Prior to participating in Achieving You’s 6 week running program I saw running as a necessary evil. In the past I have most certainly had moments of “enjoying running”, but I never loved it. I ran simply because I felt it was an important form of cardio exercise. After the 6 week program, running has now become my favourite form of exercise.
I joined the 6 week program for one express reason – to get back into running after an injury. I injured my knee late last year, and had been sidelined from running for over four months. The program provided me with the ability to start running again in a structured and supportive environment. Within 6 short weeks I went from running 3 km to 10 km.
The information and handouts provided throughout the program have been incredibly helpful. In particular, the detailed information provided on post-run stretches has proven invaluable.
The running program catered for a wide range of running abilities and experience. The atmosphere was incredibly welcoming and supportive. Arising from the program I am up and running again (literally) and I have also improved my running pace and confidence.
As part of the running program I also started going to Achieving You’s Run Club on Saturday mornings. The Run Club is a great way to start the weekend, and I highly recommend it.
