I just got started today. I wasn't able to finish the whole 30 minutes. Hopefully, I will do better tomorrow. I feel wonderful.

I started today as well and did the full 30. You can do it. The thing that keeps me going is if I have music in my ear. Apps like songza or Pandora are helpful. See if you can find a station with upbeat tunes or just type in workout and see what you find. I hope this helps.

I'm starting today when I get home from work. This has been a trying year for me, as I was diagnosed in Feb with breast cancer, so I'm getting back to "normal". I plan on taking my dog with me for company.....ha ha wish me luck!

I'll be starting today just need a shake for lunch first. When's a good time to eat (shake) prior to running? I'm not much of a runner and I haven't been to the gym in over 5months. However, I've decided to complete three races for 2015 - Tough Mudder in Whistler for the month of June. Mud Fun in Red Deer in August and finally the Spartan Race in September. Any ideas on other training tips to get my body marathon ready?! TIA :)

Hi Tina, 

 

Happy for you and Welcome on here.   I don't drink a shake before I run, I drink one after.  All that sloshing around too will slow you down.  Have a light protein snack and have a shake later. Plus, you will burn more calories too...

 

You can do it!

I'm starting today. I just finished six rounds of chemo for breast cancer and need to get some strength and endurance back!

I started today... My first attempt at exercise in over a year following surgery. Any indication what speeds this should be done at to ensure 10k is achieved at week 14? I walked at 5.5 and jogged at 10.5. Thanks

Hi Cassiecat,

 

I'm sorry about your cancer. Hope you are doing ok. Hugs to you. Proud of you for starting this today. I am thinking about you and cheering you on. Keep us posted.

 

Hi Sharon. Every treadmill is different so I'm not sure how fast yours is. Because on mine, I walk at 4.5 and run at 6 and that is fast. So on mine a 10.5 would be road runner, lol. Yikes. I'd fly off of the treadmill at that pace. If you feel like you are running at a good spend, then it's perfect for you. Proud of you. Keep us posted.

Hi Brenda.

 

I usually use an app running in the background that tracks my mileage. Start that app first , there is one called MapMyfitness or Runkeeper, etc...., when I tracked it, it was about 1.5 miles I think. Hey, by the way, congrats to you. You are doing great. So proud of you. Keep it up and keep,us posted. Hugs
