Couch to 5K this is a beginners running program of 3 sessions per week that will have you running 5K in 9 weeks. For any age and targeted at beginners, it's a great moral booster.
This is jogging for anyone whose's just starting out. Any age, any weight or any fitness level. We start out by walking with very short running intervals 30 seconds to start. As the weeks progress we increase the time we run and decrease the time we walk ever so gradually. In approximately 8 to 10 weeks you'll be running a 5K.
It's not a competition and everyone progresses at their own pace. Running is a great way to increase your stamina and endurance. You'll get a fantastic leg workout, burn calories and lose stored body fat from those difficult body areas.
Jogging is a great aerobic routine that will help to keep your heart healthy, lower your blood pressure and lower your risk of obesity and Type 2 diabetes to mention a few of it's benefits. Any form of exercise will accomplish this and much more.
