I'm already up.... feeding the baby. It's gonna be a long day.
Hahaha oh I know! That's why I figured it would be perfectly okay here!

(Although I am wondering how okay Barry would be about him being crowned the pun Queen, rather than King... Baby-caused confusion?)

Well Don since you asked, I did text Barry a picture of my NEW running shoes on February 20th. You wanna see them too?



I did my first run today... I'll post about it in a bit.

I completed the C25K in Dec and ran the Christopher Martin 5k in Dec in New Haven. I have been slacking since then but just ran in the WPLR Shamrock 5k yesterday I won't tell you my pathetic time but I didn't walk once I was pretty bummed that I hadn't improved since Dec. but I am hoping that will motivate me to get better by the next one. April has tons of races, I am looking at doing a 4Miler on 4/15 followed by a 5k on 4/22.
AWESOME!!!! I heard about the race a little too late. Since I have not run in a while, I thought I'd kill myself if I tried to run it. It was a beautiful day yesterday too!

Quote:
My coworker did the full Marathon in Jan and he told me about a half Marathon in New Haven that takes place in Sept. Apparently the course is nice and flat, so I am considering training for it. I am just trying to convince my friend that has been doing the 5ks with me that she needs to train too. She hasn't come around yet.
Hummm. I don't see a 1/2 in New Haven? Check out the list HERE

Quote:
My friend was mentioning doing a 5k somewhere near Waterbury in April, but I can't remember where. Maybe I'll run into you one day.
There is a 5K in Waterbury on April 14th. I am thinking of signing up for that one. There is also a 5k & 1/2 marathon in Cheshire on April 29th. I might sign up to run the 5k there too. I need to get out and running!!!!

sounds like a good plan Tim!! I wish you BOTH good luck! what a great motivator to run against your nemesis! (Hey, where's Perry?)
Just think... I brought it up to him and he agreed! My plan is working perfectly!

Oh there you are Perry.

Looks like you have a running partner to train with!
I'm trying to talk Melody in to training to run in a 5k with me. There is NO WAY she would do a 1/2. I'm not even going there.

I would say fried cheese. Every time he sees a Dole whip from now on, he is going to know that he owes me Dole Whips for LIFE!!!!!

Hey Ryan!!!

We are glad you are here to tell us where we've gone wrong. We already know that this challenge was a mistake but there is no going back now!

I woke up this morning
Got myself a gun,
Mama always said I'd be
The Chosen One.



Ok, well I didn't get a gun but I did want to shoot myself. Today was day #1. The start of my training. I woke up, fed the baby, and got Juliana ready for school. I hopped on the scale to see where I was starting..



211. I must of lost some weight while I was sleeping. LOL I'm sure my weight fluctuates throughout the day but I wasn't feeling too bad about 211. After Juliana got on the bus I got dressed and headed to the gym. I hadn't been there in a while and my membership had run out. They weren't running any specials and for me to sign back up would have cost me close to 3X what I had previously paid.

So I left.

I felt like a failure.

I started driving home and I said to myself, 'Why don't I just run outside?'

I got home and started walking, then running, then walking, then running...

It was a little hard on the lungs in 28° weather but I did it!

I guess the hardest part is getting started and I overcame that. Now I need to try to follow the Couch to 5k schedule. So my next run will be Wednesday. I might even goto the track next time. I'm going to keep watching and join the gym when they run their next special. Hey, I know I'm far away from being able to run 13.2 miles but today was the first step towards accomplishing my goal!

Way to go on getting the first run out of the way! Those are the hardest!

I am currently doing run a mile walk a minute in my training........well if I am being honest I am actually doing, the hobble 14 feet to the kitchen, sit, rest, hobble back up the stairs to my room, (dumb knee surgery), but I started PT last week so I hope to be back to run a mile walk a minute in April or May! It has improved my 5K time dramatically! A marathon runner recommended it to me!

I never declared a team, but as a brand new runner last year (ran my first road race in August, a 7 mile uphill battle.....literally), I am gonna have to not chose a side. I was fortunate enough to meet the Hoyts (team Hoyt the father son wheelchair racers) the night before and it definitely inspired me to finish! If a 71 year old man can do an iron man challenge with his kid in a wheelchair I could run 7 miles!

Good luck boys!

There is a 5k that starts just about a mile or so from my house the week before the the CSSW Home Run and Walk that we're doing. I was thinking about doing both but we'll see how training goes.

You want a real eye opener? Find your house on Google Maps, then use the measure tool (the little ruler in the lower left hand part of the map. Start drawing a route around your neighborhood until you get to 13.1 miles. It's a lot farther than it sounds!

Thanks, and the pun was awesome, by the way!

Hey now - some may be just a bit south of awesome, but none dip into the "horrible" range.

I've always read that you need to be consistent when weighing yourself, and to do it right away in the morning after you do your morning business in the bathroom to get the most accurate result. I'll post mine tomorrow.

I have a hard time getting to the gym, so Bambi authorized use of some of our tax refund to get a treadmill. So much easier to motivate myself to go downstairs after putting the kids to bed than to drive to the gym and do it.

Good News Tim! It's only 13.1 miles! You're that much closer to being done!
Just kidding - great job on the start.

I saw the video of them doing that - amazing how much strength you can draw when you need to!

Somehow I totally missed this PTR. Can't have that! Although whatever you do, don't tell Mrs. Knowitall about it. I don't want her putting pressure on me to start this whole "running" thing.

But, Mark! If you run, you must run in the Disney 1/2 which is in Jan 2013 at the same time as the DISDad's Convention!

You don't need a new car.... just work on that biped commuter system.

For getting started. I did C25K last year to get ready for the Wine and Dine 5K. I really liked it. Did you buy the App? They also have Bridge to 10K once you finish C25K. Also, check out the Jeff Galloway 1/2 training programs(Run Disney has links) I think his programs are a little less harsh than the one you are looking at.

Oh and BTW, you can run 10 miles a day, but unless you change your eating habits you won't lose any weight. That means you can't eat bacon for breakfast every day Just sayin

I'm waiting to see the coarse maps, but I'm thinking of running the Wine and Dine 5K again this year. You might want to consider it. You'll get a sneak peak at what Disney runs are all about and it will definitely keep you motivated during the cold months that you will need to be training thru.

So how many miles do you run while doing the walk/run thing?

Hope your knee gets better soon so you can continue training.
