MS to 5K?

I’d give anything to run again. Not that I was a runner… ever… but I was able to run once a long time ago.  I also used to dance and workout regularly.

Now, I just want to be able to even speed walk without limping.  I have good days and bad.  My good days are awesome and I can jog a little.  I even started participating in Zumba classes on Mondays, where I last about 15-20 minutes before my left leg starts to give out.  But then I have bad days sometimes where I am limping after just a few minutes of walking.  I am wondering if I should just keep pushing through these “bad” days and just keep walking (or limping) my way to running a 5K one day.  I mean, you’d think that if I’d keep up with it that eventually my left leg would play nice and get strong enough to allow me to be as active as I want to be.

MS to 5K, or rather Couch to 5K, seems to be something that’s been running (pun totally intended) through my head lately.
