Hi. I am a seasoned “walker”. I have been walking an hour on the treadmill elevated to level 10 (3 days per week) for about 2 years. But I have decided that I’d really like to run a 5k or maybe even farther. The walking has helped me lose about 20 lbs and feel healthier but I still need to lose the last few stubborn pounds. Hoping that starting to run will assist in that (even though the calories burned is less in the beginning, I am aiming for a bigger goal) .That said, Day 1 complete.
