At the core of Run with Ben is the belief that anyone can run – and find the huge amount of rewards and joy that running can bring you.
Supporting those at beginner level or looking to get into running for the first time – or after time out from running – is a big part of what we do, and it’s why we’ve developed the new Run with Ben Zero-5k Coaching Package.
Here are five reasons why it might be for you if you’re looking to lace up and get running!
While there is a set, achievable 10-week structure to take you to 5k (3.1 miles), the plan is also adapted to work for you, your schedule, and experience.
The package starts with a consultation – based around an initial questionnaire on your health, schedule, experience and more – to help guide where tweaks should be made to ensure it works as best as possible for you.
A big part of the Run with Ben Zero-5k package is the support available to you during the 10 weeks. You have the chance to access email support whenever you need it. We can also arrange a phone call(s) if it’s helpful to you.
Knowing there is a coach available to answer any questions you may have, and to offer advice and encouragement, is a helpful element to make it even more achievable for you.
Many beginner running plans and apps focus solely on running – for example three runs a week and nothing else. This is workable, but it’s not ideal.
Any effective running plan needs to include an element of strength work to help you build some foundation and core strength that supports your running and helps prevent injury.
The Run with Ben Zero-5k package includes a basic strength training routine, with instructions, that’s included as part of the weekly plan to ensure you have the best chance of success.
Running, like anything, can be done effectively and economically, or it can be done in a way that’s potentially injurious and ineffective for you.
When accessing the Run with Ben Zero-5k package you’ll also get advice on what good running form looks like, with tips and visualisations to help you while you’re out running.
Awareness of how you’re running will help you progress and run as well and effectively as possible.
Importantly, this plan is 10 weeks in duration as opposed to many plans which are shorter. This helps to make it more achievable for you, and progresses you in a slightly slower and safer way.
This also makes the Run with Ben Zero-5k package more accessible to absolute beginners, as well as those who are looking to return to running after time out.
