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 10 (Week 2, Day 3) - Mrs. F

Thankfully yesterday was a day of rest as far as the workouts are concerned. My body definitely needed it! I must admit I was not looking forward to todays workout at all

It was hard today. It was better than mondays workout but most definitely not easy. Its a bit mind boggling to think of week 3 and 4 if its already hard. The one thing I have going for me is Im determined. I want to lose the weight and I want to run and surprise my kids -- so thats what keeps me pushing through this.

Overall leval of hurt/pain was okay. I had a bit of strain on the side of my ankle up into the leg but thats about it. Im feeling it as I go up or down the stairs and my energy leval is a bit down today. The energy leval could do with lack of sleep and busyness of yesterday.

Keep on Running or walking

Mrs. F
