Still running! I'm doing the Nike Women's virtual 10k tomorrow. How's your calf?

Congrats on starting out! I was not a runner three months ago, but I finished the 5k program and am now using the Galloway 10k program. You can do it!

I am such a slacker. I have not run in 3 weeks. And I don't think I will have time this weekend. Yes, I know, I could probably make time, but ugh....

I have my first 5k in May, I really need to get going!

It is worse today. I am totally serious this time about resting these awful things. I am going to do yoga instead.

I wasn't a runner then either. I was of the "I'll only run when chased" philosophy. I am now on my last week of the Jeff Galloway 5K program and my first 5K is next weekend. I am planning to do a Disney half one day. If I can run, anyone can!

I'm signing up for my first 5k in July. The Color Run seems like a fun way to start out. My whole family is doing it, since they can walk too. My brother in law and my niece signed up first and thought it would be fun to join them.

Is it best to do Jeff Galloway program online? I have the book and could follow that too. I'll be starting today!

I use the iPhone app. He talks to you and tells you the intervals. I highly recommend his program.

Just polished off Week 6 with the 2.25 mile continuous run. I was one workout behind but after doing W5D3 over.... but I was able to fit a 4th workout in for the week to get me back on pace.


Starting to see results and am super excited for May to get here so I can do the EEC.

I wish I had an iPhone, but I have to wait awhile for that purchase. Oh we'll, I'll just get it from the book.

One step forward and 2 steps back.

Day before yesterday my knee really started acting up about 3/4 of the way through C25K but made it to the end. Usually I take a quick break and do galloway after, couldn't even make it 10 minutes. I rested the leg for the rest of the day but every time I took a step it was really painful. I put icy hot on and went to bed but didn't get much sleep because my knee would stiffen up and hurt.
Yesterday I was tired and it hurt going up the hill to the kids school but was much better. Fell asleep on the couch at 8, DS16 woke me up at 10 to shoo me off to bed and I was a lot better today.
I did C25K again today, same pattern Week4/Day 3 and while I had some small knee pain it wasn't bad.
It's in a really weird place too. It starts at the top of my knee cap and makes a crescent shape around the outside and stops at the bottom of my knee cap but then comes out in the back of my calf on the inside of the leg right below the knee bend. I can literally touch the exact exit point.
It is the oddest feeling.

Big night for me last night!

Was completing Week 7 with my 3rd 2.5 mile continuous run. Was on the treadmill and watching the Kentucky game... did my 2.5 miles..walked about 1/4 mile and realized the first half was almost over. Decided to finish out the 5K distance . All in all with walking factored in I kept a 15 minute mile pace.

I'm sorry you are having so much trouble! I have been fighting knee problems since I was about 12. As I've lost weight, it it mostly gone, but the running brings it back sometimes. You just have to listen to your body. Yes, you want to push yourself, but you should not be in excruciating pain and keep running. That won't do you any favors. Just be careful!

That's great! Good for you!

Rested the knee for a while but got back on the treadmill tonight. Knee pain is still there but not as bad. I did 5.5 miles in 83 minutes, furthest I've gone since I started running again, previous was 6 miles but it took a lot longer last time. I think I'll make a dr appt next week though just to be sure things are ok, hopefully it's just over use.

We have a race on the 30th for school, I think at this point I may just walk it, I don't know yet.
