New Year Weight Loss Challenge Day 22: Run, Run, As Fast As You Can!

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 do not run, maybe someday but not yet. For now it's all I can do to last an hour on the treadmill just walking, but I am getting better at it everyday.

My goal is to lose another 10 lbs to put less stress on my joints before I start running.

I wish I could run... I'm not good at it. I'm much better with an elliptical..

I am going to complete Week 3 Day 3 of C25K today. I really enjoy running. It really relaxes me, and allows me time to think.

Yes I do run about 15 -20 miles per week. I like doing races every now & then.  It allows me to eat pretty much what I want & without gaining weight. No, I have not done couch to 5k, but have only heard good things about it.
