skatardrummer Posted July 27, 2016 Report Share Posted July 27, 2016 Hi, I am new to running. I just started with the C2K app today. I haven't worked out in about a year....I'm gone 12-15 hours a ay for work and doing school 3/4 time, ick. But I've gotten very very heavy and I am tired of it. I have a malaborption issue for multiple iron, B12, Vit D which can only be treated medically (not otc), but now that we are getting back on track in that regard with injections and junk, I'm starting to feel better and I want to get back into shape. I only made it through the first 20 minutes of the (very) slow jogging and fast walking, but I suppose it's 20 minutes of activity not on the couch and on day 1! I used to play soccer in high school and was in really good shape, but I've never been able to run more than 2 miles nonstop, and I think a lot of that had to do with running wrong. I want to improve and get better at this, because running seems to be one of the best forms of exercise for people that are extremely predisposed to extra weight even with diet and normal exercise. I've known a lot of people who have gotten fit with running, maybe never stick skinny, but fit and enjoying life. So that's my goal for now, fitness. My schedule and finances are sort of forcing me to cook everything for myself now and never eat out, so that's a bonus too. Lots of fish and veggies which I like anyway I also snagged a pair of Nike Zooms 50% off today on the DSW clearance rack. It is nice to meet all of you. I look forward to learning from you.
