I am such a cardio wimp! I get winded in like 2 minutes. I feel really stupid running 2 minutes, then stopping to walk. how did you get started?

    that's how you learn how to run - you alternate between running and then fast walking; gradually increasing your pace and then working on speed later. 

    use the couch to 5K program on your phone- it's a great app!

    thanks! I will check that out! I live on a gorgeous bike path. I just feel like the other runners see how much of a wimp I am!

    I did the c25k a few years ago but stop running. I started it up again last week it's a great program :)

    I did the couch to 5k program. I did it march 2012 and I've already ran 2 half marathons, and at least 15 other races consisting of 5k's, 10k's and mud runs since then! It really does work if you stick with it!

    I'm doing couch to 5k right now.  You start off running 60 second intervals and build up from there.  I'm about to start Week 4 and it will have me running 3 minute and 5 minute intervals.  I could barely run 60 seconds when I started....

    I would like to here everyone's tips. Even the couch to 5k wore me out.

    Honestly, I got on the treadmill, hit the 5K button, and did what I could

    Most runners aren't that rude. I've only dealt with one rude runner, and it was talking to her, not running with her (she was telling me about how she felt about the same race I had done, it was weird to see such a different perspective)

    I was captain of my xcountry and winter track team... I honestly learned to run by building stamina... Running hills... Doing sprints etc.
