Do you want to start running? Do you want to get back into it? Following this modified C25K program will have you ready to run a 5K at A Midsummer Night’s Run!
Couch to 5K is usually abbreviated C25K. And, to put it in simple terms, it changed my life. It is the program I used to start running. And I can’t even count the number of people I know who have used it. The program uses timed intervals of running and walking that build until you can run a 5K. You can use a stopwatch or the clock on a treadmill or an app on your phone or iPod. It typically takes 9 weeks program to go from “couch” to “running a 5K.” I think it assumes that your run pace is a little quicker than reality, so I’ve stretched it into 12 weeks for you.
The program will start on May 13th. The group will meet every Sunday at 4pm at a variety of locations around town. In addition to the Sunday group run, the program will have you run/walking twice during each week.If you want to get a head-start on the program, start walking for 30 minutes a day to build your base.
Be on the lookout for more information for Couch to 5K coming out over the next few weeks!
