WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS PROGRAM
This program is designed specifically to lead you into a 10km race. It is highly specific to a 10km event and this program assumes that you have already been training, for at least 4 weeks - you may have already done a 10km race or a few 5km races and can currently manage training runs of up to 10km.
This 6 week lead-in plan progresses through 5weeks of preparation (which will see your longest run of 13km and longest total week of 35.5km), prior to entering a 1 week taper.
At The Distance, our running programs are designed using training fundamentals proven to enhance performance. Inserted strategically each week are various forms of aerobic, anaerobic and high intensity running specific training sessions.
At The Distance, we fundamentally believe in teaching our athletes the art of pacing. This program is based around Perceived Feel of effort rather than Heart Rate or speed. Every single session specifies a pace/effort that you should complete it at. If you change the pace/effort of the prescribed session, you will change the physiological outcome of the session.
Consistency is the key to this program. Most weeks have 3 recovery days per week. This program will get you to the start line in really good shape as a result of the overall work, so do your best to remain consistent with your training.
