Welcome! Just stick with it and have faith. My last ten took as long as the first fifty! :-)

Reached my goal November 2009!

Check out the couch to 5K program. It is a great way to bring you along slowly from not running to running. Definitely rest a day between runs.

I am getting close to my goal weight and it is coming off slow!! I exercise for 30 minutes every morning. I use tapes and alternate between aerobics and strength training. I follow that with 12-14 minutes of yoga or etc for my back - I have a bad back and have for 40 years. Then I use my inversion table for 7 minutes. I have started walking for 2.2 miles twice a week. At a fast pace. I would love to start jogging but have been too worried about my knees. But sneak in a little jogging for short periods.

Hope I can learn a lot from this Team. Want to be a member for a long time emoticon
