Did you set running a 5K as your New Year's resolution? Do you simply want to get into (or back into) shape? The City can help you make that goal by offering Couch to 5K, a fun training program. In just 7 weeks, you’ll go from ground-zero to completing your first 5K race. Join us for an information session on Friday, March 8 at noon in the Building Inspections Training Room, or join by Skype.
Couch to 5K uses an interval-training method perfected by 1972 Olympian Jeff Galloway. His method is centered on the walk-run, which reduces the impact running can have on the body. Galloway’s tactics help most people run farther and faster. There are tons of other benefits to adding a walk-to-race training.
If you’d like to register for Couch to 5K right now, please click here and choose “YES” to the question, “Are you a member of #TeamPlano?” Here’s what you need to know:
