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!!
