YES, and I loved it! I had NEVER been a runner - and boy, week 1 was even tough - but now I really enjoy running! I'm still not the greatest (sometimes have to take a bit of a breather to walk), but I'm doing an 8k this weekend and have my eye on a 10k in a few months!
A piece of advice: don't be afraid to repeat a week if you think you need to! Also, the iphone/ipod app is GREAT.
