10k Beginners Training Plan - 8 Weeks with training and race tips
Karen Parnell L3 BTF Coach & IRONMAN CertifiedAll plans by this Coach
Would you like to get to the finish line of your first 10K?
Are you stepping up from 5k and want a new challenge?
Then this is the plan for you.
This plan is designed to allow you to finish your first 10k working to your full potential but can be fitted in around your work and life commitments. This plan works on a cycle of three week build and one week re-build. It includes some cross training plus training and race day tips.
We advise that you are should be able to run/walk for at least 20-30 minutes before taking on this plan (if you are not quite there yet why not take a look at the 5K plan which will fit in nicely before this one) and that you should be able to commit to 3-4 sessions a week over the 10 week period.
The plan includes:
- Strength training to help avoid injuries
- Heart rate target zones
- Training and race tips
- Email access to coach
- Rest and Recovery Days
- Stretching routines - follow along videos
I also offer an option to change plans if you feel you need more or less volume etc. I also offer a bespoke planning service to all athletes; if you need a plan built around your lifestyle, strengths and weaknesses, event and time to train but are not ready to have a coach, a bespoke plan is a great option; please get in touch, and we can build a plan that suits you firstname.lastname@example.org and chilitri.com.
