re: PuttaDaForkDown


I'm going to walk for a month before I even think of trying the couch to 5k plan.

I can also attest to the Couch to 5K plan. I did it last year and it worked. Even after taking 6 months off and not doing much of anything (except eating), I started running again 3 weeks ago and was back to doing a 5K in 2 weeks. It definitely works.

I wondered how long it would take an a-hole from the OT to arrive.

I'm digging out the stopwatch tonight and giving it a whirl. Sounds like a good plan. Might kill me, but a good plan!


There were certainly days here and there that made me want to kick puppies, but I was always able to finish. I'm about to go do the last day of week 7... 25 minutes, over 2 miles, and I'm actually looking forward to it. Last run was 25 minutes as well and I was feeling great at the end, could have made a full 5K easily. It's funny to think that just a month ago a 5-minute jog was tough as hell.

Did a nice 5 mile jog without stopping yesterday and another mile walking/jogging. This weather is great for running!

When you feel up to it... try this: Couch To 5K running plan. I walked a lot as well, and hit a plateau as far as the weight loss goes, then started this plan. I'm finishing up week 7 this evening, and the pounds have started to come off again. I had never been much of a runner, but now I kinda look forward to it. Especially with the nice weather lately. And everytime I got to a day and just didn't think I could do it, I've been able to. Some are worse than others, but always managed to finish.


Well I used to run and that always kept my body in check. But I've had one knee scoped, have arthritis (mild) in both knees and layed my ankle over completely several years ago while running. I miss it badly but it just pounds my knees too much. I have tried many times the last few years but if I jog (and I can go a mile or so-wind is not a problem-knee pain is) I can hardly walk for a few days after that. I ride my bike a bit and I swim a couple times a week. I am going to start riding more. My wife bikes, rides, tennis, golf, runs and recently started yogalates. I'm going to try that with her. And I also play a little tennis and want to pick that up more as well.

When my wife and I met we were both runners and ran in probably twenty 10ks together. I do miss it. I ran about an eight minute mile which was good for me.

I had my left knee reconstructed 6.5 years ago now... but oddly enough it's usually my right knee that gets sore!

re: PuttaDaForkDown


Might have beginning of arthritis. Mine get sore as hell but walking doesn't bother them. When I get about thirty pounds off I'll try again but my doctors told me Im an idiot if I run. To do anything low impact. My wife is running her second half marathon next month and he hips are bothering her and I know it's from too much running. And she weighs 112 so she's light on her feet. It's just the impact. It sucks because it was one exercise that I really loved.

I am going to try the yogalates with her. About twenty years ago a friend of mine and I worked out together and walked into an areobics class and got in the last row, the only guys, and about died in five minutes. But the next day we did ten minutes and about two months in we were doing the whole hour with no problems. I was in the best shape of my life. I think if I approach yogalates like that I can succeed.

Have you tried glucosomine chondrotion?

I take two arthritis Tylenol whenever they bother me and that works.

I asked Bankston what he thought about glucosomine. He told me some people it works, some people it doesn't. I took it for two months and both knees stayed swollen. If I walked for ten minutes on a treadmill I could barely walk for two days. I kept thinking shite this is the arthritis but just decided to get off them and after a couple days they started feeling better but it took a month to get that out of my system.

So to answer your question, yes. And it doesn't work for me.

Works for about 60% of the people, like you did you have to give it 6-8 weeks, some times it works sometimes it dont

Knees tend to be our Achilles heels as we get older, although on my left the Achilles tendon is my Achilles heel. I am post op 2 weeks from a torn meniscus seem to be healing well. Wife is taking the 'rooster comb' injections, they're not made from rooster combs anymore, to put some lubrication back in the knee.

Martini, you might ask Bankston about those, a lot of people have had a lot of success with them, been able to resume active lifestyles. That is my fear and why dieting so heavily, who wants to get old and immobile?

I wish her good luck, some say they notice a difference. I had them about 6 months ago and they didn't help.. They want to replace one of mine, and I think I'm gonna let them...

I can just speak for myself, da chicken feather stuff didn't work for me... I desperately wanted it too though... It made me sweat and have flashbacks to having fluid drawn on Monday mornings after ball games. I made them bring me a cold rag to put on my neck... I'm a wuss with needles.. I've had 5 surgeries on my knees, and they say it's time to get a new one. I finally agree with them...

re: PuttaDaForkDown


Ok...daily check-in/weigh-in. Lost 1lb since yesterday for a total of 3lbs since Monday. I pretty much did exactly the same thing yesterday that I had done on Tuesday.

This morning, I did a mile walk before my normal daily routine. I'll still do another mile walk/jog as a minimum when I get home tonight. I just wanted to ramp things up a little bit.

Good luck fellas...Geaux Tigers!
