About PDF

  • The plan lasts 9 weeks. It slowly builds up your running ability from scratch to running 5K (3.1 miles).
  • Each week has 3 running sessions. There is a day of rest between each session to allow your body to recover.
  • The plan starts with alternating between walking and 60 seconds of jogging. It gradually increases the jog time and decreases the walking time each week.
  • By the end of the plan, you will be running 30 minutes nonstop – enough to complete a 5K race.
  • The key is to go at your own pace and listen to your body. Don’t feel compelled to run if you need a rest day. Progress is slow and steady.
