Welcome to the team! You really should try using the c25k program because it takes you slowly to running longer distances. There are podcasts that you can download for free to listen to that tell you when to walk and when to run. There are different ones with different types of music, and a different podcast for each progression. You don't have to have an ipod for most of them. I don't. I just have an mp3 player. You can download them to your computer then copy them to whatever you have. The coolrunnings site mentioned has links to some, or you can also use itunes (free download to your computer) and search "c25k" and it will bring up a list of podcasts. All I've seen are free.
Good luck and you can do this!!

emoticon emoticon to the team. So many of us try to run too fast at first. I found when I slowly add speed and length of each run I do much better. emoticon

Thanks. I'll look into that. I have been walking 30 minutes a night and tying to run at least a minute at a time. Its hard, but if I stick to it and listen to people like you...I should keep up my efforts.

Have you looked at the C25K program on coolrunning.com

You build up to running slowly - It might help if you get a great base of walking for at least 30 minutes for like 2 weeks.

Hello. My name is Jennie and I want to be a runner. I have been trying for about 2 weeks now and just can't seem to run for very long. I want to learn how to stay comfortable and motivated to run when I feel frustrated with myself for not being able to run for very long. I am looking forward to being a part of this team!
