Thursday Training Plan: 8 Weeks to a FASTER 10k

This programme is one of my staples and works great for pure runners and triathletes racing both sprint and olympic distance. It has been designed for people who run between 35 and 50 minutes currently for 10km and really puts some spark in your legs over the next 8 weeks. To follow this programme effectively I highly recommend some sort of GPS watch like a Garmin and I’ve also included power based workouts if you’ve paired your Garmin with a running power meter like a Stryd.

The primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to RUN FASTER.

Each week of the programme includes four runs with a long run on Saturday and a Track Session on Tuesday. If you don’t have ready access to a track this session can be done on flat area. You can also move the sessions around within the week to best accommodate them in your schedule.

Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full IRONMAN distance finishes and my success coaching hundreds of triathletes.

Get on this great training plan now and be faster in 8 weeks time.
