5K Beginner Training Plan
This 8-week 5k beginner training plan gradually builds to 10 miles (16 km)/week with 3 runs/week. It includes easy runs, long runs, and tempo/threshold runs.
The long run starts at 2 miles (3 km) and peaks at 5 miles (8 km) in week 6.
This plan is for beginners who can run 15min at a comfortable pace without stopping. It prepares for a 5K race and is a stepping stone towards the 5K intermediate or the 10K beginner.
I’m only an email away for questions that may arise during the course of this training plan.
