Trust me when I say that your knees can become better as you embrace the lifestyle. As one who lived at maximum density far too long, I found the proper balance for the cardio, strength training, and fueling properly. As you progress, you will see what I mean. There is a wealth of knowledge in the team on Jeff Galloway's methods & proper training! The team is always sharing. I wish you all the best.

Embrace the lifestyle!

Hi KELCOT!

What a great motivator - a trip to Disney and a 5K!

Many of us on this team love using Jeff Galloway's training method which allows us to run further without injury and with energy to spare.

Do you have any of Jeff's books? He does have a 5K - 10K book that might be both helpful and motivational while you train.

Also - here is a link to one of Jeff's blogs in answer to a question about running when one is overweight.

Congrats on making the decision to do a 5k. I did my first one in May. It was a color me rad. I highly recommend that one. I had always dreamed of running one. I wasn't able to run it but I did it anyway. I did walk really fast though. I too am very over weight and am now working on prep for the dirty 30 mud run zombie edition. This will be in October. Having a run you are excited about helps with the motivation.

You cant get the butt you want by sitting on the one you have! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can reach my goals if I do the work and trust that He will help me.

Hi all! I'm Kellie from Western Kentucky. I have about 60 pounds to lose...I've been off and on Sparkpeople for a while now, but the motivation and support always draws me back.

I am registered to do my very first 5K during the Tower of Terror 10 miler weekend at Walt Disney World in October. I basically signed up to give myself a reason to get up off the couch and get going. I knew a 5k here at home wouldn't do the trick, but my love for visiting WDW would! Our reward for completing this will be a 6 night stay and visit to the parks.

I was a little worried about how I was going to start running. Being overweight I have bad knees, tendinitis, and plantar fasciitis that flares up occassionally...i had no idea how i was going to finish a 5K, I just decided i would. I came across Jeff Galloway's method on the runDisney site and immediately knew it was going to be the plan for me. When i started, it took me 30 min to walk a mile. I'm in under 20 now. My intervals are still in the "seconds" range, but I am getting better and growing more confident. Someday I may even enjoy running! :)

I am anxious to hear your advice for new Galloway style runners and excited about finding this group of motivators and running buddies!
