BEST FOR: A runner who has prior 10K and 5K race experience and wants to bang out a solid 10K effort—or PR.
PHYSICAL PRE-REQS: You should be able to complete a 6-mile run and have experience turning up the pace. If you haven’t, you might want to own a 5K race before taking on this training program, or check out the Another Mother Runner 10K FINISH IT plan.
PLAN OVERVIEW: Ten weeks will take you to a rip roarin’ fast 10K; along the way, you’ll build your cardiovascular base with long runs, hit some hills to up your strength, sprint to get your speed up, and hone in on your race pace. Promise, it’s not as tough as it sounds.
