I have been a huge slacker this week. I can't even remember the last time I worked out or ran. I did a hike on wednesday, but that's about it. Time to pull on my exercise clothes and get back in the game. Thanks so much for this thread- just reading a few posts helps me find the motivation.

You all are awesome! I am having this old movie going through my head right now. Cool runnings. The mantra- Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme,( it's couch to 5k time). Cool running. I need some raggae jams now. I feel old! LOL

Week 5, day 1 of 5K training, plus 20 minutes on the elliptical! I averaged a 12.7 minute mile. This is my best so far! Believe me...if I can do this, you can too!

Completed week 5 yesterday. I have a mental road block to run for long periods. I keep remembering tv related things- Seinfeld running behind a car he was strapped to while the old man was yelling at him to keep running. I need something like that. No choice but to run or get eaten alive. I am so practical huh!


Do they have a temple run 5k? I bet I could get through that. Is anyone going to do Run for your lives? Looks fun to me. Zombies -aahhhh.

I am really enjoying the run/walk method on the Jeff Galloway app. I seem to be more willing to go all out if I know it's only for a few minutes, plus I think it will really help me build endurance.

DS16 did Run for your Lives last year, he loved it and has plans to do it again this year. It was cold and muddy though, so if you ever do it have throw away clothes, shoes and towels.
I got the mud out of the clothes but that was it.

Haven't run since the 11th. I slipped on the ice and tweaked my knee when I was trying to keep myself from going down. Managed to save myself from a pretty bad fall but it hurt for several days. The knee is better today but I did a lot of stairs today moving stuff in our museum prepping for a tea party this weekend so my legs are pretty sore.
I'm headed down now to do the treadmill but I think I'm going to take it slow and repeat last weeks workout.

Way to get back on there! Just be sure to give yourself plenty of rest and maybe pop an ibuprofin or two. I know it's always hard for me to tell if the pain is the normal "I'm out of shape, what do I expect" or something I really need to take care of. The general rule of thumb I've been told is if the pain goes away the next day, you're good to go. But huge kudos for the workout!

My body responds really well to this program too... I use it for my long runs and use C25K for the two weekly training runs.

Doing EEC on May 4th... just completed W4D1. That was quite the jump up in difficulty from the previous week. Yowza!

Anyone else started recently to get ready for EEC? How are you progressing?

I am! I actually started to run again on January 2nd this year! I'm progressing well, but then I don't plan on setting any speed records! Good luck with your training!

Thank you and same to you!

My goal is to not have to walk at any point. I don't care about my time on this one as it is my first race in almost two years. I simply want to have fun and re-establish myself back into running. The fact it helps me look better isn't a negative either.
