New to running!!!

Recommended Posts

I started this in February and re-did weeks 1,2 a number of times. I’m now on week 5 Day 3 and nervous about finishing it. 

I signed up for a 5k May 11 and my goal is to do the best I can. 

I’m 63 and a lung cancer survivor. I had a upper lobectomy October 2018 so breathing is a challenge.  

My short term goal is to run the 5k and build my lungs up.

You are very inspiring. I think you can do this.

I have been on week 4 for 4 weeks at least, so I am impressed with anyone who can do week 5.

And I want you to know that, from my experience and experiences of the people posting here, it is absolutely no shame to repeat weeks over and over and over and over again. I think one's own personal health and stamina are a lot more important than a running program created by some random person who wanted to help couch potatoes run.

That’s exactly it to Silver. Tim, my cousin’s son who is my inspiration told me it took him a year to be able to run and now? That kid is incredible. Lost 100 pounds and man can he run! There was a weekend run with 2 groupings. A 5 mile and a 2 mile. He registered for both lol He was running with a race bib pinned to each of his thighs :lol:
