Are you ready to take control of your fitness goals for the new year? Why not train for a 5k! This 9-week program is designed for beginning runners to get off the couch and on to the pavement (or treadmill in the chilly weather).
The experts at Cool Running came up with a fantastic training schedule which my podcasts will follow.
Week 1 has us going for a 5 minute walking warm up and then intervals of 60 seconds running and 90 seconds of walking. The music used includes:
The Midnight Juggernauts - This New Technology
Moneypenny - Love Will Tear Us Apart
Kid Sister - Get Fresh
Amanda Blank - DJ
Spinnerette - Sex Bomb
Plaisir de France - Le Responsable Revisite
