This plan is designed for someone who has not been part of a regular exercise routine in a while. Whether you have been a runner in the very distant past or are completely new to running the goal of this program is to get you comfortably across the finish line of a 5K. Exercise consists of walking and running 3-5 times per week, with the goal 5K completed at the end of 9 weeks. The program is designed for people in generally good health. Those who are severely out of shape, very overweight, or with health issues should consider other options. As always you should consult with your physician prior to beginning any exercise program.
