  •  I have to say that the Couch to 5k program (4+ / 0-)

    works. I downloaded the iphone ap after reading this review:

    Fat man ran 3 miles.

    It is fantastic and has really kept me moving. Hard to believe you can go from not being able to run for 1 minute to running 5k in only a matter of weeks but it is possible.

    •  I'm doing a similar program..you are right (0+ / 0-)

      it really is doable for most folks.

      For anyone else who is interested.  The timeframe is the same, but different intervals.

      It starts off from day one at a 3-5 mile distance (I do 4.5 mi).  I find I don't injure myself when I only have to work on the speed since I get used to the distance right away.  Starting week three now.  I hit the magic ammonia breath last week, which I thought only elite marathoners got.  I am so not an elite runner.  It's an interval shuffle, lol.

      Where are you at in the program?
