Back on board!! After kidlet injuries and 4 school start dates DD is finally off to pre-K so I get to run while everyone is in school.
I dropped all the kids off and booked straight over to the cross country course and did W1D1. It was so much easier then I thought it would be, stupid me trying to psych myself out of it.

The course was tough. The very first run was down a rocky downhill section so I think I'm going to reverse course Friday. But it was so peaceful in the woods, it was amazing!! I love autumn in New England so it was a great time for me to start.

DS14 and I have a goal of the Everest Challenge next summer. He had his first HS cross country meet yesterday and ran 3 miles in 26 minutes, his personal best so far. They train 6 days a week, so I have some catching up to do but I'll get there.

I should be on week three but I have decided to do week 2 again because I still have trouble with the full 90 second intervals, I know LAME!

O well at least I am still on it and I lost 4 pounds last week and I am actually enjoying it!:woohoo :

I did it! Week 9 day 3 today.

I was supposed to finish this weekend, but I life was too busy so I missed out. That was the first run I missed! This morning the weather was perfect, 59 and sunny, so nice I missed the prompt on my ipod for 1/2 way and didn't turn around. Ended up running a little extra and felt great.

On to Couch to 10k and training for the Princess 1/2!

Just stick with it and you will be successful.

I am rejoining! I finished this program once before but then for some reason fell off the wagon. I am back now and finished week 2 today. One issue is the gym has only 2 treadmills and 1 is broken so if I get there and it is in use I am SOL. Yes I know some people run outside but I don't like it and am not going to do it. Saturday I will start Week 3 again - week 2 was pretty simple this time around

Just heard about this program last night. I was talking to a friend at church who runs marathons...
My question to her was...IF I decide to run a 1/2 marathon next Sept for my birthday at Disneyland, WOULD I be able to do it if:
a-I have never run before
b- start by walking and training now.

She suggested the C25K program. I looked it up in the apps store for my iphone. There are a couple of different ones so I don't know which to pick. Any suggestions on which on is better?

I'm new to this thread....
I did buy the app and hope to start week one soon. I also purchased the Nike + thing but had to take it back as my touch ipod is first generation and it will not work on that. Plus you have to have Nike shoes....which I don't. No problem taking it back to my Apple store. (just in time too before the mall fire yesterday! Some idiot set it on fire and we don't know when it will reopen. So many lost jobs now.)

I just have to get out and start now.....

so what is w6d1 and w6d3 mean....sorry for not knowing....just call me newbie...
