Thanks! Report
thank you Report
Good article. Report
It IS doable. At 43, I ran my first mile a few weeks ago. Last week I ran 3.4 miles without stopping once. More than a 5K! I never knew this was possible, and I still cannot believe it. Especially at my weight and age! Report
Thank You...………. Report
Running is NOT my choice of activities. But I remember the military and they said it was the fastest way to lose fat, that is why they do it for at least 20 minutes. I like this 4, inverse 4. Army does 2 miles no matter the pace it takes to achieve it, then work up to continuous run for the 2 miles. Will try this. Just want to say I hate running. Gets no work done on the farm for the family. Report
I have done the C25K app but found that running consistently hurts my knees. I have good running shoes too. I plan to start back up soon to see if I can tolerate it now that I’ve lost more weight. I love the feeling that running gives me! Report
You may find need to slow this a bit, trust your body; but don't cheat yourself. As the transition progresses your walking shoes may not work for your run. They're fine to start, but you may find being fitted for running shoes a blessing. Enjoy the adventure. Report
Looking forward to starting off slowly. Looks like this is a good plan. Report

Getting ready to start training for a 5K that's happening in 3 months. This is a great way to start before actual training schedule kicks in - really excited to try it! Report
I am going to give it a try tomorrow Report
I've tried to get into running, but my medical restrictions on physical exercise have not allowed me to go more than 1/8 mile before my heart rate tops out at the maximum set by my doctor. I do walk a lot, and often in the 4.5-4.75 mph range sustained for about 15-20 minutes before I reach the top. For me, running is no longer an exercise goal. Report

I can walk for a really long time, but when I try running my legs hurt, I think I have shin splints. I'm gonna try this, hopefully it's gradual enough that it won't hurt so much. Report
