sounds like you are doing great! You don't want to push it though, so be patient. emoticon

I am going with my dog that has two speeds, power walk and super speed! So, I start out by going about a power walk speed but doing the jogging motions like arms up bent at the elbow and he gradually increases my speed. We are flying by the time it is time to walk again :) I will need to work on him a little as well otherwise I might burn out too quickly! Thanks for the advise, I will do my best. I really want to be able to go out runny with my husband, he's a lot better at it then me, but two basic trainings plus all the other military training will do that to a person!

emoticon It took me three times to finish the program myself! And when you start running for longer periods, there were times I was running slower than I power walked, but it's the motion that you are training your body to do. Do not worry about speed for a long time!

Thanks! I started the Couch 2 5K program on Monday. It wasn't too bad and they say to take it at your pace, so I will keep going with this. Thanks again! I am writing a blog on here and will post about how it is going on there as well

emoticon emoticon to the Team!

there is a getting started program on SP. Look for the guide to running. Or google couch 2 5K. there are a few programs there. One gets you running a 5K in 9 weeks, there's another that takes longer which might be better for you w/ your hips.

I would think your hips are bothering you because of the stress of the extra weight and hopefully this will go away when you lose it.

please note, you might gain weight the first few weeks of running, this is normal. You body will be retaining more fluid to repair muscles.

Hello, my name is Kelsey and I have been wanting to start running for awhile now. My husband is in the military so I would love to be able to keep up with him when he goes running. I have some iffy hips and I'm am over weight. I am hoping that as I lose the weight my hips will get better, I am only 23!!! so there shouldn't be an issue with my hips. Anyway, any ideas for how to get started with running, I currently walk my dog 3 times a week for about 30 min to 1 hour and 30 min. I was thinking of running for a block walking for a couple blocks running another block etc. Would that help?
