Plan Description

Hal Higdon: 8K Advanced: This plan is designed for Advanced runners training for an 8K race. I would define Advanced runners as individuals who compete regularly in races up to 8K or beyond and who want to improve their performances. You should be capable of running 30 to 60 minutes a day, five to seven days a week and have a basic understanding of how to do speedwork. If that sounds like too much training, and this is your first 8K race, you might be more comfortable using one of the programs designed for Novice or Intermediate runners. Each day I will send you an email message telling you what to run and also offering training tips. For more information and directions, visit my website at halhigdon.com.
