Hal Higdon: 8-K--Advanced: This plan is designed for Advanced runners training for an 8-K race. I would define Advanced runners as individuals who compete regularly in races up to 8-K or beyond and who want to improve their performances. You should be capable of running 30 to 60 minutes a day, five to seven days a week and have a basic understanding of how to do speedwork. If that sounds like too much training, and this is your first 8-K race, you might be more comfortable using one of the programs designed for Novice or Intermediate runners. Each day I will send you an email message telling you what to run and also offering training tips. For more information and directions, visit my website at halhigdon.com.
