    Couch to 5k challenge

    Is there a slimming world group attempting this yet? I've saw it on the cd forum but not slimming world! I'd live to give it ago but need support or I'll give in!!

    I'll send it as soon as I log on to my laptop I'm on my phone at the min! I'm actually starting the couch to 10k challenge cos I found the app for my phone and it starts off easier 30 secs jogging and 4 mins 30 walking repeated (more recovery time)

    Can I join you please? Nearly joined the CD one untill I realised that there were no SW people on it!! I downloaded the couch to 5k app today as I've signed up for Race for Life in May.
    I'm hoping and can persuade my skinny but possibly equally unfit friend to join me!

    Not sure I'll persuade her though and could do with a bit of fellow motivational spirit to keep me going!!! X


    Up and down for the past 3 years! Back for another go!

    I started the C25K back in November and was doing well until all the snow came ...... and I have not started it again since

    For motivation I have entered myself into a 10K run in June with a girl from work who does lots of running. I'm going to start again this weekend. I'm thinking 8 weeks to complete the 5K one and then another 8 weeks to build myself up to 10K.

    Good luck everyone and keep posting your progress on here. Also post if you are having a hard time getting your bum out the door and I'm sure one of us will give it a kick!!!!

    Well done xx What time did you go out and do it!?!

    I think you're better starting with the 5K one as the 10K ones that I looked at were a continuation for the people that had done the 5K or were fairly competant runners. I'm going to do my first run tonight when I take DS to football training. I'm going to start off on week two though, as I have done some running before and I have been exercising a lot in the last 2 weeks. I can always drop back if it is too much.

    I prefer running on my own though, as I can go at my pace and not worry about anyone else. I put my tunes on and I'm off

    That's when you know it's doing you some good, when you have to push just that little bit more.

    I won't be going out tonight as I've come home from work poorly and I'm now tucked up in bed :-(

    Hi all, I am doing C25K in preparation for a Race for Life in June.

    It's been slow going so far - did Week 1 twice, as I didn't feel up to moving on, and have now progressed to week 2.

    I have the NHS podcast - very good. Week 1 for me was 5 mins brisk walking, 8 X 1 min jogging, 1.30 walking and then another 5 mins walking. Week 2 is 5 mins walking, 6 x 1.30 jogging, 2 walking and another 5 mins walking to finish.

    I am a confirmed runnerphobe - I've always hated it and also suffer from a dodgy ankle and back, so I'm really quite proud of myself depsite only being on week 2!

    Still, onwards and upwards - good luck all!
