Couch to 5k
Fancy getting fitter? Thinking of improving your health?
Why not include the whole family?
The NHS have launched a campaign to get more people moving. It’s called Couch to 5k: week by week. It is a running plan for absolute beginners. It was developed by a new runner, Josh Clark, who wanted to help his 50 something mum get off the couch and start running too.
The plan involves 3 runs a week, with a day of rest in between and a different schedule for each of the 9 week programme.
Couch to 5k is for everyone who wants to get more active. It is a free programme designed to be an easy way of getting fitter and healthier. It works because it starts with a mix of running and walking to gradually build up your fitness and stamina.
Running requires little equipment, but a good pair of running shoes that suit your foot type may help improve comfort. Regular running will improve your general fitness and health, could help you lose weight (when combined with a healthy diet this will be more effective) and will improve the health of your heart and lungs. There is also some evidence that it may help increase bone density in some people, which can help protect against bone disease like osteoporosis. As well as physical benefits there are also mental benefits to running. It could help to boost your confidence and self-belief; can be a fabulous stress reliever and has been shown to combat depression.
