  1. I am surprised I am still training! Week 5! It is difficult to find time for this but find myself looking for a time that I can squeeze running into my week. I still don't like running but I look forward to the training time. I am surprised. RealNurseMom, I hope you are able to find time to continue! Good luck to you all!
  2. Depends what is best for you. I have more energy in the morning. Have a good breakfast with some protein, then work out. Shower and you are ready for your day!
  3. Glad you started again. I am not a runner! On week 2. Plan to continue. Signed up for 5k this weekend and in April. Hopefully will run more than walk by April . Hopefully you will also!
  4. Wow ladies. I applaud you for all of your dedication and hard work! I am an RN also. I have two kids but they are in college now. I agree with you that life is busy and it is hard to fit in any self-care. I think working 12 hours shifts is enough exercise on the body! I am teaching now and not in the floor anymore except for clinicals. I am taking time now for self-care but realize now how much I needed it years ago. I was always good at taking care of others and not having any time or energy for myself. I wish I would have realized the importance of this earlier. So do your best. Do what you can because any exercise is good. Be kind to yourself as well when you are busy and can't do as Much as you want. Good luck in your efforts for self-care!!
  5. I don't know how to delete my double entry! Sorry
  6. I am not a runner but love to walk. I am on day 2 and today my knee hurts. Every step of running. Finished day 2 but don't want to hurt my knee so that I won't be able to go hiking! I understand what you are saying. One of my friends said to avoid shin splints, tap your foot about 20 times each. Not sure what to do about knee, but keep going even if you walk. Better than sitting on the couch! Hope you feel better

  8. I am finding out it is difficult to run in the winter. My app kept telling me to start running as I was going uphill on ice! I didn't like that until it later told me to start running and I was going downhill. That was scarier! I have grippers on my boots though. I also read a tip on this app to keep your head up and not look down. Well that won't work! I have to see where to place my feet on the trails. I hope my back doesn't start hurting! I like your idea of running in place inside. Not as much fun, but might keep me going. Thanks

    Day 2

    Hi. I am starting C25K to get in shape. I love to walk and hike but am not a runner. A group I belong to decided to participate in the Heart Run this year. It is a 5k. Although I can definitely walk this, I will try to run more than walk. This is motivation to get in shape! Although I found out yesterday, it is challenging running on icy trails! I'll see how much I can do.
