Our next programme starts in May
See below for further details
In the Spring 2015 Julie appeared on ITV’s This Morning and led 3 special ladies and the rest of the nation on a 5 weeks to 5k programme based on her best selling book of the same name. The ladies did incredibly well with all of them achieving their 5k goal and all of them still enjoying a more active lifestyle as a result (One lady has just received news of her London Marathon ballot place)
Unlike other popular running programmes available this one deals not only with how to run but with the psychological issues new runners face when starting out, the barriers that stop us from getting out the door and it gets participants to face their fears and then do it anyway.
So far more than 1000 women have been through this programme, with many then joining The Clubhouse our online running club and going on to train for 10Ks and Half Marathons and plenty of other women simply enjoying the healthier and happier lifestyle this programme got them hooked on.
So why not join us for a 5 week supported programme to get you up and running in time for our February #OneBigFatRun virtual 5K
The programme starts on 7th May with a welcome week
How does it work?
You will join a closed Facebook Group
You will receive a 5 week to 5k planner to stick to your fridge
You will get weekly motivational videos from Julie
You will be set weekly and daily mindset and running challenges
You will be encouraged to post updates on how you are getting on
You will commit to taking part in #OneBigFatRun our virtual 5K
And most of all you will not be doing this alone, you will have the support of the TFTR team and each other of course, we will even throw in a 5% discount on all TFTR merchandise just for taking part.
If you think £25 is a bit steep for a beginners programme let me assure you, when you get to 5k and feel awesome you will think it is worth every penny. The fact you are paying for a programme like this means you are more likely to get your moneys worth and actually complete the sessions.
What do our women say about the programme?
The support form the other women doing the course was great
Excellent , very clear instructions, very supportive and help encouragement offered when needed, ran by a person who has been there and understands ….. weaknesses the 5 weeks flew over …. would you consider similar thing for the next step maybe once done 5 k you had a programme leading to 10k?
I tried using this as a way to improve my pace a bit, and managed taking off 4mins 4secs from my 5k time 🙂
I loved the group and the way it was non judgemental, we were there together to spur each other on. We didn’t have to as we were strangers, but we did. I have found it life changing, it has helped me psychologically to know I’m not a failure which is how depression can get you. I would never have tried to run 5k without the support of these other wonderful women.
The course was brilliant. Julie set the structure and built a community of supportive and positive people. I can’t think of any weakness, other than it is possible to be under the radar and not participate but then those women would not get out of it what they should. Julie and Diane were great positive and encouraging, their pep talks really helped when things weren’t going well, but what was really surprising was how the women in the group really supported each other.
Great plan to follow, lots of support, facebook made it my daily thing to look at rather than a chore/fitness plan i do alone.
Feel better in myself, generally, sleeping better, seem to naturally be making better food choices. Better mind set.
When I started I couldn’t jog for more than a minute or two without walking. Last weekend I jogged a whole 5k without stopping!!
The support from Julie and the rest of the group is what has spurred me on and made me accountable. As we are all going through the same training struggles, and dealing with life as it hits us, that morale has been the best boost. The pace of ‘exercise’ has been great, steady and surely and got me to my target before i knew it.
