Couch to 5K

I am not a runner.  I want to think I am, but I really am not.  I get really motivated to start running, but I just don’t go as far or as fast as I want to and I end up getting discouraged and quit.  Usually, this happens right about the time I get to the point when I can run two miles straight.  I had finally decided I was going to give up on running and focus on being a walker when someone told me about the Couch to 5K app on the iPhone. About 2 weeks ago, I decided to give it a go.  So far it has been an easy work out.  It starts out with a 5 minute walk and then has you alternate walking and running. (I have been using the 5 minute walk time as a 5 minute jog time.)  As the weeks go on, they add run time and minimize walk time.  As of today, I have completed Week 3, Day 1 of the couch to 5K program.  Since this starts out slowly and helps you build stamina, I feel like I may be able to keep this up.  I guess we’ll have to see as the runs start getting longer if this is going to work for me!!
