Sounds like a good plan. Motivation for after hip "revision" surgery. At 3 months now, still unstable and limping. I hope to start this week. Beginner level, after doing 10-15k steps a day, Fitbit, before surgery.

Would LOVE to get involved, but am recovering for an Achilles tendon injury!

If you don't know how fast your pace is..(I'm sure mine is slower than 3.5 walking), how do you know how many repetitions to do to ensure you get the distance? I'm assuming I will need a pedometer, but I have never had any luck with them ( I have a long waist and don't measure correctly).

Couch to 5K program and the 5K101 program are both much better than this. They also have podcasts you can download on itunes to make training easier.

I'm planning to do a 5k in December, and will start out by using the walk/jog training plan. I've never been a runner, but that is one of my goals in transforming my life.

I'm starting this program because I'll be joining the Air Force! I'm a little bit of a couch potato right now but by week 8 hopefully I'll have shown major improvement! Can't wait to be in tip top shape!

I think I'm going to try this program. I am going to try the walk/jog combo to begin and see how I do there. I'm not scheduled to run a 5k but if I can finish the program it might help me find the courage to sign up for one!

I'm planning on running a 5k in September - I think I can not only run, but run competitively with this program... maybe ;)
