Interview of a Personal Trainer on Couch to 5K
How long is a 5K? 3.1 miles
What if I can’t run? The whole idea is to complete the 5k whether you walk or run, just so you know you can do it.
The goal is to get your body used to moving more. Who knows? You may get the added benefits of losing weight
and feeling better. Walking is good exercise for your whole body, including the heart.
What kind of gear will I need? Good walking or running shoes are a must. You do not want to wear flat bottomed
shoes with no support. Proper body alignment is important when exercising.
