Well, I bit the bullet the morning and signed up for the virtual 5k race of Sept 20-26. I'm not going to win any medals for speed, but it will be a wonderful feeling when I finish. I almost typed if I finish, but that's the negative thinking I'm working to overcome as much as finishing the 5K.

I finally signed up for a virtual 5K for the week of September 6-12. So far it looks like I'm the oldest one signed up, at almost 75 years. I figure I'll make it to the finish line, but who knows what my time will be. I don't seem to be getting any more "fleet of foot" thanI was when I started training for this. My little dog will be walking the race with me. It'll be fun.

Finished Week 3 today. Walked 2.25 miles in 43 minutes. I lost 1.2 pounds last week, so I think the walking is helping. I also make sure to track my calories:)

Wise choices each day will get me where I want to be.

Week 3, Day 3 complete. Sunday begins my fourth week of training.

I am happy that the 2.25 mile walk took me only 45 minutes and that I was able to complete it at all.

Week 3, Day 1. 30 minute walk.

I walk/ran for 25 minutes. But I actually ran! It was not a jog, but an actual run. I have not been able to run in years without the fat in my abdominal region causing pain (from shifting).

Registered for a 5k next week! I am up to 13-14 mins per mile. I can keep that pace up for 4 miles. Since the 5K is only 3.1 miles, should be a piece of cake. I am adding some jogging intervals (2mins every mile or so). I am concerned about injuries so taking that slowly.

Hi all!

After a stressful day I am getting ready begin week 3 goals for walking. I walked more than 3 miles yesterday, but not all at one time.

I will try to walk 2 miles before today is over, but if not...I will start in the morning.

Hello to all,
I am "technically" finished with this week of the walking program. With all the stress of last week and the stresses of this week I have decided to take it out when walking. Sunday I walked 1.55 miles in 40 minutes, Tuesday I walked 2.8 miles in 58 minutes, and Wednesday I walked 3.1 miles in 69 minutes. I am to walk some more this week to add onto my total,so on Saturday or Sunday I will post with my finished results. I am trying walk at least 3 miles so I can get more miles and start feeling better.
I wish everyone the best of luck while completing this program. I hope that you have great success. :)

Week three over and finished. It is getting easier. Im constantly surprising myself with how far Ive gone, and reminding myself what I was capable of before all this pain stuff started happening. So week 4, and with two weeks of sight seeing I see absolutely no excuse why I cant fit it in!

The weather is not cooperating with me to allow walking outside. Been having to do my long walks on the treadmill which is not my favorite way to do it. The weather people say we should have some dry weather later in the week. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed they are right.

Week 3 Begins with determination, excitement and LOTS of pats on my back (from me!) for seeing Weeks 1 and 2 through to a "T"! Still not sure if I'm cross-training correctly, but I don't just take them off, either.

Wishing everyone success on your Week's challenge!

Great job. I just took a short 30 minute walk 1.6 miles to the supermarket with a friend today. Had to get ice cream for my hubby and of course got some for me, Ben & Jerry's 2 for $5. I will have a small bowl 1 cup/2 servings for my snack.

I started back to grad school and got sick in the same week. Unfortunately, I chose to stop walking for two weeks. I started over last Monday on Week 3 and will start Week 4 on this upcoming Monday. I hate going backwards, but I will not give up!

It's a beautiful day here! I slept late, but still got my walk in, and didn't melt while doing it! Finished up week 3 today! 2.25 miles!! It's been ages since I walked that far. And, I feel great, jelly legs and all! emoticon
