After accomplishing our first 5k another group of ladies decided to train using the Couch to 5k. It was a great training program for those who have never ran...in recent years that is. This group ran the Turkey Trot in 2010 and did amazing. If I could tell you each one of their success stories you would be amazed.

Here is a Facebook Link to 5k: Facebook Link for couch to 5k- On their facebook page you can see a whole list of websites that will have plans on them.
If you don't have an IPod or IPhone, if is crazy because you do have to watch the clock the whole time. Just to give you a heads up, here is an example:
Week 1, Day 1 in the Couch to 10k: 5 minute Warm Up, then run 30 seconds and walk 4:30 minutes seven times.
Happy Running! Take it one mile at a time and you will get there!
Since Spring of 2009 these are the runs I have ran:
Livonia Turkey Trot - 5k November 2009
Detroit Turkey Trot - 5k November 2009
Livonia Turkey Trot- 5k November 2010
Detroit Turkey Trot- 5k November 2010
Jingle Bell Run - 5k December 2010 (I had to walk most of this because I was pushing two kids in a double stroller and the little girl started fussy at mile marker 1. It was the worst day of my life).
