Anyone point me to some simple getting started programs? I will be in the gym for around 45 mins after work 5 days a week whether i like it or not (work and traffic is putting paid to that. I train 3 days a week with weights already but would like to incorporate an early evening run on a treadmill with that. I have ran quite a bit but years ago and am looking for something to get me up to a decent 5-7 miles per day. Any pointers or links?

Nice to meet y'all too!

someone who knows better will probably be along in a moment. i didn't do it myself but i believe the 'couch to 5k program on the runners world site is good.

Thanks for the reply! Yes i have looked briefly at the runners world site, but was hoping to get involved in something within this site/forum? Like the thought of being part of something :)

I will take a look at some of the runners world programs, many thanks !!

Well, this morning i went and did a weight session, registered here and was that keen that i even went back (!!) the gym to complete my first run. 4 miles in (cough, cough..) minutes. Killer even going slow and walking a few times....but miles covered so all happy!!!

I followed the RW beginners programme as part of my rehab programme following knee surgery and found it worked for me. I'm now trying to build on that and am up to around 5 miles continuous running.

Hi Girlie, thanks for the pointer...i will look at the beginners programme to :) For now i will try to stick to the one i linked to but i might be a bit over-excited...remembering fitter days and thinking i am still that fit!!! See how it goes, but i think being active in a forum like this might be a great motivation :)

Got something to say?
