Wow! I can run all the way from my front door to the bathroom if I've had a lot of water that day, but I sure as heck couldn't run a mile! GO YOU!

I'm in the first week of the Couch to 5K program and while I dread lacing up my sneakers, I'm rather proud of myself afterwards. I also taking swimming lessons and intend on getting my bike out on Saturdays for a ride.

You may want to google the C25K program. It teaches you to gradually increase your running time to run a 5k. A terrific program and you can go at your own pace.
I'm very happy for you.


Thanks so much for suggesting that! I looked it up, realizing I'd been there to that website before! (lol!!) now, I'm going to attempt it and hopefully it works out. Thanks!!



@Princess: That's really awesome that you got into running that fast!! I haven't ran since high school so, we'll see how good I can do. lol! Keep up the fantastic work! You go girl!!

That is awesome! I have been thinking about running. Because of my family history I went to the heart doctor and had my self checked out and he said it all looks good. So I would really like to try this. I have never run before but you make me believe that I too can do this!! My weight loss has been so slow my thinking is this would help... and make me feel so much better.
Thank you for your post

Congrats! That's so awesome. I am also building up to a 5km. Right now I'm walking for one minute and jogging for 2 mins for 20 mins. I started with walking more and jogging less. I'm also training for a 5 km for next summer. Keep it up!
