  1. Hello Fitness / Running Experts, While doing running portions of C25K, 10K or marathon run/walk programs, 1) can one be running too slowly? 2) if they are too slow, is it really running, or is it fast walking mistaken as running? I believe I can instinctively say that I am doing running, although it's very slow. How do I make sure that it is not slow to a point where it is impacting relevance of the program or below the minimum running speed expectations of the program. How do I improve upon such issues? Thank you for helping! Background: I started with C25K and then on week 3 switched over to marathon and then took a break before I could finish week 1 there. Now I really want to finish C25K first, then 10K and then marathon. I am 5'5'' and 255 lbs. Have been trying to fasttrack C25K. I realize that best food option for me is eating a "whole food plant based" (aka WFPB) diet, low fat and with a caloric deficit (lesser intake of calories that what I would burn (including exercise)... this along with exercise would be the key to my weight loss and fitness. Having sustained control on my food addiction has been the biggest challenge for me. Regards
  2. Going to do it right this time. This will be my second marathon! I finished the first; however, I didn’t do as well as I would have liked.....and it was a miserable experience that burned me out on running for years afterwards. Mistake 1: I overtrained... Mistake 2: I tried to get cute during the race and strayed from my race/ nutrition plan. Mistake 3: Tried to run FASTER too early.... Mistake!! I thought I was MEB Keflezighi!!! Mistake 4: Ran for time on my first Marathon...instead of just focusing on finishing. This time, I will enjoy the training process, follow the body/nutrition prep recommendations, and stick to my run/walk plan. I will not run for time.....just enjoyment!
