Do you know how far you are running? And how do you measure/record? I'm not running on the road which I guess would be easier to work out.

Couch to 5K
I use the Endomondo app on my iPhone it's free and also has a website which tells you your best times and miles run in a month/year etc
I tend to run on roads to get an accurate measure. I make sure I run from somewhere specific and end at somewhere specific so I can find it on a map. I map it on on the Nike+ site but I think you can do the same with googlemaps or mapmyruns. Otherwise I have a Nike+ transmitter which I use with my ipod touch. It tends to be 10% out so 5k comes out as 5.5k on it. You really need GPS on your phone or a Garmin to be more accurate .
Not very according to my Garmin!
Same here, on week three and according to Mr Garmin I only manage about 2.4 miles in 30 minutes (and that's including the warm up and cool down)...oops!
I use GoodRunGuide.co.uk and/or walkjogrun.net which allow you to map out your routes both pretty good GRG £10 per year first trial month free, other one is free.
Have tried using my Ipod but it seems to be about 10% more in distance to other two even after adjustments have been made.
therunningbug.co.uk/trainin... Try this site, you can map out your run for free and you will get a good idea how far you run. It's quite good because you can see paths in your area that would be suitable for running.
You can use MapMy Run for free. I did it for my W3R2 and managed 2.94 kms including warmups and downs.
According to the markers on the trail that I use, I do about 2.2 miles per 30 minute session, and I just completed Wk4 R1 yesterday. Since I actually do the podcast again on the way back, I am doing 4.4 miles right now. However, distance and speed are not my priority as I am trying to build up my stamina. I will work on the other elements later on.
If you have smart phone, several free apps will tell you basic distance, and often calories. I use Allsport Gps which seems accurate.
