Thanks for encouragement and I have started exploring some running information sites. I do run mostly on hard surfaces but I also need to do stretches after a run.
Today is a rest day

Does not look like anyone using the check in threads. I was visiting family and busy at work so completely off track so started week 3 again with 5k park run (did walk/run)but managed 38.05 legs felt really heavy and I think I would have given up if I had just been running around home. but so pleased I did it got me motivated to really keep running

Today is the start of Week 3 for me, Mondays & Wednesdays are my cross training days with swimming for an hour to an hour and 45 minutes then Zumba! in the afternoon. Weather is less than ideal to run so I've been balking at the idea of changing out.

Ok I'm on my week 3 but not started and it's already Wednesday. I usually go in the morning but I already didn't get out of bed this morning. Now I'm about to get ready for work and I'm feeling terrible that I didn't start my week 3. I need to put the effort to make it after work. :(

I am reaching my goal TODAY; EVERYDAY!

Well, it's been about 6-7 weeks since I have run. I am going to start back into this program at Week #3 where I was when I sprained my ankle. I have dropped a few lbs since I took time off, so I should be OK starting back at Week #3. We'll see how things go tomorrow.

I think I am going to be running primarily outside, but I plan to run maybe once a week or so, on the treadmill, in order to use that to help me increase my running speed. Again, I'll see how that plan goes as I get to it.

For now, I'm just HAPPY to get back to running!

Hi KRYSTIES4!

I just tracked my first run of week 3 and I have to admit that I felt great! I have tried to do this several times in the past, but just didn't feel the love. However, something is clicking this time -- may be the combination of new running sneakers, eating the right foods, hydration and warming up and cooling down.....duh!

I just signed up for my virtual 5K July 4th! Wish me luck!

When you do your training for week 3, come by this thread and tell us about your accomplishments for the day.
(Example )
How far did you walk?
How did you feel on the day you did it?
Or anything else you want to talk about for your 5k training for week 3

Lets support one another and cheer each other on.
