This is a running plan designed to get complete beginners from couch potato to running 5k (or 30 minutes) in nine weeks.
It is:
- Achievable - starting with a mix of running and walking and building up slowly
- Virtually free - all you need is a decent pair of trainers and an MP3 player (a regular mobile phone will do)
- Easy - a motivating 'personal trainer' tells you exactly when to stop and start.
The plan sets three runs per week with a day of rest between each run.

Bryonni ,

Brilliant series!!!

This is actually achievable!!! I’ve done it and I’m an overweight 38 year old who has never run in my life. It wasn’t easy but it is doable!!! The music could be better but it’s ok. Please bring out a 5k to 10k. Thank you for this series!!! I can’t believe I did it!!!

Would like to RUN ,

Mr

I have never used such a difficult app. I still have not managed to get it on my Apple so I can transfer to my pod. Rubbish.

Brilliant

Thank you Laura. The music is mixed but that is not the important thing, your style was encouraging and successful.
