Thank you for the response! I was thinking of starting the couch to 5k program this spring or summer when my son decides to sleep through the night. Right now I am so sleep deprived that I can’t consider serious exercise. How many times per week do you run in comparison to the strength training? Do you get to a point where running is enjoyable?

As far as diet goes, I’m recovering from bulimia so I really don’t want to do anything remotely restrictive. That being said, now that I don’t restrict I crave fairly ‘healthy’ foods and rarely want meat or anything heavy in fat. I know diet can be very effective with exercise, but I think that’s just too risky in my situation.

One more thing- my boyfriend was a runner and ran on a fractured femur (a result of running). Injuries like this have given running a bad rap- is this just a consequence of over training?

Thanks so much for responding!
