    Running is therapeutic for me mentally and physically. I used to run 30 to 40 miles a week and was down to a size 2. I just need to get control of my eating. Following a few injuries, I was frustrated, down and kept eating as if I were still running all the time.... Well, that's why I am in the situation I am in again....

    I am finding the runner's high again.... I love how running carves my legs, butt, arms and abs....

    I used to run too. I tried it a few weeks ago until my knees cried out for me to stop. I am going to take this approach. Thanks Mia.

    I've always wanted to be able to run for exercise although I always thought my knees were too shot from sports. I am going to give this a try, maybe I was just going about the whole thing wrong.

    I used to run everyday...and this is how I started too! It's great and I think I'll just have to do it again too! Because nothing works better to lose weight than running/jogging! Are you going to do this? If so let me know how it's working for you!

    Default just wanted to share

    for all the walkers/joggers or runners, i found this challenge for a walking routine called
    Learn To Run/Jog Challenge
    basically if you
    * want to lose weight
    * tone up
    * improve their general health
    * kick their fitness up a notch

    Learning how to run can sometimes seems daunting because people try to run too fast and/or for too long when they first get out there. They get put off easily and don't want to get back out there. However, for this challenge, you will only run 3-4 times a week for roughly 30 mins each session. The challenge lasts for 9 weeks and by the end of it, we should be able to run 5k (3.1 miles) in about 30 mins.

    The weekly plan is below:

    *start each session with a 5 min warm-up walk*

    Week 1: alternate jogging/running for 1 min, walk for 2 mins. do this for a total of 30 mins.
    Week 2: jog/run 1.5 mins, walk for 2 mins.
    Week 3: jog/run 2.5 mins, walk 2 mins,
    Week 4: jog/run 5 mins, walk 1.5 mins
    Week 5: jog/run 7 mins, walk 1.5 mins
    Week 6: jog/run 9 mins, walk 1 mins
    Week 7: jog/run 12 mins, walk 30 secs
    Week 8: jog/run 15 mins, walk 30 secs
    Week 9: jog/run 30 mins with no breaks

    *Another way you could do this is to find a distance that's 5k and do the above plan until you complete the 5k - eventually you should be able to run it without stopping in about 30 mins*

    If you aim for 4x per week, then you'll be able to build up more easily to the increase in running time for the following week.

    It's perfectly all right to repeat a week if you feel you have to. not everybody will be at the same level; some may even want to run for longer than what is states. The plan is do-able though,
