Recommended Posts

How's everyone doing??!! I hope you haven't all given up, lol!

 

I just started week 5 today, 3-5 minute running block, it was tough, but doable, and I felt great afterwards.

 

I hope everyone's sticking with the plan!

Andi, that's awesome!! I totally gave up on this. Perhaps I'll start it up again after we get back from vacation next week. I really want to be healthier, but I hate actually doing anything physical.

Andi, great job! Yikes 25 minutes, I'm scared for the 20 minute run at the end of this week! That's not bad at all, just keep doing that one until you can run the whole thing, you can do it!

That's what I thought about the 5 minute blocks but it really is doable. When I'm on the treadmill I just have to avoid looking at the clock and concentrate on the music or the TV.

doug and i started this yesterday! ive been wanting to do it for a while but its so much more fun with a partner, so im glad doug decided to join me! even tho he is much more in shape than i am and runs faster, etc. towards the end i turned around and met back up with him so we could end together and not have to keep running to find each other!

 

i didnt read this whole thread, but did anyone else get the C25K app, the green one with the sguiggle runner man on the pic? LOVED IT!!!!! oh wow it helped so so so much! i actually cheered when the halfway audible alert sounded hahahaha :), and whenever it told me "ding ding ding, WALK" i yelled "woohoo!"

I downloaded podrunner from iTunes and it helped me find a rhythm and keep me going. I'm looking through the apps right now to figure out which one to get... It's a pain to keep track of the time on the treadmill!!

Good luck to all of us :)

How do you know what speed you should go at when you're supposed to run? Is it just the speed you feel comfortable at? and should it be a fast paced run or like a jogging pace that you feel like you could do comfortably for a long time?

 

I printed out the program and thought maybe it would give an idea of pace, but it doesn't and I suppose it's different for everyone, but was wondering everyone's thoughts on this.

I found these podcasts with some GREAT music and it's timed for the Couch to 5K program. It will start to count down over the music when it's time to switch it up.

Oh man! I miss this thread... I've been so busy tutoring and FI's son's baseball practices that I can't get to the gym enough. I've been on week 3 for sooo long! But luckily next week I can start going back since school is almost out!!

 

Anyone using the c25k app and nicole blum's podcast together? I'm so frustrated because I like seeing the time go for each run/walk and the music is awesome too but when I have them both going the app pauses the music for a few seconds and then all my timing is off!!

 

Suggestions?

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hi, I am getting married after one year. I have tons of planning to do and very little time. Planning a wedding can be difficult especially when there is less time. I have to do a lot of things on my own and at the same time work overtime to earn more money. Recently when I was hanging out with my close friends, I noticed that my friend who had crooked teeth like mine had perfect teeth now. I was surprised to see that I asked her that what did you do for a sudden change. She said that she tried Invisalign braces and had a change with her smile within a short time. I told about this to my bf and he also told me to give a try for it. I took an appointment with a dentist in Aurora. I don't know whether there will be a  change within a short time. What can you say on this? Am I taken a good decision?
    • Hi, I'm in a relationship with a guy who is in my college. He is planning to migrate from our area and he wants to marry me before he leaves. He is well planned for our marriage. He accompanied me for all the wedding shopping and was supporting me a lot. But there was an unexpected accident and I fell down hitting the floor. I was taken to the nearby clinic for getting the emergency dental care  from a clinic in Toronto. My front canine was lost after the accident and I think I need to get dentures before my wedding. Or according to your opinion what can be done other than dentures?
    • Hi all!  My daughter who's portrait, lifestyle, fashion, family photographer for over 5 years now is willing to expand into the wedding photography and videography. She's working really hard and I want to support her as much as I can. Does anyone could use a 2nd shooter in their wedding? She would deliver all digital photos with no cost. Just so she could start building up her portfolio. Who could say no to free high quality photos and video?? I can share her current porfolio if anyone is interested.
