Considering starting running as part of your New Year’s fitness resolution?

Heartbreak Hill Striders running club will be running a Couch to 5K program starting on Sunday February 5 for folks with little or no current fitness. We meet for eight Sundays, and then run (and complete) a 5K run. On the first Sunday a certified running coach will start you off with an introduction to running - all about benefits of running, choosing clothing, getting a shoe fitting, how the 8 week plan works, safe running tips, stretching, and more, and will answer any questions you have. You’ll receive an 8 week daily schedule which gradually will improve your fitness day by day. Then, every Sunday, the coach will check your progress in the past week, answer any individual questions, and then we complete that day's workout.  On the last Sunday we all complete the 5K and talk about how to work the base beginners running program. 

Our goal for this program is to get you, in 8 weeks, into a healthy fitness habit that will extend long beyond the 5K. Our gradual approach gets you fit safely with a low risk of injury. 

The fee for this program is $75 and includes a training plans, individual coaching, a T-shirt when you complete your 5K, and a discount towards club membership. The group will be limited to 12.

For more information, or to join the program, email Rob Flynn (coach.rflynn@gmail.com).
