The first step towards running is to establish a good walking base. You should aim at being able to comfortably walk 3 miles.

Spark's Walking Center is probably a good place to start. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/sparkwalking.

It depends a bit on your current level of fitness as to whether to start with the Beginners or Intermediate Walking plan.

When you are ready to transition to running, a Couch to 5K plan is definitely the way to go. These plans work through progressively increasing intervals of running and walking. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/training-plans

Sarah,

I am not sure what you are referring with the Starter's Exercise Plan. Are you referring to the beginner's running program, Spark Your Way to a 5K?

Hello, I am trying to figure out ther best way to go about exercising in general leading up to running sometime this year. I have looked on the site and found helpful articles. I cant seem to figure out where though with the way the fitness section is organized. If anyone knows where the starters exercise plan is, it would be great. Its exercise basica for 30 days, starting easiest at day 1 and builidng while adding more exercies, reps. and time into each day. I have looked and found the workout generator, not thhe starters exercise plan, I think thats the name of the plan.
