I’m starting tomorrow! I’m going to hit it hard for my mental health! Not good weather hear either but I think I’d prefer outside 

How did it go? I did Week 2 Day 2 today. I felt pretty good but I need some help with stretching. My calves get very tight...

Just bought a new one so I have no excuse not to do this! 

That is excellent! I just replaced an old one I had. This one is a Pro Form. A little fancier than the last one. Same principle... it has a belt that goes round and ya walk on it lol

Still here and still training. For the most part I have been keeping up with my schedule. It has been a journey. Still keeping my sites on running an entire 5K and I believe I'm on track. I don't get here on the forum quite as much. The weather here has warmed up and that means doing things that have taken a backseat during the winter. Camping, backpacking and motorcycle riding... I'll keep checking in and seeing how everyone is doing. Just a little more lurking than posting going on these days. The turnover on the board seems to fit in with people completing the program, and this makes sense to me. You can always give me a nudge or message me through the forum.

Best of luck to everyone and remember... a mile is a mile, no matter how many minutes it takes to finish! ;)

Hello! Just getting going with the app. Right now the weather here isn't fit for running so I am on the treadmill.  I purposely restarted week one. Trying to make sure I am adapted before I move to the next week. This is all very new to me but I am determined to succeed!

I'm just starting today. Hopefully you are going strong and ready for your first 5k. Do you have any tips to stay on track and motivated?

Hello Susan! Here is the one thing I have learned: Be patient! All of this takes time and sometimes I get frustrated. When that happens, I reach out to someone I know. To keep me moving I started listening to podcasts. Some are really good, others not so much lol Music is great but I need to change it up so the podcasts are nice. I won’t let myself make excuses. There are days I want to sleep in but I literally say outloud “get yer butt out of bed. It’s only a half hour”. Of course some days are longer but in general 30 minutes of hard work is sufficient. 

If you need to vent, or talk or want a little motivation it helps to be accountable to someone else. You know what you need to do, but talking to someone else helps! You can always hit me up here or send me a direct message! Hang in there, you CAN do this!
