Just ran my first 15 minutes without stopping, slowly adding the minutes on

I still can't find the motivation to get out if bed early to run ! I either have to do it straight from work or late at night. I prefer running before dinner but sometimes I run better 3 or 4 hours after a decent dinner. How does everyone else manage?

Treadmill ?

I rented one - had it for about 9 weeks now - and its made me want to buy one from argos! but I dont know the best makes either. Someone told me to go round local gyms and ask if their selling any old ones

I fell off the wagon for a while there but ran my first full ten minutes without breaking, so chuffed! Had to share! Slow progress is better than no progress.

How do you motivate yourself to get up and do it first thing - I can't bring myself to get out of bed !

Back from my holiday and went for my first run last night - was really worried a week off would affect me, but i've still got the running bug. With christmas coming up though my diet is out the window - theres already a continuous supply of cake in work

Hi, Does anyone know anywhere in Scotland - preferably near Glasgow/Stirling where I can actually try out treadmills or see them on display in a store/warehouse ?

I totally agree on calling it the half arsed shuffle! Trying to focus on endurance not speed. Its a 9 week hire, so I dread when it gets taken off of me in the new year. Ill be off the wagon next week though as I go on holiday for 4 days. I think youll be catching up with me!

Hi, Im on week 4 of the couch25k plan (well sort of) I hired a treadmill 4 weeks ago now and I've been going on it 3 times a week following this: http://www.c25k.com/c25k_treadmill.html 

When I say sort of, Im still rubbish at running, I can only go for five minutes at 4.7mph which is probably classed as jogging. Its really frustrating - but four weeks ago I couldnt do any of that. I'm about 5 8 and 11 1/2 stone. I really want to be able to run a 5k in about 30 minutes. My friend who runs is already up to speed and we are going a run together on sunday - I'll be holding her back though. It will be my first time outside too.  I thought i'd join this chat because it was the most recent post on couch25k and I'm also brand new to running Celeste.
