  1. Welcome Kimasabie! More strides forward! You can do this. It's a great program just follow it and don't try to push it too fast.
  2. Welcome to our very exclusive club, 49erfan . Your plan sounds like a great one just stick to it. It's so easy to come up with excuses. I think part of the reason I haven't skipped any runs yet is because the program is not that many weeks until you're through it. I'm very goal oriented so....it helps me with determination. I just completed w6d1 this morning. So proud of myself!!! I did the LONG run yesterday and got through that too! Keep us posted with your progress.
  3. Great choice on your pre-wedding, weightloss journey. We are here for you! My advice would be to plan your days ahead of time. Put them on a calendar.
  4. Good for you to start now! Within the first week I felt stronger. It's an awesome program, very doable. Keep us updated on your progress!
  5. I did it! W5d1 complete! (I'm patting us all on the back!!)
  6. Hi! It's so nice to hear from everyone. Thank you for posting. I wish I had time to workout more. I work 12 hour days, sitting to commute & sitting at a desk. I love this program so much because it doesn't require that much time & that way I know I can commit to it. I have 3 children. 30, 28 & 22 and one precious little 2y/o grandbaby. I'm getting ready to do w5d1. It's getting tougher but I will do it! Have a great day everyone!
  7. Doing great, Anne! Thx! I'm doing w5d1 tomorrow. The weight is starting to shead down 4lbs. How's your progress?
  8. Thank you Azatol for the recommendation!
  9. Thx! Yes we can do this! Diet is already good. I eat very clean by choice. At this point, the strength training is c25k. I will add more once I'm through the program.
  10. @Azatol- socks to my toes are like a very restrictive girdle. And they are HOT. My shoes are perfect so far, I just didnt know if there was something better on the market. I'm not interested in trying the toe shoes as I also have a very high arch besides the fact that they look like extreme socks! I just hate socks. They are hot, restrictive, they creep down off my heel while running, and I get more blisters with them. I've had non so far without them.
  11. Thanks, Anne. I will continue as is. They are extremely lightweight & comfortable. I just asked because I didn't know if all you pros knew of anything on the market. Good for you week 5! And I don't blame you for stalling!! Lol
  12. I need new running shoes that I don't have to wear socks with. Any suggestions? I have walking shoes that I've been using so far that I love love love! But fear they won't be sufficient in the long run. (Pun intended.) Can I continue with the walking shoes or is that a bad idea? Seriously, I think part of my success so far (w4d2) has been because my feet have been comfortable. I've tried running before and my biggest irritation was always socks!!
