Will I Fail in Fall!

Fall is my time of year. I live in a warm part of California and I get so excited at the first sign of fall. I’m so tired of being hot!!! All I want to do in summer is stay in air condition. I find it easier to exercise when it’s cooler. I do better with exercise and eating this time of year. Not as many parties. Not as many excuses to avoid exercise. I’ve been on a weight loss plateau but I think I can break it now. I planned on starting running once it got cool but I hurt my foot. I will give it a few weeks. I can do my martial arts but it hurts to run. I am challenging myself to lose 10lbs and be able to run a 3k by the new year. Can I do it? I don’t want to fail in fall!!!

Running ,I’m so confused!

Couch to 5K: Week One - Workout One

I was thinking about starting a running program again. I like how easy it is to do and minimal equipment is needed. I already have a Couch to 5K App set up on my phone. My biggest problem is I worry about by knee and shin I have had two knee injuries in the past few years. I run now in Tae Kwon Do and I feel fine. That of course is barefoot and on a mat. The last time I started a running program it was on concrete. My knee’s didn’t hurt but I would get this pain and numbness in my lower legs. Should I run on concrete ,asphalt or a dirt track? Should I do the barefoot running thing? What are the best running shoes. Should I wait till my weight is down before running.? I think this would be better for my knee. Oh ,so many questions for something I did everyday as a kid. The only reason I was thinking about the barefoot running thing was the shin pain. I don’t get in Tae Kwon Do. It seems I only get it with chunky running shoes. I hate shoes! I love that martial arts is a barefoot sport. Let me know your ideas. I really could use some help with this one
