Length

Plan Description

This plan is for those who are active but new to running. No special equipment or training devices are needed; just running shoes and a watch. It gradually introduces you to running through a walk-run training approach and progresses you toward 30 minutes of sustained running by the end of the plan. The plan consists of three 4-week training blocks. Each block ends with a recovery week to allow you to absorb the training before progressing to the next level. This is the first of three "Walk to Run" training plans. Once you complete this plan, progress to the second plan in the series: "Walk to Run (Level 2)."
