Just a heads up for anyone looking to get running a reasonable distance. I have just trialled a version of the "Couch to 5K" running programme, best thing is its a freebie! from here Robert Ullreys website You need a MP3 player as they are set to music and obviously a decent pair of trainers. It is a 9 week programme and gradually builds you up from a alternating 1 min run/ 1.30 min walk to a non stop 30 minute run by week 9. If you are looking to get reasonably fit, start running again or try something different, give it a go! The only downsides to it I found were some of the timings were out when timed with a stopwatch IE the 28 minute run was nearer to 26 minutes. The only other thing is the program is aimed at people who have done absolutely no phys for ages so you may find you can run 5K in a quicker time than the podcast tells you, for example running the final 30 minute run which was meant to be your 5 K, if measured how far I was running on www.goodrunguide.co.uk and found I was running nearly 7.5k in 30 minutes. Hope this helps some of you fatbodies out there!
