Hi Lucinda, I've been using the app for the ipod and found that it would let me train for two days but when I tried to do the third day the counter says 'rest' and wouldn't let me start. As I'm new to this I thought that I ought to do what I was told and take a day off. I'm just starting week 4 and loving it!
Hi, I'm new to running and have been following the C25k program for nearly 4 weeks and enjoying it. I'm just finding my way around this website so if there is a thread about this elsewhere I do apologise. I'm looking to increase my fitness and loose weight with my new found running program and need a little advice. What sort of food should I be eating? There are so many protein products on the market ie shakes,choc bars and was wondering if these help in anyway or should I just stick to eating good healthy food ie fruit and veg. Any help/advice would be very much appreciated.
Hi Kris, I've just started too. I'm in week 3 of the couch to 5k program and really enjoying it. I have to agree with the remark above about feeling happier on the days that I do the program. I would like to loose weight too and I'm hoping that it will all come off when I can run 5k regulary. Everyone on here is so helpful so get going and enjoy!
Thanks again. I've just started training at my local athletics club as they have sessions for families which is ideal for me as I can take my son who is loving it. We do a variety of exercises for two hours twice a week which is helping with my core fitness and has made me realise how unfit I have become. So to help me reach my goal of 5k run next year I thought that in between these sessions I could use the treadmill but people have told me to stay away from treadmills. My thoughts are something is better than nothing. I really appreciate you all taking time to reply.
