This is my second attempt at C25K, last time I got as far as week 8 (on the treadmill) before stopping because of shin splints. This time I am running outdoors and have just competed week 6. Having said that I have also restarted week one to support my wife who wants to start running too and I have noticed how easy week 1 now feels which has really boosted my confidence. As for me, I feel the C25K program keeps you at the limit of your comfort zone to keep your progress moving forward.
