12-Week 5K PR Training Plan (Set A New PR)


Coach Mwangi


12 Weeks

Plan Description

This plan is designed for an intermediate to advanced-level runner and someone with a few 5Ks under his/her belt, who is now looking to chase a PR! I have used it with great success. It contains a mixture of both distance and timed runs, and a great variety of workouts. The emphasis of this plan is quality of workouts over quantity of miles, or in other words, intensity over training volume.
