C25K, is a fantastic program that's been designed to get just about anyone from the couch to running 5 kilometers or 30 minutes in just 9 weeks.
Its secret is that it's a gentle introduction to getting the body moving, starting off alternating between walking and running small distances, and slowly building up until after 8 weeks, you're ready to run 5 kilometers or 30 minutes non stop.
The reason for putting this site together is to try to create the definitive Couch to 5k resource on the web. For the novice, there's a lot of information available...it's just a matter of trying to find it all. That's where c25k.com will hopefully help. I've tried to collate links to just about all of the information you'll need for the Couch to 5k program, plus some other sites that I've found fantastic to assist my running after graduating from C25K.
Oh, this looks great! I hired a coach to keep me accountable, and she'll be happy to see I'm doing this. I have a treadmill, so that can help. I wish I could run outside, but it is SOOO hilly here, seriously, that I KNOW I would get frustrated and winded so fast. Walks are fine, and often challenging, but running, forget it!
The site looks awesome. I'm going to also download the Podcast! That will help, too.
Do you gals want to check in daily (create a sticky) or what do you think is the best way to check in with each other? I'm pretty excited about this. Thanks, Melissa!
