With over 20 years experience in long distance running I have decided to create a run plan that is a combination of running and lower body workouts. The workouts aim to increase your glute and hamstring strength to prevent injuries and improve your running power.
Once you download my app, your runs will be scheduled directly into your in-app calendar, which will tell you what days you need to run, how many minutes you need to run for and what your rest periods need to be.
To begin with you will be running for a minute, resting for minute, running for a minute, resting for a minute and so on. Until you can begin to reduce your rest periods and extend your running periods. After 8 weeks you will be able to run 10k.
Your in-app calendar will remind you the days you have a run or a short 10 minute strength workout to complete. You will also have me to congratulate you with each run and workout and to keep you accountable.
This running plan is for you if have an active lifestyle and, or if you have run in the past, and would like to get back into it by training for a 10k.
This plan is not about speed for now, but about aiming to keep you consistent with running!
Feel free to repeat a week or take extra rest days if the training feels like it's moving too quickly for you.
Whether you'd like to do your runs on a treadmill or outdoors is up to you.
You can message me in the app and I will send tips for eating and running along the way.
