All plans by this Coach


16 Weeks

Plan Description

This is the perfect program for the new athlete who wants to begin to run but doesn't want to get hurt. Workouts are 3 times a week and time based so you don't need to go to a track or buy a fancy GPS watch. This 16 week program starts with running 1 minute at a time and finishes 4 months later with running 40 minutes straight. After this program, you could complete a 5K, or use your new found base to prepare to run faster. Have fun!!
