Couch to 5k

Here we go again.
I'm going to make another attempt at running (er, jogging).
I have no plans for the remainder of 2010 to participate in any running events.  I just want to continue to work on my fitness level in the hopes of shedding a few more pounds.  That, and if I want to do another triathlon next year, I need to work on my running skills.

My plan is to start the 'Couch to 5K Running Plan' this week and work up to a 5K (3.1 miles) by the time the snow falls.  I'd LOVE to be able to build up enough strength & stamina to run 5 MILES, but I'm not sure that's in the cards.

I used the C25K plan earlier this year to train for the triathlon.  It works well (tho I stopped the plan about half-way thru and just "ran" as the event got closer... maybe not such a good idea since I injured my hip during my first 5k).  This time, I'm sticking to the plan.

Will keep you updated... wish me luck!

Good luck with the running(jogging)!

I used to get on the treadmill for half an hour every other day, but then someone told me that I had to turn it on for it to do any good, so I gave up on that...
