Bespoke training plan for racing 10k

This training plan is created specifically to help you run or race your first 10k or improve your time.

Can one schedule work for both the new racer and the improver?

As mentioned in the details of our 5k program, one schedule to suit everyone will not be perfectly ideal for anyone. That's why, before we start, we need to find out much more about you and your running. Once you have completed and returned your questionnaire, we'll get to work on creating a unique plan just for you.

How does your 10k plan differ from any of the other distance plans you offer?

Well, for a start, all our bespoke plans are different, because you are different. Aside from that, racing at different distances makes different demands of the body. This might be obvious when comparing 10k to a marathon.

But although more subtle, the 10k racer will train differently to the 5k racer. If you are looking to perform optimally at 10k then you will need to be more durable than the 5k racer, and your schedule will reflect this need.

We'll look at where you are coming from in terms of experience at various distances. Perhaps you've run a marathon and need to sharpen up, or maybe you've only just started and need to build a strong endurance base. Either way, your plan will be devised to develop your abilities according to your own circumstances.

Our schedules come in three durations: 8, 16 or 24 weeks.
For some, 8-weeks will be enough, especially for the shorter race-based goals; half marathons and certainly full marathons deserve longer. But the duration you choose really depends on who you are, and how long you want your schedule to last.
