to the team and to the joy of running (well, it won't feel like it at first but after a couple of months it will be a joy). Definitely download (free at iTunes) the Robert Ullrey's Podcast for the C25k program. I say that because I like structure and needed a program to stay motivated. Also, a good pair of running shoes is a must. If you're feet aren't in a good pair, you'll have all kinds of problems. Happy running

First, make sure you have proper running shoes - hit your local running store. Next looking at this program www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/ind ex .shtml it is a fantastic way to go from being on the couch to running a 5K (3.1 miles). Most of all enjoy yourself.

Hello all! I am going to try running as a way to stay fit and to help me ease into another workout program. Right now when I get home I take a shower and do homework. I want to be more active than that! I figured running would be a nice way to get me out of my rut.
Any advice or tips for a newbie like me?
