So I started my wk on Saturday with a nice easy 4 miles. It was a wonderful run! This morning, I completed another 4 miles. I forgot to check the schedule, so I have no idea what I was supposed to do on day2. I woke up 30mins late and had to be out of the door immediately. I just ran another 4. Tomorrow, I'll get the hills done.

Okay... first day of hills, completed. They kicked my butt! I'm hoping that in a few weeks, I can make it to the top of the hill without slowing down 3/4 of the way up. It was a very windy run.

I just started my 10k training in earnest this week, I'm following the Hal Higdon novice plan, which is only 8 weeks compared to this ones 11 week but I like the look of this one so I might skip a couple weeks and combine the two plans to my looking. When I was first going through the C25k plan it was really helpful to have people to talk to as I went through it and keep myself encouraged. I'm a week or two behind you, but perhaps we can offer some encouragement for each other? My 10k looks to be a few weeks before yours, April 6th. Today I have an easy 2 mile run planned, probably on the treadmill since we're supposed to get hit with a snowstorm and it's freakin cold outside.

Nice to meet you intensebeet! I did C25K last summer alone. I expressed an interest in getting into excercise and a coworker sent me a link. He said I absolutely could do this and after reviewing the training plan, I gave it a shot. It wasn't that difficult. I think the first 4 wks were the most difficult in trying to stay consistent. This is a problem w/any new habit. I was real proud of myself when I ran my first 5K in Oct. Not too long after that, my knee began to bother me. It hurt really bad. Finally got it checked out to find out it is runner's knee. Now I run w/a brace and weight train. I was prescribed pain meds for the inflamation, but I have never used them. The pain has not been as intense as it had been before. I found that the more I move my knee, the better it begins to feel. Instead of taking time off to rest it, I started running regularly again after the holidays. I have to have a plan to tell me how far to run. <img alt="rolleyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif"><br><br><b>Good luck w/your 2 in the morning!</b> I have three on the schedule. That will end wk5 for me. Do come back. I thought I'd be the only one posting in these weekly threads, but figured, I'd get some good encouragement and/or good advice. Both keep me motivated. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
