I vary the days. In the first week I found I needed two days break between running days.
I walk on non run days. What do you do?

My name is Marianna and I am finally ready to make a new beginning with my life. I suffered from bulimia and I am still struggling with depression. I used to be fit and I enjoyed running, but suddenly depression came by and everything changed. Procrastination and loss of motivation led me to unknown paths. I started hating my body and I forgot how it was to appreciate life and how to be happy. Today is my first run and I cannot wait for it. I can't say that I have won this battle, but I am proud of myself and I want treat my body with respect and love. I must confess that I am feeling really weird right now, since it is the first time that I am publicly talking about this without any guilt or embarassement. I am afraid. I am afraid that I won't be able to complete the run. I am afraid that I am not strong enough. If you are reading and you are also afraid, you are not alone. Just remember that the hardest step is the one out of the front door!
Lots of love,

So I downloaded the PushUp, SitUp and Squats apps. The squats were the hardest and I couldn't even finish them on Week One Day One.
I am forty six years old and was a truck driver for 15 years so I have put on quite a few pounds have lead a sedentary lifestyle. I am getting up for the first time muscle in all these years and trying to make a change. I am 5'6" and 192 pounds. No muscle at all but it begins here. However I am so sore from the squats android couldn't even finish. Well I wish everyone luck and hope that I can look back after sometime and see the results. Peace and God Bless!

I am training for my first 5k in the fall. It is actually a 6k called the Heroes in Recovery 6k supporting those who are recovering from addiction. I have taken many bold steps to get healthy in the last year and a half including getting/staying clean from heroin and losing nearly 80 lbs. Doing any kind of running was always scary for me, but using the c25k app has made it fun and I look forward to where this leads me in my health journey.
