    Have you seen the app for the iphone and ipod touch? I just got it and it looks great.

    I did see it, Jenn. But I don’t work out with my iPhone so it wouldn’t be of much use to me. I use either my Zen player (if I want to watch a video during workouts) or my Nano (where all the podcasts are loaded).

    The lovely ladies over at fatchicksrunning have a lot of good information about c25k and their own experiences of going through it. one of them has already done a (walking) half marathon.

    The C25K worked really well for me. Then I hurt my knee and had to stop running and by the time it was healed I had gotten lazy & fallen out of the groove. I actually really miss it and this is inspiring me to do C25K again. I’m sort of whimpy though so I won’t be doing it until the weather warms up a bit more.

    Thanks for posting all the links. This sounds like a great way for me to ease back into jogging/walking the 5Ks I started with my brother last year.

    I LOVE C25K! I was always pretty sure I just wasn’t capable of running. I had always failed at it every time I tried in the past, but I started this back in November and finished it. Was doing just the time not the distance and I’m still working up my speed, but it’s coming along nicely. I’m planning on running my first 5k race this spring.

    Good luck to you!

    Love C25K–Glad you’re doing it! It’s a great way to work up to where you want to be. A friend of mine did it and she’s now training for a half marathon in the spring. I’m on week three and it’s going well–haven’t keeled over yet. 😉

    Love the podcasts you posted. It gets old looking at the clock/timer constantly.

    Jess! Long time no see.

    I don’t think I’ve had even started if I had to time myself with a stopwatch/clock. Too much work!

    Thanks for the links!

    I did it and got up to week 5 and then stopped. Maybe, I need to start again.
    I so want to be called a runner and do a 5k in 30 mins..

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
