    farmgirl got a reaction from jbmom91 in Advice on sports bras?   
    Ok Ladies I need some advice.  There's no way to ask this without being blunt, but I need some help keeping "the girls" from jiggling so bad when I run.  I have been blessed with an ample chest and I'm having trouble finding a sports bra that will reign them in.  I have gone as far as buying one that's a couple of sizes too small and geez it hurts!  When I run they run too and it's becoming very uncomfortable on the days that I run the track or outdoors.  I don't want to have to choose between being able to breathe or bruising my boobs and I'm sure that I'm not alone in this struggle so can anyone give me any advice on a great sports bra?

    farmgirl got a reaction from katie in Help! My Ankles are killing me!   
    I have been trying to walk to gear up to start C25K soon as I am terribly out of shape.  When walking, I am having a terrible time with ankle pain.  It is a burning, excruciating pain that goes up the outside of my ankles.  From researching it appears to be possibly peroneal (sp?) tendonitis.  I am certain that it is related to both my size and my previous lack of activity but I am having a really hard time powering through it.  Will it go away in time?  Also, any suggestions to help to prevent/ease this pain in the mean-time would be greatly appreciated.  I am really psyched up and excited to start C25K and I don't want to lose that excitement over this.

    farmgirl got a reaction from TheRoseWithin~Shannon in Mostly inside runner feeling embarrassed at 5K   
    First of all I love the word "wog" and plan to steal it LOL!  And the embarrassment that you felt is understandable... we psych ourselves up, pep talk, all that good stuff to be "ready" for anything that we decide to throw at ourselves and anything less than what we expected can feel like a failure.  Just remember, you finished a 5K!  OMG do you realize how awesome it is just to have finished it?!  No matter how long it took you, be proud that you did it and you can only improve from here

    farmgirl got a reaction from tee1976 in What type of shorts and tops do you recommend   
    Honestly the only way that I've found to avoid chub rub is to wear capris.  Danskin makes a very comfy moisture wicking capri and you can find them at Walmart or on Walmart's website.  Very reasonably priced.  Maybe after I lose weight I can rock some shorts when running but right now they just ride up too much and capri's give me one less thing to worry about LOL!

    Rachel I'm fascinated when you say that you want to get back into boxing!  I love boxing!  Although I've never technically sparred with anyone, (outside of my younger, redneck rowdy days), I do have a punching bag hanging in my garage and find it to be the ultimate stress release!  Good luck to you

    farmgirl got a reaction from KellyAnn in New to app   
    Very excited for y'all for making the decision!  I really love this app.  There is something about it that motivates me to push that extra few seconds to make it until I get the voice prompt to walk and then WOOHOO!  I don't know what your fitness level is, I really had none when I started LOL!  If you find that it is too difficult to move to the next week, don't be afraid to repeat a week or a day.  It's better to do this than to give up.  Just stick with it and support each other and if you ever need that extra support or have any questions just ask   Happy Running!

    farmgirl got a reaction from KellyAnn in "I don't run unless something's chasing me"   
    Melissa I used to say the same thing until I realized that my butt is the big thing that's chasing me and I NEED to run from it!  I'm not sure what kind of lack of support that you get at home, but I may have a similar situation.  My husband and I don't have children and my cooking is something that he really loves and I cook like a southern woman should and I love it too LOL!  He has never been wild about the idea of going on a "diet" and neither am I really.  He doesn't really need to lose weight so if I go on a diet, he does too.  With only the two of us it would be very difficult for just one of us to be on a diet.  So my solution has been to keep on cooking the way I always have but I have started cutting my portions.  I am eating the same yummy foods but cutting out seconds and I'm using a smaller plate to fool my eyes and brain.  I can imagine that if you're cooking for a husband and children it would be nearly impossible for you to go on a traditional "diet" by yourself so this may work for you as it has for me.  Any way that you do it though, just do it!  Don't give up and do this for yourself

    farmgirl got a reaction from KellyAnn in Sharing to Facebook after how do I set it up?   
    When you finish your first session it will give you the option to share on Facebook or Twitter.  You will have to sign in to your social media account from the C25K app to integrate the two.  After the initial setup all you have to do is share after you finish each workout if you wish.  Happy Running!

    OMG you guys are awesome!  It's such a wonderful feeling knowing that we're all in this together and seeing this support!  And Ju, don't worry too much yet about your results, right now it's just about getting your body used to moving again.  The distance will increase naturally as your stamina increases.  Sreca keep that positive attitude... it'll get you just as far as your body will!  Happy Running everyone!

    Yes it is easy to quit, but why waste all of the progress you've made?  My goodness you're through week 2 and that's a big accomplishment!  Just imagine how awesome it's going to feel to see that last day completed on the app!  It is difficult sometimes to find time to run, but it's only 30 minutes a day... find your motivation and don't give up

    Hey farmgirl. I am in the boonies myself and I run my track around my property right now. When I hike with my friend, we don't listen to music. I finally download the app and I went past the screen and see the free music. Thanks. I love how we all help each other.

    OH honey don't be nervous!  You're doing this for you and only you... no one else to impress, no one else's business unless you want it to be   The biggest thing that you need to remember is that you're not alone.  There are tons of us that have started C25K for various reasons and we're all in this together.  Like Kellyb said, Just do it!  I'm going to be honest with you I'm not a big fan of running.  The fact is I pretty much hate life while I'm running... but I have fallen in love with the feeling that I have afterwards, and I'm REALLY loving all of the people that are asking me if I'm losing weight!  Just ease yourself into it, don't be afraid to repeat weeks and push yourself.  You'll be surprised by what your body can do when your mind will let it.  Happy Running!

    Alex don't give up!  Be sure to rest though, sometimes doing too much is what will make you sick.  And it's ok if you didn't get through all of the runs at first, you will!  Just keep at it and over time your body will grow stronger as your stamina increases.  Not everyone goes at the same pace... don't be afraid to repeat weeks or whatever you have to do, but don't give up
