    anyone have any good 10k training schedules?

    Shop Now
    I want to do a 10k race that is in about 9 weeks. I used to be an avid runner, did a few triathlons, but haven't been consistent in running for the past year. I run maybe once a week on avg, but I do a lot of other exercising like swimming and cycling so I am not out of shape. I want to get back into consistent running and I figure that if I make it a goal to run a 10K then I will stick with the training and run more..... anyways, does anyone have any good 10k training schedules??? I'm not looking for anything advanced at this point. Just something to get me back into running...... Thanks.

    I don't run anymore since the club I belonged to introduced me to Mark. They do two sprint sessions and one long run per week, slower than event speed. (Mostly they are training for longer distances.) And cross training. Sound familiar?

    I was initially thinking of doing a more traditional training, but wanted to see if there were any good primal plans too. So you think 2 sprint sessions and one long run is enough? I definitely would like to keep my sprinting in there if I can. I usually do tabata bike sprints once a week and running hill sprints once a week along with bodyweight exercises a couple times per week. Swimming, cycling and walking thrown in there too. I know running isn't the best primal exercise but I want some sort of goal to work towards right now. ever since I stopped competing I miss having something specific to train for.

    The club I belonged to (SacFit) turns out lots of excellent runners.

    Ben Greenfield writes good plans. Or rather, I think he does. I used his ironman plan to complete my first ever half ironman - it was my first ever race.... I didn't run before hand, I hadn't been on a moving bike in an embarrassingly long time. Swimming I could do. Anyway if you sign up for endurance planet's email newsletter, you get the plan free. Since it's free, why not check it out?

    Terrax,
    9 weeks is plenty of time for your 10k. I have coached people from 10k up to 100 milers, provided training plans and knowledge. From one Primal member to you, a gift. I will provide you a training program to follow. No charge at all. Reply if interested.
    Oh BTW, GOAT stands for get out and try...

    Thanks I checked this one out and I like the looks of it- intervals, sprints, and easy long runs. Somewhat primal-ish.
