    Where have you been WG?  I have been looking for you.  LOL

     

    glad to see you posting again.  I did a mudrun recently but it was all women and it was a fun run, not a tough mudder run.  I'll stick to the fun ones.  LOL

    Re: 200+ Pound Club!

    Well I've graduated C25K today, with mixed feelings, by jogging 5.4kms. I had finished week 9 by jogging for 30 mins some weeks ago, but that was only 3.5kms as I am slow as a trickle. Today's jog was mainly on grass & bitumen, avoiding cement as I've been getting a score knee since running 30mins +. My knee pain is occuring when walking stairs & down hills.

     

    I would love to get my speed up now & be able to jog the 5k in the 30mins, as opposed to 42mins. I'd apprecite any tips from the 200+ Pound Gang on getting faster times & treating knee pain issues, so I can keep on keeping on with my new lifestyle activity of jogging.

    Ok so I an totally new to this thing called running. I tried (emphasizing the word tried) c25k. I am motivated and excited to start but when it was time for my first jog (w1d1) I was already feeling the shin splints. Any suggestions about how not to get these evil splints right away. I did finish the workout without the jog but I did continue to keep moving until the end. I am now in the process of icing. Please help I don't wnt to quit.

    Hello,  I just saw the thread title and since I am 207 currently decided to join.   I am a pretty active mom of 3 kids,    I work out usually about 3x a week at a local taekwondo studio and am working on earning my supergreen belt.  Since I started taekwondo last year, I have lost about 40 pounds through exercise, no dieting.   One of the ladies at the TKD studio decided to run a 5k in July and asked for people to sign up with her.  So being slightly crazy I have agreed to join her.   Slightly crazy since I hate running!   This Saturday I plan to walk a 5 k with maybe a bit of jogging.    My goal is to be able to run 1.5 miles by July when I do the 5k with Julie.   I also would like to be around 175 lbs.  but not overly worried about that.

    Thx Wideguy,

    Got a physio band made from wet suit material & it's working wonders. Squats will be easy enough to do as well to build it all up.

     

    Cheers,

    Clint

    How do I even get started running?  I can barely walk without getting out of breath.

    Thank you for the encourgement! I did the 10k in my woggle style (walk/run/jog)! I was so excited, my time was 1.51. Not as bad as I thought it would be. I have already signed up for the half for next year. I am down to 241 from 261. To everyone who needs to start, it only takes that very first step, after that the next very first step...have a wonderful walking/jogging/running expereience!

    Hi Everyone!

    I just found this thread.  I'm from NJ, 46 and just started running back in March, and started with the C25K app.  I'm SO slow...basically a 15 min mile, give or take.  I'm running my 3rd 5K this Sunday.  In February, 2014 I'm running the Disney Princess Half Marathon, and my sister wants us to do the Las Vegas Rock n Roll MARATHON in November, 2014...I don't know about that...I may just convince her to do the half marathon...will see after the Disney one.

     

    Anywho...I'm glad I found this group!  I always feel alone when it comes to being the weight I am and a beginner at running.

     

    Can't wait to chat and get to know you all better!

     

    Susie
