FALKLAND HOUSE - C25K GROUP
Starting Wednesday 18th September 2019
Would you like to improve your fitness in a relaxed and non-competitive environment with the support of a group who are experiencing the same struggles? Then you should come along to the C25K Group.
What is C25K?
It is short for Couch to 5K and is an opportunity to gain the ability, over a period of 10 weeks, to run for up to 5 kilometres without stopping!
When will it start?
On Wednesday 18th September 2019 and every following week for 10 weeks. Meet outside Falkland House Surgery at 6.20pm to start at 6.30pm.
Where will it take place?
We will meet outside Falkland House Surgery with the option to finish at The Greystones Public House. Routes for each session will vary to promote progress.
What is involved?
The aim is to assist you in improving your fitness so that you are able to run continuously for 5 kilometres. You will improve at your own pace and hopefully have some fun along the way. The course is run by a qualified run leader over a period of 10 weeks. The focus will be on gaining confidence and improving posture. It is essential that you are able to commit to the majority of the sessions.
What will I need?
Loose-fitting, comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing, trainers, a can-do attitude and some change for a drink in the pub afterwards where we can talk about our experiences and exchange tips. PLEASE NOTE THAT HIGH-VIS JACKETS/TABARDS ARE COMPULSORY (these can be obtained cheaply from sports shops or on-line).
Yes, I’m in. What do I have to do?
Sessions are free and limited to 12 places. To sign up go to www.runtogether.co.uk and search for the Falkland House C25K Group. You will be required to complete a registration form and sign up for each session. In the event of difficulties contact the RunTogether Help Desk.
Contact Nicole Erlen on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. I am really looking forward to meeting you on 18th September 2019!
Why Weight Sheffield
Below is a link to the website for 'Why Weight Sheffield' a free self-referral programme designed to help people achieve long term weight loss though a healthy lifestyle.
Our Patient Participation Group has successfully applied to the British Heart Foundation in conjunction with the Dept of Health to be supplied with a community defibrillator and cabinet. This is a fantastic result for the whole community. A big thank you to Lynn and her team of dedicated volunteers.The cabinet will be sited on the outside wall of the surgery so will be accessible to surgery staff during practice opening hours as well as members of the public when the surgery is closed. More information can be found on our Patient Group page.
