Teena Posted January 21, 2015 Report Share Posted January 21, 2015 Wow...its been about 5 1/2 years since I last attempted to run. I wanted to die at about minute 16 and every time the girls voice came on and said "start running" I wanted to scream...but I DID IT. The last minute was about torture and my 11 year old son ran with me cheering me on. It was a great accomplishment. My body is pretty sore but otherwise I feel good. But heres a little about myself: I am 32 years old and a single mother. I was in the Air Force for 8 years and would run about 14 miles a week...I always did much better with long distance running versus running fast so I struggled with the pt test. I've been out of the Air Force for 5 years, went to college, became a paralegal and gained probably over 50 pounds. I was 160 when I left the Air Force and the last time I got on a scale 6 months ago I was 220. This past Monday, my son said that he wanted to go for a run, he is 11 and a baseball player and he wants to start running as he gets back into the season. So he ran...I walked and watched him and I decided that I wanted to start running again too. So I went home and downloaded the C25KFree App and did my first day last night. I am praying that I continue through this program because my son and I now committed each other to running a 5K together in 3 months or so. Good luck! I hope we can all encourage each other on this journey. Happy Running!! TheRoseWithin~Shannon 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
