  1. I occasionally do. But I run with it in my hands so it's actually not very efficient...other times I have water waiting for me when I go a lap. That's easier for me. However I run in my neighborhood so it's not necessarily practical unless you do as well. If you run on trails and things of that sort, then it might would be best to carry one or possible carry it in a backpack. The extra weight would make it harder to run, however it would help you in the long run. (Pun not intended)
  2. I'm stuck on week 4 too, but I think you should keep at it. And maybe slow your pace down. Try try again. The only time you really fail is when you stop trying. A bad run is better than no run and you'll eventually make it! Good luck!
  3. Thanks for all the encouragement! Unfortunately I'm having to redo week four and I'm still struggling. But hopefully I'll be able to get better and better!!! Today's run was the worst I've done, but it's better than no run
  4. I'm excited and terrified at the same time. Running five whole mins is...unimaginable for me. Even though I know it's just in my head and I can do it. Doesn't scare me as much as that week 5 day 3 tho...
  5. I am not a morning person. As much as I try, I can't get up early for a run. At all. Any tips on how to make yourself wake up and get up early?
  6. Thanks! I haven't been able to yet, but I think I'm finally to the point where I can breathe well enough to run:)
  7. I see! Well...physically I'm fine I suppose. I take karate four times a week for about 6 hours every week. I ended up skipping week 1 cuz I figured it was too easy for me at least. But after completing the first day of week 2, I thought it was possible for me to be able to run a little more. My mind is the hard part to really make it happen though. Running for 3 minutes straight seems impossible, but it's only 90 seconds more right? The time will pass anyway...so I might try it. The only possible injury I can think of is a knee injury. I've had bad knees for a long time. I think it was some knee disorder thing? Can't remember the name for the life of me... So the knees are weak. But! It's worth a shot to try running 3 minutes anyway:)
  8. I'm on week 2. I finished day 1 and it really wasn't that bad. Can I go on ahead and start week 3? Is that wise? Or should I try week three and see how it does and go back to week 2 if it's too much right now?
  9. So I've always exercised when I'm starting to get sick. Sweat it out. Even if it isn't much. But now, I'm all congested and it's hard to breathe out of my nose at all. Still, is it a good idea to run? I don't wanna stop until I'm better tho so what should I do? I really really want to be able to run a 5k by May 13th(9 weeks away). That's my goal. How can I still do it when I have to slow down a bit? Thanks for any tips
  10. Thanks for the tips:) it's really rough on my knees sometimes. Always had bad knees. I'm not really close to mountains(about 4-5 hours away from the Appalachians) but where I'm at there's always lots of hills everywhere I go. I love it! I am going to the mountains in the summer and plan to run there. And if I am able to keep up with pace of the running schedule I might be up to a 10k run by then:) (fingers crossed...)
  11. So, I have completed week 2 day 1. But where I run is practically all hills. I don't like running on treadmills and I like where I run. I realize that running up hill is probably better for you when it comes to running. I used to run more often but I hurt my knee so I had to take a break. the hills always seem to make my muscles scream. I don't wanna change my running place or anything(because there's points where it's goes straight down. That's fun.) but I would like to see if anyone has any uphill running tips. Maybe something to make it a little easier to endure? Any ideas?
