Correct shoes. The couch to 5K program is a great way to get started and not get hurt. Do not forget rest days between runs!

Besides Ullery's pod casts, there is Pod Runner and Suz at www.kissmyblackass.org

emoticon 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 emoticon

To,

Take it slowly. Do not feel the need to run every day for it is during the rest phase that your body begins the adaptation to the demands of running.

And never underestimate the power of being fitted for a good pair of running shoes!

HAPPY SPARK RUNNING!
Nancy

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

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?
