1. Couch to 5K
You can use this program to train for your first 5K (three mile) race or just to get yourself into running shape.
If you’ve never run before in your life, Couch to 5K is the program to jumpstart your workout! It uses interval training to help you walk less and run more on your routes. To start, you alternate 90 seconds of walking with 60 seconds of jogging, and by the end of the nine-week program, you’re running three miles straight!
Already running but want to push it to a half or a full marathon? Hal Higdon’s Marathon Training Program can get you there.
