Hey Sara, here's to a new week. Got back from a hell week, dealing with my mother in law's passing, and sorting out her things and cleaning out her condo, all on the opposite coast, while my 10 year old had the flu out here on this coast. I didn't have the energy to track my calories, or do any exercise, but I'm not beating myself up- it was what it was. And now it's over, thank goodness. Anyway, nice to see you making some commitments, good for you! Marsha 1951 days ago
Sara, thank you for the comment you left on my page. It looks like we have the same goals and we're the same height. I hope to be part of your support team as well. Have a great week. Denise 1957 days ago
Sarah, Welcome to your SparkPeople Official 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program and congratulations on your decision to RUN! My love for running started one day in June 2009 while I was out walking. I grew very bored with walking and decided to break into a jog and immediately loved the feeling. My life has changed in so many ways since that day. I started running at age 50 after never being even remotely close to being an athlete. I am proud to say that I am now a runner! I am a Jeff Galloway runner which means I use the walk/run interval method. I run for two minutes and walk for 30 seconds using a timer called a Gymboss.
It is my hope that I can help all of you in the beginning of your running journey. As I found out, there is so much more than simply lacing up your tennies and heading out the door. If you want to run for years to come, you will need to ease into your running gradually in order to remain injury free. That is where this wonderful program comes into play. It is designed to allow your body to adapt to the rigors of running that it will experience.
More than anything I want you to simply have fun with running. Once you experience that first 5k race you will be hooked! You will come home after finishing and look for another 5k to sign up for. Trust me.
Good morning! Nice job walking the 3 miles the other day- I am hoping to do that today- it's going to be warm (for northern Vermont) so I can get out and walk. How are you doing giving up soda? I am addicted to diet soda, but am trying to limit it to one can a day. I love seltzer, so I just have to make the switch. Now I'm trying to just snack less, my daily report always show that snacking makes up a majority of my food. Have a great Friday! 1959 days ago
