I am assuming you mean a couch to 5k? I'll join. I am on week 1/day 2 of the iPad app version - did 5 min walk/ 8 rotations of 1 min run/1.5 min walk and 5 min walk today.

My history is that I see myself as a runner but 3 years ago I injured my hip by overuse so I stopped running. I am trying to start running really slow while doing work to strengthen my very flabby butt, hips, abs and thighs.

I am hoping to do the full c25k program and run/walk a 5 k at the end of January.

Hi CG, nice to have you on board. I did the same c25k too 2 years ago and I got to the point where I could run for an hour, then my gym closed for renovations and that was it. I want to restart using the same plan. What iPad app do you use?

I'll be starting tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed. I haven't run (nor even exercised) in such a long while!

Nice! You're persistent. I gave up starting today bcos I woke up with an ugly cold. Throat and chest burning, running nose and all. I'll take some medication and try to keep my eating under control.

Wow girl, you're doing well! I can't believe I've been missing your posts. Keep up the good work. My cold is slowly going away. I hope I'll feel better tomorrow so I can start by Sunday.

Lots of snow today so I did my run on snowshoes

5 min walk, 6 rotations of 1.5 min run/ 2 min walk, 12 min walk

It was tiring! My butt muscles hurt during but my hip doesn't hurt now.
