Say it to me now: I’m going to run a 10K. Yes, you are there. You can do it.
I want you to really say this out loud — to me, your family, your friends — because saying a goal has power. It makes it happen, but it also makes it achievable. And now that you’ve said this goal is a reality, I can’t wait to help you get there with a 10K (6.2 mile) workout plan that I truly believe can help people cross the finish line. .
You’ll find that over the course of six weeks, it incorporates a lot of walking and different forms of exercise — not just running. And I promise you that the combination of yoga, strength training, walking, strength walking, jogging, running and stretching will be the combination you need to put your running or walking game on. to a new level.
Running distances can be complicated. There will be days when you just can’t wait to run out the door and start recording those miles (yes, I promise, this will happen!). But there will also be days when just tying your shoelaces feels impossible. Listen to your body on both days. This plan is meant to be accessible, feasible and flexible. Best of all, this plan is for you.
I also designed it to progress step by step. Whether you’re a novice (hello!) or a seasoned runner (hello!), the best way to hit your goals is to go slow and steady. We’ll avoid plateaus by adding a minute, two or three here and there. We will do strength training and we will rest. We will have a long way to go and we will have a short way. They all aim to serve the same goal.
And most of all, remember, attitude is everything. Never deny your feelings and always take breaks when you need them. But if you can be prepared to move forward, you’ll be in a better place mentally, and that will translate into your running phase.
I can’t wait to cross the finish line with you. Let’s go!
