Hi gorgeous guys and gals!

As a lot of you are aware, I am a huge fan of the 30 day shred, but ive done it to death now, so needed something new to get me going and keep me focused on plan!

So Today i started the Couch to 5K running programme..

Week 1 is 3 runs, 5 minutes brisk walk warm up - 60 seconds running, 90 seconds brisk walking repeated and then a 5 min walking cool down...

I surprised myself actually, and managed it to the second, i cant wait for run number 2!

Didnt think i would be able to run after not so much as running for a bus in over 2 years, but the programme is perfect for chubbies to get off their bums and get out there!

If anyone would like to join me i would be absolutely over the moon!

I will keep track of my progress in here if no one minds, as found having a thread kept me sane through the shred!

Loads of love and hope some of you fancy donning your running trainers and spandex (kidding) xxxxx

I'm in lauren - i've been following the first 3 weeks worth of C25K since November and slowly building up but have missed a few weeks now so this will get me back in it. Will get my 3 in this week so we can hit next week together. I'm going to be doing the shred starting today as well !

I'll join you! (I am really surprised this came out of my mouth!!)

I have downloaded the C25k Lite android app, which will help me as it has a bell everytime you need to change speed etc. SO I won;t be able to cheat the timings.

I currently can't run at all - so hopefully I can do this!

It'd be a great addition to my power plate classes, as currently I'm only doing toning - no cardio.

Can't start until Sunday - but won't be far behind you!!

Hi...there's 2 android version too..light and pro. Light is free and pro has a few extra features like will link to Facebook etc. You can also down load podcasts to an mp3 from the C25k site that have a music backing track and tell you when to change pace.

i can highly recommend the run bra. shock absorber one. it's been through loads of tests and i find it really comfortable although a tiny bit tight but it's better tight cause it stops you from moving around. no rubbing or scratchy bits and well padded in places to stop chaffing. it's quite expensive but a good bra is worth its weight in gold when you are running, nothing worse than having boob pain, which i've had.

quite interesting to put on though. takes a bit of practise.

I use the shock absorbers too and they are fab!

The M&S sports bra is pretty good too.
