W4D2 down. Deided to take a stroll down the Ohio River front on the pedestrian path today in the direction I've never been. I made an interesrting dfiscovery. HILLS! THis was quite difficult and really really burned in the calves. Based on weight lifting experience, I think i pushed myself beyond the safe point and think I'll veer away from hills of that magnitude(159 foot rise accoiding to run keeper) until I've completed the program. Fortunately no injury ( fom that ). Naturally an hour later I blew my shoulder out on a lift. I can still run though<G>

Week 4 is in the books. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I felt confident in my ability to complete it so I upped my pace some and pushed a bit. Hoping to help get a stamina jump start for next week.Time to knock it up a notch with W5D1 on Xmas day. I think I'm ready for week 5 but D3 is still haunting me, HAHA.

Azatol, Great job so far. The program does an amazing job of having you ready to take the next step, and W5D3 was something I was dreading for about three weeks leading up to it, but it's also the most accomplished feeling I've had in the running I've done over the past six months. I felt more proud of finishing that 20 minutes than I did my first 5K. It's a huge milestone, and one that I will not forget. Keep up the good work!

Wow. I kinda just disappeared huh? About a week ago I was banned from the forums. I've been writing and begging Zen folks to tell me what I did wrong but alas, most of them were gone for the holiday ( oops ). Today, someone finally got to my issue reviewed my posts and rsponded. Turns out I've not been a bad boy at all. The ban was a mistake. I theorize this happened when I reported a spam post. I think they banned me not the spammer LOL. Glad to be back and cleared of the ban. it was a real morale crusher. Fortunately, my resolve is stronger than ever this week......

 

Yesterday, I did W5D3 and knocked it out of the park. Took a nice slow comfortable pace and dug in for the long haul. Before I know it, I'm being told to walk. Still had some gas left in the tank. I now have zero doubt whatsoever that I can complete this program and begin working on increasing my pace. 5 weeks of stress over nothing LOL. Piece of cake and a pleasure at that. Now if my knees and ankles can just hold up, I'm golden. They are pretty solid. Lifting helped me there.

Hey Azatol,

 

Welcome back. There were some posts from your name that were total spam, but then we saw your posts that were great too. I emailed Zen and asked them to look into it as it was hard to tell which was spam and which was not. Glad to see you back and kicking some butt. Love you on here. I really like your posts. You too Shannon. These forums rock. Happy running everyone.

That's bizarre. I don't know how it's even possible. I'm positive I'm not selling ED pills, LOL. It happened the exact day I clicked report on those spam posts in general. /boggle.

 

Glad you folks figured out that I'm legit and let me back into the playground. My motivation is to run and run and run, and run <G>

I was a bad boy today. Work was horrid. This is my rough time of year. I went to Plaet Fitness just to walk 30 mins to finish out my 10k steps for the day and blow off some steam. My legs had a completely different plan. So, um, 30 minutes later, having run most of it including some sprinting and my legs arer shot. I could cook an egg on my quads right now HAHA. I guess tomorrow's run and workout are officially moved to Sunday this week <G>

 

Hmmm. Interesting how my life changed in 2014. Back in the day, an asccident men i tore up an entire Little Ceasars pizza. Now an accident is I ran? Heh.

Ha ha Azatol. Youch. Did you heal ok? Egg on the thigh??? Lol.

 

You are doing great.

Oh I didn't hurt myself. My shoulder is blown but it's from bench and overhead push presses but it doesn't prevent me from running. I'm always inured somewhere on the upper body. is the life of a lifter when you lift heavy and aren't in your 20s (by many years). I just pushed myself hard in blowing off steam. My legs feel like gumby after he got run over by a truck. I'll take tomorrow off to heal, run Sunday and still have my 3 workouts this week. I never miss one. I do have a very cold week coming up. Well, the 20s are very cold to me. Gonna see how I fare. Will join the YMCA for a month to use the indoor tracxk if I have to but I will run and it won't be on a treadmill.
