Couch to 5K Program

Several people have asked me about how to get the Couch 2 5K program. There are several ways you can get a copy of this plan. The way I enjoy it is by using my iPhone and downloaded an app called 5K Runner. If you search Couch 2 5K programs in the app store, you will see there are tons of options. Choose one that fits you best. I really like the one I have because it gives me a visual while I am running, a motivational quote, rings a bell which I change from walking to running, and it is something that I have on the go all the time so I can access it at home or at the gym.

The other way you can find the plan is by going to Cool Runnings website. They have an outlined plan of the different days each week and the directions. With the computer version, you are on your own for knowing when to walk and when to run. It definitely is not bad because you time yourself 60 seconds run, 90 seconds walk off and on for 20 minutes. Not bad at all. :) You can also join the Couch 2 5K program on Facebook!

I would LOVE for some of you to do this with me if you are interested! It is a 90 day program so we will finish around the middle of October which is PERFECT for the Ray Tanner Home Run 5K! It will be nice and cool during October (I hope!) it it will be perfect weather to run. Let me know if you have questions or if you are interested in running/walking in the Ray Tanner Home Run 5K! Side Note: Please don't think I am running like a marathoner! I would say that I am a slow runner or a jogger. I still have a lot of weight to lose so I am not a fast runner by any means. I promise you that you can keep up with me if you decide to run with me in October! :)

Don't think you can run? Check this amazing video out again! I PROMISE anyone can do this!
