If you're looking to try out a Couch to 5K program- here are some links to get you started:
The original program can be found on the Cool Running Website. There are plenty of beginner tips and forums that will help you get started.
The podcast I am using is from Running Into Shape. You'll find plenty of podcasts and apps out there so look around and find one that appeals to you. I wish I had a smart phone so I could use an app that supplies cues over your own music- but I have to make do with my old school iPod, however there are apps for both Apple and Droid operating systems.
Last time I did the program (pre-kids) I used Robert Ullrey's podcasts. They worked just fine- but I prefer "real music" over techno beats.
During the run I realized just how badly I need some new sneakers. They are definitely high on the priorities list.
Has anyone done the Couch to 5K program? Any tips or tricks to share?
Thanks for reading!
