  1. November 1, 2013 I began a new lifestyle of eating clean and circuit training, which include some HIIT of walk/run intervals.  In doing this, I discovered not only could I run (I was a smoker for years and didn't think my lungs could handle it), but I LOVED to run!  I mean seriously, I did some running in my early 20's, but knew nothing about the importance of health.  I decided to include jogging as my cardio several weeks ago, and I set a goal to run a local 5-miler next summer.  I am SO blessed to have found the 10k app.  I am totally addicted!  I run at least five days/week.  Earlier in the training, when the running was about 8 min., I did the same day twice!  Now, the 25 min. seems to be a stretch, but so far so good!  I am thankful for the posts, specifically the tips on breathing, because I was breathing from my mouth and chest!  It's taking me a while to get used to breathing from the gut, but I'm getting there.  THANK YOU, Zen Labs!!! 

  2. I still consider myself "new" to running because I've been docile for so many years...  and I'm pushing 50...  I've made it to Week 7, and the only thing that's got me this far is the fact my speed is MY speed.  I HAVE to pace myself and start jogging slow.  Seriously, a speed walker could zoom past some of my jogging, especially the first couple of minutes.  You're not racing, you're building endurance.  On the days you don't run, try a couple of circuits that strengthen your leg muscles, like lunges, squats, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, etc.  Just my thoughts...
