I ran about 2.5 miles today, and it was too hot to go farther.

I'd really like to run this local 5K in the fall, but I'm super slow and I'm afraid they would take everything down before I finished! I'm just going to keep working and getting stronger.

Thanks!

Someone on another board just turned me on to the Runner's World beginner's program. I think I will take that on.

I used to run, years ago, and think I overtrained - ended up with bursitis in both hips. Ouch! Hope not to repeat that this go 'round.

I ran a mile today! Granted, it was cobbled together (1/2 mile, then a 1/4 mile walk, then 1/4 mile, then a 1/4 walk, then a 1/4 mile), but it was still a mile.

Next goal is to run a continuous 3/4 mile, then a 1/4 mile walk, then a 1/4 mile run.

Baby steps...

I actually ended up doing 7 miles instead of 6. emoticon It felt pretty good too.

Always have something fun to look forward to even if it's just going home to your loved ones every night.

I ran .75 miles! Yay me! (You've got to start somewhere.)

My husband and I just set a goal to run a 5K this fall - I'm really excited about it.

I'll be sure to check in to this board for motivation from seeing how far all of you run!

Sunday 27th May (today): 5 miles.

I get what you're doing with the Spark total, combining all our mileage, I thought it was just a personal total, my excuse is that my mind hadn't come back to earth after that run.. er.. that and I'm just no observant :P

I had a two days off, should of idealy only been one, if only I was running in sunshine rather than the grey cloud that seems to have returned.

That's the idea. I am just curious as to how many of us are running, and how many miles of road were putting down. 7.5 miles today for me.
