Are you all using Couch to 5K program on Spark or other one?
I too wanted to start running, started over enthusiastically and ended up hurting me, so I am once again ready to do this, but want to do it right.

Hi Becky.

Remember that running comes in all forms. When you are beginning, it comes in a run/walk form. . . and even when you aren't so beginning. Last summer, on those really hot and humid days, I did all of my running in a run/walk method, just to keep my heart rate down.

Go at your own pace. You can do this!

Welcome! Sounds like you need to get out there and actually run while you are motivated =0) Are you using the C25k plan? That's how many of us here started.

Hi. I'm new to this group for the second time...I think. I joined a while back with full intention of actually running...and I never got motivated to do it. So, here I am today. Rejoining. Re-committing to running. Hi. I'm Becky and I want to be a runner.
