|This 12-week program is designed to build your conditioning for the 5k distance and help you achieve your next 5k PR.
The goal is to increase your conditioning, tolerance for faster pace running, and to assist you in achieving your next 5k PR.
The program is 12 weeks long with three blocks of training. Each week will include running 3 or 4 days per week including: an easy slow distance day, a speed interval day, a “zone 2” cardio day that can be jogging, biking, or another activity of your choice, and finally a faster pace shorter running day (tempo or threshold intensity). There are two strategically placed “deload” weeks to allow recovery and to set you up for the next phase of the program.
