Good luck!  I have heard a lot of bees talking about the Couch to 25k plan.  I can’t run because my asthma freaks out like crazy.

Good luck!  I have that app, but never used it!  I have started running on the treadmill again, and I must say…after it’s over and my wish for death dissolves, I do feel pretty good about myself!  Running is definitely hard to teach yourself to like, but I hope to get there some day!

One of my best girlfriends started this program about a year ago, and she is still running and <gasp!> enjoying it!! As a non-runner, this is kind of hard for me to even comprehend πŸ™‚ Hahaha…but seriously, she loves it and she looks great too!

Good luck! Hope you love it too!

I keep telling myself I am going to start couch to 5K….. I’m hoping to start next week when I’m off night shifts (yay!). Let me know how it works for you… maybe you guys can come and be my personal trainers… I need to light a fire under my couch to get started….

I’m on week 2 day 2 and it is awesome and interesting.  I did the app, which just allows you to play your own music, and then some dude comes on and says “Beeeeeep…run now.”  It is awesome because I don’t psyche myself out, I don’t think  “oh god, I have to run again in 15 seconds…” i just do what the guy in my iPod tells me to.  Good luck, I think you’ll LOVE IT!

Oh and one thing that helped me, if you have any shin muscle issues, watch the ABCs of running on you tube.  I guess a lot of people strike with their heel when they should strike with the ball of their foot.

And remember when you have a bad day running, that usually just means the next one will really be awesome.

Oooo… this sounds really neat.  I’ve always admired people who run, but never known how to “get into it” if that makes sense.
