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!

Nothing like getting your hopes dashed and your dreams trampled all over. I'm sure some miserable person is quite pleased to hear about that.

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