If you start now you would be on week 6 of the Couch to 5K program. You would be jogging/running a mile by then anyway. It seems very reasonable for you to be able to run it by then. The key to beginning running Is don't overdo it. If feels to much slow down and most of all enjoy your experiences. That is what keeps it fun and motivating for me.

I am new to running. I have never enjoyed exercise, or running for that matter but I'm going to start. I have been on my weight loss journey since October of last year, and have dropped 20lbs since then. Now, I have hit a plateau. I love being outside, and walking so I figured couch to 5k would be it for me. I have signed up for a 1 mile fun run that is on June 8, 2013. My goal is to finish, and run the whole mile. I don't have a time I want to make, I just want to make it through running. Any tips/recommendations would be wonderful. I am using the www.coolrunning.com podcast to complete it. And I plan to start Tuesday morning. I am going to use the couch to 5k along with Jillian Micheals 30 day shred on the day's I am not running, with Sundays off. I am hoping all this exercise and by changing it up I will be able to lose my last 7lbs and get down to my 135 lb goal weight by June 22, 2013. I look forward to running with you guys :)
