Running Program for First 5K
I have completed your beginners running program 3. My next aim is my first 5K in July this year. Answer by Dominique:
How to prepare? Is the 10K Running Program suitable for this purpose?
Thanks for your question.
Great to hear that you have completed Beginners Running Program 3
Now that you are able to run 30 minutes non-stop you should be able to complete a 5k race.
The 10K Running Program
is a great program to continue your running experience.
Between now and your race you have got a good 2.5-3 months. Doing the 10k running program will have you run longer than the 5k distance regularly.
It will also introduce you to some tempo running
, which will help make you stronger and faster.
By the time you do your race you should be well conditioned to not only complete the 5k, but do it quite fast as well.
When you get even more experienced I would get you to do intervals
as well. But when you are new to running I think it is better to focus on easy running and tempo running, so the 10k running program suits your purpose very well.
Hope this helps.
