    I downloaded the podcast last night. This is my third try at this. I love the podcast it was way better then what I was doing before. The bell rings and you switch. LOVE IT and the one I downloaded was really good high energy music. It seemed like I was walking and running to the same beat.
  2. I would try Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone. This is the workout I started with in my home then I moved it outside. I live in Wisconsin so in the winter I do the DVDs and in the summer I go outside for the fresh air. She has many DVDs but the first one I bought was the 5 workouts in one DVD. Then you can choose to do a different one each day. Nadine
  3. Oh man I haven't been on here or completing my runs. First it was the stitches and then July 3rd I was playing volleyball and threw my back out. Now I know I sound like I am making excuses but I swear to you this is what's happening in my life right now it's one thing after the next. I also on July 5th started a new part time night job which is when I would run at night so now I am all screwed up and my eating has went out of control as well. I need some but kicking right about now and some ideas on how to get back on track. Please be gentle with me LOL!!!!!
  4. Thanks for the information on both topics. Nadine
  5. Okay I had a couple of problems last night trying to do W4D2. First of all my chest was really sore sorry to the guys that are on here but I had a sports bra on and it was very painful I did keep going but all of a sudden out of no where I caught a case of side stitches so I read somewhere to put your arms up and take some deep breaths well I did that but they remained so I walked the rest of my time but noticed that even after the walk they remained. Don't know what I did wrong that has never happened to me before. I am bummed but am going to try again tonight. Nadine
  6. W4D1 done. I went back to week 4. I did struggle on the 5 minute runs but did complete it. It's been cool here in Wisconsin perfect weather for running. It felt good to be back. Nadine
  7. Well I did one day and didn't complete the rest I have no idea why I am in the funk I am in but I am going to take everyones advice and start at week 4. I walk mostly everyday I just can't bring myself to run in this heat we are having. It's getting a little cooler out now not as humid which is good. I never ran in 94 degree weather I find myself just wanting to live at the pool and don't really care about nothing else. Well this coming week it's going to be high 70s so I can get my ____ back on the wagon. Thanks to everyone for the advice I am going to take it I worked to hard to start at the beginning. Nadine
  8. I completely fell off the running wagon and restarted last night back at the beginning W1D1 wow it was super easy compared to where I was. I think the 20 minute run scared the hell outta me I never completed it just went to 10 minutes runs. Well back to the basics and starting point. As long as I keep going and don't quit I will be okay. Nadine
  9. I am back after a few days gone. I had a huge graduation party weekend to do so I stopped right around 10 minute runs so I think I will start over at the 8 min runs seems safe I don't want to injure myself. I went out and got a pedometer and today I used it for the first time but I walked and after like 345 steps it stopped counting. I don't know what happened maybe I set it up wrong who knows I will figure it out. I missed last weeks WI also so I have to get back on track and I started today. Nadine
  10. W6D1 complete. I did not make the 20 minute run last week but this week I will do it. I don't care how long it takes I will keep repeating if I have to till I get to that point. Last night I had no energy at all so my question is what is the best thing to eat before you run? How much time should you wait when you have eaten? Should you eat something small after your run? I felt like my legs were going to give out last night and it was only the 8 minute runs last week I was doing 10 minute runs. Go figure. Nadine
  11. Well I walked my first 5K on Saturday. It felt really good to do that now I can't wait for the next one. As I was walking I was watching the runners in envy because I so wanted to run but I surely am not ready. I am up to 10 minutes but missed my last run again. Next week will be better I know and maybe by September I can run a 5k The Komen is coming up then that would be fantastic and make me feel victorious. Other bad news I gained 1.2 this week sucks but I deserve that 1 pound for being a little piggy. Nadine
  12. I have heard people start off slow what they do is walk for 30 minutes but they will run a block or from point A to point B also if your not ready to start off with the C25K right away. It is hard the first day but this is my second time around which was easier and also now I am up to 10 minutes straight running. I started running at 197 pounds 50 pounds overweight and if I can do it anyone can. Nadine
  13. Did W5D2 but I ran 10 minutes instead of 8 and I felt great. It was a breeze I am so excited about that. Tomorrow is D3 we shall see how that goes. Nadine
  14. Did W5D1 over tonight and you were right I didn't miss a beat the first run was a little hard but then after that it was okay. Nadine
  15. Restarting W5 tonight didn't get it done last week. I did however take a hike and play tennis which was great but I feel bad that I didn't finish my week. Nadine
  16. Havent been able to do W5D2 as of yet it was raining raining raining. If worse comes to worse I will just repeat it next week. Nadine
  17. W5D1 is complete I mixed it up though I did 5min then 3min then 5 then 3 like that the whole time with 2 minutes walking. 5 minutes is rough I am not going to lie but I did it and I am moving forward. Lost 1.2 this week. Yay. Ate like a PIG for memorial day though. March on. Nadine
  18. OMG W4D3 done I had so much energy it was great today. Tomorrow is weigh in I hope it goes well this week. Nadine
  19. W4D2 complete. It was hot out but I did it. Nadine
  20. W4D1 complete my daughter went with me this time. She did better then my sister but by run 6 I flew past her and she had to catch up with me. She's 18 people. Then I said well next time and she was like NEXT TIME????? It was funny. They keep dropping like flys and I keep getting stronger I am not going to lie it's hard as hell but I am doing it.Now my sister wants to ride her bike along side of me. What a whimp!!!!! Bob great job it does get easier I promise. For me the stretching before hand really helps and also I invested in the best shoes I ever had. You have to figure out what type of foot you have and then look up the shoes that match that is what I did and if I didn't have these great shoes I think I would be in pain also but stretching is also very important. Use your computer and google everything you find tons of information. Everyone has their own individual stride so I just run and don't think about form just yet. Nadine
  21. W3D3 completed on Friday It was rough again something about Fridays but I am upset I gained a pound. Booooohooooo Nadine
  22. I did complete W3D2 just forgot to post it. Today is W3D3. I was running W3D2 in the rain. Now picture this I had my new MP3 player with band on my arm my phone that I use as a stopwatch and then it starts pouring. So as I am running my 2 minutes I was pulling my MP3 off to put it inside my sleeve and I dropped my phone in the mud. It was crazy but I completed it. When I got home my face was beet red. Hopefully today the rain holds off till I am done. Nadine
  23. W3D1 complete. The MP3 worked like a charm I love running with music it's way better. A little sore today but not too bad. Nadine
  24. Congrats SheriK I hope someday I can do that myself. For now it's train train train. My daughter bought me a MP3 player with arm band for mothers day I can't wait to use it. Tonight is W3D1. Nadine
