Training for a 10k

Is anyone here a runner or was a runner or wants to become a runner? I am going to do a 10k on March
29th. I can walk or run, but I'd rather mostly run. Can I train in the next 3 months and be able to
do that? I don't want to win or anything, I just want to say that I did it and get the t-shirt :)
I've never run before in my life, but I do cardio workouts 4-6 days a week. I usually just walk, but
want to incorporate jogging/running. I've never been able to run before due to large breasts (had
the breast reduction in
2002), and now I think I'm at a weight where I won't be too jiggly.

Thanks for any info, advice or comments...

Hi Brynda, Here is a link to an eight-week training program =
http://www.halhigdon.com/10ktraining/10knovice.htm I believe that you can train to do a 10K by March
29. Since you have = some time you could repeat some of the weeks in the training program. Kristine

Good luck Brynda! You'll probably be much more comfortable since you're breast reduction.

Hi Brynda,

The Runner's World web site has loads of information for training and getting started
(http://www.runnersworld.com). I found it incredibly useful and for someone who couldn't run for
more than about 30 seconds at a time, I can now run for 2-3 miles without walking breaks. Don't get
discouraged if you find jogging (even at a very slow pace) difficult to do without walking breaks
for the first few weeks. I couldn't believe how hard it was (I can do any other cardio exercise, so
why was jogging so tough?) and thought I was out of shape and pathetic. Most people have to start by
doing running/walking training, and it takes a bit of patience. Believe me, you'll feel like a
million bucks when you run your first mile non-stop!

Best of luck to you and keep us posted.

Cheers, Petal
