When you start off running, the thought of running 5K might seem a bit like the thought of Jennifer Lawrence asking for your phone number: a nice idea that’s sadly never going to happen. But with some dedicated training, it’s absolutely possible to go from sofa to 5K in just eight weeks. Follow this schedule and you’ll see fitness gains before you know it. If anyone has a schedule for getting Jennifer Lawrence to ask for your number, MR asks them to politely get in touch.
