Couch to 5K – Series 2 !

Our autumn Couch to 5k group is two-thirds of the way through the nine-week programme, as I write, and will tackle the last work-out on Wednesday 8th November, 30 minutes of non-stop running.

On the Saturday afterwards, we’ll all go to Peacehaven parkrun ( for  9 am. Parkruns are free, weekly 5k timed runs at which everyone, fast or  slow, is welcome. Register beforehand at, print off your barcode, and remember to bring it with you on the day.

We’ve been so impressed by the progress that everyone in the Couch to 5k group has made. Thanks for coming and for sticking with it. Thanks too to everyone in the club who has helped lead the groups, especially Simon who’s led the fast group, and to Joe from Gingerfit.

If you have any ideas for ways to improve the way we organise Couch to 5k, please let me know ( or catch me on a Wednesday). This is the second time we’ve run Couch to 5k, I hope we’ll do it again, and I’m sure there’s lessons we can learn.
