What if I miss a session?
Try not to miss any runs, ‘strength for running’ or stretching days. All elements of the Desk to 5k work together for your body and mind to adapt to the training. If you do need to miss a session, do your best to avoid missing 2 in a row. If you do miss 2 in a row, repeat that week of the plan. This will add a week to the total length of the Desk to 5k but will make sure you stay on track. Desk to 5k is carefully planned to include a sensible amount of activity and rest, so days shouldn't be swapped around. If you miss a session don't be tempted to try and catch up with yourself - just repeat a week.
