I'm on W3D3 of the C25K. First of all, I'm running it on a treadmill because the weather isn't great here in Michigan right now, and I'm hoping to get my pacing and into some sort of groove before moving outside. I've read that it's a good idea to take it slow, but I'm just not sure what that means. the past few runs I've actually added on more run at the end during the cool down and then took a few extra minutes to cool down. Today, I picked up the pace and increased incline a little more, but my calves were pretty tight and I had to back it off a little for the last two runs.
I'm a 50yo guy, about 30 lbs over where I'd like to be, and definitely not fit — somewhat active, but not fit. I woke up a few weeks ago and decided I want to get fit for the next 50 years of my life. So, C25K seemed like a good place to start.
I'm just curious what pace some of you are/were walking/running at this point. Not so much to match it, but just for comparison.
