I have recently made the decision to start to improve my health and fitness and therefore I decided to do this firstly by trying to complete the couch to 5k app.
I did my first run today which consists on a 5minute warm up walk; then 7 x 60second runs with 7x 90second walks in between and then a 5 minute cool down walk . The runs and walks are alternated all the way through and it total I did 8 minutes of running. over the 9 week program you increase your running time and decrease the walking time.
I have previously used a similar app quite a few years ago and decided to give it another go as it is really enjoyable and also achievable enough so it doesn’t make me feel out of my depth.
I decided to do my run today along the canal as it is quite a flat run and I enjoy being beside the water as it is quite relaxing.
I have 2 more runs of the same routine to complete this week before moving on the next stage next week.
I would highly recommend the One You Couch to 5k app.
