It’s hard to believe there was a time, not so long ago, when I couldn’t even run a quarter-mile. It always seemed like there were obstacles in my way every time I got going. One of which was the complete lack of a plan. I had no path to follow, no one to show me the way, no one to say, “Hey, get off the couch and do this today.”
In recent years, as the sport of running has become more and more popular, the Couch-to-5k Plan has emerged as a popular tool to get people on this path to fitness and health. 5k races are popular and fairly abundant in most areas. Gaining enough fitness in order to complete one is typically more achievable than you might think.
As the Ordinary Marathoner podcast has gained popularity, I often get the question, “Which Couch-To-5k program would you recommend?” The truth is, there are so many out there that I have no idea which one to recommend – I usually wind up recommending a Google search, and then I feel bad that I don’t have a more specific answer.
So I decided it was time to fix that and create the Ordinary Marathoner Couch-To-5k Program. As you all know, I am completely unqualified to design such a program, so I found someone who was – Triathlon Coach Nick Cumbo from Ascension Multisport. Nick has spent the last few weeks putting this together and we dedicated almost an entire podcast discussing it. If you have the motivation and have been just looking to find a way to get moving, here is your chance. Best of all, it’s free! We would love to hear your C-To-5k stories or questions in our Facebook discussion group. . Thank you for being an Ordinary Marathoner listener. Ready to get started?
