  1. Hello all! I hope things are going well. I am now 2 weeks post 10k training. It was actually quite fun doing it and I cannot believe that I was able to run even further with my kidney issue. My little one always falls asleep during the run and just sleeps until I take her out so I can shower. I'm hoping the rest of you are keeping up with it. I dropped a total of 12 lbs between the two trainers and feel like a million bucks. I'm trying that strange fad called the military diet noe and just doing in home workouts. Every once in a while I feel like running and switch off between the 5k and 10k. I am considering the 13.1, but pushing that much for me may be too much. I think I'll go back to the 5k trainer and start jogging with ankle weights. For some reason hearing those beeps just keep me motivated. Like my own little coach.
  2. So the horrible weather and my little getting sick for a week had me change my mind on starting the 10k training. I finished the 5k training and really surprised myself. I had increased my speed and my body always felt much better after I ran. My niece got to do my last run with me and she is 8. I was surprised she kept up most of the way. I now doing the Brazil Butt Lift workouts indoor and I think that I want to try and run on Sunday's if the weather allows (it's my only rest day in the workout series). Part of me really misses running so I want to keep doing it. I also think I may go backwards if I don't keep it up. How is everyone else doing? I know the weather can really mess things up unless you have a an indoor track you go to.
  3. Welcome! It's definitely a bit of a challenge at first, but it gets better. I think I will go ahead and do the 10k, my ultimate goal is a triathlon so I have a ways to go.
  4. Thanks for asking! Things are great! Tomorrow is the last day of week 7!! so exciting and nerve-wracking to only have one final week. I have become stronger in pushing the stroller. I can now do it much longer in each position (both hands, one hand at a time). My little normally goes to sleep when I run so that also helps a ton. I did a 5k last weekend, but I only walked it because it was too packed to even try to jog. Also the mud was pretty intense. I was actually running in a school parking lot because it's easy to circle around and was nice at night since it was very lit up. Also the cleaning crew was always there so I felt pretty safe. I started going earlier due to the time change and realized that I have to change my route due to all the school traffic. So I changed to going up and down a couple of streets by my home. It has proven to be quite effective because I now how far I got the previous time I did it and I want to beat that, so it's been a big plus. I also want to say that it has become much easier for me to run. I never could have imagined jogging for 25 minutes straight. The only thing I'm a little worried about next week is when I get to the final run. Normally after 35 minutes I have to go to the restroom even if I go right before the workout. I have one kidney and so that is a small concern of mine. I don't like stopping to use the restroom, so I hope I can make it. I don't know what to do after I complete the 5k training. Do I keep doing the week 8 day 3 run and keep improving? or should I try to move on and try the 10k?
  5. hahah, yes they do and that is what I'm using. They are much easier to push than regular stroller and go along with bumps instead of feeling like you will fall each bump you hit. Today starts week 5, but I don't know if I can handle it. I will do my best of course!
  6. Thanks for the responses everyone. Honestly it seems to be getting a bit easier as time goes on. Since I've been doing it each week and also slimming back down everything seems easier. Maybe I won't be saying that when i get to week 7, but I am halfway to the final now since I'm on week 4. I have always been a sprinter and would always want to do long distance, but just didn't have the endurance for it. Now my breathing seems to be getting better and the lbs are coming off as well. It sure is exciting to be able to do it while looking at my little girl. Sometimes she plays while I jog and that makes me want to do even better. Once she starts being able to run around I will need to be able to keep up.
  7. So I had a baby in March and I have been doing all I can to get in shape. Last weekend I did a 5k mud run that had I believe it was 25 obstacles. I am proud of myself for finishing and dping almost everyone of them, but I was not happy with the fact that I had to walk almost all of it from the start.I decided to start using this app again because I remember how much it helped me before. This time though I am pushing my babies stroller while training. It has proven to be quite challenging. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions about this. I'm wondering if this would actually make me run better when I do the next 5k since I won't have to be pushing anything along the way. Today was week 1 day 1 and I did better than I expected to, but I was winded very quickly. Excited about the future and all the other 5ks I will attempt to do.
