What is it? What is involved?
The plan will offer 3 or 4 running sessions per week as well as offer suggestions for developing strength. The running sessions will offer a variety of workouts from 1 minute to 12 minutes, building gradually over a period of weeks, interspersed with periods of walking recovery.
It'll be safe, structured, and just the right balance of challenging and achievable. The plan progresses gradually avoiding overtraining or injury. This will prepare inexperienced runners for their first 5k event.
