ABOUT THE SUB-20 MINUTE
5K PLAN

The main focus for the 5k distance is developing speed endurance, that is, your ability to maintain higher paces and resist fatigue that causes you to want to drop your pace.

 

On race day, we can rely on crowds and atmosphere, along with the person you’ve never met before but decided you have GOT to beat!

ARE YOU READY FOR THE SUB 20
5K CHALLENGE?

You’ll already be a confident runner able to cover the 5k distance in 21-25 minutes (a recent time - not your PB from a few years ago!)Most importantly, you’ll start this plan fit & healthy with at least 6 weeks of consistent running leading into it, so we know you have a base level of fitness.

ENJOY IT!

In completing this training plan, we want to focus on consistency. Be honest about your other commitments, and make time in your diary not only for the sessions themselves but also for your recovery (that’s not just doing nothing… think sleep, stress management & nutrition)

Remember to enjoy yourself! Running fast is fun, and you’ve obviously got a flair for it if you’re chasing down this goal. 

 

Fast Runners exude confidence, so nurture your confidence in your ability to get it done, and when race day comes, it’s a victory lap!
