I was wondering that too. I was thinking that you went straight from the couch to a 5K?!

I made it up to five minutes of running, then wussed out. I think one of my bridesmaids and I might start it again in January.

I used the podcasts from Robert Ulrey (I think that’s his name). They’re great for getting started.

I would love support with this. Unfortunately, when I looked at that blog a month ago it said you should be able to run 2 miles straight so I’m on the 2 mile plan right now!

I made it through the first week but then I had the flu I couldn’t even stand for more than a minute let alone run. I want to get back on it soon, I may wait until January to start it again.

I’m on week 2 (after a long break and a restart)!!! I started it to get back into shape because it’s a workout that I can ease back into (drs think I had a stress fracture in my shin). I hope your knee isn’t bothering you too much. My fiance had taken a glucosamine/chondritin supplement for his knee and swore by it. I thought it was all in his head but have found that in combination with stretching and strengthening, it seems to have helped. Good luck!

OOOOH i like like, my fiance is a runner and runs at least 3 or 4 5ks a year and i always want to but i can never get the oomph to start up, and when I do i do exactly that, i start to much right away and get discouraged after running for 2 days.

I will definitely be on board for this one!!! Count me in!!! When did you start?
