You've done it before. You became the fit, healthy and energetic person you wanted to be.
Do you want to be that person again?
Here’s the plan:
If you've been running at any time in recent years, you became fit. If you fell by the wayside, the good news is that, although you will have lost a bit of fitness very quickly, you'll have retained a lot of the underlying improvement that you achieved. So, while you still need to build up gradually, you don't have to start again from scratch. If you can jog for a few minutes, you can get to that magic 5k in about 5 or 6 weeks. (It may take longer, according to your individual circumstances.)
You don't have to have done our Couch to 5K programme. But you do need to have been running regularly at some point within the last couple of years.
Our plan starts with you coming along to the Couch to 5k group's week 5 workout - five minute jogs and 3 minute recovery (walking) breaks. From their week 6, the C25K group start longer non-stop workouts, following a set loop. This means they can go at their own pace, yet the leaders can keep their eye on them. You do the same, but follow the Reboot workout, going at YOUR own pace. And, like the beginners, you can get the support of the leaders as you go along.
You can build up to the full 30 minute or 5k workout to do a reprise of your own "graduation" week at a local parkrun.
If you're not quite ready, it's not the end of the world. You can continue your progression for as long as you like. You just do the workouts on your own, at your own pace and progressing at a rate you feel comfortable. You can delay until the next week, the following week ... or the week after that. You do it when you feel ready. And we'll be at the end of an email to give you any help, advice or encouragement that you need.
If you're interested, we run the Reboot programme three times a year. "Sign up" opens a few weeks before the programme starts. So, whether you're a new or a past member, if you see the "Sign up" link, take it, and fill in the registration form. (If you've registered with us before, you still need to register again. This is so that the system will have your up-to-date details.)
We're ready to help you get back to fitness!
