Well my foot has been hurt for two weeks now. But it's starting to feel better. I hope to be back to Running next week. But if my foot hurts again, it will have to be looked at by the doctor.

OMG OMG OMG OMG I have to share. I ran/jogged 1/2 mile straight through. I did my W4D3 segment but wanted to add that extra mile so I was actually doing a 5K. I saw alot of improvement by slowing down some. So I was at the start and knew exactly where the 1/2 mile mark was. It took me 6min 33 sec but I made it 1/2 mile. I can not tell you how proud I am to be able to say that. I think today was the day I finally turned the corner. The only segment that was hard was my last 5 min seg because I was going head on into a 20mph wind that was 39 degrees. Burrr. I am so excited with myself though. It is gonna be a great day. I also hit the 15lb off mark today too!!!

Is this the same problem you were having? Hope it's better soon!

Just wanted to let everyone know another virtual 5K has been scheduled over on the events board. There is a link in my signature (click on the "luck of the iwish"). It's about a month from now when a lot of us will be almost finished with the program.

That is fantastic!!! About the breathing- sometimes you just have to remind yourself that you have been breathing all of your life and your not likely to forget how just because your moving faster. You could try the 3/2 method which matches your breathing to your steps. Three short inhales with 3 steps, two short exhales with 2 steps. So if you start the 3-inhales on the left foot and breathe in on each step then exhale for the next 2 steps, you will start your next 3 inhales on the right foot. It sounds complicated until you try it. I've read about that method in a few women's running books as a way to control breathing and it is also supposed to prevent side stitches. It worked for me but now my breathing rhythm has changed naturally and I tend to breath more deeply. Keep up the great work!!!!

Just finished W2D2. It was cold and flurrying, I had a harder time getting a full exhale today, wonder if that had something to do with it?

I think I am going to move up to W5D1 Friday. I think that is the day I might get stuck on for a while. 3 intervals of 5/3. I really think I can do it.
Wish me luck. I am gonna need it.

Going slower really helps me. But, I still did 2 miles in 30 minutes, so I think that was pretty good!
That's great! Keep it up! Any goals?

FANTASTIC!! I feel I'm getting closer too, but no way I could add onto the program after the second 5 minutes...at least for now. Keep it up!

W5D1 done!!! This is becoming addictive. I dont even want to skip days. I hope it doesnt mess me up but I really wanted to give it a go today. My breathing was great again. Something snapped yesterday in my mind or with my body. My breathing just regulated itself like ZOOMAMA said hers did. I also found the decrease in intervals way easier once again. 3- 5min segments was much easier than the 3/5 thing. I again added that half mile to the end and did it faster today in 5min 42 sec. So I had a total of 4 - 5min runs. I am still in shock really. I never thought I would come this far this fast. I am treating myself to one of those arm band timer things for my 1/2 mile goal being met. I am currently using my sons madagascar watch and using the seconds setting guess it was better than nothing.

Keep it up if I can do this anyone can. Believe me. I have 60 pounds more to loose and was a total couch potatoe.

I'm sure the cold air would really affect your breathing and lungs.

That's awesome, Liz! You definitely deserve to treat yourself to an arm band timer.

I did W4D2 today. It wasn't any easier than day 1, but I was able to complete the first three run intervals (3 min, 5 min, 3 min) and then did 3 minutes out of the last 5. I just set a goal in my head today and made my body follow through - even though it didn't want to. Saturday I'll try to get 4 out of the last 5 minutes and then repeat this week at least another day, maybe more.

I found that something changed on day 3 of week 4. My body kinda figured out how to handle it. I think if you keep at it this will happen for you too. When it does you will see what I mean. I get winded at the 2 min mark and then something changes and it is very noticable. I could probably go further but I dont want to injure myself I still have alot of extra weight on me. It is very exciting though to see such progress for all of us in such a short amount of time.

Anyone else have a love/hate relationship? It's like I love it when I'm done, hate it at some point during the run, and can't wait/dread the next one???

I hope that happens for me. I've had other friends tell me you just get to a point where running feels right. It happens at different times for everyone so I'm hopeful mine will come soon.
