iphone on and went out the door. Half way through the second run I thought 'this feels like a long 3 minutes' so I checked the phone and found I had moved on to week 4 (I was looking at it last night)
But I managed most of it (the second 5 minutes was a killer and I had to walk for about 90 seconds of it)
Anyway, dont stress about the weather. Its better to stay indoors than break your neck!
And I've managed to find out how to friend people on Endomondo - you just use the search function. Simple! You need a full name though so if anyone wants to buddy up with me then let me know and Ill give you my real name! Ive already found Dom!
Happy running! Im shattered - time for bed.
