About this run
Our 8 week plan is more gradual than the popular "Couch to 5k" plan, with just 1 walk/jog interval session a week, but supplemented with two 40 minute walks which will help to improve leg strength and aerobic capacity. Each participant will be provided with a weekly plan which will include a main interval session to complete in their own time whilst adhering to current social distancing rules. A "progress chart" will also be provided at the beginning of the 8 weeks to help you keep on track and motivated. Each member of the group will have access to and receive advice from group leader Joe Watts who is an experienced UK Athletics Endurance Running Coach. At the end of each week you will be provided with the opportunity to discuss your progress and raise any questions that they may have during an online group chat via Zoom or, if you prefer, over the phone.
