Couch to 5k simplified

1. Commit to running 3 -4 days a week.

2. Commit to a minimum of 6 weeks to train.

3. Increase mileage: week 1 & 2: .5-1.5 mile, week 3 & 4: 1.5-2.5 miles, week 5 & 6 2.5- 3.5 miles.

4. Try to eat better, cut out processed sugars and increase intake of vegetables, protein and water.

5. Don’t over complicate it. Have fun. Time yourself once a week just so you can see progress but don’t obsess over you times or technical gear. Find a friend or spouse to run with and just get out and do it.
