W4R1: This 49 year old couch tator did it!!!!!!

I am in awe of this program! I went from not running through all of my W1R1 sessions of 60 seconds to running 2-3 minute sessions and 2-5 minute sessions! UNBELIEVABLE! I'm pretty sure a snail, 2 slugs and a turtle passed me though! I am trying to be mindful on my running days to watch how much I eat, keeping meals fairly light since i run at night and also upping my water intake. I'm finding each week challenges me but I am also getting through it better and recovering faster. You guys are awesome with all the support!

Keep going Gdean, all self proclaimed and reformed couch 'tators inspire me since I'm one myself.


Well done!!!


LOL. I'm a tortoise too but we will get there in the end.

I too can't quite believe that I can now manage to jog for FIVE minutes.

Good luck for future runs.
