    You guys are doing awesome!  ChupChup - congrats on knocking out Week 5, which for many is the hardest week of the C25K program.  It's all downhill from here, because your mind has already turned a corner.  Awesome!

     

    Don't forget that you can update your progress with the chart.  The link is in the very first topic on the boards.

     

    Have a great week everyone!

    2013 Goals: Run more. Smile while I do it. Complete 2 marathons in a year. (1 down, 1 to go)

      Thanks for the shout out.  Worked on my core and upper body today.  I hope everyone has fun running this week.  It's hard to believe that it will be summer in a month!

        hmmm, I get a broken picture frame thingy instead of the chart.

         

        I decided to move toward a longer run on the weekends, so I did a 4 mile run/walk yesterday.

        I had then planned on a treadmill wk8d2 today, but I decided to give myself a day of rest, since ... well, my butt is killing me! Smile 

        In a good way, I think. The run was hilly yesterday, and I definitely worked my gluts!

         

        I took the kiddos for a long walk today.  Pushed the stroller up Sister Bay hill, and kept thinking, "this is my butt getting stronger.  This is good for me. ouch." Big grin

        Keep building the base.

          Did you go to this link?  (form for updates)

           

          If you did and it's broken, I'll need to figure that out, because I'm seeing the form even when I'm logged out of Google docs.

            No, I did the update a while ago, and that seemed to work fine.

             

            On our homepage, I don't see the chart anymore (the one showing where we are in the program)

                Gotcha.  I saw that, too, when you mentioned it.  I logged into Google Docs and logged back out and could see it.  Weird.  Do you see it now?

                  Yep, the graph is all good again.

                   

                  I woke up early to run and talked myself out of it Blush

                   

                  Gonna walk to work instead, which I really enjoy. 

                  Oh well, one more day of glut recovery.

                    Ran W6D1 on the trail with the dog.  Wow was it cold this morning.  Wish I could run in the afternoon instead.  I hope everyone has fun running this week and this it warms up soon!

                      Great job, Chup.  You're really making progress, only a couple of more weeks now!

                       

                      I don't share your wish that it would get warmer, ugh, humidity here in NC is killing me!  It was a bit cooler this morning as a light rain fell while I was running, but it will be back in the 90's by the weekend.

                       

                      Jenn, walking to work, I envy you now.  I live 12 miles away, biking distance except this is not a bike friendly town.  No shoulders on the roads here, I'll continue to partake in the car madness!

                        Ran 30 min straight this morning, OUTSIDE! 

                         

                        I am SO excited!  I paced myself nice and slow and steady.  It was about 47 deg F and drizzling.  I felt so good finishing up, my neighbor told me "lookin good!"  He's a retired coach, almost 80, so he meant this in an encouraging way, not a creepy checkin-you-out way.  Although, I probably would have been happy either way really.

                         

                        So, no walking to work this morning anyway, since I had a home health visit to do (I need my car at work for those). It's about a mile and a half, uphill, and is a great walk usually.  I really notice how much easier that walk is now that I've been running.  

                         

                        Also, since I'm being all yay-me right now: I've lost 24 lb so far, since February.  I have about 45 lb more to go. I'm using Weight Watchers online, and I'm liking it pretty well.

                             Jennxpt - Nice job on the outside running and weight loss!

                             

                            No running recently for me due to a crazy family schedule.  The family will traveling to Chicago this weekend, so maybe I can get an early morning run on the treadmill at the hotel.

                             

                            I hope everyone has a great weekend!

                                Go Jenn! That first 30 minute non-stop run feels great and I'm sure is the start of many more. Congratulations on the 24lb loss! 

                                One day I decided I wanted to become a runner, so I did.
