Run4Life Zero to 30 Minutes (Couch to 5k) Beginner Running Course Hengrove...
Mon, 1 May 2017, 19:30 – Mon, 26 Jun 2017, 20:30 BST
Have you ever wanted to be able to run? Does being able to exercise for FREE anytime, anywhere appeal? Does running just seem a bit too hard? Have you struggled to find a group to join due to timing being difficult?
**Run4Life is organising a 9 week running course aimed at complete beginners.
Week 1 starts with 60 seconds jogs with walk breaks, slowly increasing the running and decreasing the walking over the weeks until you can run continuously for 30 minutes (please note most people don't run 5k in 30 minutes for quite a while). This group brings together like-minded people to experience ths highs and lows of the journey together over the weeks.
*Sessions start at 7.30pm, giving you time to get back from work/ put the kids to bed first.
**Aged 14 plus, so feel free to bring your teenager and do the course together!!
****Starts (Bank Holiday) Monday 1st May, running until Monday 26th June 2017. (9 weeks in total)
*****The group meet in Hengrove Park Leisure Centre.
********Each week we provide you with a different exercise to try which will help strengthen key running muscles and help to prevent injury.
The sessions last an hour, we start with a warm-up and some mobilisation to get ready to start the session, which will be a combination of running and walking. As the weeks progress the run times become longer and the walk times reduce. We end with a cool down and a stretch. At the end of the course the group will take part in a local 5k together. Feel free to ask your leader any questions at any time. You will be provided with a running plan, and will need to aim to do 2 more run-walks (homeworks) a week to help you get to your goal. Why not meet up with one of your new running buddies and tackle it together?
If you have a holiday planned, don't worry just take your trainers and the plan and you can do this on holiday and keep up with the group.
You will be given access to our friendly Run4Life Bristol Facebook group - a closed supportive community for all past and present course members.
So sign up today, and tell your friends. All you need is a pair of trainers!!
This course is being offered for FREE by Bristol City Council ;-)
