I think a lot of the so-called "beginner" programs are too intense for someone just starting out. I recently read Galloway's book, and he recommends starting with just 5 seconds every minute. I'm taking that a step further with 5 seconds every 5 minutes. Galloway makes a compelling case for starting slowly and for incorporating walk breaks, even for elite athletes. Report

I don't even have the slightest motivation to participate in a marathon! I can't even blame my age. I know older people run marathon's. I wouldn't mind doing a walking marathon. We don't have any around here that i'm aware of Report

This is just what I needed to read to get me to where I want to be, running is one of my goals. :) Report
I'm finishing up a Couch to 10k program. I have tried it a bazillion times before, but this time I gave myself permission to do a week over and over if I needed to while still trying to hold myself accountable for doing the hard stuff.

Well, I found that I didn't get as freaked out this time. I don't know if it's because I have myself permission to take it slow, but I just finished up Week 9. Every session I'm scared, but every session I'm so proud and surprised when I do it.

It is so worth it. Report
