Dublin Front Runners A.C. are launching their annual “Couch to 5K” programme on Saturday, April 14th to coincide with the Dublin Pride Run which will take place on Friday 22nd June.
The aim is to get you into shape so that you can participate in the Pride Run. The Pride Run is a great social event and we hope to make the Couch to 5K training sessions an enjoyable and sociable experience, they’re calling all men and women to dust off the trainers and join them in the Phoenix Park.
Cost is €40 and that includes membership of the club till December 2018 and insurance to run with the club. See Facebook event here.
“Even if you feel completely unfit and haven’t done much more than walk to the shop for years, don’t worry, you can do it – it just takes a bit of will and organization. Don’t forget that getting fit is not just about training regularly – it’s also an attitude of mind. Every bit counts so why not leave the car at home, go for a swim, or pull that rusty old bike from the garage and use it.
“Your first priority is to get fit is to train. This can be as simple as taking a half hour stroll at least three times a week. Get used to being on your feet for that length of time, and then try to walk a bit faster. If you can walk for 30 minutes and still feel ready for more, you’re ready to get started on our training schedule.”
The programme starts on Saturday 14th April @ 10am in the Phoenix Park, the meeting point is the Papal Cross Car park.
If you would like to register your interest in the programme please contact Sandra and Patrick via [email protected], we’re happy to answer any questions you may have and hope to see you soon.
