I started the C25K program a few months ago but didn't make it very far before an injury sidelined me. The injury was an old one that flared up and left me feeling sorry for myself - so I quit running - but I am starting again TODAY!! As soon as I get off work, I am going for a 3 mile walk/run and will do that every day until I feel strong enough to run the whole thing. Perhaps in 3 months, perhaps in a year - but I will do it!
That's great!! Good for you.
Good for you Christine! Welcome back! Hope your walk went well last night!
And then I let it all go again. More "restarts" than I can count but I haven't given up hope or trying yet. So who knows what's possible.
What's the word? Have you been getting out there?
Wideguy and I are regulars on another set of threads in Newbie Cafe for runners who are at (or were) 200 lbs. +. If that description fits you, head on over. It's an active thread (we have a new thread each week), with people at every stage in the C25K program. Come on over and say, "Hi!"
It was my wife's idea--really! Okay, it helps that I need to lose the weight, too.
