Jenn B Couch to 5K Tribe

Contributorgold Jenn B A friend of mine actually used the app "Couch to 5k" and completed her first race with me this summer. The finish line was very emotional for her and I'm grateful to have shared the moment with her. Everyone starting out should use this app. There is also a 5k to 10k that is really good.

Julie T Couch to 5K Tribe

Julie T I have found your website recently and is pretty encouraging. I have downloaded 5k runmeter on my phone. It is a 10 week training for coach to 5 k (as well as 10k, half and full marathons). It also tracks all sorts of other activities. I am 42 years old and have never ran in my life:). I have started my 5 k training. I am on week 2 and find it difficult to push myself to get out there 3 times a week but once I am out there I feel great and the sense of accomplishment and pride feels even better. If I can do it anyone can:)

That's great encouragement!! I'm just starting out on this program, after being a hermit for far too long and suffering from agoraphobia. See you posted this 4 months ago - how's it going??

I would strongly suggest that you have a look at the 'walking to Running' challenge which I know someone else has just started to take. This is a typical walk / run plan, is progressive and defines each and every training session.
