  1. Way to go on your weight loss! Other than what I was required to run in P.E in high school, I've never ran either and that was 15 yrs ago. I'm on wk6d3 today and I've been able to do every workout so far. So you can do this too! Keep us updated on your progress.
  2. Hi Dess, I completely understand! I have 4 kids and unless it want to wake up and run before my husband leaves for work, or run after the kids go to bed - which I'm not apt to do right now - I run inside on an elliptical. The first few weeks I would run at 5 - 5.5mph, but week 4 and 5 I've had to cut back to between 4 - 4.5mph so I would have endurance to get to the the end of the running segment. I just completed wk5d3 and was able to run the 20 mins without running less than 4mph and I was barely out of breath at the end.
  3. Good luck, Tori! You can do this! I started this program at 50lbs overweight, and I just completed week 5. We're here for you!
  4. Welcome Brendan! Good luck with your preparations for the ADS!
  5. Whenever you need support, you've come to the right place! You can do this! As for diet, make small changes a little at a time. My husband has lost 30 pounds by slowly tweaking his diet, by either adding something healthier one week, eating smaller portions or deleting something that wasn't healthy. You can get healthier! it's just finding the method that works for you. Good luck and have fun!
  6. We'll be rooting for you!
  7. Always stretch after your workout. That's an important step to never skip. And only stretch warm muscles, never before a workout when you're muscles are cool and you're more likely to do damage.
  8. Do what you feel is right for you, if you think you need that extra week, then no shame in doing week 3 again. I thought week 4 day 1 was rough too, and seriously debated doing week 3 again too. I figured I'd give wk4d2 a try though and see if I'd feel better, and i did improve by by a little bit, so I continued on with the week. So do what feels right. Congrats on the weight loss!
  9. Good for you trying to get heathlier. And I'm sure your daughter will be beaming with pride when her dad finishes the race with her!
  10. Congratulations on your little one and on getting back out there! Good luck and have fun :-)
  11. Welcome! You're never too old to try something new, you've got this!
  12. Welcome back, Brent. I am one of those people that loves reading about others' stories. Thanks for yours.
  13. Sounds like you might have pulled your hamstrings. I would say alternate putting heat and ice on it, and flush out all the bad stuff. Take some ibuprofen too. If you're in that much pain, I wouldn't run on it, you're body tells you that you're in pain for a reason, and you don't want to cause further injury. When you think you're ready, then start back up again.
  14. Good luck on your journey to a healthy lifestyle. We are here for all the encouragement you need.
