    was curious to see if i *could* do it (plus i wanted to play around some with my nike+ gizmo Clowning around)... today was my "off" day, so i made sure to just walk it out....did it just under 52minutes (pretty pokey, i know Blush) played around too with the incline settings (changed it up every 5minutes). pretty pleased to know that if i had to, i could do it. Smile Now to keep plugging along so that someday, i can actually *run* the distance! lol


    Needs more cowbell!

      Start walking it, then gradually run a little, then a little more, then a little more...soon enough you will be running it all...then 4 miles, 5 miles.... Big grin k

      I shoot pretty things! ~

      '14 Goals:

      • 6 duathlons (1 Olympic distance)

      • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

        Congrats! That's a great confidence booster, isn't it? Now... go find a 5K race that's a few weeks out from when you hope to finish the c25K program... and sign up for it! You'll know that if it's too much you can always walk it... so there's no excuse not to try! Big grin

        Roads were made for journeys...

          Hmmm...I think the Seaway 5k might be well timed... Wink k

            I think this is a great idea!

            When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
