That sounds like a great app.  Too bad I don't have a smart phone. :(

Quoting TurboMom81:

I bought this cool iPhone App called Ease into 5K! I was never a runner before so it kind of builds you up week by week.  I'm on week three and currently my drill is 5 min warm up, Run 3 min, walk 2 min, run 1min 30 sec, walk 2 min. I do that cycle one more time than 5 minute cool down!  

I start at 6:45am! I'm back home in time to get my oldest up and ready for school!

Quoting Harris06:

Awesome! I have been thinking of doing that!

I did one like that (couch to 5k) but when summer hit, it was so hot I lost all motivation. I would rather run in the winter than the summer!

I have a flat allotment to run in, I ran a couple times in my parents town...very hilly and annoying.
