Here's the skinny: I've been near 300 lbs. for years and need to lose weight. I'm married to a wonderful lady, and we have a family. One of our boys often asks if I'll run with him. I've always had to tell him, "No." In August of '09, my wife learned about a couch-to-5k running program, and I agreed to try it with her. This blog chronicles our progress on that training program. I hope I'll soon be able to surprise my son by telling him, "Yes, I'll go running with you!"

Day 8 (week 2, day 1) - Mrs. F

Today was hard! I tried to pysche myself up for the extra 30 seconds by reminding myself of the 2 minute walk. It didnt help!

The first set was really hard and I thought this is crazy. I must say the 2nd set actually felt pretty darn good. I was more awake, my speed increased and I thought "Hey I might be able to do this!" Then we hit the 3rd set ....

It felt awesome -- not so much physically but mentally-- to say that I completed the first day of week 2. Its scary looking ahead at the next weeks and I think I'll never do that. But what I can do is do today and then the next running day. Literally take it one day at a time.

Overall physcially tonight, I feel pretty good. Not too sore or overly tired legs.
