What would you recommend as a beginner's routine for someone who wants to get into the habit of running. I would love to call myself a true runner.
I started out running most of a mile and walking a mile, now I run 5 miles everyday, want to add more miles by the end of summer so I can do a half marathon this winter
I would recommend using the couch to 5K program. Is a great beginning program to get you started. One you complete that then you can move up to a novice, intermediate and advanced program. Best of luck to you.
I am using a c25k app I am on my fourth week. I can now 3/4 of a mile now. I want to run my first 5k by the fall. I also joined a 10 miles a week here that's keeps me motivated.
I did a schedule similar to coach to 5k, went from running for just 30 seconds per interval on day 1 to running 3 miles within 6 weeks. I defo recommend it.
OK so someone told me about Gmap pedometer. Com . the gps signals on my phone sucks. On this site you can map out you running routes. It shows how many miles or km you map out. I mapped out a 1 mile in route around my neighborhood. I walk /run it 4 times around. I will use it to continue training for my first 5k. I am using c25k app from zen labs. Its working for me.
BTW I had to change my info. Karlene is Sidra
