I started the Couch to 5K running program in April and finished it in June. It was walking/running 3 times a week with the distance/time gradually increasing until you can do 5K (3.1 miles) nonstop. I have kept running about the 3.1 miles 3 times a week since then and ran in my 1st 5K race on July 17. I have injured my heel (probably from not stretching enough) but hope to run in another 5K race in October with a lot better time than I did the 1st one.

I am doing the 100 Pushups challenge as Strength Training 3 times a week. Same principle as C25K; increase until you can do 100 in 6 weeks - I am starting week 4 this week.

I do not do an SP-created fitness program - I just do the 2 activities above and add some Core Strength Training Exercises and sometimes some Dumbbell exercises. In addition to the running, I do a lot of walking and bike riding for cardio, usually adding enough to whatever else I have scheduled for the day to get my goals of at least 15 miles a week mileage on the Fitness tracker and 40 minutes a day of Cardio. I wasn't aware that SP would include biking in the mileage so I am above goal on mileage (over 640 miles since joining SP in March).

I don't really know anyone in this, our "home" team, primarily I think because I did not find the team at first and joined it at least a month late (maybe more). I have been active in other teams, especially the C25K for Beginners but guess I just have not had common ground with anyone here :(

I was just wondering how everyone was incorporating exercise into their daily lives. What exercise are you doing? Are you following SP fitness program or doing something else?
