Hi! I wanted to stop by and welcome you to SparkPeople and the "Weekly Challenges" team. I am happy you are here. Sparkpeople is a wonderful place. The tools available are awesome once you get the hang of using them. The best part is the people. Get involved in a couple if teams and jump right in. 1920 days ago
I read your reply to my posting. I am also doing the 5k trot. I signed up for the walk/run challenge and the training sessions. Last month I was on my way to running 5k when I threw out my shoulder and back on a trip to Seattle. That de-railed me from my training, so I have to start back at square one. I'm really taking to heart the 'start small and build bigger' philosophy.
So far, I'm absolutely loving this site. It is truly inspirational to see how so many people's lives have been positively impacted.
I noticed that you said you were in college? I'm currently attending University and working full time. It's hectic, but I seem to be managing.
Take care, and best of luck to you. Feel free to friend me on here if you would like!
