  1. Ok, so I did five 5k in five weeks. One of them was a trail run, which was very challenging. I didn't worry about time just enjoyed it but I did it in under an hour. My speed has not gotten much faster than when I ran my 2nd 5k. So am going take a break from running races this next month or so and work on improving my strength and speed. My legs seem to tire more than I do. Any suggestions s?
  2. I fnished my second 5k today. I did the first one two weeks ago. I ran it about a minute faster than the first one. This one else I finished in 34:40. I was shocked that I won first in my age group-Masters (fifty and over). There ended up being eleven of us in that age group. Really stoked and want to just keep it improving my time and start working on the 10k program.
  3. Thanks! Going to run another one in a couple of weeks
  4. Well, I did it! I ran my first 5k yesterday. I was nervous just because it was my first time I am race situation. My time was 35.40. I was hoping for a little faster but I will takethat. I am already getting good ready to run another in a couple of weeks. I don't know that I would have accomplished this without this app.
  5. Thanks everyone. I will let you know how it goes.
  6. Thanks, Jeshi! That is kind of what I was thinking.
  7. I tend to run on a treadmill in the end of the summer because of the heat and i like itbecause it helps me maintain my pace and i can even speed up a little to help me sp eed up my pace. Hope that makes sense.
  8. Good luck Sean. I have never ran before and this app has really helped me. I have even found my self loo,ingredients forward to it.
  9. I just got a new pair of ASICS and they really have a lot of cushion.I tend to run heavy on my feet. So far they are great.

  11. I am running my first 5k on Oct 31st. How should I be running leafing up to it? Any thoughts on a pre run mea i typically run in the evenings so not used to the breakfast thing before a run. I usually have a mini bagel with peanut butte Any suggestions on either? Thanks this app has been great for my motivation.
  12. I have been using the treadmill, because this time of year it is so hot in Texas I have been running at 5.5 to 6 and i walk at 4.2 to 5. I have had the incline at .5 or 1. I hope to get outside in the next couple of weeks. I just started week 6 and I know it will be harder for me when ever I actually get outside. The treadmill does help me keep a steady pace though
  13. OK just finished W5D2. It seemed a little intimidating when I first looked at it, but it actually seemed a little easier than the week 4 runs. We will see what happens on day 3. Feeling pretty good about myself now though.
  14. Way to go! I am 52 as well and in week 4 . Looking forward to my week 8 .
  15. Oh, and thanks for the encouragement both of you.
