Wow- how out of shape am I?
I'm ready to try again so I had a look at your suggestion- 8 week Rookie runner. I'll start today.
I go to WDW in 40 days but this will get me started. I'd love to lose 10# before I go and build up my fitness a little. Thanks for the link.
Awesome!! We'd love to have you join us!

Let us know how you make out today! I'm lying here in bed trying to convince myself to get to the gym so I can finish out week #5, but gosh darn it, I'm really fighting with myself right now...

Well, I confess. I never made it to the gym this weekend so haven't completed day #3 of week 5.

I am going to do week #5 again this week, starting with tonight.

Well we had a great weekend but I wasn't able to work in any time for the treadmill so I'll be repeating week 5 this week also. I'm going to start tonight and hopefully do day 1 of week 5. But I may only be able to get through a day of week 4. If that's the case I'll do an extra day over the weekend of week 5 so I can hopefully get to week 6 next week. After taking such a long weekend I'm afraid I won't be able to get through the first day of week 5. But I'm going to try to push through!

mullysisters welcome and good luck! I was really nervous about starting this but the first few weeks were easier than I thought and I am so out of shape and not a runner at all.

Mullysisters - did you get a chance to start the program? Please update us if you have!

KT - did you get a chance to treadmill last night? I went to track and finished day #3 (finally).

I think the next two times I go to the track I'm going to modify the program a bit - kind of like a transition into week #6 since it's such a big jump.

For the next two runs, I'm going to cut down to 1 minute walking time, but only do 5-6 reps (rather than the 8 required for week #6). Hoping to "ease" into week #6 by doing it this way.

What do you think?

That 1 minute walking time scares me! lol. I'm barely going to get my heart rate down before off I go again running.

I did a day of week 4 since it had been 4 days since my last treadmill day. Just to sort of warm up for the week, and it was tough. But I think its because I was pretty lazy over the weekend. And I also started back on a fairly strict diet yesterday so my body was fairly shocked I think.

Tonight I'm going to do day 1 of week 5, again. Then I was going to do days 2 and 3 on thur/sat and then hopefully on Sunday try a modified week 6. Maybe just do 5 sets with the 1 min walk. I can't imagine going all the way to 7 I'm going to have to work up to that I think. I was hoping that I could maybe add a set each day or something but we'll see. I don't know why I'm having such a hard time with this week 5. I hope tonight is better.

It sounds like you are doing well though, that's great!!

Yikes, I found out that strict dieting and running do NOT fare well together! You may want to eat a little more on your running days; otherwise you are going to have no energy and your legs will turn to jelly in the first rep, lol. Be careful.

Hate to break the news to you, but I really believe Week #6 is EIGHT reps, not 7, which is why I'm going to try and ease into it this week. There's NO WAY I can just jump into Week #6 after finishing Week #5 - it's such a big difference between the two. I think modifying/easing our way into it is the best way since we're both rookies at running (or any type of exercise for that matter, lol).

But who knows, maybe we'll surprise ourselves?

You're right, it is 8 set, I must have copied it over wrong. Wow, that's even scarier!!

Yea, I need to ease into that. Week 6 may take me a little extra time to complete. But that's okay, I'm not hung up on finishing this in a certain amount of time. I just want to finish it. I would LOVE to someday enjoy running and have a desire to do it. Maybe even run a 5K with DD or something. So far I only enjoy that I haven't quit. I don't actually enjoy the act of running.

I find I usually have quite a bit of energy on this plan. It focuses on protein and fruits and vegetables. I was letting myself snack too much and drinking sodas which I love but are so horrible and I think they actually make me feel more sluggish. I have no willpower at all so its all or nothing. This plan is boring in terms of choices but easy to follow because I eat the same things in rotation.

I think tonight will be better. I just can't go more than a day or two in between or I feel like I lose ground. I'm planning to make myself push through tonight either way. I'm trying to drink more water today too. I think I do better when I've had more water during the day, no side pains or anything.

ETA: Okay I had week 4 and 5 messed up too. Week 4 was 5 sets and week 5 is 6 sets!

On track

I have walked Day 1 & 2 of Week one of the program. Easy-peasy!
It does make me a little sweaty but I feel really good about getting moving again. Unfortunately even with my 1200 cal a day eating I have not lost any weight?? I do feel as though I'm eating much better (without the fast food) and so I'm going to carry on and see what happens. Thanks for the support,
PS I received my "Mickey Mail" today for my Dec trip!

Glad to hear its going good for you! And congrats on the Mickey Mail! That reminds me, I need to call and give them our magical express info but I haven't had time to check on flights arriving the day we need to take magical express. We actually fly in the night before late and are going to spend the night at the Hyatt in the airport and then take magical express over the next morning.

So I did the treadmill again last night and I plan to take tonight off since DD has choir and there's no one to watch DS while I'm in the basement. I did the 5 sets but that last one was HARD. But I did it. Tomorrow night I'm going to do 5 again and then hopefully on Friday or Saturday I can do 6. I'd like to get a couple extra days in this week even though we are supposed to take a day in between. To get caught up, but also because I seem to do better the next day then when I wait a day.

Uh oh! Does that mean what I think it means?? lol That you've been doing one less rep than required each week?

Awesome Mullysisters! Even walking it is so much better than doing NOTHING!

Not sure I can help with calorie counting. I usually low carb and don't pay attention to calories. Just make sure you take measurements because once you start building up muscle through exercise, it is more dense and weighs more than fat so you can't always trust your scale. I usually just go by the fit of my clothes.

I won't hit the track until tomorrow night. Going to aim for 5 reps of 3 min. runs and 1 min. walks. That's only 20 minutes and we have been doing 30 minutes so hoping it's not TOO bad.

Gosh, I can remember when 30 seconds of jogging felt like death to me back in April. It's fun to see progress being made!

Thankfully I think just week 4 and 5. For what I thought was week four I only did 4 reps of walk 2 jog 3. So I'm going to try to work up to 6 reps this week but I'm going to be behind you for sure. The 5 reps kicked my butt last night. Tomorrow I'll do 5 again and then hopefully I can get to 6 over the weekend. I may try to start cutting down my walking time as I go so that I can move on to the 1 minute walk by sometime next week too.

Just don't feel like you have to rush because of me. I have a feeling I'm going to be stuck in between Week #5 and #6 for a while, LOL!

Week One

I finished the 3 runs of Week one. The first run was the hardest and the third set the easiest, I hope that continues!!
Starting week two today. I've finally started to lose a little, so that is a motivator.
I pulled out my "possible" clothes for Disney. It is getting cool here in central Ontario but I'm hoping for warmer weather in December at Disney. I have some summer clothes I should fit into if I could lose about 1-2" from my waist.

That's great! I found the first few weeks to definitely feel easier by the 3rd day. Its so nice to feel like you are accomplishing something!

Tonight I will do at least 5 sets of walk 2 run 3 but I'm hoping to add an extra set in there if I can. But we'll see.
