Couch to 5k program

Recommended Posts

I heard about this program on here but saw that it didn't have a thread dedicated to it. I just talked Matt into doing it with me, yay!! We are going to start tomorrow and do Monday, Wednesday and Friday since those are the days were he doesn't work late. I hope we stick to it! Has anyone else done it? What did you think of it?

I've done it and it really does work. I have never been a runner and I started this program last year and it really did get me ready for the 8K I ran last spring. I am on the program again this year for my April 8K...good luck!

I used it to just start my weight-loss, now I'm to training for a half-marathon. I used the podrunners intervals instead, but it was essentially the same program.

I did it! okay, that's a lie. I started it.

I got up to being able to run for 5 straight minutes, which for me is a HUGE accomplishment. I think it was walk 1.5, run 5, walk 3, run 5, walk 3, run 5, walk 3... or something like that when I quit. I actually got sick and then completely unmotivated. I really did like the program though and it was amazing how well it worked. I could barely run 30 seconds before that!! AND, i can now still run 5 minutes straight... so that's a small accomplishment for me (yes, all you runners can now laugh at how much of a running wuss I am! :))

Oh, I'm not laughing, Trish! I for sure can't do 5 minutes. I think I have a slight case of asthma but was never diagnosed b/c whenever I feel winded I just get control over myself and make it go away.

 

I am excited about it b/c I feel like the small increments are totally doable!

It looks like a great way to start. A year ago when i starting training to run I used a similar program. Now i can go for an hour at a 6mph speed on a tread. Keep at it :) it will definitely work!

    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
