Congrats!!!

Good luck on your 5K! Where in NC are you? I am in Raleigh-Durham.


I was super excited today... my 5K time at lunch was 36:39. I started at more like 50+ back in Jan. Both were on the treadmill and I have heard calibrations can be a bit off, but I will take it anyhow!

Thanks! I'm in Charlotte and am trying the Summer Breeze 5K on Saturday! I came in just under an hour on my first race...I'm hope to cut my time by at least a minute!

OMG!!! You guys are so AMAZING!!!

I'm so glad I found this thread!

I'm pooh-sized (5ft tall & 230lbs wide) and have decided to do the Princess 1/2 in 2011. You have made me feel like I CAN DO IT!! Thank you so much!

I'm starting my "training" today by going to get my new shoes. My podiatrist recommended a running store here in Orlando that fits the shoes to your feet (issues, etc) by doing the filming of you walking, so am looking forward to this. I went through this about 7 years ago (shoe shopping) in MD but can't find those shoes at all.

I have the Marathon for Mortals book, so hope to start reading that this weekend.

How did you do??



mishoe01, WELCOME!! Of course you can do it! I was 220 when I started training for the Princess 2010, and that was in January.

I would recommend starting by walking. It will get your body used to it.

I use the Galloway method, which is a run/walk program. I started at a walk 8 min, run 1 min, and am now (6 mos later) able to do run 3/walk 1.

Let us know how it goes!

Glad to have found this thread! I'm a " big chubby grammy" per my three year old grandaughter and for some reason (?) am interested in doing the 5K for the Princess in February. Am planning to google couch potato to 5K to see if it a planned program. Are there any others you might recommend. Thanks! Grammy

What an amazing thread! Well done all of you, i'm really chuffed to have found it

Am going to have a good read of your blogs over the coming days. I've changed the focus of my blog seeing i've suddenly developed this completely irrational but very intent desire to start fast walking and then jogging/running as my weight comes down.

Looking forward to sharing on this thread

Came over to the WISH board to try to find some inspiration for dieting. Glad I found this thread. I keep saying I am going to do the c25k and decided I would start today. I downloaded a podcast that plays music and tells you when to walk and run.

I'm going to look over the blogs posted in this thread. I need people to help motivate me.

Hi ladies, I've been terrified of stepping back into WISH to look around. I've started and stopped so many times so I'm ready to recommit again and I was looking for advice about C25K and I find this thread! I think I have found my new home! lol Anyway I've been undergoing a lifestyle change myself and have lost 8 pounds so far. I've got a long long way to go though.

I do have a blog too on 3FC. Here's the url:

I've been looking for a podcast-type thing too. Please share what you have found! I think that would be really helpful.
