What makes this training program so doable for non-experienced runners is that it alternates walking and running for the first six weeks. The first week you walk 90 seconds and alternate running for 60 seconds for 20 minutes with the first and last 5 minutes are walking. This will ease you into running without feeling too exhausted. The second week the running is increased by 30 seconds. It is so doable. I'm serious, anyone can do this. I used to hate running, but now I love it and can't wait to do it. There is even an iPhone app for C25K, which makes it even easier since the voice tells you when to walk and when to run. It also lets you play music at the same time. It is AWESOME! Thanks Big Sis for telling me about C25K!
