haven't started my couch to 5k yet - been waiting for my running shoes to arrive but I am feeling a bit apprehensive about starting. A few of my friends started this programme and they have all been injured by week 3 and have had to give up. I have never ran before and have never really enjoyed any form of exercise although I would not consider myself to be a total couch potato - can anyone give me advice on how to avoid injury????? I was considering only running twice a week until my fitness level increases and by the way I'm 51 soon so not exactly a young chick.
