I recently downloaded an awesome application called “C25K;” also known as “The #1 Couch to 5k Running App”. It is 100% free and helps get your couch-potato-behind ready for a 5k in eight weeks! Some of the features are:
- You alternative between walking (YAY!) and running until you build strength.
- C25K is designed for people who are just taking-up running (or for people like me, who raises an eyebrow to the dreaded word: “run”).
- C25K is an eight week plan.
- You work-out 3 times a week (totally doable), ideally with breaks between days (woot for breaks!).
- Each workout session is from 30-40 minutes long; including a 5 minute warm-up and 5 minute cool-down.
Here’s what the app. looks like!
