I originally thought the Ullrey set was designed to get you to 5K in 12 weeks, but somehow I got the information wrong -- it's actually nine weeks! I'm just going to see how each week goes before I determine if I can really do this in nine weeks, especially since I am still over 200 pounds. The first 5K I was looking at wasn't until April 18 (with the second in early May), so I have some time to extend some weeks if they don't go too well where I don't feel comfortable or I feel like I'm just hanging on by the skin of my teeth. It's hard to believe that only doing this three times a week for nine weeks (27 times total) is going to be enough for me to "get there." I may surprise myself, but at least I have some wiggle room.
For those who may be interested, here are the links to the two podcasts:
The second one also has podcasts for 8K and 10K runs as well, if anyone is so inclined. ;)
Additionally, there is a link to Cool Running who is behind the Couch-to-5K program. You can also follow them on Facebook:
