Couch to 5K for 2022
Couch to 5k is a running plan which normally takes 9 weeks to complete, with each run lasting between 20-30 minutes. Couch to 5k plans are designed for people who have never ran before, but want to start running. The 9 weeks of a couch to 5KM running plan are split into 3 running sessions, which gradually get longer. Couch to 5KM plans begin with alternating walking and then progresses from there. So what ever your fitness level you can get to that 5KM goal.
