Planning on starting C25k on Tuesday. Almost side lined myself when I slipped in the rain last night pre-work and busted my knee pretty good. But, other than being a little sore and scratched up, all is well. I got to work and they hooked me up with some great triple antibiotic ointment... an hour and a half and pounding headache, aching body later... but that's another story!<br><br>
Are you starting one of the programs?

I am doing the C25K, but I am trying to see if anyone is doing the program on this site instead.<br><br>
I am glad to hear you are doing fine after your fall. I don't watch much sports center, but I did hear that someone is predicting LSU and USC as being in the college championship game<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/headbang.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headbang">

I was trying to switch over from the other site, but with the site down for a few days I got a little sidetracked. Hopefully that hacking stuff is done now! I am still trudging along with the program and have set a few goals that are very lofty (for me anyway) I have a 5k at the end of Sept. The day of my last day of the C25k, so I have to finish! And I also have taken a bet from my sister to do a half marathon next spring (end of April). So many "get your but off the couch" posts will be necessary!

Hey guys.. sorry for the inconvenience of losing our programs. We'll have them back up shortly. Not only the excellent 5k programs that are written by the same person who contributed to the original C25K - but he's taking them to a new level: three distinct 5K training programs for varying level of expertise...<br><br><br>
Additionally, Jcumming and Merigayle will be contributing programs that will cover every distance up to an ultra (50K) program....<br><br>
We'll have them back up shortly in a new format.. So if you can be kind enough to give us a bit more time - we'll have them up in no time!<br><br><br>
Thanks<br><br><br>

I just printed out the beginners 10K program. It looks like just the ticket for me! I'll let you know how it goes! I just finished C25K 3 weeks ago and this will fit in well.

LSU fan and drunningman: Hows the C25K going?<br>
I am finishing wk 4 and am still glad for the walk breaks- mostly shin pain though. I stopped and rested for almost two weeks and it still is not gone- Only there when I am running. I am doing more stretching and that is starting to help.

The Starting Gate awaits. Or did you post it in the Run & Race Reports forum?

If you feel like it. Swimming, biking, walking, yoga etc are good cross-training. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Just don't kill yourself!<br><br>
Strength training is good, too. I think you might want to not overdo the lower body if you will be running again the next day.

Great work, DougJ, isn't it a real sense of achievement? Keep it up, and you'll be in double digits in no time.

I started the one-hour runner program a few weeks ago...i've tried it twice before, but never made it past the 38-minute mark (which is coming up again this sunday). I think this time i'll be able to go all the way though - i've been out in some truly hideous weather lately, and i'm not letting those runs go to waste!

Right now, I'm follow my doctor's rehab program. I hurt my foot, and she had me start running for 10 minutes, and I was allowed to increase it 2-3 minutes as long as I was pain-free.<br><br>
I did 26 minutes earlier this week!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana">
