16 week 5k Training Plan-Intermediate

All plans by this Coach


16 Weeks

Plan Description

This is a very advanced 16 week 5k plan geared towards a runner currently running 15 miles per week and capable of completing a 5 mile run. This progam consists of 4 runs per week. Each run has a unique pace determined by the runner's current fitness level (determined by short tests included in the plan). You will retest every 4 weeks to make sure you are training at the correct pace. A pace calculator is included to set the proper pace zones. Detailed instructions are also attached.
I have had great success with this training plan, with all sorts of runners, from beginners to quite advanced athletes, having used this plan to set PRs. I am sure it will work for you to!
