I Have Never Run In My Life

Recommended Posts

I have never ever run in my life. I don't even exercise. I have a big family and many of them are runners (4 of them are running the Caldera Triple right now). My family makes fun of me for eating junk food and not exercising all the time and I'm so sick of it. I plan to run at night because I don't want them making fun of me if they find out I'm trying. So, as I run in secret, I hope this app and this community helps!

I, too, have never ran in my life. I always said that if you see me running, then something is chasing me.

 

I used to be a ballet dancer, and still feel in my heart the freedom it brought me when on the stage. Now I have two kids and been fat and happily married for 10 years and let myself go. But no more! Just finished day 2 today and it hurt like hell was reaching up from underground, but I did it.

I start day 2 tonight! We can do this!

I love reading things like this it's really helping me I know now I made the right decision when I downloaded this app. I signed up for a 5K in October. From Couch to 5K doesn't even cover it it's more like from laying down in bed under the covers watching TV eating cupcakes to 5K LOL

I know what you mean!! I went from laying on the couch playing video games with 10lbs of junk food next to me... And I started week 2 yesterday! You can do it!

I'm with all of you! Not doing in secret but my desire is secret! I work a physical job, not too out of shape but have laid the pounds on from stress. I'm not in the happiest of marriages but I need to make me happy. I have taken care of many people, raised 12 kids (2bio) and now have a husband that I don't know if he will change. This change for me is to better myself. I do not want to look or feel like this in 4 years. I will succeed. You can too! Support that's all we need.

I understand the desire to keep your exercise a secret, but you shouldn't worry about being made fun of for trying to better yourself. Your family's reaction to finding out that you want to run, too, might surprise you.

 

Until you're ready to tell them, though, you've got a whole family of support right here. :)

I'm very e cited tomorrow will be my day one! I work in high risk labor n delivery. I'm 80# heavier than I was 4 yo, family stressors blah blah blah, turned 50 in December BAM. Had a heartattack during my stress ekg at my cardiologist's office. I woke up in the cath lab anyway you get the picture....I am commiting to checking in everyday. And moving. I only do 2 16hr shifts now since my MI. So I have the time. One downfall I'm in Phoenix and right now it's a averaging between 110-118' everyday. Nights gets down to 100' but coyotes are out then so I'm working out the logistics as I go. Cheers!

I've never run a step. Just downloaded the app and completed my registration now I am trying to get motivated to take that next step: put on my running shoes. What time do you find it best to run? I work full time and have 2 kids so my time is usually not my own. Any words of wisdom and encouragement would be deeply appreciated. When can I expect to achieve that "high" that I hear so much about? Very quickly I hope because I fear I will fizzle out!
