naumom57 Posted July 7, 2014 Report Share Posted July 7, 2014 Hi there! I am 56 years old and have finished W1D2. Very new to this. But surprisingly I am able to do it! I have never been a runner so maybe this will change. My motivation is two-fold....I need to hold off Type 2 diabetes, which all of my doctors have said it is not if I become diabetic, but when. I also want to look good for a family wedding in October. I am less than 20 pounds overweight, so this should really help. My biggest problem I see is going to be finding the time to run. I am a teacher and I can run now in at 6am. In Phoenix, Arizona that is important since our temps go up to 118 in the summer. I will be starting back to work by the end of July and I leave for work at 6:30. I don't know if I will be making myself run at 4:30...in the dark...in the city. It will be TOO HOT when I get home from work. So I may have to find a treadmill somewhere. Thanks for listening. I am looking forward to success. mycowsnz 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
