I started out running using Ease to 5K app on my Iphone. I have NEVER ran in my life, always hated running, and was 55 yrs old. A friend suggested I run to help me lose the weight that I wanted. Had worked up to running continuously for 30 minutes. For a 55 year old female, I was pretty stoked!!! But, I had reached a wall and had NO desire to put out effort and training time required to go past 30 minutes continuous running! I live in Texas and the heat/humidity is NOT your friend. I was seriously considering quitting because I knew I couldn't keep up the continuous running not with summer coming!!
I know my limits and running continuously in the Texas heat/humidity was my Achilles heel. My first 5K race my goal was to run continuously without walking. I accomplished it but when I finished, I was not exactly "socialable". Two weeks later I ran my second 5K and I found myself having to take 2 quick "cheat" walk breaks or I was going to die! I was SO upset with myself! I even did the walk breaks in areas where I felt no one would see me! I had this mind set that if you walk - you're a sissy! Whimp! After this race is when I met my new found friend!!!!! Galloway run/walk method! LOVE IT!!! LOVE IT!!! It was my running salvation! I knew I could take on the summer heat/humidity because of the walk breaks. I had to come to grips with 2 "ego" issues: 1. slow pace and 2. not running continuously. I'll be honest, 2 months of using the walk/run training method, I am STILL dealing with these 2 issues.Read more ›
All I know is that I've hated running my entire life. I ran for softball (during practice and games) but NEVER otherwise.
I took Ann Ringlein's Beginner's Luck (Lincoln Running Company), which employs the Galloway run-walk-run class that runs 8 weeks over the summer in Lincoln, NE. Several years in the running, this class has over 400 people every summer--folks who have never run before. Why? Because the Galloway method is a safe (non-injury-inducing), relatively painless (no running is completely painless, but I don't resent having to run now because it's actually "enjoyable!), and goal-oriented method of learning to run more than to the bathroom or mailbox.
I highly recommend this resource. He has run more than 100 marathons, but has dedicated himself (Like Ann Ringlein) to helping others be healthy and learn to run (AND LOVE IT!).

It has gotten me started on the road to great exercise and possibly a 5 K race in the future.Published 4 months ago by Candace Segar
Jeff Galloway's run-walk-run has already gotten me through a 10K run in fairly brutal conditions (heat and high humidity). It is a handy reference for me to have.Published 22 months ago by David R. Easter
I have run many 5k and 10k races this will be my first 1/2 and this book has given me the confidence I will succeed.Published on February 21, 2014 by Jameel Gavin
Involves a lot of reading which of course is expected from a book, but for me I wanted to know just certain things about the running process etc. a little scattered.Published on June 28, 2013 by Ciarra Larkin
