In January we are running a programme for parents and friends led by Taz from Run Birmingham. It is a 9 week programme called ‘Couch to 5K’ where we hope to be able to combat high levels of inactivity. We have our own coach, Taz, who will support us with basic running advice including routines for warming up, stretching and cooling down. We will each have a copy of the programme which includes information that allows us to access weekly podcasts to support us.
We are using the weeks leading up to Christmas as signing up and taster sessions. Come along and join us on Tuesday mornings and get fit in 2017.
Running is free and you can do it anywhere. It has a huge impact on your physical and mental health. The Couch to 5K programme starts gently and builds up each week, finishing off with a 5K run. (The 5k run is optional.)
