        Thanks for the sympathy! Yes, at least I did it. I have to go tomorrow to do day 3 for week 2, I feel like I missed a lot of workout days this week.

        SNOW! yuck, I'm hoping we're done with snow, but I think that might be too much to ask! Don't get derailed, you can still get 3 days in this week. I know we're supposed to do them every other day, but I don't always get to, depending on my schedule.

          I did week 3 day 1 and OH MY GOSH!! I was able to do the first rep of 3 mins but by the time I had to do it again towards the end I could only do about a minute and a half before I had to start walking it out. It's been a few days and I haven't been able to hit the gym due to my family being in town but I think I might have to do week 3 more than 3 times before I can move on to week 4.

          On a side note... what kind of shorts are you girls running in??
          I've gone through every different pair of undies and shorts combos and I can't find something that I'm not digging out our pulling down!

          I bought some Champion running shorts that are okay. The Nike Tempos were HORRIBLE because the panty stayed in place but the shorts were riding up like crazy!!!

            I started week 3 day 1 today as well. It was for sure a bit challenging but I am finally feeling like I am getting back in my running state of mind. soooo that is good.

            as far as shorts, can't help you there, I always wear the champion (from target I think) brand of capris

              I always wear capris or pants too, for exactly the reason you said, I don't like how they ride up, lol!

              I'm going to do my last day of week 2 today and will start week 3 tomorrow.

              I started yesterday!! I'm not going to lie it was rough. I'm in such horrible shape and being a smoker my lungs were not happy with me!!

              However, I made it through. I'm a little sore today but it feels good. I wasn't going to do two days in a row but my BFF wants to start today and its supposed to rain tomorrow and Tuesday so I'm going to push and do day 2 today!!

              Keeping going girls you're all doing great!!

              way to go girls! you're all doing amazing!

              Erika - I secretly love running in the snow. It keeps my body cool so my heart rate doesn't max out, and usually no one else is out there except for me and a few other crazies...so it makes it feel like even greater of an accomplishment. My trainer always says that running in the rain/snow/non-ideal weather conditions builds character lol

              Cathy - for the shorts part, I'm zero help. I bought an awesome pair of light weight adidas capri's that I just love running in. I always had the same issue with shorts as you mentioned so I gave up about 3 years ago and now I run in capris or long tights.

                I finished week 2 today. I didn't have time to get to the gym so I went to the track at my old high school instead, because it was close to where I was headed afterwards. I LOVED running outside. It's not like it's the first time I've ever run outside, it's just been awhile and every other time I've done it, I didn't have my ipod, so it went by really slow. Today went by super fast and it was the perfect temperature so I wasn't overheating, it was great!

                I know I can't make it to the track everyday and I don't know how I feel about running in my neighborhood, but I think I'm going to try to make one of my runs everyweek outside.

                  Thanks Everyone!

                  I never made it out this weekend for running. Too much going on but i did ski today and that is work out enough for today.

                  I only wear capri's running cause shorts and I do not get along.
