"...Forget about waiting for the perfect moment...."

Excuses are available to you in abundance, but what value are they? Forget the excuses. Forget about waiting for the perfect moment. Now is the time to get started.---Ralph Marston


  1. Do you use a stop watch when you do the C25K.

    I want to do the program but I have no time to run outdoors other then late night or 4am. I noticed you said you use a treadmill, how do you use it to help with the C25K

  2. One of my first few attempts at the C25K was with a stop watch on a HR monitor. I spent so much time monitoring it that one "attempt" week that I just wasn't feeling it! Another time I downloaded a podcast on my iPod Shuffle that would tell me when to run and when to walk. That lasted like a week or so. I liked it a lot better than having to pay attention to time myself but had to listen to the podcast guys music selection. I then got an iPod touch and since then have moved on to the iPhone. I downloaded the C25K app and I LOVE it! It does everything but wipe the sweat off of your forhead!
    I had to choose the treadmill option because I live in Southeast Alaska and didn't really feel like bearing the elements, especially as a new runner and I like the option of working out when it works for me. Hope this helps!
