C25K Pro is designed to convert your average couch potato into a 5-kilometer running machine; hence the acronym, which stands for Couch To Five Kilometers. The application also features Facebook integration so you can keep all of your friends and family up to date on your running or lack there of.
C25K is short for Couch to five kilometers. C25K Pro for your smartphone is designed to get just about anyone from being a couch potato to running either five kilometers or 30 minutes in just nine weeks.
Too many people have been deterred from running simply because they try starting off too fast and too far. Their bodies rebel, and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to do this to themselves. You should ease into your running program gradually, with the help of C25K Pro on your Android device.Couch to five kilometers is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The C25K running plan from Cool Running is a great way to get someone who’s never run before to being a three-mile runner in nine weeks. It alternates running and walking, slowly getting the body accustomed to distance running. It times your workout, letting you know through audio clips when it’s time to switch your pace while listening to the music of your choice or podcasts you’ve downloaded onto your smartphone. For example, switch pace from walking to running, or from running to cooling down. Additionally, if you like C25K, there’s a follow up plan that will get you to 10K.
