Welcome to Day 22 of the New Year Weight Loss Challenge!

Run, Run, As Fast As You Can!

Running is one of the most important and natural exercises you can do to lose weight and get fit and healthy!
Running is an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise. Running also strengthens your muscles, reduces the risk of Type 2 Diabetes, burns fat and calories, strengthens your lungs, increases your stamina and boosts  your energy levels.
Whether you trot, jog or run anyone can do it. From Couch to 5k (C25K) for beginners to Marathon training for old pros, there is a running program/regimen for all levels of fitness.

Do you run for exercise or fitness?
Do you enjoy running?
Have you done any running program like the C25K before? Are you willing to try it?

I did last summer. I need to get back to it. I used to do a combination of slow jog to a run and back for about twenty minutes every night

I used to run.  I set a goal once that I wanted to complete a 5K and I did it and then I pretty much quit running.  I never enjoyed it like some people do.

I used to love to run. But I have heart issues, so I am trying to get back into it, slowly!
