Thanks for the words of encouragement. I'm going to try very hard. I don't hink I can keep up with the Jeff Galloway schedule but maybe modify my own. That is what gets me down...like today I was scheduled to run my long run but then had to work at my second job..Now, I'm exhausted and don't want to run..I usually get up early in am and run...I will go get on the tread mill though.
Hi and welcome to the team! So glad you've joined us. It would be easier for me with a running buddy too but I don't have anyone either. I live in a small town in southern NM. I have one buddy I met here on SP that's working on her running now too but she's 50 miles away so that isn't much help as far as running together LOL. But I do know what you mean. Just hang in there and keep working at your own pace and you'll accomplish more than you dreamed!

Loved the team name: Believe in "Wind beneath my wings" and now I'll apply it to "Wind beneath my fee.t".
Getting back in my groove and trying to train for HM...Jeff Galloway's approach but it is hard to keep his schedule and still exercise with 3 of my group classes at our local Y. But I'm trying. Would be easier to have a running buddy but I live alone with my 11 yr old dog, so it really doesn't bother me. Know a buddy would keep me up, when I'm down...I'm an educator so looking forward to the summer and 1 year until I retire....YEA!!!! YaHOO!!! Then, my time will be my time..until I get another career or p/t something.
Looking forward to reading about all your journey's and sharing mine.
