Summary

This plan is created for people who just finished their first 5Km and are now looking into running a 10Km for the first time.

It contains only Running and Strength & Conditioning sessions.

The Zones used for the workouts are based on Effort, NOT on Heart Rate. Z1 being really easy and Z5 being extremely difficult.

Key Sessions [K] are sessions that are not to be missed, in order to work through the objective the the person is looking to accomplish in 8 weeks.

Support Sessions [S] are sessions that are highly recommended to be completed, if not 100% at least at a 80%. This sessions will usually act as a recover or ¨warming up¨ factor for the sessions that are coming up or that were completed the day before.

Optional Sessions [O] are to be completed ONLY if the person has the time and energy to do them. They do not hurt if done, but it also will not have a negative impact in the program and results, if they are not completed.
