    5K on St. Patrick’s Day 2019

    This weekend I’m participating in a 5K/Guinness World Record Kilt Run. I’m excited and nervous too! I need some good vibes my way! My goal is to finish ahead of my 5K I was in this past Thanksgiving. I won’t “run” the whole thing but I sure hope to finish with some good stretches of running. Please! Send those positive vibes my way

    Good Luck! You can do this. I really like the idea of a back back for layers. Or, my cousin the marathon runner says, "wear old clothes as outer layers and don't worry about getting them back."

    Definitely layers. Maybe a backpack to carry any layers you take off?

    Training for April 5k

    On some thread that I can't find now, I posted that coffee leaches calcium from one's bones. Turns out that the amount is negligible. (Sorry for the large font below. It's a copy and paste from an email I sent this morning.) If 1-2 tablespoons of milk offsets the negative effects of caffeine/coffee, then it really is nothing to worry about, so I'm back with drinking coffee on my run days. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/12204390/

    Weightloss and Park runs.

    I've joined up to lose some weight, I've put on around 40lbs since my wedding in 2017 and need to sort myself out to get in better shape, I've done casual runni g before but never kept it up, hopefully c25k can keep me on track. I'm sound 207lbs now and looking to get down to 160ish and get some regular park runs in over summer. I'm a bit of a yoyoer so really going to give this my best shot.

    C25K on my elliptical

    Week 1 day 2 Yesterday I did day 2 of week 1 on my elliptical. First I didn't want to do it because I'm not a very sportive person but I am glad that I did it. I want to finish this program on my elliptical. Maybe when I lose some weight and my body is in better shape I will going to like sport but for now it's still difficult. I feel like I have no energy. But I will finish it. And I'm trying to eat as healthy as possible. Well tomorrow I will do day 3. Kamille.

    Motivation needed

    I have to agree with ninja, habit is a big key. I struggle with motivation too. I started writing everyday. There are days I finish a stint on the treadmill and write about it knowing I can go back and read about it on a day I’m struggling. I write on the days I struggle too. It’s not always sunshine and roses lol Hang in there and keep working at it!

    Week 3 Day 3 ugh

    This morning I went with W2D3 again. My first mile was 17:31 so I was really happy. It means I am moving longer/faster. I think going back to week 2 was the right decision. I had a talk with my cousin's son, my second cousin I guess he would be? lol At any rate, he was my biggest influence to really get moving. He lost 100+ pounds (I need to lose 20) and he said it took him all of a year to be able to run. When he started he couldn't run 300 feet let alone 3 miles. It was a good reminder to myself to stop being so hard on myself. I know I'll get there and have already made some great strides. The tough part is sometimes feeling like I'm not making enough progress fast enough. I don't want to give up!

    Week 3 Day 3 ugh

    I finished W3D1 yesterday and surprised myself. I didn't think I could run for 3 minutes straight, but I did it. Feeling confident.

    Training for 5k

    I've never been a runner, but recently it occurred to me that if I can walk three or four miles I could probably learn to run it. So I decided to shoot for a 5K run that is in my local area near the end of April. I may become a runner yet.

    Training for 5k

    I’m so excited for you! I remember the first time (5 years ago) I learned that I could run. It was amazing to me! Congratulations on giving it a try! I am also planning to run in a 5k at the end of April. This will be my 5th time doing this race but I wouldn’t really consider myself a runner. I use the race as motivation to get back outside and do some walk/jog laps. So, here I am again trying to jumpstart myself to get back out there. This is my first time using the c25k program. I just started this week so I’m ready today for w1d2. It’s a cold 23 outside right now. Time to layer up!

    Training for 5k

    I forgot to mention that the c25k app I'm using is a godsend. It is really helping me do what I wasn't sure I could do.

    This may sound rediculous

    I have self stick velcro. Place half of the velcro on my phone and the other half of it on my forehead. Stick that puppy to my forehead and away I go. Best. Ever.

    https://www.armpocket.com/ Big enough to hold your phone, ID, a small key ring (one or two keys for the car or house) and you can tighten the strap as much or as little as you like. Works great with regular or wireless headphones. Hope this helps!

    I hold it in my hand. It's in a case so I'm not afraid of dropping it. I also loop the headphones under my right bra strap so the cord doesn't pull on the earbuds.
