What to Expect
This eight-week training schedule below is designed for beginner runners who want to reach the finish line of a 5K race. It only assumes you can already run at least a mile. Each day on the training plan calls for something different for you to do, whether it's running, cross-training, or resting.
In this training plan, you can expect to run at least three times a week and may also want to incorporate 1 to 2 days of cross-training to help build your fitness and boost your injury resistance. However, this is meant to be a flexible plan, so it's OK to switch days to accommodate your schedule. For example, if you prefer to work out on a Monday or Friday, it's fine to swap a rest day for a run day. Here are some tips for each type of day you'll see in the training plan.
