Ok, posting my progress......

I did week 6 day 1, and the distance was increased now. Up to this point it was 2.25 miles and now it was 2.50, so I guess this is the time when the distance increases!

My knee is still sore, I took two motrin before and I am icing it now too.

How is everyone else doing????

Swim-mom, that's great progress you're making! I'll be watching you to get a sense of how the upcoming weeks might go. I hope your knees feel better.

Burberryplaid (great screen name): yeah! You can do it, and we'll be close to the same schedule, as I didn't start until mid-way through January.

As for me, tomorrow is my last day of W3. Wish me luck!

Hi everyone

Today is a rest day for me, my knees are screaming. It is not going to stop me, it just means that this week I am doing 3 days (that is what the program only calls for). I like doing 4 days, but this is the week my knees are saying NO!!!

Hope all is well, with everyone!

Keep moving forward, even if that means repeating a week. As long as you are moving that is all that matters!!

I am so glad to find this thread! I just started this week and have done the first two days. So far, it is going great! I was once VERY physcially fit...an aerobics instructor and physical trainer. And even then, I could NEVER run. I could do 3 step classes back to back, but ask me to run a mile and you might as well kill me right there on the spot.

Now it is 10 years, 3 kids, and 30 pounds later, and I am finally motivated to get my body back! I read abut the C25k program and thought...wow, this might actually be the thing that can get me to be a runner! So, the first two days were a breeze!

I should say, though, that I am running on a treadmill, which of course makes a difference. You can usually run longer and farther on a TM than on the road. But still, I am thrilled with what I have been able to do thus far!

Thanks so much for starting this thread!

I did Week 2, Day 2 of Marathoning for Mortals last night. I went out to dinner first and then went to exchange my running shoes, so I am proud of myself for actually coming home and doing it. Usually any disruption in my routine and I find an excuse not to.

Good luck everyone!

You are not alone!! I have 4 children + I am in grad school So I know first hand of the stress that comes along with children

Like you I lost sight of "ME" when my children came along. That is not a bad thing, but I think being a mom the last thing you think of is yourself.

I have been doing this too on my TM and I am on week 6. I am doing the distance NOT the time since the TM can track that.

Welcome and keep us posted!!

Dead last finish is better than did not finish, which greatly trumps did not start. W.I.S.H. (and my sister) gave me the courage to start!

I am doing W2D3 tomorrow. It is difficult for me, but I am doing it. My sister convinced me that I could do this, and we are doing the 5K at Disney in May. So I have no choice but to train for it! My biggest fear is that since I am so heavy (I weigh over 300 pounds), I won't be able to go fast enough to do the event in the time frame allotted. But all I can do is the best I can do - here's hoping that I drop some weight while I'm training and that makes it easier when I get to the race!

I am a college professor full time on top of the three kids (fortunately I work almost entirely online these days , so that makes working around the kids' schedules a breeze). Yeah, doin' the family-work-me time-juggle is a talent unto itself.

But yes, you hit it--I am finally starting to focus on ME for a little bit. And in turn, I will be a better wife and better mom...
