Finally got a chance to stop in here and read this.
Go, kitten!!!

My dil started a progam called 'couch to 5K' last week.
I'll tell you what I reminded her.
It takes 3 weeks...just 21 days to make a habit.
If you train every day for three weeks, it'll become part of you and your body will literally crave it.
I know because I'm going nuts not being able to get out and walk every day because of the bitter cold. I'm only getting out half as much and other exercise just doesn't do it for me the same way.

Keep going! We're all here cheering you on.

That is what I'm starting with too, Truffle. I had started it last fall, but something shiney went by and I stopped.

Because I went public with my goal, and some generous people have already sponsored me financially, I can't NOT go through with it.

Thank you for your encouragement. smile

Week 1, Day 1 of the Couch to 5k (C25k) yesterday. It wasn't too bad.

Warm up with 5min brisk walk, followed by run 1min, walk 90 sec, for a total of 8 runs. Cool down for 5 min. Granted "run" is used loosely, but still.

I feel good! smile

You can use "run" as loosely as you want! You're doing it and that is fantastic!!

Week 1, Day 2: Complete. A little tougher this time - the first time was beginner's endorphins or something.

Next run/walk is Friday. smile

A good friend of mine did a 5K this past weekend for childhood cancer. He thoroughly loved it, finished it within 3 minutes of his goal, and is chomping at the bit to do it again.

Good luck to you! You'll have a great time!

Kitten, I've been thinking about using the couch to 5k, but I've been putting it off & making excuses. I've always thought I'd like running, but I guess it sort of scares me.

So.. you're gonna be my motivation. grin Thanks!

Thanks Ops. smile

From what I've seen, the C25k really eases you into the running. And truly, if I can do it? Anyone can.


Thank you, Cupid AG, and thank you RR Joker. smile

I am excited for all of you: beginner, intermediate, and experienced runners alike! Warmer weather is just around the snow-and-ice-covered corner... cool
