Thanks Suezette. the Arthritis is limiting and the medication is difficult to combat weight with. Between menopause and medication It is difficult to lose weight but the 1`7 dd has been amazing as I am losing where I haven't lost on other diets. I used to run as a young adult, (I have had the arthritis since I was twelve Knees, feet, hips and back (al left side) are the problem when running but my recovery day is so good. anyway I will keep going.

Week 2 is finished for me, just have a rest day tomorrow. Was able to increase my TM speed up to 11:30/mi for those few precious run minutes. Had a lot of knee pain earlier in the week--it has now decreased to tolerable level (I always have some pain from previous injuries) and I find that to be both wonderful and exciting! Cross-training on a few of the off days include the elliptical and walking. This whole program has been a god-send, can't wait to start the next week.

...successfully completed my day2 of week 2. As I was told earlier at this forum changing my shoes made a big difference. There was no pain in my hips at all after the workout...

Week 2 is all done! Bring on week 3. This is so awesome.

Today is a cross training day and I'm going to walk my husband's 5k practice run. Just want to get a handle on how long a 5k FEELS. He runs that course 4 days a week.

I can't wait til I am able to run it with him.

Good afternoon Team!
I was on my way to finish up week two today, but I injured my ankle playing basketball yesterday and don't think I will be able to complete this weeks training. I'm only looking at this as a minor setback and will be back in the swing of it when my ankle heals up.

Hello! I did Couch 2 5k at the beginning of this year - it was really tough but I made a few adjustments, extended a couple of weeks and I did it! I maintained for a few months after that and started on trying to go a little faster (rather than farther) until my hips starting hurting and then I slacked off for a while... so now I'm sort of starting over with the 5K Rookie program and I'm on week 2. Luckily I haven't lost all of the endurance I had built up so these first couple weeks haven't been too difficult - whereas I remember the first time around, my lungs were burning!

Just wanted to share that these programs can/do work. Good luck everyone! You're doing great. :)

The thing with new running shoes is that you have to break them in for the first couple of times so I would recommend walking with them on your off days till they feel comfortable. Just to let you know that I have flat feet so I was recommended stability or motion control shoes. Lastly if you wanted to get an idea online on what running shoe to get Runnersworld.com has a shoe finder part to the website on which running shoes they recommend.

Thank you so much. I've been considering getting a new pair of running shoes. I will look and see if I can find any stores that check my gait. I have been walking for about a month while trying to do this program especially when my leg starts hurting.

TO NIKIEKENNEDY: I use to have shin problems when I ran before. It prevented me from running in the past. I found that having the right pair of running shoes helps a whole lot. I received my pair from a running store that check my gait and pick out a variety of shoesto choose from. I picked the one that I felt must confortable with. Also before starting this program I walked for 1 and 1/2 months so that my bones and muscles can work up to adjusting to the impact of running on my legs.

Finding Week 2 very difficult. Keep haviing shin pain. I've added reverse calf raises to my exercises hoping to help this, but can't seem to get in the 4th and 5th jogging set. Going to keep trying. Any advice would be welcome.

At least you are starting over!! That is what counts, is that you are trying again.

Isabella, I am thinking that I am going to repeat week two as well. Week one was super easy for me, but week two has been a struggle. Better to repeat it, than to get frustrated enough in week three to give up, is how I am looking at it.

It's ok to repeat days or weeks.
Another thing you can do is slow down some. This program is to build up your endurance. Speed will come later :)

Week 2 was actually difficult for me, too. Only day 3 of it was surprisingly easy.

I felt better today and I did it. It was so easy today. I think that two days of full rest did the trick.

I can hardly believe I did week 2 day 2 and had so much fun. Too bad I got a bad cold and couldn't do day 3 . Now can't wait to start again!
