    Re: Couch 2 5K challenge - buddies welcomed!

    Please may I join too? I've done the programme before a couple if years ago and was regularly running 5k before I pulled my hamstring and lost the plot. I keep trying to work my way through it again and am aiming to go out for week 6 run 2 tomorrow (again!).

    Would it be okay if I joined you? I know I'm not right at the beginning but the rate I'm going you'll all probably end up beating me to it!

    Well done everyone so far, it really does work you'll be so surprised at how well you do!

    Hooray!

    I did manage to do the 2nd run of week 6. Actually went okay, felt quite good even though I'd had a week off from twisting my ankle.

    Anyone else manage to get out this weekend?

    Hi all, thought i would pop on and join the challenge

    I am currently on week 2, day 3. Should be moving on to week 3 soon. I had friends that have done this and one of them is doing a 14k run in May and has asked me to sign up. So hopefully I can get my fitness to an optimum level

    good luck all. x

    14K? Phew! The thought makes me feel dizzy . Welcome Laura!

    Well done Carly and hope you're feeling better Thejoyofanonymity x

    I went out for W6R3 today - 'twas hard but I did it! I'm not going to win any races for speed (a bloke over took me walking his dog this morning, he did have a bit of a pace going but even so!...) but I made it round hoorah! I was supposed to do 2 1/4 miles today, but I'd be surprised ifdid, next week is all 25 minuters supposedly covering 2.5 miles, but I don't think that will happen either. I'm going purely for time.

    How is everyone else getting on?

    I think it took her a number of months to get there - but she did it

    I havent run for 5 days now. ..its just been too hot!!!!! (excuses excuses) - but its defeating the object if i run in 41 degree heat - i just cant get any speed and i feel lightheaded and sweat more than I can replenish.
    I so wish i had a treadmill for times like these!! anyway hopefully will cool down this week so ill try and go as much as i can

    keep it up guys x

    Wanna do C25K too and am aiming to do Race for Life (5k) in June so thought it'd be a good thing to aspire to!! I've downloaded the NHS podcasts but would really like one that I can play my own music through... I have an iPhone (or iPod) that I can use. Which is the best for what I am looking for? (also, cheaper the better tbh!) x

    Hey Bugsbunny2000!

    I'm afraid I don't really know much about the podcasts, I did start with one, but soon swapped to listening to my own music and using a sportswatch, you can print out the plan to follow. I didn't really like the countdowns, for some reason they bugged me!? Anyway I think there are a few different ones out there and if I remember right there is one that will play over your own music turning the sound down to speak to you (I might have just made that up ) worth a look anyway.

    It's a great programme, I'm sure you'd be ready for a race for life by summer, I know I would have been if I hadn't pulled my hamstring first time round.
