This is what I used:




I went from not being able to run more than a block to doing a half marathon in 4 months ๐Ÿ˜€ And I weigh over 200lbs! 

You can do it! Congrats and good luck

my advice: dont focus on constant running. Its ok to stop and walk but make sure you limit yourself with walking time.

I definitely agree with daniellealys ; don’t focus on constant running! That’s always been my big hang-up on the gym at the treadmills. Plus I always seem to get stuck between the two natural born runners! 

You can do it! I may even start one of those plans with you ๐Ÿ™‚

I am doing my first 10k in September.  I did a 5 mile run on Thanksgiving, but nothing else longer than that.  I have a hard time running in the cold or on a treadmill so am waiting for it to warm up.

I did Couch to 5k a two years and a month ago. I’ll be running my third half marathon in 3 weeks (2 weeks before my wedding). I hated running at first, but now I love it. I wish you the best of luck and I hope you enjoy it. You have plenty of time!

Awesome!  i did my first 10k plan in april of last year- I had been running for awhile already- it was a walk/run plan, and I ran my first 15k in July.  After dealing with some injury issues, I ran multiple 10ks in the fall and two half marathons.  Thsi can be done!!!  I’m now running 20 miles per week and building a base for marathon training, with two halves back to back in March!  This can be done!

Just keep with it. Push yourself, but only as much as you can. I have never done one, but I am going to do one this year, it’s my goal! I actually did my first run for the year ( I was off for a month), and it felt SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good. I can’t wait to go back tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚

Im running a 10k in march! I ran track/cross country in high school and since then Ive run some 5k’s but its been a LONNNGGG time since I ran a 10k or anything over it (I used to run them everyday! Crazy!). I started by running in my neighborhood and gradually increasing my distance. I also cycle between longer and shorter runs, but never shorter than 2 miles, which I can now do without stopping (yay). Ive been training for 3 weeks now I can already tell the difference in my endurance. You just have to keep at it!
