I'm doing a running program with Nathan (age 11). I can already run a few kms. He's not a runner at all. But the aim is that we'll both be doing 5kms in another 5 weeks.
This week we've gone for four walks together. We did 5km today. Tomorrow we do 5km again but do 5 x 60 second runs in that 5kms. Then we gradually build up the length of the runs and cut the recovery time in between them. It seems achievable.
Anyone done anything like this before?
