I just completed Burn week 1. And I am also in the beginning training for my first Marathon. I could not make my distance run this week because my legs were so shredded. They are absolute dust. I think I got about 3 miles in and that was it. My legs just felt like they could not do ANY more. Anyone else having this problem?
If you want to be what you've always wanted, you have to give up what you've always been.
I am doing CLX too. I started Month 2 - Push Phase - on Tuesday. I ended up doing Burn Phase twice due to back injury in January. My results the second time were better! It is great...just remember to use proper form and if the knees bother you, follow the modifications. Enjoy!

I probably not as avid runner as you, but I did find that doing chalene extreme really helped me with my running and made me feel like I was less likely to get injuries and had less pains from running (back, knees, etc.). Good luck. I started a second round but kind of petered at the lean phase which I thought was the best phase. I didn't do the cardio with the program, just ran 3-4 days a week.
Hi everyone! I'm Raine. I'm an avid runner, but with a knee injury sidelining me from running for the next 6-12 weeks, my ortho suggested I do more strength training to keep my leg muscles strong, and so that I dont get lazy about my workouts now that I cant follow structured race training programs anymore. I started doing TurboFire in November to supplement my running, but because that is pretty high-impact with all the jumping I was told to stay away from that for now too. I really felt motivated by Chalean, unlike other dvd personalities like Jillian Michaels who just annoy me, so I decided to suck up the money and try out ChaLEAN Extreme. I got through about 2 weeks before work got super crazy and I missed an entire week of workouts, so this past Sunday I restarted the program, this time taking measurements, weighing in, and taking the dreaded before pictures! I'm already loving this program though. I feel so much stronger already, and because I do it early in the morning (think 5am) before work, I find I have so much more energy throughout the rest of the day, and I am not craving food from the vending machine anymore, which is good! I've never followed any sort of dvd program like this, but I am hoping this team will help me stay accountable and on track! Looking forward to seeing fantastic results, especially with summer and bikini season right around the corner!
