Is This Plan For You?

This plan is designed to get you ready for your first 10K. There's a fitness test in the 1st and every 8th week to enable you to train at the correct intensity. The workouts are measured in duration so you spend the right amount of time on your feet to avoid under/over training. There are 3 to 4 runs and a strength workout each week. Every 4th week is easier to enable recovery and adaptation. To be successful with this plan you should already be jog/walking 2 to 3 times per week and ideally able to jog/walk 15 mins. Guidance is provided for Heart Rate, Feel or Pace. You can start this plan any Monday.Still not sure? We will happily switch your plan within 14 days of purchase.

My Pro Coach

I have 20 years experience of helping amateur athletes surpass their goals, while still making sure they have quality time available for family, friends and career. As a parent who works for a living, I know how challenging this can be.

My training plans are intelligently designed around a typical work week. I set proven, time-efficient workouts in mid-week, with longer aerobic workouts at the weekends. This gives you the structure and consistency you need to continually improve.
