Re: Couch to 5K (C25K) Running

I finally updated my Zombie run app, and the new interface in Season 2 is considerably better. Not a fan of the new base building mechanics, but then I just started and haven't seen a lot of it yet. Now, to put my music back on...!

Re: Couch to 5K (C25K) Running

Finally beginning to get somewhere with this.  My knee has been fine after my past 4 runs!  I'm way behind schedule though - only on week 4 because until the past couple of weeks I had a downtime of 2 to 3 weeks between each run for my knee to recover

 

Also week 4 was hard.  It almost doubled the amount of running I had to do.

Re: Couch to 5K (C25K) Running

Injuries have made this a slow process but I just broke 2 miles non-stop!  Not bad as my previous best non-stop distance before retiring from injury was 1.4 miles.  Got some Kinesio tape this week.  Apparently it works wonders!

Re: Couch to 5K (C25K) Running

Yeah I have an android app sorting out all the timings.  The only problem with that is that for the sake of my phone I can't go out in the rain!  And it rains a lot here.  I need to get one of those waterproof Xperia Z's

Re: Couch to 5K (C25K) Running

I'll have to try one of those apps that you guys listed. Maybe that would help motivate me. Water proof does sound like the way to go Smiley Happy

Re: Couch to 5K (C25K) Running

It does help motivate a lot.  Every year prior to this I'd attempted to take up running just by going as far as I could before giving up and repeating a few days later and never got anywhere.

With this, whilst injury prevented me runnign as frequently as the app suggests, I have completed every run it has set me in order.

 

When I'm running as far as I can off my own back it's too easy to just give up when it becomes uncomfortable.  With the app, it's easier to keep going past that point knowing I only have 2 more minutes or whatever to go.

A rain coat may be cheaper than an Xperia? Smiley Happy

 

And yes, the app does help. So does running with someone, if you can find someone who is at your level and is comfortable running at the same pace you are. Or you can take a dog, for some reason they seem to think that going for a run with their human is the best thing ever since the invention of peanut butter. Maybe even better than peanutbutter...?

Re: Couch to 5K (C25K) Running

I borrow a friends dog sometimes but he can't pace himself.  For the first half of our trip out he's dragging me everything.  For the second half I'm dragging him along cause he's worn out.

Re: Couch to 5K (C25K) Running

My dog used to do when I first started taking her with me. She'd get realy excited and try to sprint at full speed the moment I went from walking to jogging. Now she's figured out the routine and tries to stick with my pace through the run. It only took a dozen or so attempts for her to get there though... Smiley Happy
