A personal note: +When you

are trying to increase your distance, some days feel good and others feel

awful. Listen to your body. Be willing to back off. There is no hurry. These

schedules are designed for the best possible circumstances, and sometimes you

just need more time to adapt. Never move on to the next higher distance until

you feel totally comfortable with the one you did today. I can remember once

doing the same mileage for three weeks before I felt I had the strength to add

a bit more.+

 

 

I have many more tips and personal stories to

help you be a better runner, to safely enjoy the sport, to eat properly and to

help you select the right kind of shoes, clothing and sport bras.

 

 

I encourage you to buy my book.

    Thanks for starting the new thread, Carla.  I don't have any tips on preventing face redness - that happens to me also and it's embarressing in certain situations because people think I'm dying or something.  I'm always like 'No worries, it's just a red face.'

     

     

    1.What Week/Day are you on? W6D1

     

     

    2. How do you feel? Real good.  I'd actually like to add a 4th day but don't know how to go about doing it.  Maybe when I'm done with OHR that will be my next step

     

     

    3. Have you had to repeat a week or day? No

     

     

    4. Did you add time or remove time from one of your runs? No

     

     

    5. Do you notice something different about yourself yet?  Yes, my thigh muscles are starting to ge more definition and they feel alot stronger.  Not to mention the cardiovascular benefits and heart rate is not as high as when I started.

    Week 2 day 1 done. Had no trouble completing the time. Can't wait for week 4 when it starts getting harder.

     

     

    1. What Week/Day are you on? Week 2 day 2

    2. How do you feel? Good

    3. Have you had to repeat a week or day? No

    4. Did you add time or remove time from one of your runs? I have added time before not on OHR yet

    5. Do you notice something different about yourself yet? I am on a weight loss program and I have finally started loosing more weight after a plateau for a long time.

    Hey guys,

     

     

    I had a great run today. I did it finally. I broke my Mental barrier I ran 6mph on the treadmill for the whole 30 mins. But then I said to myself I can do it I am gonna fo for the full 3.1 Miles=5k. I am ready for my 5k I know I can do it 31:00 to do 3.1. I am so happy. I know I could have run faster at the end but I was definitly tired.

     

     

    Week 2 day 2 done. I am really happy doing my runs. It feels so good to succeed at this.
