Run like you stole something

Today's weight: 226

That's a 3 pound drop since last week so I stepped on the scale 4 times to make sure it was right. But I only lost half of a pound the previous week so I think it was just evening itself out.

I've been adding some running to my walks lately.  I'm always so impressed by people who run and I've attempted to be a runner numerous times, but I just don't stick with it.  Part of my problem is that I'm slow and my endurance is poor and I give up quickly.

So I bought this book.

Honestly, I bought it a couple of years ago, but have never really read it until now.  Jeff Galloway's approach to running is to take it very conservatively and to have lots of walking breaks.  That's a plan I can get behind!!!  Both days last weekend I set out for a 3 mile walk/run.  It was mostly walking and while I was sore from my short running intervals, I felt good!  I'm not signing up for a marathon or anything, but maybe I can actually call myself a runner some day soon?!?


  1. Congratulations on the loss.

    I'm not a runner either. Honestly don't think I ever will be.

    Way to go on giving it a try!

  2. Three pounds is great! I do the same thing, step back on the scale a few times to make sure, ha ha. Starting out running with walking breaks is a very good idea and helps prevent injuries too.

  3. Couch to 5K is a great learn to run program. I never loved running and I was slow! I did love Couch to 5K though because I felt like I was making progress and accomplishing something each time I did a session. I highly recommend it to those new to running. It uses the run/walk method like Galloway recommends.
