Horrible Run Today

OK. I finished the program at the beginning of July. I have continued to run 3 days a week since my completion. I run for 30 minutes on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 3 miles on Saturdays.

Re: Sticky: Introductions!

Hello. I just completed w1r2. I am surprised that I have been able to compete 2 runs. Actually, on r1 there was a point when I thought I would pass out, but thank God I didn't. Didn't feel like I was going to pass out today! Big accomplishment. I am 46 years old and overweight. I have always hated r...
