  1. Congrats to you. Any advice for people like me? I am starting week one day one tomorrow I feel a little nervous. When you look at what you need to do for week one day one it seems very simple and very low-key but I am going from laying in bed eating junk food to exercising. But I won't give up no matter what.

    I was the same! (And still am, honestly. I'm not sure drinking two beers and eating two slices of cheesecake before a run was in the training... But oh well!) Don't psyche yourself out! I was super nervous to start and convinced myself it was too much before I even started - but after the first day I felt amazing! Don't try to push yourself too hard and don't think that running equals full-out sprinting. I think of it as conversational jogging. If I'm running so fast I can't catch a breath to talk, then I slow down to being at a comfortable pace.

  2. I love reading things like this it's really helping me I know now I made the right decision when I downloaded this app. I signed up for a 5K in October. From Couch to 5K doesn't even cover it it's more like from laying down in bed under the covers watching TV eating cupcakes to 5K LOL

    I know what you mean!! I went from laying on the couch playing video games with 10lbs of junk food next to me... And I started week 2 yesterday! You can do it!

  3. I, too, have never ran in my life. I always said that if you see me running, then something is chasing me.


    I used to be a ballet dancer, and still feel in my heart the freedom it brought me when on the stage. Now I have two kids and been fat and happily married for 10 years and let myself go. But no more! Just finished day 2 today and it hurt like hell was reaching up from underground, but I did it.

    I start day 2 tonight! We can do this!

  4. I've never run before and I just finished Week 1 Day 1! I am sore, but I feel amazing. I have never felt more positive that I could accomplish something like this than I do now! This app is so great and I seriously love it. I am so excited for the coming days. I am ninja running at night so my family stays out of it.


    Tips on how to cool down or running techniques?

  5. I have never ever run in my life. I don't even exercise. I have a big family and many of them are runners (4 of them are running the Caldera Triple right now). My family makes fun of me for eating junk food and not exercising all the time and I'm so sick of it. I plan to run at night because I don't want them making fun of me if they find out I'm trying. So, as I run in secret, I hope this app and this community helps!
