  1. Hi guys! I had completed one round of this amazing program, when I herniated a disc in my back. Had surgery last spring (micro-discectomy), and feel I am at a point where I need to get back into it. Surgeon asked if I had to run, and I said no. He said then don’t. Problem is, I feel like crap, have gained probably 20 pounds, and want to feel good again, instead of like a slug lol. Did day 1, week 1, today on a nice cushy treadmill. Wish me luck!
  2. Wow for $8, I'm going to try them out for sure! Thanks!
  3. Georgia, good for you getting started!! That's usually the hardest part. Was for me anyway. That's the best thing about this app, it constantly challenges and pushes you, and there are a million people cheering you on! I usually run religiously every other day M-F and sometimes Sunday's, so I'll check in on you often :-) You got this!
  4. Christi, you'll get there! Running was always so hard for me, but the farther along in this app I got, the more I craved it. The gym closed yesterday before I got off work so I couldn't run, and it's driving me crazy! Stay with it, you'll be glad you did.
  5. Jake, first of all, great job! Breezes is right on though, pace is everything. Focus on your breathing, music, anything other than how much time you have left to go. Mileage doesn't matter, endurance does right now. This app is crazy how it works, just trust in it. You'll amaze yourself! Good luck, you can do this!
  6. Rob, I did those for a couple of weeks and man do you feel it! I've since begun the 10k app, but I'm still varying my speeds since I'm doing it on a treadmill. I'm hoping for faster 5k times while still working up to a 10k.
  7. Which wireless ones Kelly? I'm interested in those as well, but they're expensive! I'd hate to spend that much on something I don't like. And I sweat a lot....like, Erin out my shirt a lot.
  8. I like some Sony's MDRA S200 active earbuds. They have the clip for over your ear, are durable (because I'm the worlds hardest person on earbuds), and sound great for the cost. They're $13.48 on Amazon.
  9. KC, try the next one anyway. I moved on a couple times when I didn't kill the previous one, and surprised myself when I was able to do it.
  10. I did w8d3 last night, so have finished!! I'm going to keep working on my 5k times until I get them where I want them. Endurance first, speed later. Well, speed is now for me. Great job everyone!!
  11. PS, worry about speed later. Endurance is the key this time through. Stay with it, it really works!
  12. Some days are like that, others you feel like you are dominating this. Day 2's were always hard for me, didn't matter what week. I'm 44, but like to pretend I'm 24 :-)
  13. Way to get it done!! I hit my wall during this program more than once, believe me. In in the 5k phase of it right now, and at 2.5 miles, I wanted just walk, just for a minute. But I know if I do, because I have before, it's just not the same so I push through. It really is 80% mental, at least.
  14. I quit last October 30th, so about 14 months ago. I'm always looking for excuses...anything other than, hey! You're 44 and out of shape lol!!
