Windsor House - Couch to 5K

Tuesday 12.30pm meeting in Reception


Think you can’t run? Surprise yourself.

Just because you don’t run doesn’t mean you can’t. If you can walk for half an hour, chances are that you can pick up the pace and give running or jogging a try.

BBC Get Inspired has teamed up with Public Health England’s One You campaign to bring you the Couch to 5K programme. It has been especially designed for people who have done little or no running.

In this 9 week plan, you will work on your running 3 times a week. By the final week you will be running for half an hour, or approximately 5K.

And you won’t be on your own - choose your trainer from some familiar faces. Radio DJ, Jo Whiley; comedian and actor, Sanjeev Kohli; 13 time Olympic and World Championship gold medallist, Michael Johnson and comedian Sarah Millican will talk you through your run and support you every step of the way.

This challenge builds in time and effort, so you’ll constantly be impressed with what you can do if you push yourself a little.
