Way to go on starting! Running isn't easy, but whatever you do, don't give up. It will get easier. I just read an article today about the time it takes for running to get easier and everyone is different so if you can't complete a week of this program, don't get upset. Do the best that you can and before you know it, it will start getting easier and you'll be running 5k's.

Finish week one. It was fun and had no problems doing the work out. To day I will start week two. I hope by July the 6 I do my first 5k run event. I used to run these event when I was younger but that was long time ago.

Let me first say that I admire both of you for "getting off the starting line!" Strangely enough, if you embrace it, this plan actually gets easier and you will find out you have it inside of you to achieve more than you ever imagined. Just holla if you have any questions! SCool runnings!

Kelli it is challenging, but only do what you can. Finishing is better than stopping. When I first started to run at 226 lbs. I could only run a minute and would run out of breath, but each day I ran outside I would mark a landmark and shoot for it, going a little farther each day. Now actually using a running program I find it really does challenge me. I could only do 4 sets today, but I am going to push harder next time. Keep it up. Good luck!

So today I will do my first day of the program. Previously I would do 1 /2 minute run at 5 mph and walk for three minutes. That was hard so i can only imagine how challenging this program will be.
