Peloton has launched a brand new "You Can Run Program" - which consists of 2 classes a week for 8 weeks, for a total of 16 classes on the Peloton Tread. It leads you from short periods of running at the beginning to a full 30 minute run by the end of the 8 week program. This is the program we broke the news of the launch about at the beginning of last week. For a slightly more advanced run training program, check out Road To Your 5K.
There is now also an outdoor/audio version of this program - the "You Can Run Outdoor Program". Check that program out if you'd rather do your running outdoors
