What can I do on non-running days?
Desk to 5k is different from other 5k plans, because it includes non-running elements which work together to improve your running. On non-running days you will either be stretching or doing your weekly ‘strength for running’. Guidance for both is included in the Desk to 5k plan. Working on strength and stretching will support your running and minimize risk of injury, as well as helping you feel fitter in everyday life, climbing stairs or walking the dog.
