Couch to 5K

A massive congratulations to our recent Couch to 5k group who after a 9 week training plan, completed the Lochend Woods 5K Park Run on Saturday, with the help of one of our run leaders Lindsay English.

Looking forward to seeing you at our Wednesday evening club runs.

What is Couch to 5K? Couch to 5K is a running plan for absolute beginners. It was developed by a new runner, Josh Clark, who wanted to help his 50-something mum get off the couch and start running, too. The plan involves 3 runs a week, with a day of rest in between, and a different schedule for each of the 9 weeks.

You can download a easy to follow running plan from the NHS website, or if you need help to get into the swing of it keep an eye out for our next session.
