Go to mapmyrun.com and set up an account through your preference (email or Facebook). This is a free account and is sponsored by Under Armour. You can log in your meals, your goal, and set up custom routes.
The sample below focuses on setting up different routes for variety and enjoyment. For instance, this runner/walker has three different routes set in mapmyrun: two are for walking and one is for running. The routes should offer a variety and small hills and flat terrain to give your heart a little work and recovery.
Week one is where you will set your goal in the program on mapmyrun. See the following to help you.

THIS IS FREE.
