Took almost 8 weeks, but I clobbered W5D3 today!

Recommended Posts

I started C25K on 5/28/15 and today finally ran the dreaded 20 minutes! It wasn't fast, but I didn't stop. I have been dreading this day for weeks now and delaying it for a dozen different reasons, but I am so glad I did it. This was my first attempt, too!

Last year, at age 40, I weighed 253 lbs and hadn't exercised in at least 20 years. I quit smoking 10 years ago in May and started making conscious food choices last August (I now have a 200+ day streak on MyFitnessPal). This year at 41, I am down 73 lbs and running (or slow jogging anyway). If I can do it, so can you! Next 4th of July, I'm going to run a 10k with my dad, and I intend to place well!

Well done!! I took care of that stage yesterday and I dreaded it too. Mine was slow too, but just going for 20 minutes is big. Amazing what you achieved! You must feel great shedding over 70 lbs. Looking forward to when you smack the 5k run out of the ballpark!
