Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K is a running plan for absolute beginners. It was developed by a new runner, Josh Clark, who wanted to help his fifty-something mum get off the couch and start running, too. The plan involves 3 runs a week, with a day of rest in-between, and a different schedule for each of the 9 weeks.
