Started C25K yesterday, and I am loving it. I might just get on the running machine for half an hour every day! Even though it's day 2 I decided to push myself, and I managed to keep a sustained effort going for 8 minutes. I've always wanted to get into running, and this seems like a great opportunity for my to do so. We have a competition at school every year, on sports day called the iron man, which is 7 miles of cycling and 3 miles of running. I hope that by starting my training now I can do well this year - maybe even win!!
A quick question - is it okay to skip on weeks - ie, I think that my fitness level is around week 3 to 4, and week 1 and two are far too easy. Can I skip on, and do like 5-7 minute runs interspersed with 1 minute walking breaks? I can't wait to graduate - and the feeling of being able to run for like 25 to 30 minutes seems great!!
