From Couch to 5K
Getting your running started, is tough. So it can really help to know that you’re going about it in a sensible way, getting into good habits and are part of a “team” of others going through the same thing.
These courses are aimed at getting you from not being able to run for more than a few minutes at a time, to being able to run steadily for 20 to 30 minutes. You might also like to consider a 5k Parkrun on completion of the course, to put your stake firmly in the ground!
The 6 week courses consist of one session per week plus homework (additional runs and exercises as part of an overall fitness plan).
The first session of each course, is a run plus theory session lasting about 1.5 hours.
Each week we focus on a different aspect of running, to help you to get into some good habits and to avoid injuries
- what you wear, including trainers & bras
- how to run
- healthy eating
- strengthening your body
- flexibility & stretching
- the importance of rest & recovery
The course cost includes annual membership of runnyhoneys (for this calendar year), your walk-to-run programme, 6 theory sessions with handouts, 2 fitness tests (before and after) and a lot of friendly guidance and advice.
All courses are led by a qualified Run Leader or Coach.
January 2020 course now underway. Next course will be after Easter.
runnyhoneys takes a common sense view of the art of running and translates it into plain English. Then we can help you to achieve your goals without wading through huge amounts of scientific terms – “running techno-babble”!
