    Christina....let's do this! I am starting week1 day 1 tonight but my theory is as long as we are doing it together then that's awesome. I'm using an app for droid called rundouble...but there are others and also for iphone which are all similar. I'm sending you a FR so we can support each other while we do this :) I'm new to this stuff but doing something is better than doing nothing so I'm starting at the beginning :)

    I completed day 1 of C25K on Tuesday, I'm combining it with strength training and pilates at the gym. I'll update every session with my progress and together we can support and motivate each other :happy:

    Week 2 Day 3 DONE!

    Days 2 and 3 were pretty rough on me. I am wondering if it's because I gave blood (double red blood cells the day before day 2. Whatever the reason, push through it and move on! Today I ran through a light drizzle (yes I did!!).

    Week 1 ended with a 5 lb weight loss. I can definitely see a difference in me and in my conditioning. It is AWESOME to be able to run. I am so excited. I LOVE THIS!

    CBJFan did you do day 3 today?
    Kelly awesome! How are you feeling so far?

    I just finished Week 3 day 3.

    I'll be going on a two-week vacation in a couple of weeks, so I won't be ahead for long.

    I think you will love it. I've told myself (and everyone else) for over 50 years that I don't run. My legs are too long, my feet are too flat, my belly is too fat....

    However, when I saw the results that others were getting, I just had to try it.

    Like every week when I finish, I'm daunted by what is ahead, but I got through week 3 and I can't wait for Monday to do week 4.

    Add me to your group if you'd like!!

    ohheyitsfelic- the results are nice but depends on what type of results you are looking for. I have been shedding pounds but I’m also keeping in my calorie range and running or walking 6 days a week.

    lamDoe – I DID do W2D3! I actually intended to start W3D1 last night and I did run but it was so late I didn’t run outside and so I did it on treadmill and forgot to turn off a setting on my app so it didn’t tell me when to run and when to walk SOOOOOO I made my own (ha ha…had to man!) I ran and walked two miles so I will officially do W3D1 tonight!

    FitnessBarbie how awesome about vaca!!! Where are ya going???? I have a two week vaca coming up in June so I hear ya on all that! I did NOT intend to run either…for me it became a matter of math…I can burn more calories in less time (and the time was important because I get bored doing anything for too long I’m afraid) so you kinda just “fall into it” but gotta say it feels really good and I feel like I have accomplished something I never thought I could do when I get done running.

    Overall on this C25k journey what I can say is I really do love it and OMG how great it feels when you feel yourself getting “stronger” and you are not huffing for air and you can recover more quickly. I couldn’t be more thrilled and I’m no small girl….I’m still at 182 so if I can do this then I keep hoping that the sky is is the limit 

    Let’s do this….we CAN do this C25k thing!!!!! I’m SOOOOO GRATEFUL FOR THE SUPPORT…thank you thank you thank you <3
