Couch to 5 K

silhouette-and-reflection-of-woman-running

Here is the schedule I chose to do for my 5 K training.  Having a schedule like this seems to motivate me more.

This is only a three day a week schedule and so I added two other days of exercising activities because I like to exercise at least 4-5 days a week. (Well that is my ideal plan.)

Here is my weekly exercise plan.

Long Run:  This is when I do a run that is longer than anything I have done that week.  It’s sort of like the test for the week.

And here is the 9 week Couch to 5 k schedule (for the treadmill) I am doing three days a week, Monday, Tuesday & Thursday.

I got this schedule at c25k.com

I also use the c25k app so I don’t have to remember all of this minute by minute stuff as I am exercising.

The app is my timer and tells me when I need to start jogging and when I can walk.  Brilliant!
