    Hello, all!

    Hello, everyone! I'm a 29-year-old mom of 3 living in Colorado. I'm trying to get back in shape! I worked at a hospital, moving patients for over two years. I was walking 8-12 miles a day, moving patients! I got into really great shape. I left that job almost two years ago after moving an hour away and commuting for a year. I'm lucky if I walk 2 miles in a day now. I stand all day at my current job, so I feel exhausted by the end of the day, but without getting many steps in. I really want to get back in shape! My weight hasn't changed, but I'm a lot less muscular now. I just finished day 3 and I'm having a tough time staying motivated, but I'm looking forward to continuing this journey!

    Training for April 5k

    I have decided that, after my 5K on the 27th, I will probably not come to these forums, except once in a great while if I do come at all. They have been very helpful, and I do still intend to "run" a 10K in October but I will not be using the app after my 5K run, even though it has many weeks to go. I think I'll be like your relative, CleBkPkr, and take at least a year before I'm an actual runner. And like him, I intend to keep going until I can actually run and do it well - even if it takes me two or three years.

    Hello, all!

    I think standing is more fatiguing to the body than walking around. It's no wonder you're so tired at the end of your day. CleBkPkr's advice to run before work seems like it's probably a good idea.

    Hello, all!

    Good for you! A lot of times come the end of the day I am whooped. I do my runs in the morning, after coffee of course lol Hang in there, you can do this!

    New to running!!!

    That’s exactly it to Silver. Tim, my cousin’s son who is my inspiration told me it took him a year to be able to run and now? That kid is incredible. Lost 100 pounds and man can he run! There was a weekend run with 2 groupings. A 5 mile and a 2 mile. He registered for both lol He was running with a race bib pinned to each of his thighs

    Training for April 5k

    I don’t start it now until I’ve been walking 5 minutes. It has helped a lot. I really believe I need that little extra to warm up!
