The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Couch to 5K Edition

For those who’ve missed the hints over the last week or so, I’ve been working on the Couch 2 5K program. I’ve tried going through it before, but I pushed myself too hard through it and wound up with an ankle injury.

This time, I’m taking it slower. If I can’t execute a week without feeling completely blitzed after each exercise, I’ll repeat it. I expect it to take significantly longer than the nine weeks suggested here.

What about when winter comes? I’m going to use a local indoor track to keep going with this.

I hope to run a 5K next spring.

Can Not Being on Facebook Cost You Money? I find Facebook to be useful for sharing ideas with my social network. If I want to ask around for a good deal on a new washing machine, for example, I’ll ask on Facebook first. The social network often helps me out. (@ squirrelers)
