A couple of years ago I tried out this intriguing program called Couch to 5k (C25K). Basically, it's a training program that gets any self-proclaimed couch potato to jog a 5k in only 9 weeks. It works. I tried it, following the program 100% and received MUCH satisfaction on the day I completed it. I even graphed myself a little chart to take notes on each workout and gave myself a gold star upon completion. (Yes, those gold star stickers your teacher gave you in 1st grade for completing a penmanship paper!)
Here is my "journal chart"I used my treadmill for most workouts, though I believe running outside is ideal. You see...the treadmill gives me no excuses!
Couch to 5K is a PERFECT start for beginners and it is designed to prevent injury. Visit this website for more information. Whisper a line if you've tried this before...
