Couch to 5k is awesome for new runners, gilly. I found the program was a bit too slow for me, since my body adjusted pretty quickly to running. I did it for the first few weeks though.

I have decided that I'm going to do the Bridge to Bridge this fall (Golden Gate to Bay Bridge; it is a 10k).

Thanks for the link. I had a good look round the site and I am going to give the C25K a go, I am so unfit though so I reckon it will be a bit of a struggle but at least I will be in the privacy of my own home!
So today will be Week1/Day1 woo hoo!!!
I used to run in school and was pretty good at 100yds but I struggle with distance, I never managed to run the whole 400yd track while I was at school!
I did a half marathon in 1995 but walked loads of it hence my time of 2:56, but I did manage a sprint over the line though! I would be very happy to be able to run for more than a few minutes, once I have worked through the C25K I will get my hubby to drop me off 5K from home and give it a go, at least he will be able to keep an eye on me, mainly nice straight roads so he can see me from a good distance, I don't want to keep up with the car!!!

It is 43 degree and raining and I went out for a mile run. I feel invigorated!

kimberlily-excellent goal, you'll have no problem with that race, you have plenty of time to train.
Morningstar--yay for you for running in the rain! I have run in snow flurries, but never rain(though I have secretly always wanted too)
I ran 7 miles yesterday, but a migraine has sidelined me today. I'm trying to run 25 miles a week, but I've been getting a lot of headaches lately.

Yes the rain was good but the slush I was stepping in kept me to one mile. I am so pent up in the house and spring takes too long where I live to get here. I am going to try to get out more and more so I can get up to 3 miles each time.

morningstar, you'll be amazed at how quickly you work your way up to 3 miles. I'm not quite back where I was when I stopped running last winter, but within a month or so, I went from walking most of the time to running 3 miles without having to walk or stop

Thanks Kimberlily I can't take the winter anymore. I get bored trying to keep myself moving in the house and outside I can really think. I loved it today. The smell of the pines and the water dripping on my face. A very large crow circled around and then flew back into a big pine. I am sure the deer were watching my foolish self and laughing. The melting ice was hard at times to navigate. Soon it will be gone though. I am hoping that the fat will burn away as dieting alone and not moving takes too long.

Well I did the first part of the C25K last night and I must admit I did not finish it! I only managed 20 mins not the 25 but at least I very nearly got there!
I also found some Mp3 downloads that are based on the program with really good motivating music on it and it also has a guy telling you when to do your next section of running or walking so I don't have to clock watch! When I do the next session I am going to cover the screen of my treadmill and have the Mp3 playing! There are downloads for all 9 weeks so I will use them all!
Hubby has said that once I have been doing it for a few weeks that he will come out running with me which is great, we can run along the beach, how good is that!!

gilly, are the downloads from Podrunner? I love his mixes. I usually run to a mix anywhere from 152BPM to 165BPM
