Feeling confident in your 5k and ready to take it to the next level? Many athletes are capable of completing a 5k, but this plan will help you complete that same 5k with a faster time! This structured training plan will focus on your ability to maintain a higher sustained pace through Steady-State and Threshold level workouts. These portioned workouts will push your limits of what you may normally sustain and build your threshold pace to allow you to sustain faster speeds for longer periods. In just 8 weeks, you'll be on your way to a faster 5k.
This 8-week plan is best suited for beginner runners up to intermediate runners.
Before beginning this plan, athletes should be able to complete a 5k jogging for the entirety of the event.
