A few weeks ago I decided to start the NHS Couch25k app. I’ve always wanted to be a runner, but as someone with zero fitness levels I didn’t know where to start and I came across this programme on my app store.
For a quick run down of what the app is I pinched this statement off their website;
About the Couch to 5k app
Couch to 5K is a free nine-week running plan for people who want to be more active. It’s perfect if you’re new to running – the plan is all about starting slowly and building up gradually. Anyone can start Couch to 5K – you don’t need to be fit!
It really does do what it says on the tin, you alternate running and walking and build up to eventually do a full 30 minute run. It sounds scary I know but it really does work, I am at the start of week 6 as I tap this and yesterday I ran for 20 minutes without stopping, something I would NEVER of been able to do 6 weeks ago! I can’t recommend this app enough if you are a bit of an exercise novice like me.
Heres some snaps I have shared on my Instagram
page over the last few weeks and I will update you when I complete the whole app. Excited!
Tah daaaah! Look at me go. Haha Can’t actually wait to start week 6, bring it on!
Have you completed this app? Thinking of starting? Doing it now? Let me know 🙂
