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 and make sure not to further injure your hip.

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...
