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!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
