I got up to being able to run for 5 straight minutes, which for me is a HUGE accomplishment. I think it was walk 1.5, run 5, walk 3, run 5, walk 3, run 5, walk 3... or something like that when I quit. I actually got sick and then completely unmotivated. I really did like the program though and it was amazing how well it worked. I could barely run 30 seconds before that!! AND, i can now still run 5 minutes straight... so that's a small accomplishment for me (yes, all you runners can now laugh at how much of a running wuss I am! )

I am excited about it b/c I feel like the small increments are totally doable!

I've never been able to run in my life between smoking, being out of shape, etc so it will be a great challenge and possible accomplishment for me. I can't even run for the train without getting out of breath! haha. So your 5 minutes is great work Trisha!!!
So I was googling and printed out this same plan just the other day. I unfortunately decided to take a nice fall down the stairs the next day though (trying not to take it as an omen LOL) so my foot is all bruised... but I plan to start next weekend or so when it's healed up.
Let me know how it goes when you start! I was wondering though- how are u going to time things? I need to get like a digital watch or stop watch or something

I'm hoping even starting the running will make me want to quit more if I don't before hand. I'm really excited about it and so glad you're doing it too so we can compare notes! Maybe one day we can even sign up for a 5k together since we're close!!!
