Congratulations! That is awesome!

I jumped in this morning and started c25k, right at the beginning, w1d1. At this point, I'm just thrilled I finished that! I've never been athletic in my life, I actually failed gym in 4th grade I'm looking forward to getting back out there on Wednesday and see how it goes.

Great job everyone! Ready for a book???

So after that grueling W4D1 on Saturday, we hopped in the car for a 5 hr dr. to my daughter's gymnastics meet on the other side of the state. When I got out, I could barely walk. Seriously! My muscles were soooo tight. Sunday morning, I got up, walked a few laps around the hotel just to get loose. Then I did some yoga poses, crunches and push ups. Still tight legs. Finally walked a mile on the treadmill just to be able to move. I really missed my tennis shoes, walking in Uggs on a treadmill wasn't fun.

Left the hotel, went to the meet, and SAT for about 6 hrs. DD was the all around champ in her level/age, vault champ, and 2nd on beam! Got back in the car at 7 for the 5 hr. ride home again, got in a little before 1. Up at 5, got ready, went to work. Still felt stiff all day.

Did my w4d2 today, and breathing wise, not a problem. My legs felt like concrete blocks, it was soooo hard just to lift them.... I am attributing it to a lack of sleep and lots of cramped riding time, and just pray I get loose before Wed. I may end up doing day 3 again Friday, just to work on it a bit more..

W7D3 in the books!! Moving on to week 8. I must say today is the first time I ran at night because I started my new job today. It was the most amazing run I have ever had. Perfect weather 62 crisp clear with a huge full moon on the horizon. I was in total zen mode and didnt even look at the time until I was 24min into my run. I wish they all were like that. Have a great evening everyone!

WONDERFUL!!!!!!!! I hope I can say that at some point in my running career! I am just hoping my legs don't feel like they weigh 200 pounds each Wednesday!

I did W4D1 today, and I was so nervous that I wouldn't be able to do it. The first time the 5 minute run came, I spent the first few minutes getting out of breath and puffing, but then everything seemed to calm down and it seemed much easier. I was actually enjoying the running rather than pushing through the pain. It felt great, and at the end of the session I was exhausted but I couldn't wipe the smile from my face! I was just so proud of myself for doing it. And now I don't need to worry before D2 and D3 because I know I've already done it once.

So glad it was easier than you thought! Something about that mental leap is exhillarating!

Sounds like everyone is doing well!

Sorry I haven't been around for a few days. I've just been feeling a bit discouraged. But, today I just attempted W5D3 and I'm proud to say I was able to complete the 20 minute run. I shocked myself.

It definitely wasn't easy and I'm glad it's over with. I think it'll give me a confidence boost.

I've also lost a couple more pounds and am now down 10 pounds since I started the program.

Yesterday I started week 8. Who would've thought that an overweight girl who could barely run 2 minutes 8 weeks ago could run for 28 minutes straight? Well- I DID IT!!! It was not easy and I wish I could find my zen while running, and maybe I will some day. I leave for WDW next week and I look forward to running around the POLY. If you see me there give me wave

Good to have you back. Just finished W6D1 and it was fairly easy. I think and hope that after doing the 20, we may be over the hump! I'm actually starting to feel like a runner instead of someone who chose suicide by treadmill

Keep up the good work everyone.
