W7D3...check! Only 6 workouts left before I "graduate." Then I have to figure out what to do next.

I def plan to keep it up and think my first 5k is going to be Oct. 8th, but what I love about this plan is that it gives me structure. I need that. So that's what I'm stressing about. Any suggestions?

Still limited to cardio only and even that's becoming a struggle now, especially walking.

There's a juniors Tai Kwon Do tournament on at my gym. I wish I could do that.

I killed it at the gym today! I warmed up on the arctrainer for 12 minutes then did about an hour of full body strength training. Wrapped that up with 10 minutes of stretching. Later in the afternoon I went for a 2 mile trail walk. I feel great!

Yesterday, walked around the park and went up and down the cement bleachers 20 times.

This morning, I was at the gym by 6:30am. I warmed up on the elliptical for 10 minutes then did about an hour of upper body weight lifting.

Yesterday, I did W8D1. It was pretty interesting. I had full intentions of killing it because, a) I really didn't have any trouble with any of the 25 min. runs in W7 (in fact, I ran a bit longer than that each day), and b) I'd had such a crappy day at work that I thought for sure it would be a great stress reliever.

Wrong on both counts. The whole workout was pretty much torture...hated every second. I sooo wanted to quit. I guess the good news is that I didn't.

10 minute warm up with Just Dance 2 on the Wii, 1 hour of lower and core strength training. I will try to fit in a walk later today as well.

40 minutes on the cross trainer and 30 minutes on the bike. I think I'm beginning to prefer the cross trainer more than the bike now.

Still no weights. MRI on wednesday so I can find out how bad my back is.

curlylaura, I hope the MRI will show something positive.

W8D3 rocked! I was supposed to run for 28 min. At the end of that time, I had run exactly 2 miles. I was feeling pretty good and have been wanting to try 3 continuous miles, so I figured WTH, might as well give it a go. So I upped my speed because I also wanted to do it in less than 40 min....39:58.

ETA: I really can't believe I'm running for 40 minutes straight...didn't think it was possible.

BTW, I love your avatar.

Went for a long, challenging (to me) hike on Saturday. Up and down the Appalachian Trail to Lonesome Lake. It was gorgeous and tiring.

W9D1 on Tuesday.
W9D2 today.
Both days were hard. I'm a little baffled since days 2 and 3 of W8 went so well, but my butt is kicked.

One more day and I graduate. To what I don't know, but I graduate.

Well my back is now so painful I am going to have to give up the gym membership until I know what's wrong and get it fixed and I have no idea how long that will be. sucks but there we go.

I'll still pop in to check on everyones progress and cheer you all on though!

Well, I finished C25K today. W9D3 was fairly successful...not the best run I ever had, but not bad at all. I feel as if I finished on a good note. I'm proud of myself. I never thought I'd be able to run that long, ever. I'm reading "Running for Mortals" and found out some valuable information about why your heart and lungs feel so good so quickly, but your muscles and especially your bones, joints and tendons take much much longer to feel the same effects. It made me feel better about my lack of speed and reinforced the fact that I just need to keep plugging along at my slow, steady pace.

Thanks for all the encouragement....you guys rock!
