I tried the Couch to 5K program about a year ago. I didn't get very far because my attention span is about as long as a goldfish's and I kept losing track of the time. (Did I run for 2 or 6 minutes? Is it time to walk? Where am I?)
So, when my work said they were starting running groups featuring the program, I was sold. I can follow someone who is better at time management than me?
I know there are apps out there that will tell you when to run/walk etc. I don't have a smart phone. I know. I may as well be driving a Yugo with a pet Dodo. My father-in-law can't even check his voicemail, and he has a smart phone.
We start the plan next week. Wish me luck! If you see a group running, I'll be the one with the Walkman in my fanny pack with Velcro shoes on.
