Planned a pretty full day with family so didn't do Day 3 ... thought I'd get up this morning and finish it off. I didn't get up until 11:00 ... and I'm having a "slow" day today. I've learned that if I have a full day planned I either need to exercise in the morning BEFORE or it's not gonna happen. So, tomorrow will finish off Day 3 and then will begin Week 4 immediately. Learning, learning, learning.

Just finished this yesterday after a sweaty weights session and it felt great. I'm feeling really strong and with the exception of some knee discomfort, I feel like I can keep going! Taking it nice and easy - walk @ 3.5, jog @ 5.5, incline 1.0.
I finished Week 3 on Saturday. I did day 2 pretty well, but adding in that extra interval was tricky on the 3rd day! I did it, though! I'm looking forward to getting on to week 4, but slightly nervous...I tend to get shin splints, so I'm just going to take it slow. I WILL complete this challenge this month!
Just completed wk3/day 3. I am very optimistic yet cautious. When I complete this program, I will determine my next step on running. I will become educated as i do not want to fall into injuries. I'm looking at completing 5Ks in a walk/jog mode. If I'm feeling it, I would love to just jog a 5K. One day at a time.

Got through Day 1 of Week 4...still not easy but I know I am still at the tip of the beginning of this. I did make a tiny improvement over my last run/jog so I'll take it. The biggest thing I have learned is how much is involved mentally and not just physically. I am understanding my spouse's runs much more now.

You are doing awesome and congratulations on your accomplishments thus far. I am a pretty seasoned runner and I still have runs that leave me shaking my head with discouragement. Just this past Friday I was to run 12 miles but had to cut it short a mile because I just couldn't handle it mentally. Two weeks ago I ran a flawless half marathon. Struggles are an important part of running as its those times we learn our most important lessons. You are doing GREAT!
