I walked a 5k in 2007 with some of my clients (they have developmental delays). It was a lot of fun and I would love to be able to run one someday!

I can't afford a gym that has a pool, so that's not really an option for me at the moment. I'm only paying $10 per month at my gym, so I'll make it work! LOL!

I can still walk on a treadmill - just not very fast. LOL. It's been better since my WLS four years ago, but all those years of extra weight just compounded the knee/ankle issues.

I can't do bikes and I'm inept when it comes to the elliptical. So I just walk at a steady pace. :-)

Good for you!Sorry 'bout the knees. That does make it tough. But the weight training is great too! I need to incorporate that soon. Good luck!

I'll never be a runner, thanks to bad knees (surgeries on both legs) and bad ankles (torn ligaments in both), but I do have to start exercising this week. My BF and I joined the new Planet Fitness opening in our town, and after several delays, they finally got their occupancy permit on Friday. Today will be our first trip over there.

Hi there, I "just" started running this week! I use my treadmill everyday, usually on walk mode set on random/interval with a max walk speed of 3.6 mph. I "upped" the max speed to 4.3 and alternate walking and running for a 30 minutes session, (running 1 1/2 min then walking 1 1/2 min) I've done this since last monday..everyday. I don't think i'll do a 5k.(what is that anyway), but i would like to eventually run in public. Good luck ..keep running, Chris
