5K Training Programme - (you can do yourself) Featured

This is a very simple 4 week programme for 5K distances you can do yourself while no club training sessions

All sessions are based around time and lampposts, so you don’t need a fancy GPS to do them: a standard analogue watch will do. The sessions are easier than at the club, because you’re training on your own, but they give you some structure.  Why not run the two sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday as we do at the club, and if possible a longer slower run or walk at the weekend.  Of course, you can increase or decrease the number of reps.  Be great to see how you've improved to why not comment on facebook article with you time before you start the programme and your time after completion.  (or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
