I completed the C25K only a week ago but I can't help worrying about how slow I'm running. I know it's early days and I'm still really thrilled at being able to run at all, particularly as week 1 and 2 were so hard but my average is pace is around 10.4 mins per km. I will try the C25K+ podcasts once I've got used to the 30 mins for a bit longer but I'm beginning to doubt if I'll ever be able to go faster as I get so out of breath when I try. I think that my calfs hurt more as well because I'm going slower than I should be. I spend most of the time whilst I'm running (I use that word very loosely!) worrying about how slow I'm going. there was an old chap and his dog walking back home with his morning paper keeping pace with me this morning!
