      Hi Larry! I'm just starting over on the C25K also, I'm trying to find some other people on DM that are doing it too... Good for you that you finished it! Just remember not to push yourself too much, I always find that's my problem when I feel like I'm not gonna finish.

      starting over is very hard, but it is so much better than not starting at all. good luck, and i hope the gallbladder issues resolve soon!

      ha. I hope he is right. But he would be wrong to not exercise. If you exercise at 140 bpm for 1 hour a day and have a RHR of say 65 that is 98,100 beats per day. If sedentary you are probably at 80 beats per minute (or more) all day = 115,200 per day.

      I think the folks on the sidelines will be happy and excited for you.
      I've never run in shame - but definitely in embarrassment of course that had nothing to do with running and a lot more to do with a hungry baby at the finish line.

      So funny that you post this today. I too am 47 and ran a 5k today and was thinking, should I be doing this. I enjoy the longer, slower ones so much more. I have only been running for about three years.

      I believe from experience that the first year or 2 should just be building base mileage and not speed work. I would not recommend a marathon. You should have a decent base to train for that. You will destroy your body more with that training plan than doing "speed" work. I get dusted by plenty of guys in their 50's at races. I believe it is what you like. If you aren't doing speed work (and you probably shouldn't) a 5k is just a hard run and short enough not to really hurt you.

      You might could convince me that you should steer from a 10k on that premise. Also people do go from C2 26.2 in a year but I wouldn't... I also believe in 3 "quality" runs a week. LSD, Tempo, & Intervals. That gives you a day to recover from running between each run. BUT you need to ride a bike or something on the other days..... Everyone is an experiment of one.
