    This is something I can do. I like the gradual increases in time. - 2/23/2010 10:31:18 AM
  • Right now i'm not able to walk long . When i'm able hopeful again SOON its nothing for me to walk around my block at 3 times. - 2/11/2010 5:39:45 PM
  • I had to go to california when my dad was sick and my brothers car was in the shop so I was forced to either ride a bike or walk to the hospital or nursing home he was in. The hospital was 4 miles there and the nursing home was about 2 miles there. In the 3 weeks I was there I had lost 20 lbs. Of course I was eating low fat foods. I know this can work. - 2/9/2010 10:45:55 AM

  • As someone with some health problems, walking is about all the exercise I can do. This is a very good plan although I may take longer to reach the brisk walk than others. - 1/7/2010 6:30:30 PM

    At my current fitness level, I think walking is about all I can handle. I want to build up some endurance. I should be able to do this at lunch. - 1/7/2010 5:24:46 PM

    When my mom gets here I'll start. She is one of the few that understand where I came from (I had a stroke 2 yrs ago). She'll be here in just a few days and this is just perfect for me. I think perfect for her too! - 12/4/2009 1:07:47 PM
  • I go to the gym 3x a week, sometimes 4 for 1 hour and 20 minutes, but I am serously thinking about to start runing in the morning in the days that I don't work out....good luck to me : ) - 11/11/2009 8:36:16 AM
  • Thanks Coach Jen,

    I enjoyed this. I am taking over The Virtual Walking/Running Challenge from Coach Nancy, so this will come in handy for new members.

    Thanks for all you do.

    I've been walking my dog on my map trail for over 6 weeks now. Our pace and route are entirely chosen by her, so the aerobic value is minimal, (sniff grass, walk a few steps, sniff animal prints, walk a few steps, sniff... well you get the picture) but it's a good warm up for me. I now plan to walk mid-day without her and step up the pace which means I'll start somewhere towards the quarter to mid-range of the 12-week program. I'll back off if it's too much, move forward if not enough. - 9/24/2009 12:55:15 AM
  • I'm going to begin the walking program. I will start somewhere in the middle because I'm already walking 20 minutes a day. - 9/9/2009 12:33:02 PM
