10 KM Beginner - L1
Welcome to the 10k Level 1 Beginner plan!
I’ve designed this for anyone who has already run a 5k and is looking to step up to the next level with some more structured training.
Designed for people targeting a 60 - 80 minute finish time.
- Perfect is you are planning on running your first 10k.
- You should be able to run a 5k before starting this plan.
The first week is 65 minutes.
The biggest week is 135 minutes.
There are three runs each week.
- There is a pace chart with suggested paces for all runs.
The plan is all time based, so perfect if you work in miles or km.
It is 10 weeks in length, with structured training, recovery and taper weeks.
Dedicated session for strength training and suggested exercises.
All the tools you need to get you to your first 10k.. Let me know how you get on, keep in touch, I’m always here to help!
First time using a plan of this nature after completing a few previous 5/10k events.
Found that the plan was simple to follow and got me doing a lot more variety in my weekly runs which I feel really improved my performance and kept me motivated. Highly recommended for anyone whether they are a first time 10k runner or someone looking to improve.
Managed to beat my PB by over 4 minutes and will certainly be looking at using one of the half marathon plans going forward!
