AnnMarie, I absolutely love your attitude. I wish you luck with your training, and encourage you keep on not caring about how fast you are running. Slow and steady is the path to a lifetime of running.

Oh, and there's no such thing as "only" 1 min run 2 min walk for 10 intervals. That's 10 minutes more running than you were doing the day before yesterday. And it's a great start.

Congratulations, and good luck with your plan. Keep us posted.

You should be proud of yourself for taking on the challenge. The feeling you get from crossing the finish line......there is NOTHING like it in the world.

good for you, keep us posted.

I may attempt to run/walk a 5k in August. I am going to be starting Runner's World 8 Week Beginners Running Program and see how it goes. Luckily there is so much time before August that if I need to repeat a few weeks I can. I am going to do them outside whenever the weather permits. Yesterday I did my first session...it was only 1 min run 2 min walk for 10 intervals but as I live in the hills it was up and down hills which adds a little intesity to it. I have dabbled in running over the last 4 yeras but have always gotten bored or sidetracked but now I have a goal to go for so hopefully that will help. I am so slow but I don't care, I'm only going for consistency first..speed comes later.

"You don't have to eat a perfect diet to be healthy. You will not suddenly get a nutrient deficiency or gain weight from one snack, one meal, or one day of eating. It's what you eat consistently over time that matter. Progress, not perfection, is what counts." Principle 10 of Intutive Eating -
