    I've started it. I'm just repeating week1 as I don't have the time to fit 3 days of it in my exercise routine, and its very very hard on your knees if you are significantly overweight x

    its just a running plan, starts off with interval walk jog, then graduates up week after week til you can run 5k.

    theres lots of info in the exercise board x

    Ooohh that sounds good, Ive actually seen an app for this for smart phones that guides you through it but I wasnt sure whether to do it cos Ive never done running before (apart from forced participation at school)!
    Id need to invest in a good pair of running shoes first I think so will have to wait until pay day me thinks!!! :)
    There was also a whole section on it in the WW magazine a couple of months ago too!

    I've downloaded the app and printed out the guide from the website but have yet to start. I did all this weeks ago, but the thought of people seeing me hauling myself around the pavements is quite an obstacle to overcome!

    Same with me Sassia! I'd be really up for this but running in public is really not my cup of tea haha.

    A friend suggested we do c25k running in a circle in her very small garden/patio for 20 mins a time. I pointed out losing weight via motion sickness was not the point of running!

    Can anyone that's done/is doing this recommend an iPhone app, please?

    There's a few in the app store but they're all pay for and don't want to end up with a dud. I'd like one that I can play music over the top of but other than that something easy to use

    Hi there,

    I'm using the iPhone ap C25K (couch to 5k), on wk 3 and really enjoying it. I'm not anyway fit, but happy to be finally doing something about it! With this ap, you can listen to music in between instructions. I'd def recommend it.

    Best of luck!!
