Getting off the couch is half the battle! But if a person can walk for five minutes, they will be able to set their goals toward a 5k run in just a few weeks. That is where a Couch to 5k training plan comes in!
Workouts include a warm-up, running for a short period of time, walking, repeat, and a cooldown. The more the weeks progress, the intervals change for that the person is running more and walking less. By the last week, participants can run just over three miles without stopping. Members will receive a weekly check in with education specific to their stage in the program, gear suggestions, nutrition/fueling strategies, and motivation along the way.
