Couch to 5k: Well done on week 1, and on to week 2

By Tom Roper

Thanks to everyone who turned up to the first run with the Seaford Striders Couch to 5k group. We hope you weren’t too stiff the next day!

The first session saw more than twenty new and returning runners tackle a five minute brisk walk, followed by twenty minutes alternating 60 second running and 90 second walking. I led the group around some of Seaford’s many beauty spots, including the tip, the fire station and the cemetery.

We were delighted so many people came to the first run, and we’ll arrange to have some more experienced runners to accompany the group, so everyone has company.

The group meets again at 7pm at the Downs Leisure Centre on Wednesday 29 March  – next time the evening will be light!

If you missed the first run, you’re still very welcome to come along and join in week 2. This time we’ll do a five minute walking warm-up, then run for 90 seconds and walk for 2 minutes, for twenty minutes, followed by a cool-down and some stretching.

We meet in the Olympic Lounge – just come along and ask for Tom. All welcome, especially new runners!
