Remember to always consult a physician before taking up a new training regimen.
5K Training Plan For Beginners: This plan is perfect for those who are new to running a 5K. You’ll begin your week with cross-training followed by a 30-minute walk the following day. A mix of running/walking and cross-training is incorporated throughout the week. Fridays are for rest.
5K Training Plan For Intermediate Runners: The intermediate plan is for runners with a few races under their belt. This training schedule is a bit more intense and combines a mix of speed work, cross-training and tempo runs. As always, rest is required to help your muscles mend.
5K Training Plan For Advanced Runners: This training plan is best for a seasoned 5k runner. The schedule starts with a 3-mile run and progresses into speed work and tempo runs. Rest time is interspersed throughout the plan.
