Beginners programme.....

Hi All,

I'm back here again.....

It was my 45th birthday yesterday and I plan to start with the beginners training program later today.

3x30 mins sessions for the next 2 weeks.

I do a circuit class once a week and have a short cycle to work everyday and run sporadically.

My target is to get a some routine to my sporadic stop start running

Hi wxjohn

after the 3 days we can look to do a 4k time-trial

if that is not your choice and you reckon 5k is your long-term aim then do a 1500m time-trail

till then

Hi Ed,

My short term aim is time on feet/running. But I am tempted by the 5km programme.

This week I have

Sunday — 40 mins, not fast and probably about my limit
Tuesday — 1 hour circuits, high cardio

and run tonight

Is there any benefits to be had with continuing with this weekly schedule, slow stuff and build a base? Also my legs are tired already

Ultimately I would like to do a 10km sub50 min, and perhaps a half marathon.

In light of my medium term goals. What would you recommend? Should I go for shorter sessions more regularly? How could I structure a weekly schedule around my Tuesday circuit training?

you can convert the 10km program to be more fitting for 5k training

look to do 3 x 2k

then the 1k session etc

let me know your thoughts
