Quoting i ♥ nora:" I used to be in track in middle school. My specialty was long jump, and I would do that 50 yard dash ... [snip!] ... in the winter (NJ), should I start with something else? I dont like treadmills for running, that scares me. Or, do I just run?"Try Couch to 5K. I did it, and I just ran my first 5K run this month!
Quoting ♥Mama Constantine:" Try Couch to 5K. I did it, and I just ran my first 5K run this month! I have Nike Free Run 3's. I love them! Drink tons of water! Good luck!!"
Quoting Michael Westen:" I just run. And for shoes, I wear Nike Free's. Anything with lots of plastic and rubber in the soles ... [snip!] ... knees and drinking water helps. Plus after about 2 weeks, I built up enough muscle in my legs to relieve the pressure a bit."
