I am going to do the Couch to 5K program starting next week (pending an OK from my OB).

I plan to run a 5K in Dec.

I'm not new to running by any means, I am a former triathelete... I've done a 1/2 marathon and many 5k runs, I plan on running again, It really helped me get my weight off and keep it off.

Anyone Care to Join?

I am interested... I am not that new to running, but I have never ran in a race of any kind. I was running quite a bit when I found out I was pregnant with the twins, and then due to my past pg history, I quit anything stenuous. I do think that it has helped me loose a lot of the weight. My girls are a little over 2 weeks old and I was able to get into (and be comfy) pre-pregnant shorts last night. I don't know when my OB will release me, I go for my 4 week check-up on 7/27. What is the couch to 5k challenge? I love being fit and how much better I feel physically and mentally when I am in shape

My DH and I were thinking about doing a 5K in the spring, but walking. Would this qualify?

I'm not new to running. I ran cross country track in high school, but I really do not LIKE running all that much, but Im willing to give it a try! I'd love to be able to run a couple miles... just trying to figure out HOW to do all that with this darn csection recovery..Its been 8 weeks and when I do any type of jump movement it feels wierd..... :/

I happily Breastfed Alba for 5 1/2 months!!!!

Below is my weightloss ticker. This is not for the pregnancy weight to come off as it has pretty much all came off. The rest of it is just what I've been wanting to loose for a while now to get back to my healthier weight!

I got hooked on this a year and a half ago, then went on to the one-hour runner program. I don't know if I want to get into running 3 miles again, it just depends on time. I do plan on continuing to jog, as I did today, but just not necessarily for longer distances.

I love the idea of couch to 5k but i don't have the patience. I feel like I can get to 5k way sooner! But who knows if I actually can.
