    I am downloading the app as i type this so i can download the podcast's, i like the idea of this as you say it will build me up slowly. i have a pair of trainer's i use for my exercise dvd's so will use them until i work out if running is for me, i will need to buy some bottoms and tops for the running as i don't have any but will go for something cheaper so if running isn't for me i can use them for y other workout's. then if running is for me i will invest in some good trainer's and running clothes :)

Thank you for your information and help emoticon

Jane xoxo

    I think a lot of people would recommend the Couch to 5K podcasts. They're how I started off 5 years ago! As far as I can remember you can down load them off i tunes as a free podcast. It builds you up really slowly, 3 running sessions a week over nine weeks with intervals of running and walking.

As for what to wear, I didn't bother getting proper shoes until I knew that running was for me, so I just wore regular trainers. I would probably not get mega expensive shoes until you KNOW running is for you. That's just me though.

Good Luck! xoxo
