Thinking of getting into running again?  

Posted by Pete McBreen Thu, 24 Dec 2015 02:57:29 GMT

This was prompted by an email to the club, but thought it might be useful for other people…

Getting into running is a slow process, and how fast you can progress depends on your current level of fitness, and how active you are. What I normally suggest is first get to the point where you can comfortably do a 30 minute walk three times/week without feeling stiff, sore or any aches and pains. Always finish each walk feeling that you could have done more, and build up slowly if you are not that active currently

Once you have got to that point, increase the pace of your walk so that it is brisk, and you are having to breathe a bit faster than normal, but without pushing too hard. Again, make sure that you could always have done more when you finish your walk.

Now you are ready to start the Couch to 5K

Please note that although this is a 9 week program, the intention is to repeat any week until the week feels relatively easy. It is not about how fast you can progress, it is more about giving your body time to adapt to the stresses of running for the first time in a long time.

And then at the end of March 2016 you will be ready to join in on our 2016 Run To Footstock clinic
