RunnerDude's 12-Week Beginning Running Programby Thad McLaurin
RunnerDude's 12-Week Beginning Running Program will take you from no running to running 30 minutes solid by the end of the 12 weeks. The program's focus is building endurance, not pace or distance, making it perfect for beginners. The program consists of several videos covering Form, Function, Gear, and The Plan as well as Weekly Tips for during the 12 weeks of running.
You will need a good pair of running shoes and a watch or interval timer. I recommend the GYMBOSS interval timer (http://www.gymboss.com) or any phone app interval timer will do as well. You'll also need to download the 12-week plan, Good Running Form handout, and the Stretching handout (all included in pdf format).
I have worked with hundreds of beginning runners. My mission is to get beginners into running safely while at the same time, building their endurance gradually over a period of time. I want you to love running and to continue it beyond the 12-week program. Running is hard, but my program will ease you into so you won't be mentally or physically overwhelmed. I'm a certified RRCA running coach, a USATF certified running coach as well as a NPTI and ACSM certified personal trainer. I one RunnerDude's Fitness, a personal training studio and running coaching facility in Greensboro, NC. I'm also the founder and host of RunnerDude's Blog (http://www.runnerdudesblog.com) which is read by runners in over 90 countries.

Running is my passion and helping others learn to run safelfy for the first time or train for a PR in a marathon is my life's mission.
