    Good luck! I'm starting a new program today, too. I committed to a Half Marathon on August 21st, and a 5k on July 4th. Having never run for more than 15 minutes, I have a lot of work to do! But I'm looking forward to it and loving the support I've seen here. Have fun!

    Good luck! And remember to keep running fun. If it starts to feel like work, mix things up a little bit with some cross training or something. Don't get discouraged and listen to what your body is telling you.

     

    Have fun and don't be afraid to ask questions as they come up.

    Finished my W1D1 about 2 hours ago.

     

    My last couple running sessions were more along the lines of a fast shuffle, but I did it!

     

    I kept telling myself "Just make it to the next street" or traffic sign, or even mail box, but I did it.

     

    W1D2 count down started...

    I'm starting this week also -- good luck to everyone.  Just finished W1D1, and it went better than expected -- I'm usually the type who goes too hard the first day of a new program and can't walk the next day.  I'm actually looking forward to day 2

    I hope everyone is doing well this week!  I got through week 1 in good shape, but then came down with a nasty stomach bug over the weekend... today is the first day I've felt able to exercise, so I'm going to do one more Week 1 workout, then move to Week 2 on Friday.
