I started C25K on the 18th September initally mixing outdoor and treadmill but now exclusively treadmill due to daylight! whilst not sticking fully to the plan I managed my first treadmill 5k on the 5th of November but it took me 39 minutes to complete. I am 5ft 10" male and weight 235 lb I started running / jogging as a means to get fitter and to loose weight. Completing the 5k was a hugh buzz and even at my slow pace I was delighted to have completed the first target. I am still going to the gym and using the treadmill but lacking focus now - Any tips ? I also havent lost any weight since starting does anyone have any motivational stories to share having started the C25k as an obess unfit runningphobe. I am struggling with beathing. I have tried to do some speed intervals to improve and can run 2 mins at 12km/h and 1 minute intervals at 15km/h but my one and only 5k was around 8km/h to sustain the distance. Any support, tips really appreciated.
