Is This Plan For You?

This plan is designed to get you ready for your first 10K. Each week has 3-4 workouts, a strength session and 2 days off. There are fitness tests enabling you to train at the correct intensity and track your progress. Workouts are measured in duration to avoid under or over training. You have the option to sync and export to your compatible device (Garmin and more). There is an easier week to aid recovery and adaptation. You should already be jogging 3 times per week and able to jog/walk 35 mins non-stop. Guidance is provided for Heart Rate, Feel or Pace.
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.
