today

i started a program called c25k. it means "couch to 5k" and takes you from a lump on the couch to being able to run a 5k in about 9 weeks. a nice man named Robert set the program to music telling you when to run and when to walk and made it a free podcast you can dl at the c25k website. Today i did day one week one and i didn't die! I need to do it 2 more times and then I can most onto week 2. I don't know if I'll be able to finish the program, but i'm looking forward to the challenge and possibility of running a 5k by the fall and then actually signing up for a race and doing it.

I've seen a lot of people on SP doing this program and they seem to love it. The good thing is if you're not ready, you just don't move on to the next week. Good luck, Jilly. And have fun.

Jilly, I've known dozens of folks on the Atkins boards who have successfully completed this program I think it really works! Best luck to you!
