5 Km BEGINNER Running Plan
Pinnacle MultisportAll plans by this Coach
This plan is aimed at the BEGINNER who would like to start running but does not know where to start.
The plan will take you from couch to running 5 kms. The plan is written in easy to understand language and time based. To ensure a good all round level of fitness there are days when you can cross train or ride a bike. Cross training will help with core strength as well as cardio and help to break up the weeks from just running and variety. If not up to cross training then rest on these days.
The plan is to start on a Monday.
After completing the 12 week plan you will have a base fitness to run your first 5 km race. Hopefully enjoying it and with a view to progressing to 10 kms or more
