I did it three years ago. It's a great program. In fact, I would say it contributed to what I now call my running addiction. It's a great way to start slowly (and therefore avoid injury) and build continuously on successes. At the end, I not only finished the race, I won my age group! That was huge for me.

After the C25K try any of the beginner running programs available on Runners World (you pick your deadline 8 weeks, 12, 16, whatever and choose your goal: 10k, half-marathon, triathalon). They're also reasonable and suited to newbies. This next step helped me through the half of the Pittsburgh Marathon last May.

A Diff. Kind of "Scale"
I'd agree with Deb. I'd take a few every couple of weeks. In most cases you're likely looking at a month at least to 'see' the progress.

That looks awesome. Unfortunately, I'm fasting today or it would be on for tonight. Will have to wait for tomorrow.

Sunday is Fasting day
Mmm. First coffee. Looks like I may be alone in this fasting Sunday thing. Sunday is really the only day I can do this as 'work' (which I'm loving) can be quite physical. Hope everyone's ...
