Do you want to learn to run?

To follow up the “how to choose a running shoe” post from a few days ago, here is an article that  shows one version of the “Couch to 5k” program, which is very popular for people just learning to run.  It suggests doing walking and running intervals to help ease your way into running.  If you don’t like this program, you will find many others by doing a google search.

Interval training is helpful as it makes learning to run easier on the body, making running more enjoyable and decreasing the likelihood for injury.  People also like the way that intervals break up the run into manageable sections.

The nice weather makes it a great time to start a running program, and if you start now you will have made amazing progress by the end of the summer.
