Couch 2 Century

Know the Couch 2 5k sites? Here is one: http://www.c25k.com/

How about a "Couch 2 25 miles" or a "Couch 2 Century" (and on and on) type thing?

Well, a better analogy might be a couch to marathon program.

Yes, probably a better analogy for the 100. However for people of all levels it would be nice to have a generic plan to get to 5 miles, 10 miles, .... , 100 miles.

Since 100 miles is my immediate goal I like the chart you provided, thanks for the point.
