ORIGINAL POST:

Today is Saturday and I am actually going to start NEXT Sunday (I like beginning on Sundays for some reason) March 28th for W1D1.   If anyone wants to join during this week too, I'd LOVE the company/support/motivation.

 

I am a SAHM of 3 (11, 9, almost 2) and just turned 40.  I have attempted c25k a few times but have been sidelined for various reasons.  I have been walking and have been in the gym of the past week and a half and am ready to set a date to start, once again. I want to just walk for about another week before I start W1D1.  However, just starting this thread will hold me accountable!!    I also want to lose about 15-20 lbs and hope that this will help with that goal as well.

 

So who is out there wanting to start sometime soon as well???  (I was a lurker for about a month before I said a peep - I know you're out there too!!!)

    OK - sounds good.

    I've been wanting to start  - I actually get out and wind up walking for the most part still.

    So your idea sounds great!

     

    I'm 41 - single mom of 2 teen girls. I work shift work, currently on nights.

    I've been working out w/other women at boot camp and that trainer () has had me running!! And I've actually been able to do it! a lil...

     

    Will you be starting out outside? or in on a TM ?

    I plan on starting next week as well.  I have never really ran at all or any distance. My wife is an avid runner and has convinced me to sign up for a couple races so I wanted to make sure i don't embarrass her or me. i have started walking this week with light jogging and decided to start 1st week of April.

    I'm in. I'm a fresh face here. I found this site while searching for forums to research buying a pair of running shoes. This program is just what I need, I am starting a running program to be able to pass a police physical of running a mile and a half in 20 minutes. I am 42 years old and am shooting to get into the police academy here in Dallas TX. The age cutoff is 44. I am a big guy, 5"10" 250 so this is gonna be tough but I know I can do it.

    I started yesterday but would love to join this new thread!

     

    I am 32 and a SAHM with three kids (8, 6 and 22 months).  I am very over weight and have never done anything like this before.  I run will run in the evenings when my partner is home to look after the kids, outside and in the dark!

    I'm in, I always seem to catch threads like this after they started so I am glad to get this one when I did. I have started the C25k many times but this time plan to finish. I want to do a run in October across the Mackinaw Bridge. I plan to run outside weather permitting, otherwise I will be on the treadmill.

     

    I am excited to get started now.
