It's not just you.
I signed up a while ago, but haven't officially started yet. I keep forgetting to walk according to this team.
Anyway, all last Spring and Summer I sucked it up and walked most every day with a friend. We'd worked up to three to four miles a day and we did it in less than an hour and a half. Then the snow came...
I walked when I could, but not regularly at all. I regained the 15+ lbs. I had lost and it has WRECKED me! I took my dog Tuesday morning. We walked 2 miles in an hour and ten minutes, but he did have to stop every ten feet to hunt and stuff. But I felt so slow. I thought I was good and loose when we got home, but two days and a couple of hot bubble baths later (plus a LOT of stretching), I'm finally not hobbling so much around the house. My calves were screaming!
I'm going to go tomorrow, and I've committed to go every day, alternating 1 and 2 miles. I really need to jumpstart this weight loss. But I'm not going to worry about my time for a couple of weeks until I'm back in "stride", so to speak.
I just wanted you to hear from at least one more person who is challenged by this program. But I have to lose 170 lbs, so I can't give up. You'll do fine, but take care of yourself. You don't want to be sidelined completely.
I can't wait to see how we do!
