This 6 week intermediate 5K training plan and aimed at runners who can easily run for up to 30 minutes (up to) four times a week. The training plan will include easy runs and some interval training to help you with your next 5k race.
Before setting out on an exercise regime you are well advised to visit your doctor for a check-up. A good doctor will be pleased to see you and should give you some advice on setting out – particularly if you have had a health problem like asthma or suffer from carrying excess weight.
On the day of the race, don’t try any food/drinks/gels that you haven’t tried before in training. Stick to what you’re used to.
