Advanced Running Programme

For runners aiming to improve on a previous 10K time, or who have a specific goal.

The runs on 3 days per week are designed to be done at an easy pace. Day 5 is a rest day so
be realistic about fatigue and take more days off when you feel the need.

Tempo runs are fast paced runs building up to NEAR 10k pace in the middle and then 10
minutes easy running at the end.

Interval training is where you alternate fast paced running with jogging or walking to
recover. Run 400 metre repetitions at 5K race pace. These can be done on the track,
treadmill or in the park.

X-Training is optional but will make training and the event easier as you become even fitter.
