Couch to 5K



Recommended Posts

whosya! I am right there with you! Today I also ran 35 mins and walked 5. I ran 3.20 miles. So i ran the 3 and walked the 2.0. I officially run 5Ks. Yup, I'm a runner. I only hope to get the "runner's nod" like you!

Kay- yeah, tell me how that book is, I am interested. I don't know if i will ever be an outdoor runner. I have now injured my knee somehow. I noticed it hurting in Rome, we walked and walked and walked some more, and it went away over christmas and now today it started bothering me again. it's on the outside of it, almost feels as if something is catching in there. I hope I don't have a torn maniscus(sp?). My husband has that in both knees, and has had one clipped so far and needs the other done, and it's a very painful recovery.

LA- Thats a great idea to double up. In the first few weeks you may surprise yourself and not need to double up. That's awsome that you signed up for the 5k!

Wombat- I do do leg exercises the same day that I run. I do get injured a lot it seems so I'm not sure if it's good to work out your legs after running. I have a problem with shin splints a lot and now my right knee is killing me.

OWWWWEEEEE!!! I had a fill today, and my port area is super sore, to the point that I can't walk without pain. Every little movement that causes my big tummy to jiggle causes awful pain. The doc missed on the first try, and dug around in there with the freaking needle, and finally had to take it out and stick me again. In between sticks, I made the mistake of looking over at him, and I looked at the needle, which usually doesn't freak me out, but this time, I thought the needle looked very similar to a coffee stirrer, and I thought I might pass out. Not a good experience, but I got my fill.

Anyway, all that to say, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get this awful bruising and pain to go away more quickly so I can get back to my Couch to 5K program? No way I'm getting on the treadmill like this.

travelgirl- sorry for the fill pain! That sounds awful. No I'm not sure on how to ease it. Sorry. It may just have to heal on its own. You could ice it i guess.

I told him beforehand "NO DIGGING!" And he numbed me up first, and then dug around in there anyway. FINALLY after about 5 minutes of misery, he withdrew and stuck me again. Hit it right away on the second try. If he'd just done that to begin with, I'd be fine. It's really swollen today, right around the injection spot, and very tender to the touch. I really wanted to get back into the swing of things, especially with a fill! I need a jump start on my weight loss.

How is everyone else coming on their own couch to 5k programs? Maybe the swelling and pain will go down enough that I can hit it tomorrow. I will try the ice today, and see if that helps.

Did day 3 of Week 2 today :smile: It was pretty tough - we had a cold front come in and the wind was awful outside. It made the run so much harder!

I ran yesterday! I took some Tylenol, and pushed through the pain. Since I didn't do very much last week, I'm repeating week 1 this week.

I seem to burn more calories when I alternate speeds.

wombat great job finishing up week 2. a few more weeks and you will love running

Back from vacation & did manage to get my 3 days of running in @ Wk2. Not easy, considering too many "beverages" - but managed to loose a pound and not pig out.

Starting the grind of wk 3 today - hopefully the sounds/smell of the gym get me moving & back to reality.

I'm hoping to find the love soon!!!! I did lose 2 pounds this week so I'm attributing that to jogging (and NOT eating chocolate)!!

Go Wombat!!!

Posted on another thread, but do any of ya know of a good sports bra? The running is killing the "girls" (I'm a 34DD). I'm wearing my bra plus the sports bra to smoosh them down good - but I still get the pain of the bouncy bounce, short of using duck tape to strap them down.

Thanks,

checking in...away on buisness again but i did find a local YMCA.. did a 5k today.

hey sweethot when you do your 5k time do you include the 5 min warm up walk in it?

I had way less trouble doing 5k today...and...i kicked two little 19yr old barbies butts who were running with me trying to keep up.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
