A Beginner 10K Training Plan Anyone Can Do

yesoh with me now: I’m going to run a 10K. Yes, you there. you’ll make it

I want you to say this out loud, to me, to your family, to your friends, because talking about a goal has power. It makes it real, but it also makes it attainable. And now that you’ve made this goal a reality, I can’t wait to help you reach it with a 10 km (6.2 mile) training plan that I truly believe can help everyone cross the finish line.

You will see throughout the six weeks that you incorporate a lot of walking and different types of exercise, not just running. And I promise you, this combination of yoga, strength training, walking, hiking, jogging, running, and stretching will be the combination you need to take your running/walking game to the next level.

Running distances can be tricky. There will be days when you can’t wait to rush out and start logging those miles (yes, I promise, this is going to happen!). But there will also be days when simply tying your shoes feels impossible. Listen to your body on both days. This plan is meant to be accessible, feasible and flexible. Above all, this plan is for you.

I have also designed it to progress in increments. Whether you’re a novice (welcome!) or a seasoned runner (hi!), the best way to get to a goal is to go slow and steady. We are going to avoid plateaus by adding one, two or three minutes here and there. We’re going to strength train and we’re going to rest. We are going to have long runs and short walks. Everything is at the service of the same goal.

And above all, remember, attitude is everything. Never deny your feelings, and take those breaks when you need them, always. But if you can put yourself in gear to move forward, you’ll be in a better place mentally, and that will translate to your career.

I can’t wait to cross the finish line with you. Let’s go!
