Is it possible to get 0-5k training programme to do at home indoors? I would like to start running but am nervous about starting my training outside in public when I can’t even run to the end of the road!

  • I don't have an actual answer for you, but all I can say is: just go for it! Being outside for exercise is infinitely better than inside. It will probably give you better motivation to finish the program. Good luck! Dec 21, 2020 at 8:41

I completely understand where you're coming from. If you're solely looking for an indoor workout plan, I'd highly recommend YouTube! For example, HoyPro frequently posts great indoor workouts and has one specifically tailored towards 5k prep.

My personal favorite when it comes to getting motivated is the Let's Inspire YouTube channel!

I hope this helps!


If you are specifically asking about something like "Couch to 5k", sort of? If you have enough room to do a loop in your house, or have a treadmill, there are plenty of programs out there. I'm a personal fan of the Zombie Run 5k app (also available on Apple), but it's not completely free (you get to experience the first 2-3 weeks free and then I think it's something like $5). I just like having a narrative to my running. In my opinion, this inside training doesn't quite teach you to actually run because your strides will be necessarily foreshortened, but it does a pretty decent job of getting your cardio up, particularly since most C25k programs are less about distance and more about time and effort.
