I used to run and race, even did so while I was drinking but I am too old for that now. It's one or the other. Has anyone tried this program "Couch 2 5K"? If not, anyone want to try it with me? I am 9 days AF today :)

Colbe - I did this recently, but on a treadmill, am just about to start running outside, I want to do a 10k in August.

There are various podcasts which are great to help with timing and pace, if you want I can find the links.

Why not hop into the June Abbercizers thread?

Thanks Sweaty! I will when I get back from my run. I just went to good will and spent 10$ on BRAND NEW running bra and shirt...got some shorts and a pair of sneaks that will do for now (Hilfiger). 10 bucks! How cool. I am still dying from the other day, but what the hell...pain is good!

Cool deal! I just ran down the road (1 mile and walked 1.5) and I think I am going to die. Man, I am outta shape! I can't wait to race again!!

Try taking it a little slower, I started walking 2 mins, running 2 mins and built it up from there.

Slower...I know, I know. Well, I will be slow tomorrow...in fact I will be lucky to be able to get out of bed! I miss the pain. :)

hey Colbe, I'd be really itnerested in doing this with you! I used to race for my school a couple of years ago, but getting out of bed and running in the morning never seems as desireable after a heavy night! I'm modding presently, but would be really happy to join in on the programme, have been lookign for an excuse to get back into running for a long time.
