    Treadmill User

    I'm a short, slow woman. My walk speed is 3.5 mph and my run speed between 4.6 and 5.0 mph on the treadmill. I vary the incline from 0 to 2% depending on whether I'm training for a race or just running indoors because it's cold/hot/wet. When you can finish your day's goal and feel tired but you're not wheezing, set it 0.1 faster the next day. Eventually you'll get to a speed that lets you finish strong and still have the energy to finish your day!

    Is sixty too late?

    I started with C25K last January, on my 59th birthday. I'll be running a 10 K this January on my 60th birthday. My only goal is to finish the race! Running has made me stronger in every imaginable way.
  3. I turned 59 in January and started running for the first time ever using the C25K app. Yesterday evening I ran my first 5K race, and came in second in my age group. Thanks Zen Labs!

    Well this is me.... :-)

    I'm going to recommend Weight Watchers. I joined in July and I've lost weight every single week since then without feeling like I'm on a diet. (I do not work for WW!) it's not your mother's WW anymore. The mobile app is great, as is the website. They even offer personal, private counseling now, but I haven't tried that. The best part for me is the support of the weekly meetings. Not for everyone, but figured I'd throw it out there.
  5. I'm in the same boat, but I'm 59, not 39. I got to Week 3 before the holidays, and I've just re-started. If I have a hard time getting through a session, I just repeat it until I can do it, then I move on to the next one. What have we got to lose? Nothing but weight!
