Thanks! I am encouraged - I was inspired by the older contestants on Biggest Loser this Fall and by reading The Accidental Athlete. I don't want to go fast, but I want to say I ran a 5K. I am shooting for running the local race around town this year. I think it is in April.

Welcome!! Yes, please feel free to repeat the weeks as much as you want. The important thing is to allow your body to adapt to the rigors of running. I did not start running until age 50 and I am still rawr'ing LOL. Like you, I am enjoying the upper Midwest winter so far. No snow!!!

Hi - I am NEW to running. I am also 47 years old. I want to complete the training plan - but feel that I should proceed slowly to avoid injury. Is there a way to stay on each week for more than 1 week to get my body used to running? Can I just repeat each week until I feel comfortable enough to proceed to the next stage? I'm a corgi - not a greyhound... Also, I live in Iowa - we've been having a mild winter so far, but we're probably going to get slammed with major blizzards soon. Any ideas about what to do when the weather is too bad to go out? I want to make a plan ahead of time. :)
