Newest Partner: C25K App Coaches You to Your First 5K in 8 Weeks

In This Article

Go from couch-sitting to 5K-running in 8 weeks with C25K from our newest partner, Zen Labs.

Available on both iPhone and Android, C25K is a training program designed for people new to running and takes the intimidation factor right out of the prospect of running your first event. The app guides you through an 8-week workout plan, alternating between walking and running, until you build enough strength and stamina to run the streets of your town. C25K will coach you to work out 3 times a week, ideally with breaks in-between running days, for 30-40 minutes per session.

And now, C25K integrates with MyFitnessPal, so all of your exercises and calories burned sync straight to your profile.

C25K is custom-built for anyone who wants to start running but isn’t sure exactly how, and those who dream of finishing a short race but don’t have a ton of time to devote to the endeavor. It’s also perfect for anyone recovering from an injury or coming back to running after a break. If you are a seasoned runner who has been sidelined for a while, C25K is a great tool to gradually get you back on the fast track without going too hard, too soon.
