  1. Just checking in. Have you been consistent with the program since October? I love that the three days a week are flexible, if you miss a day or two (or a couple weeks in my case, some times) you just pick up where you left off. Good luck!
  2. I have set a very lofty goal of covering 1,000 miles in 2020. Not all running, but walking/running. I'm off to a great start. I've only taking three days off through the first two weeks and I'm pushing to keep it going. I'd love to be pushed by this community to keep on track. 14 days in, I've covered 33 miles to far.

    Randy, you can do it. I hope you are a few weeks into the program right now. Just take your time, don't be afraid to repeat or even take a step back if needed. You can do this!
  4. Great job Cheryl. I'm going through the program for the third or fourth time and I'm coming up on W4D3 and I'm not looking forward to it, but I recall that sense of accomplishment the first time I pulled it off, and I'm hoping to use that as motivation to get through!
  5. Don't judge yourself by how good you are overall, or by other people. Just judge by how you compare to yourself a week or month early. Small steps toward getting better is what really matters! Good luck.
  6. Renata, welcome and congrats on the 5K! There is nothing like the feeling of accomplishment during training and especially on race day!
  7. Hi Jen, and welcome. I've suffered from lower back pain for about 20 years, and I'm just about four weeks into the program (for the third or fourth time). I've found that concentrating on running with slightly tightened stomach muscles has helped produce much better posture for me and has limited my back pain. Good luck!
  8. First of all, great job on getting started and be careful with the Coyotes! I'm not sure about shin splints, but might compression socks help?
  9. Starting late is better than not starting at all! Great job.
  10. Sonia, welcome and good luck on your journey. This app is a great way to get started!
  11. Kim, I think as long as you're running it doesn't matter. The biggest thing is building the endurance and your muscles, and you'll be working them whether on the treadmill or outside. If your plan is to run a race, I would suggest once a week or once every two weeks, you do one of the days outside, as it will be different, and you don't want your body to be in complete shock when you try to run the actual race. Good luck!
  12. Marcau, Welcome, glad you found the app. I suffered from mild asthma when I was younger, and luckily it does not affect me too much now. One of the things that has always helped, and seems silly to me to wonder why I never did it, was taking a deep breath while running. I was always breathing so hard, I didn't think I could get a deep breath, but it really helps me to get back to a smooth pattern of breathing. Good luck and keep up the good work!
  13. Haven't seen an update in a while, I'm hoping you kept the motivation after getting back to work. I actually went the opposite, I don't know why. I didn't get out much during the break, but have gotten back to early mornings now that I'm back to work and kids are back in school. If you ever have trouble motivating when it's nasty out, I think about a meme, I think ZenLabs may have posted a while back that read something like: Running your normal route in the rain makes you feel like a complete bad ass. I had some rain pick up this morning, late in my shuffle, and I used it as motivation. Keep up the good work!
  14. Sharon, you do what you can do. Speed is not important, in my opinion. If you're jogging and getting your heart rate up, that's what is important. If you get to running in some races, and aren't happy with a time, you could go back and work through the program again, running faster to try to build up. But if you're running on a treadmill for exercise, the speed is what's comfortable for you to run.
  15. If you stand on the edge of a step with your toes and let your ankles drop down, that will stretch that area. compression socks could help, as well.
