How to Prepare for Your First 5K: Part 3
You have successfully completed your first 5k – now what? Spend some time to enjoy the moment and be proud of what you have accomplished. When you’re ready, it’s time to set your sights on a new goal. Maybe you want to increase your pace and completion time of your 5k, or maybe you want to tackle a 10k!
The program below is a “next-step” from the original 5k training plan.
This program focuses on a higher volume of training plus, higher intensity intervals 1x/week. Your long runs are scheduled weekly and typically on a weekend when you have a little more time available.
Now that you have gained the confidence and know-how to start, don’t stop! Ride on the momentum of your current success – good luck!
