Plan Description

This Novice 5K Training Plan is designed for beginning runners or for runners who want to take a low-mileage approach to prepare for a 5K. It is an eight-week training schedule to help get you to the finish line. It assumes that you are currently active (walking, jogging, cross-training) several days each week.
