Last summer I started the C25k program.
I really like the idea of the program,
but I really did not have great results using it.
I just could never get the distance.
I could never actually run the full 3.2 miles straight through.
I did complete my first 5k,
but I did not run the entire time.
Between frustration with my progress
and the knees of an 80 year old
I just kind of gave up on running in November.
I was still walking everyday
but i was not even attempting to run anymore.
This past April
I bought a new pair of running shoes
and decided to attempt running again.
I decided not to try the C25k program again.
Instead, I just started running.
I would run until I stopped
and then I would walk the rest of the distance.
So, far this method is working for me.
I am consistently running 1.5 miles everyday!
I am still have not hit the 3.2 mile mark yet;
but I feel like I am making better progress than I did last year.
Do any of you runners out there have any running tips for me?
