Sign up for the Running Rookie training program if you have never run before, or there's been a very long time since you've run regularly. Prerequisite: In order to have success with this program, you must be able to walk briskly for one hour, 3 times per week minimum, OR you must be in a regular aerobic exercise program (spin, kickboxing, aerobic classes, etc.) leading up to the start of this program.

Sign up for the Beginner program if you have some running under your belt. By that, we mean that you've completed a 5k in the past 6 months and have been running somewhat regularly leading up to the start of the program...OR you are a fairly regular runner coming back from an injury or illness. Prerequisite: The first week of the program you MUST be able to run at an easy, conversational pace for 2 minutes straight (any pace).
