TRAINING PLAN for Tuesday 6th April

*** Tuesday Training***

I’ve put 3 (sub 30 min, sub 25 min & sub 20 min) 6 week 5k Training Plans here. We will use the Tuesday/Wednesday speed work on the plans the for the next 6 weeks. It would be good if you could use the rest of the plan as well especially if you have races coming up.

Don’t forget to do a good warm before the Tuesday speed endurance and a cool down after.

This is Week 1 of a 12 week 5k plan. the suggested rep times are to achieve a <18 min, <22 min and >26 min 5k. For any other times you can extrapolate/approximate the rep time.If and when we return to Tuesday training I’ll incorporate the Tuesday reps of the plan into the session. Oh and the parkrun on Saturday is a 5k to check progress. There is no need to push the pace on the longer runs, use them as recovery runs. Recoveries should be long enough to enable you to run each rep consistently. Not flat out on the first and then struggle thereafter.

Questions Welcomed. I’ll post week 2 next weekend.
