Podcast Running Series

We all know the benefits of regular exercise – the hard part is keeping it consistent, especially when we are unable to attend our usual structured training sessions with motivating coaches and tutors.

As part of our response to Covid 19 restrictions Meath LSP are bringing a complete Podcast Running Series to suits all fitness levels. All Podcast Programmes will consist of a 8-week structured training plan that includes 3 weekly training sessions of 40 minutes each (24 sessions in total for each Podcast Programme). Our tutor Andrea McGuinness will be your own personal trainer and TALK you through 3 sessions each week.
Andrea will be taking part in each session with you, leading you through the entire programme to achieve your goal.

Each podcast programme provides you the opportunity to complete the programme outdoors, in your garden, indoors and can be done at a time that is most convenient to you (please adhere to the 5km restrictions). Once you register with us you will receive your podcast three times a week to complete at a time that suits you.

0-3k Walk to Jog Programme – suitable for complete beginners. If you have always wanted to run but didn’t know where to start, this is just the programme for YOU!! This programme is designed for complete beginners with a step by step guide making it easy to follow and fun to complete. This is also suitable for those returning to exercise after a prolonged absence.

3-5k Jog to Run Programme is aimed at participants who have completed our beginner 0-3k programme and those who have some walking/jogging experience. It is a step by step guide where our tutor Andrea McGuinness will build on your fitness level and bring you to jogging/running a distance of up to 5k.

5k+ Programme is a new programme designed for those who want to further challenge themselves to comfortably run 5k and more. It is recommended for those who have completed the 3-5k programme or have experience of jogging/running up to 3-5k.

Each 8 week podcast programme costs €10 each. On registration you will receive details on how to access the podcast, a smartphone and data coverage are required. You will then receive 3 weekly emails that include the podcast link along with details of warm up and cool down exercises.
