Start Running Easier
Placed between my walking group and the c25k group this is a real beginners running group. It’s been split into two 10 week blocks to move you forward slowly with no surprising “jumps” between runs or weeks. Each 10 week block of this beginners running program has it’s own aims and ambitions moving you towards the goal of running comfortably for a continuously 30 mins
If you have any health issues that you think might affect your ability to exercise, we recommend that you talk to your doctor before starting. If you tell them you are planning to start a gradual, progressive exercise plan, they are likely to encourage you on your way.
In this first 10 week block of the beginners running you will start at the first session, with the aim to alternate 30 seconds of walking and 30 seconds of jogging for 10 minutes, with a warm-up at the beginning and a cool-down at the end.
By the end of a 10 week beginners’ block, you should be able to jog continuously for 15 minutes.
This second block of classes follow on from the block one, so we recommend that you should be able to jog continuously for 15 minutes before starting.
At your first session you will aim to alternate three minutes of jogging with two minutes of walking, repeated five times. There will be a warm-up at the beginning and a cool down at the end.
By the end of the 10 week block, you should be able to jog continuously for 30 minutes.
