Re: I DID IT!!!!!

Thanks Timl2k10! I will check that out too. I do need to transition to running outside since almost all of my running has been on my treadmill. I did my last run outside and it was quite a shock for me. The weather is getting colder now so this may be more difficult, but I will manage best I can. Ke...

Re: Roll of honour 

Name: Diane Area: Ohio I finished this program and am now able to run 30 min, albeit very slow. I will be working on increasing my speed and distance so I can start running 5k races. Right now my distance is only about 2.3 so I have some work to do! I can't believe 9 weeks ago I could not even run f...

Re: I DID IT!!!!!

I finished the program! I am running for 30 minutes, although still slow, but I am just amazed! Now I will incorporate some faster intervals during my runs to get my distance and speed up. My distance for 30 minutes is about 2.3 miles so in order to do a 5k I need to do some pace work. Any suggestio...

Re: And so it begins

Congrats to you Flyboy! I know how hard you have been working for this. You should be proud! The longer runs, at least to me, seem to go by faster each time. I begin w8 on Monday, 28 minute runs and am looking forward to it. Good luck on your runs- you are doing great. I hope the weather clears for ...

Re: I DID IT!!!!!

W7R2 done! And it actually seemed to go lots quicker than the first two 25 minute runs. One more this week and then on to 28 minutes!

I DID IT!!!!!

I finished wk 6 with the 25 min run. I cannot believe I am able to do this. My distance was 2 miles! I was happy at 1.5 miles. The last few minutes were rough but I stuck it out and I am so glad I did. It will make next week much easier knowing I have already completed the same run once. :D

Re: And so it begins

Fantastic! I did my w5r3 20 minute run today and it was GREAT! I didn't even have to slow down, although I am not running very fast, 4.2 mph. The last 5 minutes were rough, but I managed pretty well. Loving this program! :D :D :D

Re: And so it begins

Awesome! I feel a lot of the same things. I begin week 4 on Wednesday . I feel pretty confident about it, but beyond that week it scares me. But I am not going to stop this time. I want to be a runner. I think by the time we get to those runs, our confidence will be up because we will already have d...

Re: And so it begins

I ran w3r2 yesterday and was surprised to find that it just felt like it was over so fast...and not a struggle. My legs felt like they just wanted to keep going. I hope this feeling sticks around as the runs get longer. I am a little nervous for next week but mostly excited.
