Couch to 5K Progress

Life with Bubba, Chicky and Nika

So I am still on track!  I have been motivated to continue and it gets easier with every workout!  THANK GOD!!! LOL

I just started W4 yesterday!  It daunted me on paper….5 minutes of running (x2)!  I have looked at it for the first three weeks thinking “I will NEVER be able to do it!”  Well I DID!!  I CONQUERED! 

It does get easier with each workout!  I am still in the basement on the treadmill because quite frankly it isn’t safe to run outside in Iowa in January!  Ice, snow and winds…not to mention the below zero wind chill!!  I don’t need a broken leg or ankle because I HAD to run outside! 

Then, amazingly enough, on Saturday, Joe asked me to print off the schedule because he wanted to start as well!  YAHOO!!  So while I am a few weeks ahead of him in training, he is going to do this with me! 

Still on the road and loving it so far.  I actually am looking forward to my runs AND I have lost almost 5 lbs since I started!  Getting there.  By the end of next week I am supposed to be able to run 20 minutes at a stretch… that is daunting me now, but I know I can do it!

I think you're doing GREAT!!! Though I live in FL and the weather is fantastic this time of year, summers are murder and NO place to run - I want a treadmill, toooooo!!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

Okay, I sort of got off track with the running already. This is the encouragement I need to get back at it. Good for you!
