I have been thinking about starting a 10 week fitness program recently but have been hesitant since it includes a dreadful thing, running. I have always admired runners and wished I could enjoy running but frankly running hates me.
I have tried to pick up
A friend told me about the Couch to 5K program that lasts 10 weeks and by the end of it you would be able to finish a 5K (without walking the entire time). I viewed the schedule and it intimidates me at about week 5. Jogging for 10 minutes sounds like torture, I mean I couldn't even run the mile in high school under 10 minutes (can you see now that I'm super slow).
I really want to sign up for a 5K and make it a goal to do one by the end of the year but truthfully I'm nervous. Has anyone done a program like the Couch to 5K? Do you think it works/will work? Any runners out there with advice?
