Plan Description

Who is this plan for:
This plan is for the runner looking to add more weekly distance. Add more intensity in the form of intervals as well as a focus on hill training which is an important aspect for the transition from beginner to intermediate runner.

Mimimal requirements:
To start this plan, runners need to have been running seriously for a few years, training all year round, have raced at a variety of different distances and are doing regular interval work

Goal:
For the runner who is looking to step up training and improve finishing times. Ideal for a runner trying to break 20min time barrier.

This ADVANCED program focuses on race feel. This means doing intervals at or faster than your 5km goal pace. Recovery between intervals will be short as this is what it will be like in the race itself.
