Hi BEJAI,

I looked at the coolrunning site on your post and it looks like a great schedule for getting you started. I think that when you first start to jog building speed is not as important endurance. I know from experience that the speed will come later in any program that you follow.

Three positives to remember when first starting a running program.....#1 you will burn more calories in less time (and distance) then a conditioned runner due to the level of exertion you are performing at. #2 alternating between running and walking is an excellent interval training method. This burns more calories and is the quickest way to reach your fitness goals compared to just running at the same level for the same amount of time! #3 you are running girl, does it not feel great?

Good for you!

Hello team!
I'm brand new to Spark though not at all new to the struggle. I'm hoping this time something will 'spark' in me I'll be able to get going. I signed up for the gym so I'd have access to a treadmill since I can't run outdoors in the cold or heat, I have Lupus. I am following the C25K www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml
challenge and surprisingly not having much trouble. I've had no trouble at all with my knees which pleases me immensely! I just completed week 1 but I want to do it again because I had trouble keeping up with the runs so I'm still not sure if I did enough. I'm thinking about making an abacus so I can count my runs to be sure.
I walk at 3.2 to 3.4 and run at 4.0 to 4.2. Can someone tell me if this is a good pace, particularly the running. It's more of a trot since instead of a speed runner I am good with distance.
