    I ran the full 2 miles today :) I ran the 2mi in a little over 27 minutes, which I'm totally happy with. Slow and steady! Tomorrow is an "easy" 1 mile, and I know I can manage that, now!

    @cmhubbard92 , well done on running the full 2 miles! How did you come up with your running schedule? Is it C25K? Is it a Garmin thing? Did you find a program online? Just curious. One day I hope to run again, but in the meantime, I will be living vicariously through your running achievements!

    @HASWLRS I've been having trouble uploading images in the community for some reason, but my running plan is through my Garmin! I set up a 10k running plan, with an end date of July 3, but I can edit and extend that date at any time!

    I have four scheduled days for my runs so far. Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Sunday is generally my long run, and the rest are varied.
    The first week was just a benchmark run with a five minute warm up/cool down.

    Week 2:
    Sunday: Negative Split Run (2mi easy, .75 faster, .25 even faster)
    Tuesday: 2mi easy
    Wednesday: 1mi easy
    Friday: 2mi easy

    Week 3(current week):
    Sunday: Negative Split Run (same as week1)
    Tuesday: 2mi easy
    Wednesday: 1mi easy
    Friday: 3mi easy
    The training plan adjusts based off of my progress, and I get feedback like steps per minute, average pace and heartrate, etc. For example, next week is showing cadence drills for next Tuesday, and is giving me a goal of 150spm based off of my current speed/workouts-that will be interesting. I really like what I'm getting out of it so far!

    The one thing my plan stresses is that if it's too much-walk, and only do the planned running to avoid injury. With c25k, I always found myself rushing through weeks, increasing distance too quickly, and injuring my feet. I'm following my workouts as planned, but trying to run more than walk, which is why today was such a happy moment! I know there will be workouts where I'll have to walk, but I'm ok with that as long as I'm progressing!

    Thank you, Christine, for the insight. That is very interesting that Garmin can set up a program for you based on the parameters you give it. It's a Vivoactive, you said?

    Hi, I'm Sandra, 55, from Richmond, Virginia. My husband and I are empty nesters, with two grown daughters. I try to walk/run about 3 miles every day with our border collie puppy. It's been wonderful lately with the spring weather. My goals for this month are to exercise 6-7 days a week, eat 1250-1350 calories 5-6 days a week, and keep protein 20-25% of daily intake. I really need to add strength training 2x a week and sit ups...but want to get the rest down first.

    MUAC for 4/4:
    Tracked: yes
    Under: no
    Exercised: yes - 3 miles walking

    MUAC for 4/5:
    Tracked: yes
    Under: no
    Exercised: yes - 3 miles walking plus 20 minutes throwing balls at dog park with the pooch

    Good for you, Amber! You had a slight uptick on the scales so you tightened up your logging and food choices and came in with an under!! String together a week of these and you'll be heading back down on your next weigh-in!

    CW 141.4lbs

    I have only ate a few mini eggs, and look where it got me!

    Normal service will be resumed asap!

    @prehistoricmoongoddess Life without a few mini eggs now and then isn't worth living. You'll be fine. :)

    yesterday was pretty much a loss - fitness wise. I ended up with fever (101.6F), headache and body aches as a result of MAKING ANTIBODIES following my Covid vax on Monday afternoon. Happy to report I'm feeling much better today, Just a little achy and tired. back to business soon!

    @annabananamc Way to go on those antibodies!!! Glad the vaccine is working and that you're feeling better today. <3 I get my second shot next week and have already decided to cancel my normal up at 4:00AM to workout routine the next day. I plan to sleep in, get some rest, drink some Gatorade, and let my body do its thing. That's more important than an early morning spin class.
