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 60 - Mrs. F

I am a bit sore in the leg muscles today. I can tell its because I worked them really hard yesterday. I don't seem to be in the type of pain that indicates injury--just usage!

I'm feeling the lack of sleep today though. I didn't get to bed til 10:30, so I'm dragging a bit more today. It also could be the busyness of the week and it catching up to me.

I've been thinking more and more about one hour runner. The 60 minute end run of that program scares the snot out of me. Just as thinking bout the 30 minute runs of week 9 at the beginning of C25K scared me too. I remember thinking that I can't do 30 minutes but I can run for 60 seconds and I did. The beginning of one hour runner is 30 minute runs -- I can do that too!

Im excited for the weigh in tommorrow. If I lose 2 pounds exactly, I will hit the 10 lb mark and be 1/3 of the way through my goal. I dont expect to lose 2 (after all my goal is only 1) but I'm secretly hoping that just maybe. So likely next week for that!

Keep on running ,

Mrs. F
