COUCH TO 5K Challenge for swimmers & parents

Posted on 29th June 2020

STARTS TUE 30TH JUNE 2020 @ 6:30PM

We are challenging all our swimmers and their parents to start the NHS Couch to 5K running programme this week.

Couch to 5K is a 9 week programme consisting of 3 x 30 mins sessions per week.

If you FOLLOW the programme you WILL be able to run a distance of 5K non-stop in just 9 weeks.

You can either follow the programme completely on your own using the Android or iPhone apps or standalone podcasts, or by joining other members of PASC on Tue & Thur nights at People’s Park Portadown at 6:30-7:00PM for a coach led session. You will need to do the third run yourself on either a Sat or Sun. At week 6 we will introduce a coach led Sat group session for those who want to follow the programme in a group.

COVID-19 still poses a very real risk and we would ask swimmers and their families to still adhere to social distancing rules while attending the sessions together:

  • Do not attend if you are feeling unwell, and if you have cold/flu like symptoms stay at home for 14 days and seek medical advice if necessary
  • Stay 2m apart from those outside of your household
  • Do not shake hands, hug or ‘high-5’ anyone outside of your household even though you may not have seen friends & training partners in person for a long time
  • Do not share water bottles or pass mobile phones or other personal equipment between each other
  • If you must sneeze or cough do so into a tissue or your elbow and away from others, and dispose of tissues in bins or when you get home

I’m sure you are all very excited for the Armagh Championships being held in Newry on Saturday. PASC have a large team of swimmers entered and we really hope to retain this beautiful cup!

In total we need 12 timekeepers and 6 marshals. 🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️⏱

There will be a sheet at the club desk tonight for you to pick your slot for a time that suits you on Saturday. I know quite a few of you love helping so feel free to do a couple of slots if you wish!

If your new to the world of swimming galas and are perhaps nervous about volunteering for roles don’t be! Speak to the committee members at the desk tonight and they will talk you through what is required! Poolside views are the best!!!!🏊🏻‍♂️🏊🏻‍♀️
