Week 1 Run 2


Went for run 2 today along with my dog Bridget, in the park now and I couldn't get Week 1 to play, no sound coming from my earphones. Panic set in. No way was I going home to sort it. So I thought I would try Week 2, and guess what it played. So not wanting to forfeit day 2, I thought I would try Week 2 and managed it Yay!! When I got back I managed to sort out the podcast for Week one. Ooh I am not good with technology. I would like to do the strength and flexibility programme, anyone any advice about it.

Wondered if I should do it on alternate days to this programme or wait until hopefully I finish this C25k first. If anyone has done the two together I would welcome any tips and advice.

I'll make sure I test my podcast before and of Week one on Saturday.

These are perfect to do at the same time Barbara as they complement your running so go for it! Well done on getting the first run done.


I didn't do the strength and flex until after graduation and REALLY regret it. Do it now on your non-running days.


I think the 2 programmes compliment one another. I didn't do any strengthening exercises and think that's why I ended up injured and out of action for 2 months :(

Well done jumping in to W2 and managing - think I'd just carry on from there now


Well done- only one more run until week 1 is done!

I am doing run 3 week one on Sunday, I thought I would try the strength and Flex tomorrow. I am amazed at my energy levels, I was defo a couch potato before, only in the evening now !!
