|norcalfocus01||I ran cross country in High School and loved it. But now 11 years later, I can't stand running. I prefer a bike.|

Good luck. I hate running :D I only ran my first few years in the military, and then I was a proud 3 mile club member... I ran a total of 3 miles per year, lol.
Good you made it back though! I was on a carrier (JFK) in 2004 for the onslaught and relatively safe, and then in the desert in 08-09 as a contractor and most of the action was over by then.

Do it, man!
I used to LOVE runnin' but I kind of hung it up... right now (in winter) I go X-C skiing. In the summer, I mostly bike and blade.
Do yourself a favor though, ditch the Twinkies and Mt. Dew. In the end, junk food is just counter-productive to ANY fitness goals. Feed yourself the right foods and you'll bounce back from workouts (and see better results) a whole lot faster.

@ blueboi-Thanks. The app is fairly easy on you. I have looked through the first 2 weeks and they make it really easy to start out.
@ duffman-I don't like the iPhone either. I rock the Android OS. The VA gave me a 4th gen iPod Touch because my brain don't work and I forget things thanks to our friendly neighborhood dirka dirka speaking friends who tried to blow me up. I used to HATE to run but by my 3rd year in the ARMY it kind of grew on me. GREAT STRESS RELIEVER. I now rate it right below sex and Effexor!

Fatboy Does Couch to 5K
I am psyched about this new forum!!!
Long story short I was in the ARMY for 10 years 1 month and 17 days before being medically retired. I got blown up one too many times in Iraq. Anyways during my time in I slowly started to enjoy running. So when I got out I stopped and now a year and a half later I have went from 180 to 220. My daughter says my "boobies are getting big like moms!"
So today I started "Couch to 5K". It's in the apple app store. Over a 9 week span the app slowly trains you to run 5k. Today was my first go at it and I learned two things:
1- I have gone way too long without running
2- On Wednesday I am bringing a pack of Twinkies and a Mt. Dew to the gym
Since I don't have anywhere else to "brag" about my accomplishments I hope y'all don't mind me updating here. Also if you guys have gave this a go let me know how it turned out for ya.
Didn't get to go Wednesday, but made up for it today. I am supposed to run on Mon Wed and Fri for 9 weeks. Anyways today seemed to fly by and running and breathing was a lot easier!
