    It sounds like a great plan, I'm too embarrassed to run in public at the moment so i stick to doing 5 minute bursts on the Wii fit in the comfort of my own home!
    If i had a running buddy i might consider it, everything works better in twos!

    What does the plan involve? I forgot to pick up a mag at the meeting last night. I really wanna be able to run. I also had a bad ankle injury last year, and have not really tried it since, so wanna take it slow to begin!

    Thanks. :)

    well i basically is in sections of weeks

    week 1 you have to run (jog) 3mins then walk 3mins - i think you do this for a total of 17mins

    then each week progresses with the walking becoming less time and running more - i suppose you dont have to change weeks until you feel comfortable

    Its run one day rest next day - with 3 running sessions in the 1st week

    loll - im starting tomz with my friend so ill let you know how it goes - im soooo unfit so im just taking it easy to start with

    lulu - i have also had numerous injuries to my ankle but my advice get a good pair of support proper running shoes or even boots trainers

    Hmmmm.....I may give something like that a go. Yeah I really REALLY need some proper shoes. I have so many probs with my feet and ankles now, as I think when I had an op to pin my ankle back together they pinned it back slightly differently to how it was before. Sounds strange, but true....so yeah, really need to invest in some decent shoes!

    Goooooood luck with the running! :)

    Just make sure you have well fitting running type shoes with lots of padding in them, not old trainers. And if you are well endowed then a sports bra is a must!

    I'm thinking about it too... never been much into running, don't really enjoy it. But b/f actually keeps talking about wanting to start and he's the epitome of unfit and unhealthy lifestyle. I ordered a new sports bra from Bravissimo yesterday... then just gotta get the right shoes. Hmmmm... will I actually try it? Should be interesting.

    If I put my headphones on, I can distract myself from the tedium of exercise long enough to get some benefit from it. But I don't really enjoy it. I don't mind activity... I could do heavy gardening all day long, but just plain exercising... bleh!

    Well done Vitfa. :happy096:

    I have decided I am starting on Monday too:D:D:D

    Have been good out walking 3/4 nights a weeks and trying (lol) to do Davina's latest dvd but slipped a bit this week as worked long hours. But really looking forward to this plan and optimistic that I may actually be able to run, wish me luck and hope saturday goes well for you :whacky068:
