Couch to 5K Training, 9th Session BEGINS July 8! Walkers & Joggers Welcome

July 8, 2013 · 6:30 PM (and Tuesday and Thursday nights following)

Braintree High School Track

Wouldn't you like to be able to run a 5K by Labor day???

If you are looking get in time to walk, want to train with us, or are runner of your own, please join us every and any Tuesday and Thursday night at BHS. To get everyone ready for a 5K, event we will be posting training events using the "Couch to 5K" training schedule. As it gets closer, I will find a 5K event to post on the calendar for our "final exam".

(we will be meeting twice a week for those who are training, so you SHOULD train the 3rd time on your own either on Saturday or Sunday to keep with the schedule)

Week 1 we are starting from scratch. Remember to bring your sneakers and some water!

Couch to 5K, Week 1 Plan:
(train 3x during the week)

Brisk five-minute warm up walk.
Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes. (8 times)
Don't worry, I'll bring the stop watch with the whistle so everyone knows when to start and stop the jogging.

(Again, please see the coolrunning link for exact schedule for all future week training plans)
