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 48- Mrs. F

I woke up feeling okay. Muscles a tad bit sore but overall they felt fine. I had a day of errands to do, so my fleeting thought of an extra workout today was gone.

I ended up out a good bit of the day-- shopping for our household. I noticed this evening now that my right knee feels funky. It hurts a little bit on the inside of the knee. Im hoping it just needs some rest, so Ill take it easy tommorrow.

Keep on running
Mrs. F


  1. I saw your post on the coolrunning site and I'm very jealous that you are running so much faster than I am! 2.25 in 25 minutes has me beat!

  2. That might have included my walk -- i dont remember now lol. Besides i dont have any hills! I really doubt, that Im running any faster than you are!

  3. It didn't include your walk, but the exact distance may be a bit spongy. You doubled back for me numerous times, and you covered that extra bit at the park end, too. You're definately in the ballpark.
