  1. I'm BACK! Took a year off of C25K due to a move, a new job, and lots of other little things. Today I finished my first round of week 2 (I do each week twice before moving on). Happy Thursday everyone
  2. It's been a long time since I last posted. But today was an exceptional day!! When I started training in mid January, I was fortunate to find two ladies near my age and in the same shape! Winners at being couch potatoes. We all live in different states, but communicated almost daily, our struggles and success as we advanced through the 8 weeks. We all believe that if we didn't have our little group we would have given up at some point. But having others to be accountable to got us to where we are today! Yesterday we traveled from different parts of the country and meet up in Chicago and ran the Rock 'n' Roll 5K together. I so wish I could post a picture of us at the finish line!! Hey Torus!!! Still going strong!! Good to see your posts!
  3. After a pretty long hiatus I got out this morning and ran 5 miles.
  4. 5K on treadmills yesterday got my speed up to 3.7 MPH with several sprints at 4.0 MPH And 2.1 mile power walk at lunch today, with an awful hill! Managed to keep the 3.7 MPH pace. slowly my speed is increasing
  5. Ran my first official 5K last night in Austin Tx, a great first! Foam Glow 5K, was not officially timed but such fun! My timing was also so much better than my usual and what I expected by nearly 4 minutes !!!!. Especially for all the hills on this course. I guess running with a pack makes a difference in speed
  6. Day 3 week 10 ran 4 miles. Tomorrow I'm moving on to 4.25 miles
  7. The only quote of Nixon's that I can recall is... "I'm not a crook". Ran 4 miles today.
  8. I run with a slim fanny pack (to hold my phone and keys) and tuck the water bottle in the back using the belt to hold it. And before I had the Fannypack I just used to put the bottle in my back using my pants to hold it.
  9. Good job Michael! I'm up to running 4 miles. BTW I'm 54 and 60# over weight, and if I can do it most anyone can
  10. No more excuses Michael!! Get at there and do it! It really is quite easy! This coming from a 54-year-old overweight mom of 4.
  11. You can do this! I started the app Mid January, finished March 16th. When I started I was 230# and finished at 215. I personally did the program 6 days a week until week 7 when I went back to three days a week. I have friends that have repeated weeks when they felt they weren't ready to MoveOn. Just keep it up and you'll feel great at the end of the eight weeks! quote name="Badjenetix" post="17708" timestamp="1459914910"] Nice Kellyh1970! I just did my week 1/Day 2 workout this evening. Lets keep going!
  12. Torus I love your quote!!! Keep it up you will get there!
  13. I don't like the walk breaks with Week 9 either. On day three I decided to run 3.3miles. I'm gonna increase each week (by .15-.25). My main goal is to make it through a 5K with extra "go power" at the finish line instead of being all spent up.
