Couch to 5k program

Also nice to know that it's a bit more of a workout, perhaps I will stick with the elliptical a little longer before moving outside. Or maybe I'll switch it up once I'm brave enough to run outside.

I went to hailey's practice and walked the track while she practiced, I'm thinking I probably did about 3 miles walking and then when I got home I did C25K outside before it got dark.
I was always so nervous about running outside, I don't know if it's being self conscious or just worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up and have to stop, but it really it so nice being outside and the program seemed so much easier, even when I was jogging up a hill, lol! Carly, I totally think you can do it outside, once you do it once and you see how good it feels, I think you'll be good!

Did you try it again last night Car??
You're doing great Jill!! I'm a little scared to get to week 3 but it seems like the trend is that the 1st of the new week is hard and then the next two are easier.... so we'll see!
I did day three of week one last night and felt GREAT! Don't get me wrong I still had moments of ugh! but overall it was way easier and I even felt like I wanted to do more. We did add one extra running interval and walked about 10 more minutes home after finishing. I'm exciting to start week 2.. hopefully either tomorrow night or Saturday but we'll see if the weather and my schedule cooperate!!

I'm also redoing week 3 of the push-ups b/c I had a really hard time at the end of the week. That squats are still really easy and the crunches are getting harder!
You guys are really doing awesome and for some reason I'm really motivated by the threads this time around. Usually by now, I'm getting bored with it and making excuses not to do it, but so far I've been good. If I skip a day, I make up for it later, so I'm being accountable which I don't know if that has ever happened before! And it's all thanks to all the other hard workers! So keep it up!

I won't lie. I cant do a single pushup without the cheating kind where my knees are on the floor. Sad but true. I really have no upper body stregnth.

I think all you girls are doing awesome, the other thing I found that really helped me was having a running partner. Someone that you can make plans with to run, who will push you to go out there even the days that you don't want to, and who will challenge your speed and distance. In canada we have running groups and clinics you can join. I used to run with my roommates in university, then Running Room clinic, etc...
