thank you Report
The beginner program is NOT realistic, safe or recommended. Expecting someone who is brand new to running or even new to exercise to run for 12 minutes--about a mile--is inviting injury and setting them up for frustration and a sense of failure.

Check out Couch to 5K apps instead. They start with intervals of 60 seconds of jogging and 2 minutes of walking--at whatever pace is comfortable for the individual, not a pace dictated by the program. That is realistic, safe, and very effective for any one new to running. Those new to exercise should build up walking stamina first. Report

Love interval training! I've tried several methods. Really enjoying the ones which are cued to music and voice instructions in the music so I don't have to watch the clock but can focus on full out activity and then moving things down a notch or two.... Report
Thanks Report
